        Ever wondered why some places are so special? We got to know the answer following our stay at Pandora Lifestyle Hotel. It's not only everything wonderful you would write about a resort but, the special, kind and heartfelt treatment you would get from Management and Staff as well. We felt nothing but complete satisfaction during our stay. We wouldn't think of any other place to stay in our next trip to Koh Samui. Thank you Hillari and Thank you Marriane.

        Colourful boutique hotel with great computers!”

        Style, fast internet access, friendly staff

        This hotel has taken simple rooms, given them a little colour-twist, added some great computers and come up with a winning formula that balances comfort with relative value. A classic ‘boutique’ hotel with just a small number of rooms and a courtyard pool and bar, Pandora is at the quiet northern end of Chaweng beach road. Walk across the road and through the pool area of the neighbouring hotel and you are on the busy stretch of beach that will take you fifteen minutes to walk along if you want to go down into the main shopping district. However the beach restaurants scattered around near Pandora are perfectly good, and some looked exceptional – although were only there for two nights so did not get the chance to eat around. If you are going to stay around the hotel then the pool is comfortable for a dip to cool off, but it’s not really a swimming option as it’s to small for that. But there is a ‘swim-up’ bar if you do want to have a cold drink at the same time as getting out of the sun. Our room had a hammock and table outside – but I think we were lucky on that count as the others didn’t seem to have any private outside space. The computer in the room had a huge screen and was loaded with films (if you have the time to watch any) and the internet access was blazing fast. The colour-changing lightbulbs and under-bed mood lighting was a neat touch – but don’t try and go to sleep with them set to strobe because it’s like trying to snooze in a disco!

        Great location, extremely helpful and friendly staff, funky design, clean rooms, all amenites possible

        I honestly could not fault Pandora in any way. I was travelling with a friend and only staying for 3 days, however in this short period of time the owner Tony made himself known to us, giving us tips on where to go and telling us a little about what was going on in town at the time. The staff are friendly and helpful and more than willing to go the extra mile to ensure your needs are met. We stayed in a bungalow and were amazed that the room really does look just like the pictures! This hotel features a really quirky, funky design without compromising on any modern features. The rooms were clean and equipped with anything we could have possibly needed. Overall, Pandora has a really lovely vibe; you feel as though you're staying with friends. Would definitely recommend Pandora and can't wait to stay there again!

        My stay at the Pandora was only for 1 night but it was lovely. It is a small hotel but really cute and trendy. It has funky colours and lights but it actually works and isn't to over the top. The breakfast is amazing and the staff really friendly. The pool is really small but your just across the street from Chaweng Beach and 7-eleven is next store. Lots of movies in the rooms and good internet. A cute hotel for an affordable price.

        Hidden gem”

        If your looking for a 5 star hotel then this isn’t it. But if your looking for affordable,comfortable accommodation only 200m from the beach then this is the place for you. Stayed here for 7 nights in a bungalow and couldn’t fault Pandora all, you get a lot of bang for your buck. nice quaint comfortable rooms a decent breakfast down to the strong hot showers this place is great. But most of all are the staff and management they make you feel at home,nothing is a problem for them. The hotel is close to money changers ,7 eleven,massage and bakery. Then it’s a short stroll across the road to one of the best beaches on the island. Thanks pandora I will be back

        Fantastic Value for money”

        It was my first stay here in Samui and Pandora. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating. The hotel itself looks and feels very quirky and different but I actually enjoyed its differences to the norm. The front desk staff were very helpful in organising different things and knowledgeable as well. The only minor issue I had was the Wifi was poor in my room. I had to use it from the balcony for any decent reception.

        Fabulous, stylish and friendly place”

        The best things about Pandora are the gorgeous funky rooms, the superb cleanliness and the friendly staff. The idea of a PC with pre loaded films in your room is genius!

        We loved our three nights at Pandora. I liked the location just down the beach from the main hub of Cheweng so a nice stroll in evenings or easy taxi ride ( they pass by all time). It is quiet and the pool is small so if you are looking for a big resort then go to one of the many in town. The place is really well looked after and the rooms are very clean ( when I was there it was mattress cleaning day and they were very thorough!)The only drawback is that it is across the road from the beach so no sea views but probably makes it a bit cheaper and it is literally a 2 minute walk. So go to Pandora if you like something quirky and friendly!

        Helpful staff, good location

        situated on the main road just off the beachfront at the northern end of chewang beach the pandora is little gem of hotel. it's also close to samui airport. the suite we stayed in was room enough to sleep 3 friends (king size bed, spare bed and a rather comfy couch) with good air conditioning. the bathroom was enormous and the hotel's decor is an attraction in itself. the laundry service was prompt (same day) and the staff at reception were very helpful. had a problem with the pc in the room but a word to reception and it was promptly replaced. you can drink at the bar and have a yarn with nick the bartender, the security guy, and other guests before heading out to explore the town. if you want the pampered tourist treatment, look for a hotel on the beachfront. if you want a hotel located close enough so you can check those amenities if you want and yet be removed enough to force you to explore on your own then you can't go wrong staying here.

        Friendly staff, clean, quiet, close to everything you need but not right in the hustle and bustle of Chaweng

        Wanted to book a cheapish hotel for a couple of days in Chaweng to go diving. Chose this based on the price. It was clean and quiet and just what we needed. The manager was also very friendly and helpful with lots of tips on what to do and where to go for the rest of our Koh Samui hotel. He even organised an early takeaway breakfast for us to take diving, as breakfast didn't begin until after our pick up time!

        Quaint little hotel with friendly service”

        I like that the hotel is located a little bit back out of all the craziness of Chaweng Beach. Whilst the hotel is not on the beach itself, it is directly across the road from a walkway down to it. I loved the decor of the rooms too.

        the staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. i didn't get a chance to sample the breakfast menu as breakfast commences from 8am (not a complaint, it's only a small hotel, so this is to be expected), so being out and about before this time meant i had to have breakfast elsewhere. the room was clean, comfortable and in good condition. even though it is a small hotel and the bar and pool were not far from my door, plants growing outside protected my privacy. housekeeping was good too. i liked the location of the hotel. it is a few minutes walk up the road from all the action of chaweng which is what i wanted. perfect for a foray in and then retreat when i wanted. there are also heaps of taxi scooters around if you don't feel like the stroll. pharmacies and convenience stores, tour desk, restaurants are all handy too.

        Fantastic Stay at The Pandora”

        Beautiful Hotel, wonderful rooms and great breakfast.

        What a great hotel, run by Yanick who had fantastic english which made everything so much smoother. Ready to help at any opportunity especially to help you find the best price for something. A 15 minute walk into the main town but quite pleasant especially when taking the route along the beach and personally we were quite pleased to be outside the main area of Chaweng Beach. You can easily get a taxi back for 50 baht per person if you prefer. Breakfast was great, a lot on offer and all good quality and well made. Overall one of the best hotels we have stayed in and would happily recommend to a friend.
