We liked this resort. It was on the beach and very convenient. Lovely pool area.everything is clean. Breakfast was god with a huge selection of different Western and Asian choices. Spa prices were reasonable although more expensive than in the town. Good location but we found it very noisy at night with many pubs having loud music so sitting on your bedroom balcony was not peaceful at all. Will prefer a hotel further north or south next time.Friendly and helpful staff

Room Tip: Choose sea view wing

This hotel needs a bit of updating. We stayed for 4 nights which was quite long enough. I found the staff a little mediocre upon arrival and we had a few problems which taxi arrival to transport us to the airport upon departure. The location is good and it was nice to be able to walk straight onto the beach. Biggest disappointment was no free Wi-Fi. Could walk down the street and buy a coffee and get free Wi-Fi at any number of restaurants/pubs in the area. Was just a fairly average stay. Buffet breakfast was really good though.

After booking through an agent I was a bit concerned by some negative reviews I read a couple of months ago. I had previously walked through the grounds and liked the location, so was hoping it would be OK. Well, we had a pleasant surprise. Very friendly, helpful and efficient staff, rooms were fine, nice pool and good beach. My only negatives would be paying for wifi, some late night music and poor reception on the Australian Network, but really minor issues. We stayed on the beach side, check before you book. It is 4 storeys with a lift and has tour groups come through. I noticed how many old bungalow resorts have been demolished and new hotels and shops being built. Samui is constantly changing and this hotel is probably one of the older ones there now.

We stayed here in September for 8 nights
After reading a few of the negiative reviews i was worried about the hotel
but no need we stayed in the Lake view wing there was a bit of noise at night from the bar ( but i found drinking a few beers before bed helped me sleep) so if you want peace then book a ocean view The food was ok at breakfast .Staff were excellent always helpful. The rooms were stocked with everything you need from slippers to umbrellas and may need a lick of paint just to brighten up.The rooms were cleaned EVERY day with fresh towels and sheets.
The hotel holds a themed evening every night ( please try to attend one as they work really hard on these) Over all a great little hotel

We stayed here as it was next door to the Kings Garden resort we stayed at. The pool and beach front inc sun loungers etc were good including the massage service. The room we had was ground floor and smelled of urine. As we only stayed for one night and were exhausted we remained there and had a reasonable stay. For the price it is worth a stay here if on a budget, good location, nice staff, cleaning ok and ultimately has everything you need and seemed family friendly for those who have children.

We stayed for just over a week at the Chaba. While the room was older style, it was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good as was the beachside pool, and service was excellent. There are probably better resorts in Koh Samui, but over all it was a nice stay.

Room Tip: Ask Tony to book you a tour to Koh Tao........Great day out.
