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.

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.
Great location and service”
Iyara Beach Hotel is very well located on the main beach, Chaweng Beach. It is down the quieter end which we enjoyed as the more populated end near the backpackers was quite busy. The hotel is fronted by a plaza with retail shops and backs onto the beach. They have a pool, wifi (unfortunately for a fee) a restaurant and a massage parlour which is very well priced and professional. Wifi was expensive and we later found out you can buy unlimited access through a phone company for about B700 for a whole month! The cheaper "Superior" rooms are not as nicely finished and we found that when showering the water would flow over the edge onto the bathroom floor. If you can afford it the more expensive rooms are nicer. Overall the appearance of the hotel was of a good standard and quite comfortable. Unfortunately the Spa jets in the spa attached to the pool did not seem to work when we were there in February. Staff were pleasant and helpful and had good English. Overall I would stay here again.
Awesome pool, lovely hotel & friendly staff”
iyara is located directly on chaweng beach. the beautiful pool has a magnificent view of the beach and bay beyond. there is a terrific and reasonably priced restaurant also with views across the beach & bay. the restaurant staff were very helpful in accommodating my children's food allergy needs. probably the only detracting point was that many guests were smoking in the restaurant. we suggested to the hotel manager on check out that stopping patrons from smoking in eating areas would be very well received. rooms nice, clean, well presented. we were upgraded to 2 cottages at no extra charge. fabulous holiday!
Highly Recommed...! ”
I wish I could have stayed here for longer. We were only in Koh Samui for 3 nights and we chose the best hotel in town. This hotel is brilliantly located at the north end of Chaweng so 5 minutes walk to all the bars and restaurants but just out of the main area so dead quiet at night. There are some nice bars, restaurants if you walk up the beach to the left, even the beach water gets nice clean to the left.. Nice rooms, we had a superior room which had enormous bed, a massive bath tub and brilliant hot powerful shower. Chaweng is great, lots of bars and restaurants.
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.
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.
Be in the pool whilst looking out to sea”
Our stay at Lyara was good. We were only in Koh Samui for a short time and Lyara fulfilled everything we needed (excluding Wifi in the rooms). The location is great, the attached restaurant (Ivory) was good, the pool was as good as can be expected with the space that Koh Samui resorts have and one of the better ones, the aircon, size of the rooms, and cleaning service was great. Complimentary 2 bottles of water a day was great also. The staff were friendly on check in and check out. I thought the beach area out the front of the resort was one of the better areas available along the beach front. I would recommend this place and would probably stay here again.
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.
Does what it says ”
The Iyara is a very nice, clean, modern hotel in a nice part of Chaweng Beach. It is quiet enough, yet easy walking distance to the busy and noisy part of town. The breakfast is lovely and is served at the beach side restaurant. The spa there is also very good and not overpriced like many other hotels.
Nice hotel with great facilities”
nice hotel located in the beginning of chaweng beach. the hotel rooms and facilities in general were very good standard (not 5 star but very nice) the pool area was nice and the beach was also very good. one of the best beaches on samui (far better than bang rak and bo phut). chaweng has a long busy street, which is quite tacky and could remind you of a typical too touristic area around europe (thais are however a much friendlier people), so spend your time on the beach or other places on the island. the hotel was a great base for us and the hotel staff were very helpful. definitely recommendable for the price.
Now guys if you happen to be in Koh Samui I can not recommend this hotel highly enough, the pictures on here just don't do it justice. The staff are so helpful and are always smiling. Nice clean rooms,pool is perfect great and its literally a 10 second walk to the beach. Hotel is based on a main road so its very close to everything you need. 10/10
Nice Clean Hotel and service with a smile”
the iyara beach hotel & plaza was very nice! clean and well looked after. room was well equipped with all you need and with lots of room! only down side i could say is that the service was very laxed but expect that anywhere. we really did enjoy ourselves here and will go back!
Lovely hotel right on the beach”
the hotel rooms are very spacious and appealing. the hotel is right on the beach in the middle of koh samui's largest "town" - chaweng. the hotel is located in an easy walking distance from restaurent, bars & shops. the staff was helpful.
Fantastic Hotel! Recommend and would stay again!”
This hotel is in a great position very close to the action but far enough away to be not loud (5 mins walk to main area). The pool is good and its right on the beach and has lots of sun chairs and the towels are really nice. The staff are all really good and very friendly with good English! The restaurant is good and the food and drink is reasonably priced! Nice little shopping plaza in front of hotel and keeps it quite! Great place to stay and would come again!
Koh Samui - chewing beach BEST experience”
Highly recommend staying at this hotel when staying in koh samui. Chaweng beach is the most lively beach / location on the island
We went here for our honeymoon and told the hotel in advance. When we arrived they had sprinkled rose petals on the bed in the shape of a heart and made sure we had the best room in the place. The bed was huge and very comfortable. Staff were very helpful and the seafood on site was good value. Buffet breakfast was okay too. It was only a short walk to the main strip of Samui. It was not on the main beach area but still ok for a swim and the pool had views of the beach anyway.
Nice experience in Iyara”
Iyara Beach Hotel & Plaza Samui made our travel a fantastic experience. seaview, spacious hotel room, good service,prime location are most impressing!
Nice room, good location, overpriced hotel”
the hotel is quite nice with a very large swimming pool. the staff is pleasant and upgraded us to a deluxe room without having to pay more. chaweng beach is one of the most lively and beautiful beach of samui. the hotel has a direct access to the beach. the room was spacious and confortable but the shutters were not closing properly, the bathroom was filthy and we could hear the sound of air conditionners very loud that were standing just in front of our window at the opposite side of the street. there was a nice terrace but it was full of bugs trying very hard to get inside of the room so we could not really enjoy it. the breakfast is awfully expensive if not taken included in the booking. wifi connection ridiculously expensive which should not be the case in a standing hotel. generally speaking it is a nice place but overpriced in my opinion.
Very nice experience”
This hotel is located in the Chaweng beach which is very convenient to shopping and nice eating places. The room is clean and the bed is very comfortable. The breakfast is opened til 10.00 am., which is normally extended to 10.15 am. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel provides the room for take a bath even we already checked out.
We stayed as a couple quite a while ago now. But this hotel was faultless. The rooms were amazing with comfortable beds and modern facilities. The location is great. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle to be quiet and away from the crowds on the beach but close enough to walk if looking for restaurants and the nightlife in Samui. This hotel was perfect for what we were after.
