"The hotel grounds are very large. Our bungalow was high up on the hill and it was quite a trek to the beach. We did not mind this as we had just spent a couple of days on Koh Tao where the bungalow was right on the beach. The water is much nicer (more clear) in Koh Tao so we were fine with spending less money at our hotel in Koh Samui even if it meant we were further from the water. The pools are very nice at this hotel. We spent several hours at the pool overlooking the beach and Gulf. We did swim in the pool but we did not swin in the Gulf. Breakfast was very nice. If you want to go into town where the action is you will need to take a shuttle or taxi. We were happy to stay away from the crowds but if you like to be at the center of things you may want a hotel closer to town. If you like to hang out at a nice pool and look at beautiful scenery without the crowds this is a good hotel. We were happy that we spent two days in Koh Tao and two days in Koh Samui as the vibes are very different (Koh Tao is better if you love nature and don't mind rustic). "

They had drivers who would take you anywhere, they have a free shuttle service to the city, a paradise in a gorgeous place in the world. Wonderful for romantic getaways. Would go back again in a heartbeat."

"this hotel was much better than the previous hotel we stayed at in koh samui the chaweng beachcomber (which virtually ruined our vacation) and was half the price! it's brand new and very nicely designed. the room had a very comfortable bed (the beds in thailand were all very hard - even at the expensive resort we stayed at - these were super-soft with really soft pillows as well), with clean showers that had excellent water pressure. i would definitely have preferred to stay at this hotel the previous weekend - would have paid less and enjoyed the stay more. while it's located on the other side of chaweng road - so it's not on the beach - i'd definitely have forgone the convenience of being located on the beach for a more comfortable and cleaner place. the staff was very accommodating - and allowed a very late checkout as we flew back that evening.

"Siamo stati molto bene in questo resort. È localizzato in una zona tipica thailandese e non affollata e turistica. Ottima posizione che permette di arrivare in 20/30 min a qualsiasi punto d'interesse dell'isola. Molta comoda anche la scorciatoia per arrivare alla silver beach. Siamo rimasti stupiti della pulizia del bungalow, incredibile! E comunque di tutto il resort. Un super like va anche al letto, molto molto comodo. We appreciate our stay in this resort. It's located in a real thailand side.. not crowded by tourist. The position is perfect to move around koh samui. And to return in the night in a piece of paradise. There is also a good shortcut to reach beaches like silver beach e lamui. In 20/30 of scooter is possible to move in the most famous point of the island. Another point is the cleaning of the boungalow, amazing!!! And super like for the bed, very very comfortable. "

"I booked an Economy room but the hotel staff was so nice to upgrade it to a Standard room which has window at no extra cost. Hotel is a short walking distance to Chaweng Beach, Chaweng Walking Street and there's plenty of dining choices around the area that suits all types of budget. For the budget traveller, you can walk to Ninja Crepes which serves tasty local food at a reasonable price. Hotel was quiet and room was clean with comfortable bed. Hotel staff were very friendly and there was one occasion that I had left my point-and-shoot camera at a travel tour shop and the hotel receptionist was very kind to let me know so I can go back to the shop and get it. Breakfast is quite standard but I love that they served fruits like mangosteen and rambutan. Overall I was very pleased with my stay in Nantra Chaweng Hotel. I ended up extending for another 3 nights. I will not hesitate staying here again if I get the chance to visit Koh Samui again in the future. "

"For my opinion- it’s the best hotel in Koh Samui. Staff were very nice. Location super central. The vouchers’s idea was very nice. Liked to chill on the pool-floor. Recommend to ask a room on a high floor because the hotel stands in a shopping mall and the lowest rooms are close to the parking plot. Everything was great and for sure will be back to COSI again on my next travel. "
