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.

We recently stayed at this resort for 4 nights. It is in a perfect location on the beach where there are many lovely restaurants and bars. I stayed here on my birthday and the staff had taken note from my passport and wished me a happy birthday when I came down in the morning which was very impressive.

I stayed here on my birthday and the staff had taken note from my passport and wished me a happy birthday when I came down in the morning which was very impressive. I also got back to the room to find a birthday cake on the side which was also lovely. The staff were all very helpful - would definitely stay here again! Read less

This is our 4th visit to beautiful Koh Samuis Chaba Cabana Beach Resort. We could see by looking at their website that they had upgraded some of the resort and to be honest the last time we were there we thought this should happen. Everything new gets old eventually. This time when we arrived we were told the "deluxe building" area was being remodeled and we were given a room in the main hotel. We honestly didn't mind at all as the rooms are very similar anyway. They offer guests a small rebate for this inconvenience. Our room had an ocean view so we thought it was lovely. We were shown the display model of the new rooms and when finished will look stunning! The staff at Chaba are wonderful. I've never met a Thai person who wasn't completely gracious and charming. Ting,the manager was so helpful and down near the pool area and beach Jam (Jampan) was always there to make us feel welcome and special. The beautiful young girl who greeted us every morning for breakfast made us feel like royalty. As it was our 10th Wedding Anniversary the staff surprised us with a beautiful cake and message on our bed. It was so thoughtful. I always leave this place with a heavy sad heart because I know I will miss these people. This resort is close to everything on the island and is reasonably priced. We will definitely be returning. It was a perfect holiday. Read less

We stayed here for 11 nights. Great friendly resort in a perfect location for us. It is at the top north end of the beach and is very chilled. You can easily walk along the beach to a number of restaurants and bars. You can also easily catch a taxi into Chaweng, fisherman’s village for food, markets, sightseeing etc All areas were lovely, the pool, restaurant and bar overlook the amazing beach and sea with its fantastic lagoons. The staff were great, friendly and loved a bit of fun with the kids which made it really great for them. Jam (Barman) was great and even helped my son when we played cards! We had an adjoining room with our kids (12,14) which was great. Typical beach resort room, not super luxurious but really nice and just what was required after being in Bangkok for a few days. Breakfast was great, overlooking the beach with a wide range of food. I even got a happy birthday sung at breakfast with no prompting from my wife which was a really nice touch. Nice cocktails in the bar. Kids loved the milkshakes and smoothies. Free pool to play. Small gym with a selection of weights and a running machine and bike - but hey, your on holiday!! There is a free kayak on site that you can borrow which is thoroughly recommended. The massages on site were also amazing! Read less

This is a lovely place to stay, colourful, friendly, welcoming and kept very clean. Yes the bathrooms could do with a bit of modernisation but remember this is not a faceless luxury hotel. There are plenty of those you can stay at but for the price this is hard to beat. Our room was kept immaculately clean without any sense of intrusion. The breakfast was plentiful, tasty and varied. The restaurant was quiet when we passed in the evenings, we chose to walk along the beach into town to eat in lots of the various places on offer. The location of this hotel is perfect, sitting at the quiet end of the long strip of beach. You are not disturbed by noise at night but close enough for a lovely stroll along the beach to join the livelier areas if you wish. The pool is clean and there were always sunbeds available. There are also a few sunbeds on the beach which is where we spent most of our time. The hairdryer in the room is not very powerful but as I only have short hair this was no problem. All the hotel staff were friendly and helpful and always have a smile and a genuine warm greeting. Do treat yourself to a massage whilst you are there, the ladies are amazing. I had a coconut oil massage and my husband went for the deep Thai massage, we loved it! I highly recommend this hotel, it was a perfect place for us to stay during our trip to this beautiful Island.
