“Excellent Hotel....Excellent Service....”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

This was our first time to Koh Samui and were unsure where to stay and what to expect.
We are so glad we chose this resort.... we absolutely loved it. It’s location is perfect overlooking the beach and close to shops. Staff and extremely friendly and service is fantastic. Did I mention the many resort activities to choose from. We travelled with friends that had kids and they could not be more accommodating ...extremely friendly and always remembered our names.
Just beautiful, we will definitely be back

Myself and my family visit Thailand every Easter and we always stayed at Chaweng Regent up until about 4 years ago. We found it had drastically gone down hill with poor service, expensive and unclean.
However after a few positive comments from people we knew we decided to return there again and give it another try.

Thank goodness we did! Something had clearly changed back to how it once was. The location is fantastic pools are brilliant service is excellent rooms are lovely and clean, beach is beautiful, breakfast was fantastic, staff never ever stop and are so friendly,all in all it is back to its fantastic self.

Only one small issue was the price of wifi, in a hotel of this standard we felt it should be included and free for guests. The prices of drinks are a little expensive but we bought from a small beach bar and there was no issue with that.

People over react on here saying its terrible and awful. Clearly they don't have anything better to do! Would definately recommend and we will be back next year!

Dear Danielleclifford,

Thank you for your feedback and for choosing to stay with us again. I am thrilled you are happy with your choice and that we lived up to your expectations.

As for the WIFI, I agree and we have already adjusted the pricing, as well as offer free WIFI in our Chom Talay restaurant beachside thanks to comments like yours. As for the drink prices, indeed there are cheaper drinks in Samui and on Chaweng Beach but I would say that the variety of pricing and venue offers a different level of safety, cleanliness and guest experience for all.

Thanks again and look forward to welcoming you again!

We will for sure go back. The best hotell at samui. Good service, Nice beach, Child friendly...It is located at the start of chaweng street with all the shops and restaurants, but still quite and family friendly.

The spa is a bit expensive, but you have tons of spas at chaweng street

This is an amazing resort. We absolutely loved it, and loved Chaweng Beach. From the moment we stepped off the plane we knew we were in paradise, and thats exactly what Chaweng Regent is ....paradise! We seemed to have been upgraded because our room was a Premier Room (was Deluxe). Just gorgeous, and they had it decked out for honeymoon....what a bonus (one year into our marriage!) The rooms are exactly like the website photos, as is the rest of the resort. Gorgeous bathroom, including huge spa bath (which we just couldnt find the time to use, but was nice to look at). Plenty of space in the room for all of the shopping etc! Very good safe in room. No sign of mossies, and they spray each night as well, and turn down the bed.
We walked up and down the beach for quite a way, and can definitely say this is the best looking resort on the strip! There are loads of deck chairs, and always plenty for everyone (they do get used up around the poolsides, so you may need to reserve early if you want those spots, but there is enough somewhere on the resort grounds). We always took chairs on the beach, and were more than happy. There are plenty of umbrellas and some of the beautiful trees from the resort will shade most chairs later in the day.
The ocean in front of the resort is extremely shallow, and not for "swimming" - more for sitting or bathing, or for children to play. But its great for just sitting in for up to an hour - its also very warm so you dont go in to necessarily "cool down" rather your body temp just drops slightly after a while and its very pleasant and relaxing. At high tide it gets quite a bit deeper up to your armpits and slightly cooler - you can swim out to the rock embankment. A short walk south and you can swim in the ocean waves, or hire a jetski (we did this and it was sooooo much fun! - also a great place to view some of the island from out at sea).
The two resort pools are awesome - again not all that refreshing in April, as it was so hot that the pools never really cool down, but they are very nice. Beach pool has a deep end which is great. Both pools are awesome for children, and there were lots of families holidaying at the resort - this is no bother for those who dont want to hang with little kids either - they are generally amazingly behaved and well entertained by the water and activities. The pool bar is a great place to enjoy a drink - there are 3 happy hours at the resort - we only purchased drinks during this time!
Breakfasts are awesome! They dont change, but we were only here for 6 nights and never got bored with them. Coffee was good. You can order cappucino etc - but this is not free.
Wifi is free from 11am to 11pm in the dining room only. This is more than sufficient for most travellers - unless you are on business I guess.
Service is excellent. We found all staff to be very friendly. My husband befriended the guys in the gym (the gym is more than sufficient for a hotel and never too busy).
Shopping is fantastic at Chaweng. You can even do it whilst sunbathing in front of the resort. Bikinis, beach dresses, sunglasses, jewellery, tattoos etc....all at bargain basement prices! They are not too pushy either....just wave them on or say no and they will carry on. The hotel has a rope that separates the sellers from the resort and they are not allowed over the line to hassle guests.
We were in Samui for Songkran and it was pumping! We loved it.....the streets were crazy with water guns and buckets, but it was so much fun. We recommend Thailand in Songkran! This is just the best way to celebrate New Year! Great food just outside the resort - The Cloud (upstairs) was awesome food and 2 for 1 drinks! Also Kho San was very popular with great food, and the Ark Bar is a must - my husband watched rugby and league here a couple of times - got their free wifi code, changed the channel for him etc!
Thai people are so awesome. Thanks Chaweng Regent - we absolutely loved you and you made our holiday! We hope to come back SOON! (we cant believe anyone would complain about anything at this resort!)

Room Tip: Closer to the beach would be best. We loved room 119 (Premier) - would also recommend 118. Our frien...

We stayed here last year to try the other end of Chaweng and it turned out to be the best spot. Keeping in mind we like to it all, relax by the pool reading and sunbaking then being in the hustle and bustle shopping and eating! This was the perfect spot for it. Nice and close to everything but the pools are both far back from the road, really peaceful!
We got upgraded from a bungalow to a superior room which looked over the garden pool. It was really nice, beautiful gardens and having the two pools was good, the garden pool was always quieter but it had the bar!
Everyone is always going to have their own experience to share but I would definately read carefully what the bad parts are; usually they are minor things made bigger by arrogance! Have a look at the photos and decide for yourself; what someone thinks is an out of style room is what you think is perfect Thai charm which I think is exactly what this resort has!!
Just about to head back to the same place for another break! Cant wait!
