Chaweng Villa Beach Resort
Ranked #98 of 104 Hotels in Chaweng
Reviewed 24 March 2013

We booked the hotel on line.We were initialy disapointed in the rooms, but got used to it after some time.Periodic sewer smells take some getting used to it.Some problems solving took care of the problem.The housekeeping is good enough,but not super.The staff is very friendy.The hotel is located very well with a very good pool and very nice beach.I would come back no problems.

Room Tip: Most rooms appear to be in good locations away from the city noise,however being under the Ko Samui...

I'm never sure about Lonely Planet recommendations so I decided to try one out. Epic fail. Never again will I listen to Lonely Planet blindly. TripAdvisor has a much better resource of reviews and ratings from independent travelers.
I try to see the good in any place I stay and ill say that the friendly attentive service of some of the staff was really very nice. The concierge/travel planning lady was awesome. Helped us find a good excursion and was very informative. One of the staff always has a smile on his face and is always attentive.
The bad: we chose the garden view villa knowing that they were old so I accept the blame. But the floor boards had open spaces between them and I wouldn't be surprised if someone fell through them soon. Granted this is thailand and there is life everywhere but a mouse in the room was a little surprising and it could easily be explained by the wide open drain pipe in front of the toilet. Which we asked to be covered but was ignored.
Again I chalk this up to 'first World expectations' and I try not to be that type of traveller but overall the appearance of the grounds was messy and unkempt and considering the price I was a bit disappointed with the room and the grounds.
Breakfast was hilarious because everything was cold. Except the fresh eggs which they made (positive). The bacon was cold which I found particularly strange.
Overall none of this is particularly bad if we were paying less for the truly great beachfront location. But we found a hotel down the road for cheaper with excellent facilities and service. Though some don't like the party atmosphere of arkbar, we had no issue with it and enjoyed the far superior facilities.
If you are a young or mature couple looking for a peaceful or romantic getaway DON'T GO TO CHAWENG BEACH AT ALL. Go to one of the quieter beaches you will thank yourself for staying away. If you are young friends (like us) or young couple looking to party stay at ArkBar. Great facilities, great price, great location. I see no real reason to stay at chaweng villa.

The rooms were dated, the bathroom was so dirty and disgusting that I couldn't bear to use it!
The air con was noisy.
The service was terrible. The beach area was covered in litter.
The only ok bit was the pool.
Overall you couldn't pay me to come back and it definitely isn't a 3 star! I'd be pushed to give it 1!

Uncomfortable is all I can say about this place - from the non-working AC's, splinter-causing wood floors, broken shower head, single beds for a couple, the don't- give- a- s***t reception staff.... the other guests all said the same but they were on a package and so were STUCK.

Not to be totally negative, the bar served cold beer and the free buffet breakfast was quite good.

We got out of there after the 2nd night of sweating and being eaten alive by mosquitoes and moved to Cheong Mon Beach just up the coast.

Room Tip: Stay at another resort/hotel

We stayed here after extending our holiday in Koh Samui and then having our previous resort booked out.

It was a fairly cheap hotel and $55 au a night, so I guess you get what you pay for.

Our room was dirty and we used thongs on our feet in the bathroom as we were not sure how clean the bathroom floor was.
Our towels were dirty and looked like they had stained blood on them, so we asked for new ones and at first they said we needed to wait until the morning. Which we refused to do.

The complimentary vanity products were in used plastic bottles and looked like they had been re used and the door handle to the room was nearly broken off.

You needed to pay for wi fi and when I lost the little piece of paper the password was written on an hour later after breakfast the staff wanted to charge me again!

The breakfast was poor, there was no fruit and you needed to make your own tea and coffee.

Staff at the front desk had very very poor English and when I asked them to call the jungle club (a well known bar that picks you up and takes you to the mountain) the man at the front desk had never heard of them!

I would not recommend this resort. Ok if you are a back packer but I wouldn't pay the $55 for the room!

I booked Chaweng Villa Resort after my week at Ark Bar Resort, i booked the deluxe room, i didn't want any surprises or any smelly or hear through bungalows, it could have all passed as an okay stay but guess what? It didn't... the bathrooms! The bathrooms OMFG, extremely dim lit for a start, no air ventilation so expect the smell to ravage the whole room if u ever decide to take a dump :D, also the shower curtain is as tiny as a G string on a Rhino's butt, no bathtub, just tiles, so if u try to take a shower then it's the Mississippi river in your bathroom baby.....

Bottom line, it's really close to the party places of chaweng, so if u manage to use the bathroom elsewhere or shower outside then this is the place for you... otherwise, tough luck kiddie :D , ill attach the bathroom pic for your viewing pleasure

I'll start off the the things that could use a little attention. First and foremost is the bathroom in my bungalow. The shower head needs replacing. All the holes are plugged except maybe 7 or 8 streams of water actually coming out in different directions. The grout in the shower was literally black and had tiny little ants coming up through the drain as well as the bathroom sink drain. The cleaning of rooms here definitely needs to be stepped up. As far as I can tell, they make your bed and give clean towels, maybe sweep, but, as far as I can tell, do not actually clean anything. The walls and everything else needs a good scrubbing if not new paint. Furniture outside awful. The good is the location. Everything at your doorstep and really not bad for noise considering where you are. The pool is great and the beach is its best feature. Yes there are better beaches, but not in this price range, about $65 including all taxes. Good breakfast with plenty to pick from. The staff do not go out of their way to be friendly but they seem competent and will help when asked. After checking some other beaches and hotels, we may actually stay a few days more. Would I recommend this "resort", check around first. If this seems to be the best deal, then it's doable.
