Comfortable hotel located on the beach but at the quiet end of Chaweng. Just a short walk or tuk tuk ride to the hustle of Chaweng. The staff were amazing. The staff attended to all our needs and welcomed us with happy smiles each day. Had a really fun and relaxing time here.
We were greeted with complimentary chilled drinks upon arrival. Check-in was quick and smooth. The staff took us to our villa on a buggy ride. The villa was spotlessly clean, spacious and comfortable. The design is simple yet modern. There were Thai, Russian and French TV channels without English subtitles but that did not bother us much as the wifi network was excellent for online streaming. Motorbike rentals is not a problem. We rented a motorbike directly at the villa. The rental payment is required only upon checking-out. There is a complimentary daily shuttle service (3 times a day) to Baan Talay Resort for thes guests to use its private beach but we went on our own. A large beach bag with 2 beach towels are provided together with 2 large umbrellas. Complimentary continental breakfast is provided daily at the restaurant. Chaweng Beach is about 7 minutes away, Tesco Lotus is about 10 minutes away and the Fishermen's Village is about 15 minutes away from the villa. Halal foodstalls and restaurants are not that difficult to find, too. For those who prefer a place to stay that is quiet and serene, this is an excellent place to stay. We spent 4 nights here at villa no. 24 and we enjoyed every bit of it. All the staff were helpful, polite and pleasant.
The hotel was okay, it was satisfactory. The food onsite is good, the hotels private beach is worth staying here for alone. The staff are pleasant and the scenery is amazing.
All facilities are onsite including laundry diving trips and you're at the top end of the main strip
I'd go back
San Souci (pronounced son soo see) was everything I was hoping - right on the beach, the rooms were sweetly thai style while also being comfortable, the staff were extremely helpful...
What I was not expecting were the trucks that drove past periodically after 2pm blaring music and ads for bars, as San Souci backs directly onto the main shopping strip. There's also a bar very nearby that plays music loudly until late at night. I had picked this hotel because it was one of the few with 'No in-house DJ' and I thought that meant it would be quiet! I was wrong.
Otherwise: Complimentary water and beach towels, a library of books abandoned by previous guests in a range of languages, breakfast was OK (we had to BYO soy milk but they didn't mind) - we didn't try the dinner because there were no vegetarian options at all.
Located on Koh Samui's eastern coast, Chaweng Noi is considered one of the island's more exclusive beaches. Luxury resorts and private villas offer access to tranquil white sand beaches shaded by towering palm trees. The turquoise blue sea is the perfect setting for spending the day on a sun lounger beneath a beach umbrella or snorkeling through shallow waters in search of colorful coral reefs.
