Pool area is lovely, and view is incredible, well worth the short climb up. Had a nice spacious villa, many lizards but this is inevitable in Thailand. The main street with bars and places to eat is only 5 minutes away by taxi. Would recommend

I should start by saying that my review may be slightly biased due to the fact that I found the hotels manager (pretty sure it was the manager) to be pretty rude and almost mean. However, looking back at our stay, this is definitely a place I would recommend to friends, but not without a few minor warnings.

- The pool is amazing (one of the best I have used in Asia), but is an oasis at the top of a very steep hill... At least you can jump in to cool off after your workout! This is also bittersweet because of the view from the pool area. You can literally see for miles. I will add some pictures I took while staying there to give an idea.

- The rooms are also on a hill (the whole hotel is), so be prepared for exercise during your stay. However, they are also away from the road, which means that it is a peaceful and somewhat safer place at night.

- The bungalows we stayed in share a balcony, but the rooms were great. They had wifi, were clean, nicely decorate and the bathroom was large and way above the standard in Thailand.

- The location is above average but not perfect. There are several restaurants/bars, massage parlors and shops nearby, but the main bar scene is about a 15-20 minute walk away.

That being said, these are all minor issues except for the rude receptionist. I am personally fine with walking places and the hills didn't bother me as much as they may bother other people. However, I wouldn't feel ok with the review without mentioning them. Overall, this is a great place to stay, especially if you appreciate a good pool over the beach.

This a a nice, quaint hotel just outside the main chaweng beach area, the location is pretty good as you have access to the popular bars and restaurants but are just outside the chaos zone if you want some R&R. The rooms are nicely laid out, bright and airy, although the furnishings are a little old and sometimes worse for wear.

There's a great pool, and the restaurant offers great views of the bay.

Strongly advise hiring a vehicle (scooter or motorcycle) as the rooms are all on an extremely steep hill slope and you can get quite tired walking up and down from the main street. Scooters are cheap and easily available right next to the hotel, so it's not a problem. As there is no public transport in Samui, you will probably need this anyway.

Also, the section of the beach nearest to the hotel is a little rocky, while you can swim if you like, it's best to be careful. The main chaweng beach is a little way ahead.

Room Tip: If you are up for a bit of a climb, the rooms nearest the hilltop have the best views. Otherwise pic...

Well, the hotel is very nice, beautiful and clean rooms for really affordable price . Its situated next to the road so its on tuk tuk line easy to go in the Chaweng walking street... but:
some rooms same as ours are located very high on the hill and the hotel just provides car to take you there until 16.30h after they dont have that car so you will need to climb there to go in your room.
Night time the road is quite dark so its not really comfy.
The pool is dark also at the nighttime what is very, very disappointing.
The pool restaurant is very expensive the staff there isnt the best and the food is not the best .

We booked the most expensive room at a hotel with jacuzzi bath.
When we got to the room the Jacuzzi bath did not worked! in the evening, after waiting all day technician and he did not come they agreed to move us to another room. But also there the bath not worked ..And Furthermore, Falls was also disrupted.
All our holiday in Koh Samui destroyed,
We have only two nights there and more than half of the time we burned because of bugs in the room and poor service.
The service was terrible, it took them hours to get things moving and even the senior management barely understood English.
Another important point is,the hotel is not at Chaweng beach, this deception!!!

First, we had a little disappointed as it's not near to the beach. But after we settle down, we begin to feel it's a very great place. After we checked in, staff drove us to our room as all the rooms on the hill. Each room has a small pool with good decoration and kids were very excited with it. Staff are very nice and very helpful. They showed us around and briefed us how to use the facilities. The restaurant and swimming pool located on the top of the hill and have a good view. Food are delicious and the price are very reasonable. They even helped to buy some sea food from market and cook for us.

We ordered a simple room with twin beds, and were upgraded to a 2 bed room villa (no extra charge). The rooms were clean, private and spacious.

The staff were very nice and helpful, and offered us a ride up hill to the villa, even though we checked in at 10 PM.
When we checked out, they offered us a ride to the boat pier for a reasonably small fee.

Breakfast (included in price) was served by the nice swimming pool, which has an awsome ocean view.

The hotel is located in Chaweng. A 5 minute ride from the bars and clubs area, and near the beach. But far enough from it, so you can relax qiutely in your room.

There is a scooter rental shop and garage near to hotel, they are nice and fair. Renting a bike is recomended for traveling around the island, and for climbing up hill to the room.

Bottom line, a highly recomended resort.
