WE loved every minute of our stay, the staff can only be described as friendly and fantastic.
We stayed on the third floor and on our next stay we will upgrade to one of the rooms near all the action (pool and bar etc)
One of the down sides was that it isn't in the heart of the shopping strip, the upside though is that you don't get that shocking smell from the open sewers.
The food is sensational, not only at the Chaba Cabana but also at any of the restaurants in the Chaweng Road strip.
The rooms are clean and the staff friendly, what more could you ask for.
Do yourselves a favour and go to Koh Samui!!!!!!

My Husband and I stayed at the Chaba Cabana in early May 2008 and chose this hotel after reading many good reviews on TripAdvisor. We were given a honeymoon suite which was adequate with a very distant sea view and I have to say that this hotel was not what we expected. The rooms are dated and quite basic with very small bathrooms although the bed was comfortable and cleaners did a good job of keeping the rooms fairly spotless.
Also, the hotel staff were not overly friendly and welcoming (apart from the girls at breakfast). They usually just go about their daily routines and wouldn’t even bother to say hello when passing by. This is very different from the exceptional service we have encountered in other Far Eastern destinations. The beach is the best feature of this hotel as it is very clean and not too overcrowded.

We didn’t eat at the hotel as there is an abundance of bars and restaurants on the main strip which contrary to what people say is actually a good 25 minute walk away and not 10 minutes like some people say – we always got a taxi out and back to the hotel every night unless you want to walk along an unlit, pitch black beach for half an hour!!
Overall we would rate this hotel more a 3 star than 4 – with mediocre accommodation and very bland service. Ko samui is an amazing island so we did have a fantastic holiday but in my opinion the best hotels to stay at would be the Iyara, Chaweng Regent or Amari Palm Reef Resort as they were better for quality and location.

Last stayed in this hotel 5 years ago and sadly has gone somewhat downhill since then.
Beware the extra 17% added to hotel bills-government tax and service charges.
The service has slipped-staff not as friendly and helpful as before.
The beach in front of the hotel is littered with plastic bags, bottles etc.
Over-development is definitely taking its toll on what used to be an amazing place.

This hotel is wonderful! We stayed here for 12 days and can honestly say I was really gutted when leaving. The staff are fantastic ... always smiling and so attentive. The breakfast buffet is great and the meals in the restaurant excellant! We ate there a few times and were never disappointed. The italian next door is pretty good too! I don't think you can beat the location of this hotel. It's right on the beach and the view is great. The rooms are very clean and although the wardrobe is small it's perfectly adaquate. The beds were firm but really comfortable and thanks to one of the cleaners we found that if we put the bottle opener on the magnetic key holder, the airconditioner and fan stayed on! The beachbar was great fun. From T on the lunchtime shift to Chai on nights they made being there so much fun! The spa is good and the beach hut massage is great and very cheap. Chaweng itself is very busy but good for lively bars and restaurants. I personally didn't like all the bartering probably because I'm not very good at it but I did get some good bargains! I loved being able to walk for 10 minutes into the hustle and bustle if I wanted it but 9 out of 10 times we found ourselves at the Chaba bar in the evening. I can't wait to return next year..same time, same place! It's the best!!!!!!!
Just one more thing.... the hotel has an unofficial dog. She's lovely and we named her chaba ...don't know why!!?? Anyway she was heavily pregnant and on the day we left she hadn't been seen all day. I think she may have gone somewhere to have her pups! She's a brown and white mongrel and very affectionate. If anyone sees her would they post a message just to let people know how she is!!!

We had our honeymoon here in the first two weeks of April 2008. It was fantastic. They set up the honeymoon suite with petals on the bed and even made us a honeymoon cake! The staff were all really friendly and the hotel immaculately clean. Definately on the best & cleanest bit of Chaweng beach, great for families. We ate in many different restaurants & hotels, but the best meal by far was in the Chaba Cabana's own restaurant. It was a really short transfer journey too, which was nice after such a long flight from the UK. Brilliant place-Highly recommend it!
