This is a truly all-in-one vacation providing a beachfront hotel and a shopping mall with brand name shops. On the northern part of Chaweng Beach, this hotel has a good beach and is close to restaurants and nightlife. The shopping mall has Nautica, Nike, Pierre Cardin, and much more. The Iyara Beach offers a wide choice of accommodations. The cabanas that face the beach are quite popular and are surrounded by tropical gardens. All the rooms are well equipped and restful. The lovely open-air restaurant faces the beach and has themed night buffets including a great seafood BBQ. Don’t miss the classical Thai dance on Thursday night. And before you leave, treat yourself to a massage at the hotel's Chang Sabai Massage Center.Iyara Beach Hotel & Plaza is your one-stop destination for quality hotel accommodation.

Perfect location!! ”
I got this room for a higher price as compared to their normal rates due to the Chinese New Year but the location made up for it. It is right on the Chaweng Beach. The beach is literally half a minute away from the hotel lobby. Plenty of restaurants neeaby. The shopping centre is about 15 mins walk from the hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and pleasant. The hotel is quiet after 9:00 pm which makes it an ideal location to relax. The Outlet Mall is inside the hotel where you can get Adidas, Nike, Lacoste, Vans, Converse and many other brands at really discounted prices as compared to Bangkok. The Samui Airport is about 5 mins drive from the hotel. I had an excellent stay here and would surely stay here next time I visit Koh Samui.
I have stayed here several times. The standard rooms are out of date, and the beds are old. However the pool is great, and the staff at the pool side bar are fantastic, and that keeps me coming back. I'll probably upgrade to a better room next time.
Great location, friendly staff”
We spent 10 relaxing days at the Iyara resort. The staff welcomed us every morning with a friendly simile and a good breakfast. It was close to plenty of good eateries and places for a cool drink at the end of the day. We will happily return to the Iyara.
Good for short term stay”
Good hotel for the weekend, location is decent at the start of Chaweng night life, a little far to walk to the center of Chaweng beach. Parking space for 4 cars only, beach is nice but water isn't crystal clear for swimming, too much marine growth as it's a sheltered bay, however swimming pool was nice. Each time you shower it floods the bathroom floor and doesn't drain so the floor was wet all the time.
Good location ”
the hotel is situated at the town center, very convenient for shopping, dinning. hotel is right on the beach with nice open view. hotel staffs are quite helpful. good size of room, clean and close to the swimming pool. there are so many activity on the beach, jet ski, sailing boat, massage, restaurants, we just stay on beach and enjoy the whole day and evening.
Simply great value for money”
Iyara Beach Hotel & Plaza is located right in front of a beach, and also is about 10 mins walk away from the town centre. The hotel looks quite new, and room is spacious, comfy and well-maintained. The staff was friendly, and helped me book a tour to Ang Thong National Marine Park, too. Overall, quite satisfied and sure to come back and stay here if I have another chance to visit Koh Samui in the future. Great value for money.
I had read on here that the staff where unfriendly, this couldn't be further from the truth. The staff were GREAT, the 110 baht cocktails during happy hour were great, the pool area and the rooms also great!
A pleasant stay”
Overall the hotel is very clean and pleasant to be in. The rooms are very large, well decorated and very comfortable. Staff are always smilling and ready to assist. They are always interesting fresh local fruits in the room.
Hotel is located just the beginning of Chaweng one way road. You will be away from the busy area but reachable. It is just behind Plaza area. Has really nice swimming pool and staff were very friendly. They have low bed level, its okay for a night or 2 but not if you stay longer than that. Big room and very clean.
Iyara Hotel my stay 12-25th July”
I had a very nice stay at Iyara Beach hotel. The location was good, the staff very friendly and helpful and the rooms well clean. Very nice location also, nice white sand beach, good thai dancing buffet on Thursdays. I would highly recommend it for both couples (nice excursions to be done) and singles (lots of great nightlife around). I look forward to getting there soon.
The hotel is located at the quieter end of Chewang beach. It’s easy to walk to all the shopping centres, restaurants and bars etc. The beach is nice and clean. The hotel lacks the tropical feel of other hotels on Samui. We stayed in an individual bungalow and the room would best be described as “ok”. In my opinion, the hotel could be hugely improved with landscaping and updating the rooms. I would stay again based on the location, but better alternatives can be found.
Yes the planes are loud, bur youre near the airport so tjat is to be expected. Location is great, right in the middle of it all but far enough from the road you dont get noise pollution. Reception could have been better but that doesnt kill the experience. AC could have been better, old units, but worked well at night, had a hard time keeping up in the heat of the afternoon.
Excellent hotel & service”
We stayed here for 3 nights over Christmas. Comfortable beds, WiFi worked well in room, nice breakfast buffet with plenty of choice, excellent pool and on the beach. Friendly staff who helped with luggage and other requests. Good location for shops and the beach. I would stay here again and recommend this hotel.
Staff here were friendly and happy to please guests. Location is good as it lets you wander down cheweng beach road or the beach itself. cons are the breakfast is not buffet so pick plenty on order sheet or go elsewhere and the pool closes at 7pm which sucks as you would probably like the drinks at poolside in the evenings.
Great value hotel”
Great location, right on the beach, with a swimming pool. Clean and good size rooms. We were 3 adults in the room and they added an extra bed for us and we still had enough room. We had outside of the room a loud buzzing from the electricity cables, however, I think it was only in our room since it was really close to it. The bathroom is really great - good size, hot water, good water pressure - only thing is that the bath built in a way that splash water on the floor, so be ready to use towels to soak the water. Overall - a great stay and will stay here again.
stay was great, hotel foods a little expensive but the food is good. Theres plenty of restaurants up the road for about the half the cost. Staff were amazing and super super helpful. highly recommend this hotel!
Best location on Chaweng street and the beach”
Honestly the photos did not do this hotel justice. We stayed in the deluxe room on the ground floor and were surprised by how beautiful the bathrooms were (including bathtub). Our room faced the pool and the beach, so 2 steps out you can jump in the pool, and 5 steps out you can jump in the sea. We didn't take the hotel breakfast, opting instead to try places nearby like the marine bar on the beach. This hotel is set back a bit away from the main Chaweng street which makes all the difference in terms of noise and comfort. The convenience of having a 7/11 and money exchange just 2 minutes away was incredible. After 10.30pm though most things in the area are closed so you have to walk about 15mins south into deep Chaweng near all the bars to find some food later at night. Staff were extremely helpful. Would definitely recommend it and come back.
We really enjoyed our stay at the resort. Staff wer very helpful. Room was fab and was spotless clean. Pool was lovely and relaxing. I would recommend the food it, we had a romantic dinner on the beach. Would defiantly stay again !! :)
Not for me.”
This hotel lacks the colour and warmth Thailand is famous for. Our room was terrible. The furniture was very old, the aircon ancient and the room had not been painted in a long time. The lack of soft furnishings made it feel like a prison cell and the bathroom ceiling was literally growing fungus... BUT there were much nicer rooms, we'd get envious glimpses of them when we walked past open doorways. Don't accept keys to room 128! We had breakfast on the first morning and it had very limited choice, they didn't cover the fruit either which was constantly covered in flies. We gave them another chance at lunch...I ordered pizza and chips. The chips tasted like the oil hadn't been changed in weeks and the bottom of the pizza was black. But it wasn't until half way through that I noticed a fly underneath the pizza! This put me off for the rest of the stay and we didn't eat there again. This hotel has so much potential - great location and bones; but has been very poorly managed/invested in. This is my 4th time in Samui and 1st time I've been disappointed in the accomodation. Luckily we are now at my fave 3 star resort in Lamai which has saved our holiday!
stays was good next to shopping branded outlets. Walking distance to the shops and markets. Central mall is 15min walk. Can't swim the beach full of algae. Stayed 3nights had breakfast once and it's not tasty and less choice. On the last day there is no electric on the chaweng area the electric supply had maintainence so it's hot in the room. 7e is Js 1min away. If the hotel Gv 2 room keys would be better Coz it's difficult to go out to get stuff done while the other half is sleeping or taking shower.
