    Location 7.91 /10

    On the fringes of Chaweng Beach (on the central side), the longest and most frequented beach in Koh Samui, on the east coast of the island. The airport is 4 miles north, which is around fifteen minutes by car. Nathon, the main town in Koh Samui, is opposite, on the west coast, 22 miles away (50 minutes by car).

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    The Beachcomber has 58 rooms in total, divided in superior of entry level standard (53, all situated in the same building), deluxe villas (3) and 2 junior suites. The accommodations are in conformity with the general atmosphere of the establishment, which is basic, a bit sad, rather ugly with regard to the decoration, but equipped anyway with all necessary equipment. However there is a good point: all include a double and single bed as well as a radio-cassette. The three deluxe villas follows the same tone, but also have privacy and more space.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    Built in 1991, the Beachcomber is installed on a narrow rectangular piece of land developed in length which goes from the main street of Chaweng till the beach. Passed an almost unexistent lobby which cannot accommodate more than five or six new guests at a time, you access, on one side of the site, the main building of the hotel, a sad 3-floor building with no lift accommodating the majority of the rooms. Then there are, up to the beach, a small swimming pool, a few bungalows constituting the "high standard" section of the hotel and the only restaurant.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    The only restaurant of the Beachcomber, despite being installed in an unattractive setting, makes an effort to better the routine of its guests. The cuisine is of average level and definitely not surprising, combining the usual Thai specialities with common international dishes; however, each week five different theme evenings are organized, as well as a Thai dance show on Friday evening.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    The public beach of Chaweng, the most frequented in Samui, has the advantage of extending its welcoming extensions of sand over many miles of seaside, then offering a vast space where to frolic, run, etc. However, the price of success is that it is also highly crowded, especially during high-season, which does not make it a particularly relaxing place. Nothing to say about the swimming: the water of the Gulf of Thailand are here at a good level of cleanliness and the level is satisfactory. Many local shops offer, on the beach, water sport services and material: sailing, windsurfing, jet skiing, water skiing, diving, free diving, fishing, canoeing, banana riding, etc.

    To know

    The Beachcomber belongs to the same owner as the Blue Lagoon hotel, also situated in Chaweng, on the north side of the beach.

      • Value for money 7.07
      • Location 7.31

      Centara Grand Beach belongs to a Thai company but is done out in a vaguely colonial style that is certainly more Western than it is Asian. Having opened some 15 years ago, the hotel is one of Koh Samui's bigger hotels, standing in the middle of Chaweng Beach, and is something of an institution on the island. The services here are aimed at the more luxurious end of the market but are sometimes lacking in elegance. Although this establishment is ideally-located for those looking to make the most of the Chaweng nightlife, it is also a great destination for families, thanks to its comprehensive range of facilities.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      • Location 1.0

      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.
