Slightly on the outskirts of the big concentrations of Chaweng Beach, the Blue Lagoon offers a convivial atmosphere in a charming environment, despite a beach that is not always indicated for swimming.

    Location 7.8 /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).

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The Blue Lagoon has a total of 71 rooms: 52 superiors of entry level standard and 2 suites, situated in the main building, as well as 17 bungalows divided in Village Villas (10) and Deluxe Villas (7). The latter is more expensive as it is closer to the beach, bigger and the furniture is in teak. However, the superior rooms remain perfectly suitable: although not equipped with bathtub, they benefit from a good area (more than 215 square feet), a nice furniture and are equipped with all usual facilities. A radio-cassette player is also provided for all rooms.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Built in 1990 and renovated in 1998, the Blue Lagoon extends in between the main road of Chaweng and its beach, in a very beautiful traditional Thai architecture (superposed sections roofing). Passed the lobby at the entrance (dark, a bit heavy, and quite disappointing compared to its external look), the internal site is arranged around the central swimming pool: four main 2-floor building built in an arch and decorated with tropical gardens, a few bungalows and finally the only restaurant, by the end of the beach.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    With the arrival of a new Austrian chef in summer 2001, the menu of the Laguna Terrace, the only restaurant of the Blue Lagoon, sensibly improved, with the creation, together with Thai specialities, of a greater number of dishes of European inspiration. There is also a special children menu a la carte. A band entertains the diners twice a week.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    No doubts this is the most important weakness of the Blue Lagoon's offer. Although by the water, it is actually installed 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.

    To know

    The Blue Lagoon is very close to the airport of Koh Samui and then suffers, many times a day, the unpleasant noises of the incoming planes. The hotel has a young elephant that goes by the seaside three times a day and carries children on its back.

      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.
