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

very spacious family bungalows
quirky decor
the family apartment we stayed in was lovey clean and spacious. The decor was very quirky and each room is individually decorated. The bathroom area was very nice with a bath tub included however do expect a few creepy crawlys coming in from the garden area. Staff were helpfull and the Akwa is is a great location to get aound Chewang without using a taxi.

Cute decor & restaurant
decor, colorful, cute resaurant/bar, fridge, a/c, security safe, DVD library
For the money it wasn't bad but the rooms are well worn. I really liked the artwork and colorful walls but there were broken tiles, scuff marks everywhere, minor stains on the sheets and what I'm assuming is black mold on the bedroom walls. The room (smallest available) was decent size but there's no where to put toiletries in the bathroom and the shower is between the toilet and sink w/o a curtain so it gets the floor wet which is pretty common in Asia. Wifi worked well. All in all I'd stay here again for the price but just note that it's not as nice as the pictures look. It's also on the far south end of the shopping/restaurants in Chewang Beach so although the location is decent you'll still probably take taxi's to get around sometimes.
