Chaba Cabana Beach Resort

Koh Samui, Thailand

The hotel

In arguably the prettiest spot on Koh Samui, the Chaba Cabana Beach Resort is a bright and cheerful island escape on the soft white sands of Chaweng Beach – studded by palm trees. From rooms to reception, it’s been designed with a tropical tribal flavour. Cashing in on its beachfront spot, its pool stretches out towards the sands and its restaurant windows open up to reveal infinite views of the sea. But, if you can tear yourself from the vista, it also puts you just a walk from the shops, bars and restaurants of lively Chaweng itself, making it ideal for relaxation and recreation.

So many things to commend the hotel and staff for, it would take too long. After a hectic week in Patong this was just perfect. Rooms were kept very clean every day as well as all outdoor areas. The pool, just brilliant, and all the staff from top to bottom were fantastic. One of the most relaxing holidays we have had. Hotel was in a perfect location. The beach walk is lovely with numerous bars and restaurants all the way to the centre. Hotel restaurant could do with a new strategy, not very inspiring, but that said, this is a truly wonderful place to relax. Read less

This hotel promised so much but delivered so little. The location was great right on the beach, but after that it’s not so good. The pool area beds are very uncomfortable and extremely dated, and for those who do not worship the sun, shade a difficult to find especially in the afternoons. The rooms are nice, but the air conditioning is sporadic… Read more
This hotel promised so much but delivered so little. The location was great right on the beach, but after that it’s not so good. The pool area beds are very uncomfortable and extremely dated, and for those who do not worship the sun, shade a difficult to find especially in the afternoons. The rooms are nice, but the air conditioning is sporadic and with only having one key card, every time you re-enter the room, you have to start the cooling process all over again. This is false economy and makes spending time in the room oppressive with it taking so long to cool down. The breakfast is lacking in so many areas with slow service and apart from the weekend very little choice and bland food. Pool bar is decent, but over priced. If I was coming back to Koh Samui, I would choose a different hotel for sure. Read less

Good resort to stay at, was still close to main street but quiet enough. Room was spacious and had great view. Staff very friendly and accomodating. Would be a great place for familes with young kids to stay at as you dont have to leave the resort if you didnt want to.

Chaba Cabana was so good! Great place to stay, staff were very welcoming and helpful, food was very good too. It was our wedding anniversary while we were here they gave us a delicious cake and decorated our room with flowers, it was a lovely surprise and very much appreciated. Many thanks for all staff.
