This hotel has the most beautiful view of beach and pool area looks right onto it. You can lounge off in restaurant beds and look out on to the ocean with some cocktails. Felt like paradise landing here after 5 days at full moon. There are plenty of sun loungers at pool and beach for all. Rooms are nice and clean with fantastic shower facilities - they did have a few mosquitos but I doubt this can be avoided beside a beach. Had some confusion with payments and orders with staff in restaurant but nothing that wasn't easily solved. It is quiet a walk if you want a bit of night life (about 20-25 mins along the beach), taxi is only a couple hundred baht though. We were happy to leave the night life though and stick to this paradise of a hotel for most of our stay

Room Tip: Ask for room away from road. If you have the money get a beach side room. They have beautiful view

We stayed at a beach front bungalow for 2 weeks and it was amazing to have our own terrass right on the beach. Definitly worth it. But we had a few issues when we arrived. First the toilet did not flush, we told the receptionist and they fixed it right away. Then we saw antz crawling around our bed and a few also crawled up into the bed. I went the the reception again late at night and they fixed it right away. The restaurant are very nice, the thai food is really good and the staff there are amazing. When we checked out the receptionist accused me of stealing a pair of slippers from the room. I had not seen any slippers in our room during our two weeks of stay. This was very condensing and not the perfect way to end our holiday in Thailand. Despite this we had a wonderful stay. The resort is very quite and are perfect for couples who wants a relaxed holiday.

The resort was very nice and the pool very pretty, overlooking the beach. The rooms are small but very pretty! We stayed in a garden bungalow cause is one of the most tranquil areas. The rooms on the beach looked very nice too, but you would have people on the beach just below you all day sun baking.

The breakfast was nice, served on a little bar restaurant overlooking the beach. The food was very nice, not too much variety but nice.

The people were all nice and kind too.

The only thing that annoyed was one of the receptionists who told me I could not have a third large towel ( I have long hair) and that there was no paddle boarding offered on the hotel beach.

The beach offered paddle boarding, for 300/400 bath for an hour, jetski, sailing, massage.. A lot! There also done local people selling food at the beach, very cheap, like corn on the Cobb or satee', everyone seemed to love it.
It looked pretty clean, however the bathroom wasn't really cleaned properly on our first night, errrrr.

There a lot if Mosquitos so make sure you bring some mosquito repellent, as we bought one from the nearby pharmacy for about $20.. Also make sure you always check the prices in the pharmacy cause they try to sell you the most expensive thing, but if you ask they'll have a cheaper alternative for half the price.

The hotel is 20 minutes walking from the centre of Chaweng beach, where the clubs and bars are, or 10 minutes by taxi ( about 200 bath).

We ate often at NO1,just 2 minutes away from the resort and it was very nice, clean and cheap. There is also a 24/7 familymart in front of the resort.

I hope it helps!

We booked for two nights in the beach front bungalow a few months in advance. Had confirmation email and all was well until we checked in. After travelling for 24 hours we were told they not only double booked us but they knew they had done so and did not bother to tell us in advance (they had our full contact details) they told us this was standard practise. They said they could only give us one night and then we would need to switch but they said "don't worry we won't charge you for the expensive room!" Um, damn right you won't!! Managed to convince them after half hour of arguing to honour their confirmation with us. Room was very clean and great location, pity the check in spoilt it.

We had 8 nights here in a poolside bungalow with the ocean only metres away. Stunning location at the quiet end of Chaweng but still within walking distance to the centre and only a few steps to catch the local TukTuk up and down the strip. Breakfast was overlooking the ocean and adequate and the staff were fantastic. Thanks to Carmelyn for all her help. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Samui.

Room Tip: Try it pick a poolside room or one of the few beach bungalows (more expensive) as these Re the most...

Newish hotel, right on the beach, which is flat with fine sand. Basic room but with all you need. Good breakfast. Noise from the road, particularly from pick-ups with huge speakers advertising Thai boxing.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the pool or one of the three facing the beach. Those close to the road can be v...

We stayed here for 4nights. It was pure luxury. Walking distance to the main strip. Your a few steps away from the beach. Breakfast area is ideally situated by the beach with a variety of food. Pool is lovely. Great stay!
