Chaweng Noi Pool Villa is specially designed for guests who are looking for affordable luxury accommodation in Thai-boutique style.
100-square-metre swimming pool plays a role as the highlight of the hotel.
You can walk up the road there are some restaurants and small shops there but the road next to hotel is very busy and with Thai traffic you may not feel comfortable walking there.
The lots on both sides of the hotel are not a pretty sight but otherwise you mainly see tropical forest which is not what you would get just a kilometer or two closer to the city.
They can also enjoy Samui nightlife without taking too much time to reach.
First we were given the ground floor rooms but changed to second floor later in order to have a proper balcony and less rattling air conditioning - the damage in the A/C unit was probably vandalism as its fan was missing some blades.
Staff at reception was helpful and we had no communication issues with them. Beds were hard and they say in the room info folder that you can ask for extra mattress but we slept fine without them.
At other times do not bother ordering taxi from reception just stand in the driveway and a bypassing taxi will pick you up in no time.
Cost of taxi to Chaweng was 200-300 baht for family.
