excellent rooms and location
fantastic amenities and meters from the beach
the rooms were very spacious and came with everything needed to relax including complimentary water each day, and complimentary dvd library to chill out to in your room. the decor was funky and upto date very modern and the staff were very very friendly. has it own restaurant however found the price abit steep considering we ate across the road for more than half the price however a good little guesthouse.

Cute hotel with a boutique atmosphere.
Modern painting.
The hotel was not anywhere near the beach although the description gave the impression that you walk out of your room straight into it. Further, it was made up of 2 buildings instead of the usual one only. We were travelling in a group of 8 and 5 stayed in the main building, where the reception was, and the other 3 stayed almost 250 meters away.

Cool rooms, and great service.
Large Bathroom with hot shower, good location, TV, air conditioning, helpful staff.
my grown daughter and i enjoyed our two nights at akwa guesthouse. it was just across the street from the beach and within walking distance to many restaurants. the staff were very helpful with making reservations for tours and transfers.

Good location but small room
Located on main strip in Chaweng
We were disappointed to find that our room was in a separate building from the reception / cafe area. There was nowhere to store luggage when we arrived early and having asked for a non-smoking room we were disappointed to find a cigarette burn in our bed and bedding that smelt of smoke. The door to the room wouldn't open fully due to the fridge being behind it so it was a bit of a squeeze to go in and out. The separate building also meant that when we went to the restaurant no-one seemed aware that we were staying there and we didn't receive the usual friendly welcome you get from reception staff. Cheap but disappointing!

Great hotel just next to the beach!
Trendy style guesthouse!
what i like about this guesthouse is that the room is nice. it is designed well and so cozy. the size of the room is just right. one of the rooms we had is even big enough to fit 4 people! also, the staffs are friendly.

Excellent living experience!
Lovely decoration with convienet location
The location, room facilities and staff are all very good. For the price like this, it's probably the best guesthouse in Chaweng. Everything is perfect excepted the small stairs,

Great location but small rooms!
away from the most busy parts of chaweng
Second time i've stayed at Akwa and it's totallyy differnt from the last time. In low season the rooms are cheaper and the place is generally more quiet. I arrived at 10.00am and had to wait two hours for my room to be ready- i was dead on my feet- and my room was next to their laundry so I was woken up at 8-8.30am every morning by the staff chatting outside my room and the sound of washing machines....

Great room for the price you pay
The room and price
A well equipped big room for what you pay. DVD player with DVDs outside your room a nice bonus. However, you may need to watch 1 because not close to the nightlife of chaweng beach, a taxi required to get to most decent pubs and restaurants. This does mean it's quieter than other places in chaweng and you can actually get to sleep which is nice. Stayed in central chaweng and too noisey to sleep
