          Palace-like Resort with Friendly Staff”

          The building of the resort made me feels like I am in a palace. Our family room was so spacious & luxurious. The staff were just great! The breakfast spread was very good and not salty as compared to other resorts which was ideal as my hubby has hypertension. The free flow coffee maker was another plus point. The beach was very interesting as certain part was with shallow water while other part was deeper. Crystal clear water and finer sand could be found further out about 50m for a greater swim. We were fascinated to find corals, black sea cucumber & lots of small fishes. There are a few local restaurants nearby to get cheap food. We enjoyed our meals at The Dusk Restaurant just next to Novotel. We hope to be back again!!

          Spacious hotel room with great food”

          The room is big and spacious, clean. The swimming pool is nice with immediate link to the beach and pool restaurant. Breakfast was overall satisfy.

          Check-in process taking a little bit longer time, but the hotel staffs are friendly. The hotel is about 5 to 10 minutes drive to the Chaweng shopping area, taxi is around 200baht per person from the hotel to the shopping area. You can drive yourself and the shopping mall does provide parking lot for free. Overall I am satisfied with the hotel, the only disadvantages is that the hotel do not provide free wifi.

          Awesome Room - but there's a catch”

          room, pool, location

          This hotel is located either side of the main road, so half is beach side, the other half is hillside. The hillside can be a bit of a pain as it's up the hill and you have to cross the road each time you want to go to the beach, but we got upgraded to a "seaview" room which was huge and well appointed so made it worth it. The bathroom was massive and it was nice coming back to that each day, however most rooms are not this big. The location is just north of the central shopping area in Chaweng, a bit of a walk when it's really hot. we hired a scooter for $7/day so this wasn't an issue and being a bit further away from the hustle and bustle ended up being better for us. Chaweng is really starting to get over developed so being right in the middle of town is no longer a good thing. Kandaburi is just far enough away to still be convenient, but far enough away to be peaceful.

          the hotel was great. very relaxing. the room as a good size and the bathroom was massive with a double sink and a very nice bath. the bathroom is open and only has curtains and no doors. the hotel is non smoking. the location isn't too bad even thought there isn't much within walking distance but everything is quite close in a tuk tuk. the weekend market is only 10 mins ride in a tuk tuk. the food at the hotel as great and so was the staff.

          Nice rooms, comfy bed

          the hotel is a short distance away from the busy area of chaweng beach where all the action is. if you don't want to be right in the action all the time then this hotel is in a great location. we rented a scooter from a place right next to the hotel. the buffet breakfast was awesome. the room was actually a lot bigger than i expected and the bed was very comfortable. staff were always happy to help you and greeted you with a smile. the deluxe hillside rooms are across the street, so a 30 second walk to the beach. not really a big deal. wifi is very expensive at this hotel. if you want internet in your room be prepared to pay a lot.

          for honey moon and relaxation, this hotel is highly recommended. But for family who is always looking for activities, this hotel is abit too far from the actions and shopping, better to choose a hotel in Chaweng beach for maximum convenience. Koh Samui is extremely easy to get around and it is cheaper if you rent a car and do your own sight seeing.

          Nice bathrooms”

          Love the two pools in the resort.
          Had to bring the pool towels (placed in your room) to the pools. Also, it was a hassle during check out from the regular rooms (mountain view room). I had to drag my suitcase from my room, and cross a road just to get to the lobby of the resort. Internet access (wireless) is available for a fee at this resort.

          The rooms were very nice. And the bathrooms had a full bathtub as well as a shower area and was extremely luxurious. The buffet breakfast that was offered on the "mountain view room" wing had a lot of variety and was sumptous. The pool nearest to the beach was very popular in the resort, and all the deck chairs were taken very quickly. The resort was a little ways from the main drag. You can walk (along the beach) to get to the main drag in the evening. But be prepared to walk at least 20 - 35 minutes each way if you're planning to trek into town for dinner, bars, etc. The resort also provides a free shuttle to the main drag, but only limited times (something like 11am, 3pm, and 9pm). You can also pay for the shuttle if you want a ride at other times. The airport is less than 15 minutes away from the resort.

          Very beautiful environment. Two nice and large pools. Very large room and bathroom even for the basic deluxe hillside. Very kind people at the reception, smiley and very helpful. Good restaurants.
          Pub should be changed in an English style pub in order to attract more customers. It didn't bother me much as the center of Chaweng with its exciting nightlife is not far away.

          I really enjoy my time at Kandaburi. This hotel is very beautiful, the service is top, it is clean, the rooms are very large and comfortable, well I have to say it is a very good hotel I would highly recommend to anybody and will definitely go back!!

          Great Service ”

          Great Service with lovely hotel, pool and private beach.
          Hard to think of but would like to mention the bathroom for Premire Room. It was right at the entrance. So basically, when you open the door, you will see lovely big bathroom then next door is your bedroom. Make sure you lock it every time you get in otherwise their staff might come in while you are doing your business. They sometimes want set your bed ready for your sleep.

          The service is very nice, I would give it 10/10. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We booked Deluxe and got upgrade to Premier Room. The room was very big with DVD player. You can get movie from the market and watch it in your room. It is located in the North of Chaweng, can walk to Central for 5 mins. Hotel has free shuttle bus 3 times a day, only from Hotel to Central. Or you can walk along the beach, it will take about the same. There are many beach restaurants with fire show. The drinks were a little expensive but try to go there on Happy Hour, which is normally last until 9 PM. You can get good deal for THB 100 cocktail or THB 50 local beer. Hotel also provides a very good break as well. This is suitable for all travelers.

          Bit of a walk up the hill from the beach to half of the resort and have to cross a main road.

          The staff were incredibly friendly and accomodating, 24 hour security and there are two big pools due to the resort being situated 2 sides of the main chaweng beach road. Nice little area of the beach and the staff at the pool bar were very friendly and entertaining. Can't comment on the restaurants as we didn't eat there but there are so many places in Chaweng that would no doubt be a lot cheaper and better value for money. Also ample car parking which was useful as we had hired a pickup truck.

          Novotel samui is definitely a wonderful.property but it has pros and cons. Pros- wonderful staff, especially Ms.Ann was really helpful. All the requirements were met quickly. The pool was amazing where we stayed. Breakfast was good The rooms were spacious with balcony,huge washrooms. Cons-very less vegetarian food options Lots of mosquitoes,insects. Beach area was dirty. No door in washroom. And i really would like to ask, why have painted an elephant with zebra stripes? Lol. Its really funny. My trip was wonderful, all thanks to the nice and coirteous staff.

The next day one the room’s bathroom was leaking and was once again asked to move rooms. Breakfast is very bad, everyday they serve the same thing. Its fine if they serve the same thing and it takes good but none of the food taste good at all.

Breakfast was good with lots of choice. The pool on the hill side was quiet and refreshing. It was only a short walk to the beach side where the pool, restaurant and bar area are very good. A few steps to the beach with stunning views of the beach front. Would definitely stay again

          A good hotel, very clean and fresh, private beach right next to the pool. Rooms were very clean and I was surprised with a up grade to the honeymoon suite as my booked room was not available. This was a great gesture on Managements part.

          It should be better”

          It should be better since we chosen the hotel in a standard of Accor group but i don't know in which system they use for screening their customers. We are 2 ladies and they have add us to the room which is very far away to the back side of the hotel. And since the building have many level with at least 4 elevator with different kind of floor. First arrived they took us to the room by the 3rd elevator which we have to go up to 4 floor then take Tehran half floor by stair. But when we have to come back to the room by ourself we took the 1st elevator and the top floor we can press is 4 floor but we came off seem to be in a different floor of our room then we walk up by stair for 2 more floor. Basically it is too complicate and to far for the woman walking back to the room. Especially if it at the night. Then at the beach side there is not enough towel and no refill. We have been waiting until we finished and i end up by sharing the towel with my friend. The staff at the check in didn't inform us for any of hotel information, we have to ask from one of the expat staff for the breakfast place and he was informed us we can have breakfast at both side. But when we arrive on the beach side for breakfast the other expat staff told us this side is reserve for the customers that stay on this side. This is quite impolite for my opinion to reply to your customer in this kind of way. So we have told her that one of the staff told us to come here or should we walk back, and at the end she allow us to have the breakfast there. There is many way to handle this situation, you should check with your front desk first if they have inform to all the customers or not. However the other day we stay on the other side but overall the breakfast here is not a Novotel standard at all. Asian side boil rice not hot not even warm. Breakfast station dirty, not clean, not fill up the food. even fried is very bad, i wish i can show you how is look. Fried rice same color as stream rice. 2 kind of fri
