Our stay at the Chaweng Regent was made very pleasant by the hotel staff. We would like to thank Khun Oriphon in particular. I would have given the hotel itself a better rating if there had been free Wi Fi on the property. The restaurants were very good, especially the Red Snapper. Going outside the property was a nightmare for us as the blaring noise […] from vans going up and down the road advertising kick boxing and restaurants was unbearable.

Location in heart of Chaweng, so that was good. Hotel staff lovely and buffet breakfast good. Unfortunately for what we paid, over $250 Aus dollars a night for the description of a Deluxe room, we were shocked at the room we were given which apparently was a delux. Room very very run down and in need of a complete renovation. Everything old and therefore […] did not look clean. Room shockingly designed that bed was in part of room that had two steep stairs leading down to it so in middle of night when wanting to use the bathroom, you would have to make sure you didn't fall over these steep stairs. Wifi policy ridiculous at this hotel. Only available from 11am to 11pm. So there was no wifi outside of these times. Wifi was only available in outdoor hotel restaurant which meant you couldn't use the wifi area at night as the mosquitoes would bite you while you sat there. Also asked for two room keys and were told we could only have one. This was very inconvenient. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great resort right on the beach."
This is a great resort on the beach and in the middle of all the restaurants and shops of Chaweng. Breakfast was excellent. Free wifi from 11am until 11pm in the beach restaurant and surrounds. Lovely gardens. Constant vigilance of staff for mosquitoes with regular spraying of rooms. Connecting rooms available. Tailor, tour shop and gift shop all on […] site. 2 pools, garden and beach. We found garden pool very cool and beach pool a little better. No hope of getting a pool lounge at the beach pool after 8am as all have towels put on them to reserve despite many signs around asking for no reservations. Garden pool much easier to get a lounge.

"No room at inn despite Expedia Booking and payment"
Arrived after several hours journey to be asked for payment on arrival. I had selected to pay hotel directly on booking. I questioned being asked to pay before being shown room, but didn't make a fuss. Only then were we told the Manager would be speaking to us. Basically informed that they had over booked. They did arrange accommodation at the nearby […] Centara Grand but I disliked how we were forced to pay then be told of the situation. Something they clearly knew about. I wouldn't have minded had they not been deceitful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Tropical, nice feel, bad disorganised staff"
That invoroment is lovely and the location is prefect , the staff some were friendly some were not happy , and looks like there is no structure in managing staff, and booking a restarant via staff was painful.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A stay in paradise"
Great Hotel, near the action, but no street noise. Wonderful breakfast. Highly recommend. A small, but well equiped gym. The only downfall was that I had to pay for WiFi.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A little piece of paradise"
A warm welcome awaited us and all the staff were helpful and friendly. We had a low end (priced) room but still had lots of space and it was very nice. Walking along the beach front, the hotel looked to be one of the best that we saw. The Chaweng strip is very touristy and can be quite noisy day and night but the Regent is the complete opposite. Calm, […] quiet and beautiful but it is also close to the action if you want it. Eating and drinking in the hotel was 2 or 3 times more expensive than most places near by and having to pay for WIFI when it is free everywhere else was disappointing. Note to all: Avoid Grand Sea Discovery Co (day trips by speed boat), they are massively over priced, bad customer service and really not worth it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beware wifi offers - free is not free"
The hotel is ok - located on the beach among beautifully maintained gardens. The pools are busy and noisy and the pool towels are threadbare and fraying at the edges. The staff were generally fine - the manager was helpful and upgraded us when we had noisy neighbours due to being in a locked interconnecting room (you hear everything next door). The […] bure was fantastic - would very much recommend. The biggest disappointment was the offer of "free wi fi". Yes it is free from 10 am to 11 pm in the restaurant area. Anywhere else you need to purchase wi fi and it is very flakey and unstable. The breakfast was plentiful and varied. Chaweng Beach was quite dirty with debris and bottles in it. Was not cleaned constantly. The hotel is in the heart of Chaweng so all amenities and shopping is close by. This is advertised as 3.5 star and is just that. We thought it was a little pricey for what we got considering it was low season. Comparable 5 star hotels were cheaper Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Chaweng Beach Resort"
Chaweng Beach Resort is centrally located to the hub of Chaweng and it has beach access. The gardens are beautifully maintained, staff are friendly and both pools are clean and well looked after. The gym is also well equipped with good quality machines.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is in the perfect location on Chaweng beach. One side of the hotel is directly on the beach with free sun lounges for hotel guests to use (bonus!). The other side is the main street with restaurants, bars, markets and a 7 eleven. Once inside the hotel grounds all the sounds and hustle/bustle of the streets simply disappear and you are in […] a beautiful tropical oasis. The gardens are meticulously maintained and the pool area. Breakfast had everything you could imagine and the staff are wonderful. At night time there are many restaurant set up along the beach and plenty of bars also on the beach nearby if you want to party. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
There is nothing bad about this hotel but nothing menorable either. If you are looking to stay in the heart of the action on chewang beach then this is a great pick, but for the same price you can stay in a much nicer hotel in a different area of samui.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice close to beach"
very good made you comfortable stay there all the time third timeGenuine Expedia guest review
"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!

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!

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

"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

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.

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
