Dara Samui Beach Resort
Ranked #21 of 104 Hotels in Chaweng
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Nice hotel located in the heart of chaweng. Literally 5 mins walk to bars and shops! Rooms are spacious and clean, staff are friendly, hotel also has a beachfront. There's both Thai and international cuisine available - although those looking for a real Thai taste will need to step out of the hotel. Overall a very pleasant stay and would definitely come back to Dara Samui

It's in the heart of the party zone in Samui, walking distance to the famous spots.

Rooms were comfortable and spacious, but in my opinion some of the things in the room need to be replaced or upgraded.

Overall it's been a good stay.

Right smack at the happening scene of Chaweng minus the noises. Unfortunately the Spa is non existence amidst the name. Pool is pretty small but it's forgiven given the vicinity to the beach. All the deck chairs at the beach will be cleared in the evening and transformed into a cool beach dining area. This hotel is filled with stairs and therefore not definitely not wheel chair friendly.

Very nice hotel with big comfortable rooms with tv, shower, bathtub, minibar and a nice bed.
The staff was very kind and serviceminded.
Breakfast was delicious with lots of choices.

We rent motorcycle one day and the staff in the reception helpt us and the bike was outside the hotell within 5 miutes.
We have nothing to complain about, we had a wonderfull holiday at Ko Samui.

I really enjoy my staying here in Dara Samui.
The staff is very kind and friendly, lots of true smiles and lovely hospitality.

I enjoy the quiet location of the hotel in the center, the room is big and very comfortable.
I really enjoy the small details like the towels folded in an elephant-shape,
the fact that I am using a card instead of a solid key to open the door,
the robes in the bathroom,
the shower creams,
lots of power outlets,
big mirrors,
lots of pillows,
the decoration of the room and the little coconut monkey statue.

Also, the atmosphere and the decoration of the hotel are lovely and changes during the day (at least on the beach).

I less like the little ants that I find sometimes in my room,
the view from the room's balcony is not inviting,
and there are a lots of stairs in the hotel.


Thank you Dara Samui!
