    Location 7.25 /10

    On the fringes of Chaweng Beach (on the north side), the longest and most frequented beach in Koh Samui, on the east coast of the island. The airport is 2 miles north, which is less than ten minutes by car. Nathon, the main town in Koh Samui, is opposite, on the west coast, 19 miles away (45 minutes by car). A five minute walk from the first boutiques on the main street of Chaweng.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The Amari Palm Reef resort has 187 rooms, geographically divided in three parts. In the direction of the beautiful swimming pool and the sea area, 20 superiors and 8 junior suites are the only ones to benefit from the sea view. On the other side of the main street, a second series of 33 superior rooms surrounds a lovely solarium with a good sized pool: it is the "Thai village", so called because its group of dark wood bungalows and its gardens give a local style to the infrastructure. Finally, 84 deluxe rooms are built around a beautiful garden, in the extension of the Thai village. The accomodation of the standard rooms (superior), all in a sober dark wood, stands out because of its character, good taste and its nice, plain decoration. Luxury and comfort are the keywords of the accomodation at the Amari Palm Reef. The necessary equipment is provided: Satellite TV, minibar, direct telephone. The bathrooms are small but equipped with the essentials: hairdryer and many welcome products. Note that the deluxe rooms are equipped with a DVD player. Films are available at the reception.

    Overview 7.30 /10

    Built in 1989 and renovated during 2003, the Amari Palm Reef Resort ages better than many hotels built during the same year. The establishment is divided in two parts which are facing on both sides of the main road of Chaweng. At the back, on the "land" side, there are shaded wooden bungalows which have a traditional Thai style, often with two floors, provided with a swimming pool and a nice garden surrounded by two buildings including the deluxe rooms. At the front, on the sea side and passed the nice welcome lobby, the hotel is composed of two grand 2-floor wings on both sides of the main swimming pool, one accomodating the rooms and the other the common spaces (boutiques and restaurants).

    Food and drink 8.00 /10

    Two good standard restaurants, installed in a nice and fancy setting, are available to the guests of the Amari Palm Reef Resort: the main restaurant is specialised in Thai gastronomy, fish and seafood. The Prego, where the chef is Italian, offers an excellent and subtle Italian cuisine. The setting is very nice there and the restaurant is worth its reputation: every evening, more than 200 clients go try the food and impeccable service. Both of them favour privacy. In addition, theme cuisine evenings are organised twice a week (Thai buffet evening on Sundays and beach party on Wednesdays).

    Beach 8.30 /10

    It is no doubt the most important weakness of the offer of the Amari Palm Reef Resort. Although by the water, it is actually located north of Chaweng Beach, on a part of the beach opposite a half-open lagoon where the sea level is particluarly low during low-season (summer months). As a result, swimming in this period is very discouraging if not impossible, taking into consideration the insufficient volume of water. Consequently, the beach -which is lovely- is also much less frequented than a bit more south of Chaweng, where the crowd of swimmers is bigger. You will have more calm even if you lose some pleasures of the sea. However, an external company partner of the hotel ensures water sports services (free diving, diving, game fishing, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and canoeing).

    To know

    The hotel is part of a reknown Thai chain, also based in Bangkok, Phuket, Pattaya and Chiang Mai. The Amari Palm Reef Resort added 84 new deluxe rooms in 2003 and the "Sivara spa" which offers many treatments in a very beautiful and plain setting, open towards the outside.

      Open since 2001, the Impiana is a nice small hotel but is highly lacking in facilities as it has 98 rooms available. The hotel is located on the shores of Chaweng Noi Beach. You will need to travel for two miles to reach the centre of Chaweng. The hotel is comfortable and constructed parallel to the beach.

      Open since May 2006, the Kandaburi Resort and Spa is a comfortable establishment. Its typically Thai architecture combines very well with the decor and vegetation. It benefits from a beautiful location in front of Chaweng Beach. Although the hotel does not have childcare, you can find many families but also couples.

      The Tongsai Bay Cottages follows its own rhythm. Enjoying a more remote location than the complexes at Chaweng Beach, this hotel thrives in its surroundings. Here, life takes on the relaxing and tranquil pace guests usually look for when on holiday and the complex has all the facilities you could need: spa, pool, beach, table tennis, and a relaxation area. It's true that this isn't a luxury resort, but it still holds a few secrets. In this complex, couples, families, and groups of friends all fit in in their own way. The establishment especially attracts a Japanese and Korean clientele.

      The sign at the entrance sets the tone, with the following written in black and white: "Member of the Design Hotels". This statement would hardly be noticed in Berlin or in the trendy districts of London, but when you read this sign wearing flip-flops, with a gaudy shoulder bag, right in the heart of touristic Thailand between Chaweng Beach and Koh Samui, it takes on a whole new dimension. Why? First, because design is very uncommon in this region that is distinguished by its Oriental Zen style, at least in the hotels. Second, because those who feel comfortable surrounded by clean lines, solid colours, and a full complement of modern technology, will have found the establishment of their dreams here. In addition, this hotel has a number of surprises. Here's a clue: red.

      The Chaweng Cove is the type of hotel you come to for the price. As long as you bear this in mind you'll know what (not) to expect and you might even go so far as to appreciate some of the things the hotel does have to offer. This is no luxury hotel but rather an economical option where elegance is not a matter of importance. The hotel offers a basic level of comfort but the cramped surroundings do make the place feel crowded. Then again, that's the price you pay for a hotel at the heart of Chaweng, standing right on the famous beach.
