I have just returned home from a 12 night stay at Koh Samui staying at Chaba Resort Deluxe room Ocean view wing. This is our 3rd stay at Chaba Resort and we keep returning. This resort is value for money, yes there are better resorts along the beach, but you get what you pay for. Remember you only sleep in it. You have the best of both worlds with a short distance between pool and beach. Water crystal clear, soft sand between your toes and swimming amongst translucent fish so if you want to relax this is the place to be. I have found staff to be very friendly. Sometimes language is a barrier but remember we are the visitor. I booked through Wotif in February 2018 as they were $500 cheaper than Flight Centre so get in early for a bargain. If your hubby enjoys a beer the Islander sells for 70 baht or you can pay Tropical Murphy's a visit for the coldest beer on the island. Everything is within walking distance. I have read reviews from other people experiences. I think if your family has special dietary needs either you provide whats needed or expect to pay the difference. If you require transport to the Airport book early so your not disappointed as rooms are inspected before your departure .A fee of 2000 baht is required on arrival and returned on checkout. The garden is magnificent. Squirrels jumping from branch to branch, small Geckos on the trunk of palms, taking this in whilst eating breakfast. Our room was cleaned daily. Clean beach towels and towels provided daily. I would recommend this resort to anyone travelling.

Room Tip: Ocean View side

Very happy with everything . The staff was really nice ,we paid 2000 bat deposit on arrival and ask the manager if we can have our deposit on the last day she was happy to do that ,the room was spacious nice and clean , big choice of breakfast and the hotel comes on the best part on the Chawang beach .

Room Tip: We had room on the lake wing which was really nice .

Second time here. Good place to stay not top of the scale nor bottom. Easy and friendly staff. Food good. Two pools to choose from. A little noisy as construction was going on next door but things have to be built don’t they. Would recommend. Booking stuff up. But we’re compensated with a very nice tea and massage. Second pool at the lakeside building is quieter. Sad to go home.

I booked chaba for nearly a month but was told that two days of August we would need to check out for two nights as they were fully booked. When it was time to check out we asked if the reception staff could recommend another hotel but they were very unhelpful and reluctant to help. After physically walking around looking for an available hotel we moved out for two nights and then reluctantly moved back as the other hotel we stayed at was fully booked for the month of August. The pool manager who I must add is extremely pleasant and helpful and knows how to make chaba guests feel welcome tried in vain to make a plan to avoid us the inconvenient move. The reception staff need a few tips from him to learn how to be more pro active and processional as he is. The owner is a lovely man who comes by every day to check up on his guests as all the previous years. (Pity he cannot speak English) All in all the hotel is good, clean and comfortable. Pool area is great!

Be wary of the fridge. From day 1 our fridge stunk. It smelt so bad that even the water smelt funny when we had left it in there to cool, so we ended up not using it. Did tell reception but they did nothing about it.Beds are also pretty hard. Hurt alot to sleep on your side. Pool is nice and clean, lovely beach too. The beach has free-of-charge sunbeds for customers of the hotel to use. Near the pool area there is a thai massage area which is reasonable priced and the staff were friendly. The hotel is close to Chaweng strip, with lots of restaurants. We never walked to the disco area, however Bondi's bar was great if you do not want to go far. Overall, we had a nice stay. It is clear the hotel are aiming for 4-star status, however they have quite a way to go.
