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.

What can I say, simple fantastic from start to finish. From the welcome at reception, to the pool staff and the cleaners. My boyfriend and I stayed at the Chaba cabana for 2 weeks in June, this was our first time visiting Thailand and simply won’t be our last. The people on reception were great in recommending places to visit, the cleaners in the room did a great job leaving us with clean towels and beach towels every day, the room was always spotless. The staff around the pool bar/breakfast bar genuinely couldnt have done more for you, they wanted to help with everything. Drinks are a little pricey around the bar, but happy hour is definitely worth taking full advantage of! Will definitely be returning to this fabulous place! Read less

Resort is ideally situated at north end of Chaweng beach, super staff friendly and helpful. Would stay again as very relaxed island style accommodation. Easy walk to town & 7/11 straight up hill along with great restaurants (Lecker Schmeker).

We have just returned from 12 days at this resort, and we had a fantastic time. We were so thrilled with the resort and the amazing, friendly staff members who just went over and above and nothing was too much trouble, one of the best family holidays we have had and Chaba Cabana was certainly a main part of that enjoyment. The pool and surrounds was always very clean and at the time when we were there always had lounges to sit on, happy hour was always fun with the outdoor pool table. Our kids just loved the staff and their friendly manner. Not to forget the amazing massage area. We just loved this place and will definitely be back as soon as we can... hopefully in one of the poolside suites!! I also want to mention the wonderful front desk / reception staff, particularly Patrick the afternoon manager who was so friendly and welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful on anything we asked... just an amazing place, thank you to all at Chaba Cabana Resort, and see you again soon.
