  • Where to Stay in Chaweng

    Editor's Guide to Recommended Hotels in Chaweng Beach

    Chaweng is the prime resort town in Samui where you can find action and activities any time, day or night. This lively town, settled on the side of almost seven kilometres of beach interspersed with small rocky capes, houses all that is required to spend a memorable holiday in Samui. Chaweng is a hive of activity featuring all that vacationers could be looking for from small convenient stores to restaurants of practically all world cuisines, along with the imposing Central Festival shopping mall located on the beach road in the town centre.

    The beach itself is pretty much the busiest place in Samui from 07:00 until late. You can spend the whole day on the sand, simply sunbathing on a sun lounger, or enjoying exciting activities such as jet-skiing or splashing away at the Aquapark. Beach vendors roam the beach all day long with refreshments and snacks so you even do not need to move from your spot to get freshly cut fruit or a cold, frosty beer.

    What is 'Editor's Pick':
    Editor’s Picks are the hotels we personally reviewed and liked the most, ones we recommend to our friends and family when they come to Samui and are looking for the best places to stay according to their budget or location preferences.

Hotels Right on the Beach in Chaweng

Why Did We Pick This Hotel:

With just 49 Villas and Suites, Sareeraya specialises in quality rather than quantity. A five-star level of service, fittings and attitude is what makes Sareeraya stand out from the crowd. Suites start at 70sqm while Pool Villas are a generous 100sqm and you can really push the boat out in the beachfront 300sqm Presidential Villa with its private pool. Why not go for healthy gold in the Raya Spa following a workout at the fitness centre? For a chic, stylish stay at a top-of-the-line beachside resort in a prime position, just think Sareeraya Villas & Suites.

What we loved:

  • Great location right on the beach and at short distance from both the airport (15mn away) and Chaweng town centre (10 minutes’ walk)
  • Pool villas offer the ultimate privacy as well as all the amenities to spend a very comfortable stay
  • Excellent choice of facilities, from fitness centre to Thai cooking classes to a large choice of excursions
