"Some Rooms need Attention"
This was our second time to this resort and the location and services did not disappoint us at all, they are superb. The breakfasts are amazing, staff very friendly and helpful and the pools with the beach so close is brilliant. However, the rooms in the two storey blocks are another matter. We had the upstairs rooms of 234 and 235, and they are shocking. […] Badly need some attention to the bathrooms and anyone older would have a huge issue getting into the shower just with the huge step over, especially if the bath is wet and slippery. We did ask several times to be moved but the resort was full and they only offered us rooms without the connecting doors we required. I know the separate bungalows are refurbished and very nice, but be very careful of the rooms you pick, they do need refurbishment and to me a good clean. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Not meet the standards of the high price, horrible service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A great hotel,with beautifully maintained gardens. The rooms were very spacious & were very well maintained.The 2 pools provided completely different outlooks,1 overlooking the ocean ,the other in the gardens with a swim up bar.It is an extremely family friendly hotel,with very friendly & efficient staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"nice place for families with kids"
Great Hotel in a nice place with a very good restaurants friendly staff a great place for families, couplesGenuine Expedia guest review
"loved position to clubs pubs and shopping"
Even though the hotel had a double booking we were placed in another hotel close by, we were able to move to our original room the next day. Staff were more than helpful, food was great and the room was fantastic. Position of the hotel was excellent far enough away from the party hotels to sleep at night but not to far if you wanted to party.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location, busy yet quiet too"
We stayed at this hotel many times when we visit Koh Samui. Tried staying in Amari and Centara and one boutique hotel. After comparing, still prefer Regent at Chaweng. We like the convenience of its central location whereby restaurants and other amenities are nearby Eg: Italian Prego or good Thai lunches at Khao Sun. A good Thai massage place: Dusita, […] near Regent has properly trained and polite masseurs. Bohput is also near enough by taxi to enjoy a good breezy seaside dinner. The small bazaar on Friday at Bohput Fisherman Village is also fun. If you love yoga, must visit vikasa Yoga. Very professional instructors and the class is conducted in a open air room facing the sea. Very calming! For a short 3 day 2 night break at Samui, should stay at Regent Chaweng. Much more central than Amari at one end of Chaweng and Centara on the other end. My family loves the Spa Villas which are nestled in lush landscape. Rooms at Amari & Centara are housed in buildings. Breakfast is decent and the choice is reasonable. It is quiet and the beach is so nearby. Plenty of great Thai food, western food or high end dining for special celebrations, good Thai massage and relaxing walks as well as dinners on the beach. Samui airport is only 10 minutes from Chaweng. Also like Samui cos we found a very reliable and polite taxi driver, Mr Joy who takes us around. Great place for short holidays.

"AMAZING HOLIDAY - AMAZING LOCATION!"
Amazing hotel, location, staff, rooms (superior bungalows) central to the main Chaweng area. (rent a bike and visit the rest of the island) but this hotel is in the centre of everything!The ONLY BAD thing is that they offer you a pre paid card to use at the hotel.They say you get 1000 bahts free which is great but they don't let you use this card for […] happy hour, pool bars and lots more. you end up loosing money!

"Best hotel on chawge beach"
Second time we stayed at the hotel, we had such a good time On our 1st visit last may we came again but this time stayed for two weeks! Best hotel by far on chawnge beach, the beach and pool area is well looked after by all the staff, beach very clean. Great location at the front right in the middle of the busy bars and restrants. Would come back again […] next year! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best holiday at Chewang Regent, Ko Samui"
My husband, myself and granddaughter have just returned from 10 days staying at Chewang Regent, Ko Samui. Our son had chosen Ko Samui for his wedding. From the moment we arrived which was not until late at night, the service we received was second to none. Cool drinks and cold towels awaited us in Reception whilst waiting for our passport checks and […] booking details to be confirmed. There was a bit of a problem getting our key to operate the electricity, but the staff persevered until it was fixed and we never had any trouble with it again. The Resort was well laid out and in the perfect central location. The busy shopping and cafe hub straight out the front door and the beach and its busy social atmosphere at the rear. There were two dining areas and most evenings you could have dinner on the beach. Tables and chairs were set up on the beach all day for dining or drinks. For the younger generation , the Ark Bar was a five minute walk down the beach. Contrary to what we had thought, the noise from both the street or music on the beach did not carry into the Resort. Once inside, it was quiet and peaceful. The gardens were beautiful and well maintained and there appeared to be continual maintenance on the rest of the Resort. Drinks and food were probably a bit more expensive but we were happy to pay the extra as the food was wonderful. We would definitely stay there again if returning to Ko Samui and would highly recommend it to friends, family or anyone going there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Loved everything about the hotel. Beautiful property, well maintained , good and helpful staff and great breakfast inspite of being vegetarians. On arriving they wanted to upgrade us to another villa but we stayed at the spa villa we had booked. The room was lovely and spacious so was the bathroom . The front desk was also helpful . In the evenings […] there used to be a lady from Mexico who was at the restaurant and saw to it we got good vegetarian options. The location of the property is fantastic at Chewang beach .

"As good as life gets"
This was our third stay at the Regent and we were very happy with every thing at the hotel ,have no complaints at all , just loved it all, and having 12 noon check out they gave us another room till 15.00 no charge as it was our 3 rd stay with themGenuine Expedia guest review
"Chaweng Regent almost lives up to the Regent claim"
The staff attended our every need, helping us with directions, and other information. We used the beach pool, for me an older person needing rails. The garden pool was made more difficult by rather slippery steps and no support rails or handles. We found the breakfast menu more than adequate. Four of us had a well run cooking class with Tik, full […] of information about the menu, Thai culture in cooking, eating and presentation. We were unable to eat it all they covered it and took it to our rooms for us to eat later. However what clouded my feelings was that with daughter probably the worst traveller ever, I had written to ask for an early check in. Having travelled all night from Australia, we came at 10am, informed that the room wasn’t ready, to wait by the pool. The change facilities which are tiny toilets with no hanging spots, wettish floors and stained but clean seat tops. Talking to several other parties, it appears no one is allowed into their rooms early. At 1.40pm my daughter asked for our room - again refusal. At exactly 2pm I approached the desk was taken to the room which appeared to have been ready for some time. It would appear it is a hotel policy not to ever offer an early arrival room entry, although many other places around the world where I have stayed extend this courtesy. So Chaweng Regent, the last has coloured the rating from us, however we must admit after the first couple of days we recovered and you redeemed yourselves in all other ways.

"Please give us the room we booked"
Although we booked in advance for a twin bed, we received a double bed on arrival and were told that they were very busy. We were eventually given a twin bed the following day but had to sleep on the couch the first day, and had to go through the hassles of unpacking and packing again for room transfer. We have heard from others that this is normal […] practice for them to overbook. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Will return - no doubt!"
Great location, slightly away from the "hussle and bussle" of Koh Samui. The water was significantly calmer at this end of the beach, too. Restaurant is highly recommended, particularly BBQ Seafood night on the beach!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Chaweng Regent Update -"
They are not keeping the maintenance up both inside the rooms and structural grounds, gardens are beautiful and well kept. Tis a shame because it used to be well looked after but then it was newer. Our first stay there was in 2005, second 2007, deteriorated since then.Staff are beautiful and cannot do enough for you Too expensive to eat in their restaurant […] and drink at their Bar - compared to what is available elsewhere. Bed was like a slab of concrete to sleep on!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Genuine, friendly staff throughout the entire hotel. Great facilities throughout the hotel, including the gym, both restaurants, spa facilitites, both pools and the private beach at the back of the hotel. The buffet breakfast was also great, lots of options and as it came included with our deluxe package, together with the room, was good value for money. […] The resort itself was in a great location, with the Main Street providing lots of opportunities for shopping and close proximity to supermarkets etc. we couldn't hear any noise from the street from inside the hotel too which gave it a very relaxed feeling. The hotel's tourist office also was great for booking tours. I am 22 and I stayed with my 28yr old sister and we would definetly recommend Koh Samui and this resort to stay in.

"Fantastic Resort - Highly recommend"
By far one of the best resorts we have been to. It was our 2nd stay here. The location is perfect - directly on Chaweng Beach and central to main street with markets/restaurants etc.This is a clean resort with a high standard of maintenance and presentation. The friendliness of all staff is exceptional and I can see why it is such a popular resort. […] Family friendly as well as being ideal for couples. Our first stay last year was in a Deluxe room then this 2nd stay was in a Premier room and my suggestion is to pay that small extra amount for the Premier Rooms as the bathrooms are more spacious. I highly recommend this resort for its high quality of service and perfect location. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel with only a minor issue"
All in all this hotel has done very well and we would (and have) visited again. We stayed in a spacious deluxe room. it was well appointed, and of good quality. Some Little things that could be improved on in terms of the room maintenance that didn't allow it to reach a 4 star score on this occasion in this category: - the shower nozzle could have […] done with some descaling and the wc door was somewhat creaky. - the ac units were located quite near to the room and the neighbours squeaky AC unit could be heard at night. - the sink taps could have done with some descaling too. As said, these are minor issues and can be easily sorted out. The hotel actually leaves a feedback card for maintenance items requiring attention which is a nice touch. All in all the hotel is very good quality compared to others on Chaweng strip and i highly recommend this hotel. The beach is really good quality too. The hotel has a good and busy vibe, but does have families with small children. On the first night of our stay the hotel upgraded us to a suite due to overbooking. The condition of this suite and bathroom was absolutely luxurious and we promptly booked ourselves in again for later on in our trip. These suites cannot be faulted and are exceptional. I would recommend this hotel to friends and family and will be returning on my next trip to Koh Samui. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Comfortable, well situated hotel. Chaweng beach very busy location. Ideal for party goers, but not if looking for rest. All extra's at hotel quite expensive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, but slightly overpriced."
The hotel was centrally located. We had to negotiate the 8000 Baht compulsory 'gala dinner' fee for New Years eve even though we weren't actually attending the dinner. The original room we booked was not ready so we took a smaller room for one night but got upgraded to a bigger room for the remainder of our stay. Mozzies were a constant pain. We had […] problems with the door locking properly and I woke up one morning with water streaming from the ceiling. The power kept going which left the room very warm and stuffy with no air con. Any issues experienced however, the staff were quick to rectify and need to be commended. Generally it's an awesome hotel but probably could benefit from more inclusions - Free Wifi in the room for a start. I also felt it was a bit steep to charge for the use of the gym!

"Great location bad service"
The location of the hotel is fabulous if you want to be in the heart of the action. But and a big but is the callous and greedy attitude of the management staff. Particularly the front office staff which find it difficult even to smile. They will find ways to squeeze every single dollar they can squeeze out of you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"i keep coming back to the place"
The staff were very welcoming, beach and pool services are great, very private reasort. excellent breakfast, smiling staff, very good SPA. The nature of the reasort is very calming and combines the 5 elements.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great choice, some minor concerns"
Perfect place for quiet away from the busy strip or explosive noise from beach loudspeakers. Excellent poolside and garden setting, virtually 30 seconds from the beach as well as choice of restaurants along the strip. Some confusion with my booking about being upgraded to a deluxe room, when original booking was for a superior room asking for 2 beds […] if available (was somewhat of a neutral or downgrade in my opinion). Rooms are showing their age, as well as bathroom, but newer rooms look phenomenal. Biggest concern was construction noise on the wooden walkways with sanding from 6-8 pm nightly, but this was minor. Few hotels I have stayed at in Thailand required me to wait at the checkout before I could depart--this tells me that they may have had a problem with mini-bar theft or item removal in the past. Nevertheless, I would recommend staying here for the service, amenities, and location. Price was also very good, but hotel is starting to show its age in older rooms.

"Great for a 3 to 4 day stay."
Other than some upgrading work, is a nice experience overall. Great live band plus drinks at 2 for the price of 1 during happy hour is really worth it.Genuine Expedia guest review

The hotel is lovely place to stay it is in a lovely setting and directly onto the beach the staff are very friendly and polite the only thing that spoils the hotel all though it is not their fault is the constant letting off of fireworks on the beach late at night sold by the sellers that prowl the beach at night but I would definately go back to this […] hotel Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great holiday at Chaweng Regent"
We stayed in a Premier Room this time and it is well kept room with a large spa. Would recommend the spa villas which we stayed in last visit as they are roomier and on the ground level.

[…] Overall would recommend this resort to families, couples everyone. Had a fantastic stay with three other couples and definitely will head back in the future.

"Easter 2012 stay"
I stayed at this hotel over Easter with a friend. We arrived late in the evening to find that our reserved "premier" room was not available. We were offered the "deluxe" room and a complimentary spa treatment in compensation. Having seen both rooms the "premier" room is certainly miles better, much more recently renovated and modern. Despite our early […] problems with the room we found the hotel room, grounds and location to be excellent and will certainly be returning soon. It was great to be able to access the restaurants, shopping supermarkets etc of downtown Chaweng from the doorstep. Despite this the hotel rooms and beach area was very quiet and relaxed. Breakfast each morning was great and the beach side bar provides free wifi daily. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Excellent resort in a beautiful setting"
This resort certainly lives up to its publicity. On arrival at the hotel, we were met with a warm welcome by the reception staff who offered a cool towel and refreshing drink. Our check in procedure was swiftly dealt with and our friendly receptionist walked us through the resort grounds to our room and, at the same time, provided us with useful information […] with regard to the facilities provided by the hotel. Our room overlooked one of the garden pools, it was spacious with sufficient hanging space and the bed was super-sized (approximately two three-quarter beds combined). The bathroom and toilet overlooked an attractive atrium and the usual toiletries were provided. Tea and coffee provisions were updated daily together with bottled water. Housekeeping staff were obviously highly efficient, and we had no need to make any requests for unfulfilled services. The restaurant provided the usual full range of buffet breakfast and this was served in the Chom Talay Restaurant overlooking the beach and pool area. The fruits and yogurt provided, together with the bread and croissants, were completely sufficient for my taste and needs. Unfortunately, the coffee was too strong for our Australian taste, but possibly this was directed more for the northern European guests who appear to be in the majority. The resort gardens were outstanding and it was a pleasure walking through the grounds and coming across restful seating areas in attractive settings. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Lovely hotel with great facilities. Excellent location for Chaweng Beach area. Hotel restaurant on the beachfront does a BBQ buffet evening which is definitely recommended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very handy to all you need ,our bungalow was small but needed a good clean.,which was a little disappointing .breakfast very good also ,pools are the big attraction nice clean and relaxing , Heard club noise most nights and we were well back from the road ,but I think its just Koh Samui now. Looking at other resorts along the beach, that look amazing […] on the Internet they are very run down in their pool areas so I'm sure they are not as good as they look .Maybe we were just unlucky with our Bungalow ,staff in early week just went through the motions with little interest but the rest of our stay the staff were good Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Overall great stay in this great resort"
I stayed at Chaweng Regent with my partner for 5 nights in a deluxe bungalow. It was located a couple steps from the garden pool which was great. Both the garden and beach pool are very clean as well in general the whole resort area is maintained quite well. All staff that we spoke to were very friendly and most of their english was ok, not the best, […] but if you speak clearly to them they can understand the jist of what you're saying. Our room was very nice and clean, the only negative was the bed, which is not very comfortable (it's quite hard) and the lighting switches/system is a bit confusing, but you get the hang of it. The resort's location is perfect, right at the start of all the restaurants and shops on chaweng road. Everything is walking distance. The resort also has 2 restaurants. Both are quite pricey compared to the outside street restaurants/pubs. But I do recommend either dining or sitting by the bar at the Red Snapper as the 3 musicians that play nightly are amazing. Great singing and music, very enjoyable. So overall our stay here was great. We enjoyed every moment and would definately stay again if we came back to Koh Samui.
