This hotel is built on a hillside so there are many steps to get to the rooms. I recently had a knee replacement & with no lift this was not the hotel for me. However Mt. Tu at reception was most helpful in getting me into a room on the pool level. (There were 100+ steps to get to my original room) so I appreciate all of his efforts. The hotel is beautiful, clean & modern. All staff were professional & concerned with guests comfort at all times. The resturant had a full menu & the spring rolls were great. A big thank you to Mr.Tu for all he did to make my stay pleasant & memorable.

"Fine hotel but could have done better"
The hotel was fine - nothing special. Two things kinda bummed me out. First, the pool is only open between 9am and 6pm. I'm fairly pale and prefer to swim earlier in the morning or later at night. These restrictions are due to "chemical treatment" of the pool. I don't buy it. Also, my room was the farthest away - up 6 flights of stairs with no elevator. It wasn't terribly convenient if you forgot something. I needed to print out a tour voucher and the hotel apparently had no way to print it??? I had to find an Internet cafe in town. It wasn't an unpleasant stay, just had bizarre glitches.

"NYE"
We stayed here New Year's Eve and New Year's day. We had a pleasant stay at the Samui Resort. Our room was on the top of the hill, which required us to climb a mountain of stairs to reach our room (I think the final count was 115 steps lol). It wasn't terrible, but coming back at night after having a few drinks was a different story. The pool was nice, and the staff friendly. We were invited to the NYE dinner before leaving for the full moon party. Food was great! The hotel is surrounded by a ton of plants and vegetation so there are lots of little critters including lizards and all types of bugs. Didn't bother us too much though. Would definitely stay again.

"Nice staff - average resort"
Stayed for five nights. If you are looking for a cheap place near the more Magaluf part of Samui this is for you. Creaking floorboards in rooms, so make sure you stay upstairs! Could hear awful karaoke music from the town every night from our room until 3am. Breakfast is ok. Staff are very friendly. A steep hill to the rooms. Basically no luxury, just a place to stay in one of the worst parts of the island.

Staff was helpful, friendly, polite. Our room was up several flights of stairs - no elevator. Not a big deal for us, but might be for others. Room was clean. Bathroom was ok - shower had issues draining, but we had this problem everywhere we stayed in Thailand. Room service was decently priced, pretty standard fare. Happy hour by the pool was nice. The free breakfast was a plus - much more convenient than trying to find somewhere else to eat in the morning. Location as pretty good - about a 15 minute walk to Chaweng Beach. They do offer a free shuttle down there every 30 minutes. Think this hotel is best for couples, adults - didn't see any families/children there.

"Great hill setting, pool & gardens. Bad bathroom."
I enjoyed my time there and particularly the hill setting makes it a relaxing stay. You feel relaxed there. Only issues were the shops nearby on the street are poor and you need to go to Chaweng for good choice (5 mins). The pool is great but the staff do not seem to care about the pool bar and serving you.

"When Thailand meets the Shining"
This hotel may have rocked the Kasbah back in 1982 but it now is more reminiscent of an open air version of the hotel in the Shining. There are quite literally hundreds of stairs to access the rooms, no lift, and no porter to assist with luggage. We had quite the work out lifting our bags to our room on the “3rd floor” which was accessed after about sixty steps up a slope. The pool atmosphere was bleak, pool was not clean, water features were all shut down and the breakfast was dismal at best. We stayed here after finding on hotels.com for one night before we had an early morning flight; their car service to the airport was quite expensive.

"Sleepless night with "Beep" sound for whole night"
Allocated the room at the higher area and have to climb the staircase for more than 100 steps with 28" size luggage bag. At the midnight, suddenly "Beep" sound coming in the room. Searching around for the "Beep" sound, unplug the TV power but the sound still beeping and eventually contacted the front office. Unfortunately, the front office male staff said he's alone and cannot leave his position and hang up the phone. No choice and have to endure with the sound for the whole night and it's a ruin and sleepless night.

"Disappointed :("
The first impression of the hotel was terrible; the hotel receptionist was not friendly at all. No greetings even a smile towards us. The receptionist (a local guy) was commenting bad about my hotel bookings whereby,according to him the total headcount that I have provided/booked earlier is wrong seems. He throws the booking copy (hotel's copy) and asked me to check.Finally, my booking was found correct and I have to manage the booking and get rooms (1 suite + 3 deluxe rooms) for my family members. The booking was correct and not even a courtesy 'Sorry' word from that guy.We were treated badly on the first day till we have to carry our luggage to our rooms.

"Cheap Hotel you get what you pay for !!"
Friendly staff, 10 minute walk to main shopping area. Rooms are very average, towels were thread bare and needed to be used as cleaning clothes not towels. Breakfast was pleasant , the cook was very friendly, but all there was to choose from was omelet, boiled egg, scrambled egg , or fried egg, so as long as you liked eggs its was fine ! Pool was awesome, had a bar but no bartender . At the end of the day for what we payed for 7 days it was value for money !

"A bit disappointed..."
We were slightly disappointed by a few things. When we arrived, we were notified that they were renovating the swimming pool since June/July. However, there was no notification when we booked the hotel in late July. It shouldn't be a problem if the hotel is near the beach. However, it takes about 10 minutes to walk to the beach if you know the short-cut. The hotel provides free shuttle bus every half hour to Macdonald's near the beach, and you can tell the driver what time to pick you up. When we arrived, we were notified that there was no double-bed hills room available, so we get a free upgrade non-hills room (Room number 301). YEAH! Great! However, the bathroom stank badly! We had to cover every single drainage with tissue paper. Why didn't I change another room? I'm not sure how much better other rooms are in such an old hotel. The hotel charges 200B per person to the airport. If you don't travel alone, you might want to book a taxi from beach road. Our taxi charged 300B and came to the hotel 10 minutes earlier than booking time.

"Close to the mall"
Friendly staff, always helpful & the resort was close enough to the mall and not far from the airport. Onsite restaurant isnt that great & the bar at the pool wasnt operational when we were there. Although lots of eateries/bars nearby. Free shuttle to the mall was a bonus. Conditions of rooms were satisfactory, we were at poolside so very convenient if we needed a dip in the pool. Overall stay was comfortable. Not wheelchair friendly, if u have lots of luggage be prepared to get muscles from all the lifting, especially if u have to walk up the stairs. Yes, the resort is on a slope. Pay extra for a deluxe room closer to reception. I'd stay again.

"loved everything about this place."
I can't fault this hotel. First place we stopped in Thailand and it set the bar high as it was under £10 a night. The room was big, clean and had a nice bathroom. It overlooked the pool on the balcony which was lovely in the evening to sit and have a drink. Only the sounds of the wildlife around. About 10 minutes walk from all the action/beaches of Chaweng so enough out of it not to get the spill out of a night but still very close! Would have liked to have stayed at this hotel longer, although Samui wasn't really my thing. Reception let us leave our bags all day for no fee when leaving. Would recommend this place.

"Over 100 steps up to room and brown water"
We stayed in a 'hill room' - that means you could be facing 100+ steps up every time. It was a slog every night coming back to hotel. But the worse part was the bathroom - the sink and toilet constantly had brown or yellow running water (we stayed 8 days - no improvement). The toilet always looked like someone had just used it. It was very unpleasant and very disappointing for the price of hotel. Pool and other hotel facilities were nice and staff friendly. Pool table was an absolute joke though - in terrible condition - replace the thing for goodness sake!

"Great Budget Resort"
The place was fantastic - yes there are a lot of stairs but the staff were amazing, the rooms and facilities were very nice, clean and we were all very happy. It is not a 5 star resort - it is a budget resort but excellent value for money. If you want 5 star, stay somewhere else. If you want great accommodation, wonderful friendly staff for a great price stay at Nova Samui. There were 3 of us (3 rooms) and we all loved it. One friend dropped some money and the cleaner found it, hid it in her room and told the front desk to catch us on the way in and let us know. How many hotels would put in that much effort. It was 5 minutes walk to the main street, shopping centre and all the restaurants and night life without being in the hustle and bustle of the main street like other resorts. I have two friends planning an Xmas trip to Koh Samui and happily recommended this hotel, it is value for money.

The Nova Samui Resort is very well looked after and looks great. The staff were very friendly, they had no problem booking a tour or transfers for us and they looked after us well. The room was very nice although it was up quite a few steps which could be a problem for some. There is a free pool table in the lobby and it also had a bar and restaurant. The pool area is also very nice with a pool bar. It was very quiet when we were there. The only bad points are that they are a 20 minute walk to the beach and a ten minute walk to the town centre although a shuttle bus service is available. The room price was also excellent. I would recommend the resort to others.

We stayed there for 12 days with my husband. Very happy with our choice cause we got more than we expected for what we paid for. Our hill room was quite big and nice with beautiful view to the garden from your balcony. Calm place, not many people, maybe because of low season. Cleaning ladies did a great job every day, new towels and etc.The pool was lovely but tiles in some places were old and had to be fixed. It also worked till 6 pm for some reasons, a bit early I believe. Free bus goes to Chaweng walking street every 30 mins, was useful. No free Wi-Fi in the room, we had to pay for it.

"A couple of hiccups but would stay here again"
This was my 2nd stay at the Nova. The first was just 2 nights and no issues. This time was a week and I had a couple of minor problems. I will get to them later as I don't want to give the wrong idea - this is a good place to stay and I would stay here again. It is less than 10 mins walk from the Central Festival shopping centre which is the largest in Samui. It is a bit over 10 mins walk to Chaweng Beach which is the main spot for night life. I was alone but it would also be a good place for a family. I had a Junior Suite which had two rooms plus a bathroom with shower and bath. Room 1 had a large single bed, lounge suite and coffee table. Room 2 had a king size bed, TV, fridge, desk, wardrobe etc... Both spacious rooms, a bit dated, but comfortable with separate air conds. The resort sprawls over a sloping hill so depending on your room placement you may have to walk up quite a few steps. There is a large pool and the food is ok for the price. The problems I had: One day I had no water due to a broken pipe. My hot water system broke down on two separate occasions. My air cond broke down four times. I must say though the staff were very attentive and rectified each problem very quickly. Also the WiFi kept dropping out which was annoying especially since I had to pay extra for it (only 300 Baht for 1 week).

It sure beats walking. The hotel is close to the nightlife and the huge new shopping center. Bars and cafes are all close by as are car and motorbike hire. Around the pool, which is clean and a good size there are no umbrellas The only complaint I have about my flight and hotel package is I am still waiting a refund for a change of flight 6 weeks after the change.

"10 minutes walk to Chaweng Beach"
The hotel is located about 10 minutes walk to Chaweng Beach which is where the main night life is, and there are also regular shuttles which can drop you off there. It is also about 5 minutes walk to the Central Festival shopping centre which has just opened and is by far the largest in Koh Samui. My room was quite spacious, clean, comfortable and overall pleasing. You have to pay for the WiFi but it is only 100 Baht per day or 300 per week which is not much. Another downside is the resort is set on a large sloping block so depending which room you get you may have to walk up a lot of steps to get to it...
