“Nice beach location”
Reviewed 13 November 2012

What you looking for at Chaweng is a nice beach location. Chaba Samui has that. Started on a hotel to far from the central night life. 25 minutes was to far, but Chaba is under 10 minutes from the best restaurants and the clubs, when you want them. You dont want to live "in" the clubs as they never closes.

They have a evening restaurant in the garden with very nice prices, and different themes every evening. They have a pool, next to the beach, with full service and also here nice prices. Its a pool on top of the lake view building too, but never saw any guests there.

It was a very nice stay for a very nice price.

Room Tip: We chose the ocean view building, as its located on the beach, and not on the other side of the road...

Had a lovely stay at the chaba for 10 nights early oct. My friend who is wheelchair bound found it quite accessible as the grounds are flat. Staff were always there to help and assist us. Breakfast was great especially the egg station. Pool is good and so was the massages which my friend was able to get done in his room due to him being unable to get to the massage tables. It might be a little bit outdated, but what the heck, your there for a holiday, not to spend all the time in your room. And as for other comments re staff not speaking very good english," WELL HELLO" they are thai and that is their language.

The hotel has everything you need - a lovely pool, good pool bar, nice restaurant and right on the beach. Its just a few minutes walk from the restaurants, bars and shops but quiet enough at night to let you sleep.

We stayed in the ocean wing and had a lovely room, even extended our stay by one night. Night time reception girl is totally unhelpful - didnt pass on the message that we had booked another night (through agoda.com rather than the hotel who were charging almost double the price) and had staff coming to us on the beach to check departure time. This was a minor inconvience and we really enjoyed our stay.

The hotel provided transport to get us back to the Airport at a minimal cost.

Room Tip: Pick a room in the Ocean Wing - we were told this was a quieter part of the hotel!

Pros - very had a very good deal for one night at this hotel. The room was big and clean and the pool area is big and the beach is clean and nice.

Cons - The hotel itself is a bit outdated. The staff did not speak English very well.

Bottom line - we booked a room for about 55 $US without breakfast. I advice you to book with breakfast because Chaweng beach wakes up late.

Room Tip: Ocean wing only.

I booked via Agoda and opted for the Ocean wing vs. the Lake Wing because the Ocean wing was only $6 more. I was surprised to find out on my arrival that my booking was made for the Lake Wing and the room given to me was the top floor, furthest from the Ocean, and next a busy road and busy bars. Needless to say I wasn't happy. I politely asked the hotel if they could move me to the Ocean Wing if I paid the difference as offered on Agoda, of course they needed to ask the Manager who didn't even bother to leave their office and instead sent the desk staff back to me to say it's not possible. Of course it's possible, it's up to you to go out of your way for the customer...Hospitality is not in the vocabulary of most hotels in Thailand I've found. They expect flexibility from their guests but scoff when you ask for them to be flexible. The room I have is next to a very noisy person, either that or the walls are too thin to keep out the noise. Anyways I've been woken up twice early in the morning because of that.

I had previously stayed at the Chaba Cabana on a different part of Chaweng which I liked better because of the hotel premises...staff wasn't much more helpful when it came to anything outside the norm tho.

Room Tip: Book the Ocean Wing via Agoda and make sure you get close to the pool.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 days and had a good experience. The staff were especially service minded and friendly and the rooms were in good order. The food at the beach bar/restaurant was very good indeed and had good value.

The hotel also features a lot of geckos, which I guess you could call either a bad or a good thing. For me, I like the little critters and they eat the more annoying pests and it made for a few good photographs!

The rooms are decent; they're not especially roomy and the bathrooms are cramped and outdated, but the beds were nice, the aircon worked superbly and I slept well.

Overall a 4/5 !
