Chaweng Bay View Resort had some things going for it, but others not so much.
The good- Bungalow was really nice looking, with separate room with jacuzzi.
The resort was away from the hustle and bustle of Chaweng Beach and the main road. If repetitive, thumping bass is not your thing, this is a good place to be. When you do want to see the action, beware the cab and sorng-taa-ou drivers. Extortion doesn't begin to describe it.
The breakfast was excellent. Every day made to order. The view from the breakfast area/pool was amazing as well.
The bad- The jacuzzi in our bungalow did not actually work. We arrived and it was 1/2 full, but we could not get the water level to where it would be useful.
The hill! When you check in you are taken to your room in a pickup truck, but from there you are on your own. The staff get around on motorcycles while you hike up the steep incline to your room.
We had an incident where we returned to our room to find the front door locked, but the side door to the jacuzzi which allows you into the room was left wide open. Housekeeping probably just forgot, but leaving a room wide open was an issue.
We won't return to Samui, but if we did we would look elsewhere.More
