Location : The P&P Samui Resort is in the heart of all the action with plenty of entertainment and restaurants.

Not a luxurious resort but if you are looking for something that is good value and budget then this would be a perfect option.

5 Moo 2, Chaweng Beach, Samui
Location : The Montien House Hotel is on Chewang beach in the heart of all the action. The rooms are clean, comfortable, well furnished and come with all the necessary amenities although the entire complex could do with refurbishment as it is looking a little jaded. The swimming pool although not huge is adequate for the size of the resort and good place to relax as there are always free sundbeds available. The only downsides are that the beach is not the best here due to the close proximity of the wave breaker which makes the water a little stagnant at times plus the WiFi would only function properly near the pool or restaurant. However a good place to stay after some agitated night at this location.

92/1 Moo 2, North Chaweng Beach, Chaweng, Koh Samui
Location : The Anantara Lawana Resort & Spa set at the north end of Chaweng on its own secluded private beach, only 10 – 15 min walk downhill to Chaweng town. The resort is constitued of 122 individual bungalows and villas many which have their own private pools. I will hightly recommend spending that little extra 10 – 15% to have a pool villa as being able to jump in your own pool at anytime is a definite benefit and worth a bit more. There is a fabulous Infinity pool situated by the beach for guests which is a lovely addition. The only bad point is that as the resort is spread out on the hill some of the villas require more walking to get to them, but at least it will keep you fit!
