The New Star Beach Resort is an establishment designed for families or people travelling on a tight budget. However, it enjoys a nice seaside location and underwent a relatively satisfactory renovation in 2007, making it an altogether average establishment, neither particularly pretty nor ugly. One of its assets is that it has a nice beach of fine sand, in the purest Chaweng style. Unfortunately, we felt that there were too many bungalows in the resort.

    Location 6.07 /10

    Located in the southern part of Chaweng Beach, the New Star is admittedly quite far from the centre, but the resort does provide a shuttle service. For getting to the airport, the journey will take about 20 minutes in a taxi.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The New Star has 74 guest rooms, which we class as too many since nearly the entire garden is crammed with bungalows.

    The rather cluttered feeling to the place is probably the major disadvantage of this establishment, although the accommodation as a whole is perfectly adequate for this category of hotel. The rooms are spacious and include a nice bathroom (the second floor ones also have an outdoor shower). They're reasonably nicely, but plainly decorated, and feature a balcony. Only a few of them offer a sea view, however, and the accommodation units in the garden are bunched closely together.
    Therefore, guests have to keep the curtains drawn if they are to enjoy even a minimum of privacy.

    However, the rooms are decently sized, especially if you're here on a family holiday. What is more, while the rooms in the standard category are big, and the villa suites and the pool villas are immense.

    The accommodation reflects the general atmosphere of the resort: the interior is neither amazing nor worth criticizing.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    The New Star Beach Resort complex extends from the sea towards the hill where the reception area is located. Entirely renovated in 2007, one of the resort's original features is the couple of bungalows standing right on the beach. The setting is colourful, outdone in terms of luxury by other establishments of the region, but a lot less 'rustic' than other hotels.

    The hotel's main gate and the reception area are on top of a hill that slopes gently down towards the beach and the sea. The area between the two is marked by a dense pattern of little paths and bungalows.

    Other than the spa, which is close to the reception area and provides a very pleasant setting with the same colour scheme as in the main hall and with a remarkable attention to detail, all the other communal areas are by the beach. This is where you'll find the infinity pool and the restaurants. Broadly speaking, the atmosphere here is friendly, although the swimming pool is far too small for all the guests at the resort to enjoy a dip at the same time.

    Food and drink 5.70 /10

    The complex has 2 restaurants: the first is close to the swimming pool and the second is close to the reception.

    The first restaurant affords a beach view and is nearly entirely outdoors. It serves international cuisine with some 'westernised' Thai specialties, i.e. not very spicy local food. It also plays host to regular theme evenings (Italian, Thai or barbecues). It's worth adding that for the 'barbecue' evenings, guests can enjoy fresh fish (shrimps, squid, etc.) grilled on the spot; a real treat!

    The breakfast room is slightly higher up. It's air-conditioned, which is a relief for those who can't take the heat.

    Beach 8.70 /10

    The New Star deserves its title as a 'Beach Resort' as it does have a beautiful beach. It is located in the southern part of Chaweng, where the palm trees and fine sand are of international renown. You will not be disappointed by the beauty of the sea, either. However, the wooden deckchairs available here are in a shabby state and could really do with being replaced.

    To know

    The spa doesn't have enough massage rooms, so be sure to book in advance to be certain of getting an appointment.

      Located along Chaweng Beach, the Muang Samui is a nice boutique hotel. It has a beautiful garden with luxurious vegetation which surrounds all its premises. The place is mainly advantageous for couples rather than families, since it has no structures to accommodate children. However, the hotel offers an on-demand baby-sitting service.

      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.

      • 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.
