We were very happy when we arrived to the hotel, very tired. So the bed was the perfect thing waiting for us. Super comfortable hard bed. Very spacious room and bathroom. The room was clean but the bathroom (shower and tub) were both dirty, that was a bit disappointing. We had the breakfast included and it was a good buffet...

Loved our time at the Novotel in Chaweng. Situated perfectly right on the beach with many bars and restaurants in close proximity so that we could try somewhere different each night. The pool was great for us and the kids. Breakfast was included and had a great variety and probably the best bacon we had in all of our trip...

Our beach side room was fabulous, large and comfortable.The bathroom was massive, only complaint here was the mould in the shower. We loved everything about this hotel except for the food and drink prices. Way too expensive. Guests can't afford to drink here. Much cheaper food and drinks further up the beach. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely...

Does the job well. Excellent breakfast buffet, larger and kiddies' pools, beach front and comfortable rooms. Easy for an unadventurous holiday with small children. Beachfront restaurants and massage booths up the beach offer better food and value than the in-house offerings, though none of it is quite up to standard if you're used to the mainland. Slight smell of drains,...

We visited this resort on a number occasions while relatives of ours where staying there for a week. A lot has been put into the design of the place, it's like a massive temple or castle.
