    ExceptionalGreat hotel situated just 5 minutes walk from the centre. This is best as it’s really noisy until gone 2am in the centre so you still get the lively centre but when in bed quite and peaceful. Staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble with a good understanding of the English language. The rooms are traditional Thai style with comfy beds! WiFi available is super fast no matter where you are in the hotel and it’s got a big clean pool with plenty of sun beds. Tried the food which was delicious and very reasonably priced! Top place, me personally I will be back again. (Yorkshire)

    Really love this hotel..!!We really love this hotel as it is very near to Chaweng. The hotel provides free transport to Chaweng area (drop off point is at the Living Plaza) for every 30 mins. You just have to tell them the pick up time. There are shoplots just across the hotel with muslim food, bike rental, laundry, massage shop & Ice Bar. The hotel compound is well-looked after. If you are swimming at the hotel pool, it will provide the scenery overlooking the lake. Massage by the pool is also an option with cheap rate. Yes, the rooms are a bit of a climb, but it is good for exercise.In-house movie was also provided with movie listing if you cant understand the Thai TV channels. The only let down was the stiff bed, but i guess they can improve on that in the future. Overall, we will definately come back to this hotel during our next trip to Samui.

    Lovely hotel and lovely rooms”

    Beautiful pool and massage area

    We were 6 friends living in 5 rooms. One was a deluxe room (beautiful) and the others were "High room on the hill". Now all the rooms are nice. The high rooms, however, are really really high. You have to walk 100+ steps to get to your rooms. So every time you have to somewhere (Pool, restaurant, etc.) even within the hotel, you need to walk up and down these 100 odd steps and it's tiring if you're not used to. The receptionist Aun was extremely prompt. When we checked in, she had all reservation forms ready and we didn't need to even show her our vouchers. Once through the check in formalities, she gave us a brief that covered pool timings, room location, nearby attractions, bus shuttle service and even if there was a guest fee! No hotel we'd been to had this detailed level of information brief and we were impressed! She was polite and helpful. They offer a free shuttle to the Chaweng beach which is the night life and shopping hub. Not as exuberant as Pattaya's walking street though. The bar staff wasn't as staff and we had a little difficulty in placing our orders. However they have great music at the pool side and we spent hours there eating, drinking and swimming.

    Whenever I end up on Samui I head straight for the Nova Samui, It's fantastic and always at a very reasonable price, rooms are clean and set in a tropical garden, it's also close to Chaweng but just far enough away to chill out from the madness of the strip

    the place is very nice and only a few min from the beach. if u dont like to work you can take the hotel car . it drive to the center every half a hour. and if you have some kind of problem the staff will help you. the garden it so nice and beautiful, so if you like to relax it most be the place in samui.

    I got wrong room, and the room was completely different from pictures!”

    Be careful the pictures are not the same as the real rooms. They put wrong pictures on hills room type, We booked the hills room because in the pictures look very nice, but we got the room which completely different from the pictures. It was not a wood room like in the pictures, no balcony, no bathtub. We asked the staff, they told us to contact Agoda by ourself, not helping at all. Finally, they changed room for us but still not the one like in the picture we booked. Plus, there was so many mosquitoes in our room. The only good things about this resort were the area and the pool. The waterfall at the pool didn’t work. Walking distance to Chaweng. Breakfast was ok, Thai food choices was great. It was ok for us to climb up hundreds stairs. But very upset with the wrong room and staffs.

    The building is beautiful. We went in low season so it was quiet. The staff were not the friendliest I've met in Thailand. But they did they're job 😊 and the place was cheap! My recommendation would be to allow guests to refill their water bottles as you guys are using a lot of plastic!

    This is a beautiful property located within walking distance of Central Festival and all the amenities. My Jr Suite was spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and efficient. I enjoyed my stay. I arrived at 8 AM but my room was already prepared and waiting for me. The staff gave a clear briefing on the room, A/C controls, internet log-on and other facilities. Housekeeping were friendly and effective. The pool was clean, well maintained and had lots of loungers with cushions. The atmosphere was very relaxed. The other guests came from all over the world and everyone was quite pleasant. There is a shuttle that leaves hourly for the short hop into town or you can easily walk along the lakeshore walkway. On the hill behind the resort is a beautiful pagoda which affords a view of the surrounding countryside and the town of Chaweng. A few items to be aware of to manage your expectations: the satellite TV has only 2 English language stations. The neighbouring property often hosts very loud parties that last past midnight. The pool closes at 6 PM.

    Good location close to shopping centers and just the right distance from night life staff were friendly attentive and helpful. We were two families and had children ages 10 to 18 thy all had a good time only the Pool table was disappointing for the boys as it needed a lot of work. Pool closes at 1800 hrs. how ever I did not see any one stopping any one from using the pool after till late. Bathrooms were clean but need an update as the fittings are old and need to be changed. Overall the say was very good form amount we paid.

    Stayed here a few days longer as it was well located to good food areas (PENS for breakfast and across from here and up a little for cheap lunches etc) and only a short 10 mins to main area at night. Pool is excellent and plent of loungers. Room (superior double) was really big and kept clean enough. Definitely makes your Koh Samui visit better when you find a nice place like this. Highly recommend. Possibly wouldn't take breakfast option as I heard it was not that good or worth it. Eat out. Nice wee woman across the road for organising trips etc, better and cheaper than most.
