Lovely hotel but far from centre
The evening staff were very helpful as regards booking a rental car and boat transfers etc. However the morning staff of the day we rented the car refused to be a third party witness of any previous damages even though we were told the night before that they would. Restaurant was closed very early so had to depend on the very few restaurants surrounding. Chaweng beach is beautiful and we spent a lot of time there although a good 30 minute walk. We had a great stay but the hotel is a good distance from the main town. Would highly recommend to higher a car to see all that koh samui has to offer!

Convenient hotel in the calmer part of chaweng
The service was exceptional. The room was decent sized and cleaned everyday. The view from balcony to the pool was also good. The pool was quite big and clean. The breakfast was a little too expensive at 250 baht and the bathroom had a bit of a smell but except for that, it was a good value for the money. The location was quiet but walking distance to the chaweng downtown area. There were also some good restaurants close by.
