How to get the best possible hotel deals in Chaweng?
Book directly with the hotel – this cuts out middlemen, saving cash for both guests and hotels – and we take no commission.
We identify hotels that GUARANTEE, in writing, the best discounts for guests who book the hotel directly. See the guarantee list by the Koh Samui map, then contact hotels via the e-mail box on each hotel page.
WE also see DISCOUNT ROOM VOUCHERS – the very cheapest rooms on Thai beaches. But these are limited in number. See Top Deals on the Samui page or click to see all Thailand deals.

Chaweng North faces the calm, shallow water of a pretty lagoon

This northern stretch of Chaweng Beach is one of the prettiest, with wide soft sand and many big trees giving shade over the beach. The small offshore island creates a shallow lagoon in front, making this a good children's beach.
.
The beachfront accommodations here range from budget beach cottages to luxury 5-star spa resorts. Some of Chaweng's most interesting design hotels are found here, such as Dara Samui and Muang Samui Spa Resort. Others are set in lush tropical gardens, like Blue Lagoon Hotel and Iyara Beach Hotel. All good resorts here have spas with massage therapy and various other health treatments, while even the simple bungalows offer massage on the beach.
.
The budget OP Bungalows, one of the original hotels on Chaweng, still run by the founding Thai-Chinese family, has one of the top locations on Chaweng – right on a sandy point that breaks the beach into zones. This is wide and sandy, with huge shade trees which keep the restaurant cool. Again, this is a good beach playground for kids.
.
The road into OP marks the junction at which the famous Chaweng nightlife strip begins, and the one-way road. From here, all hotels to the south can only be accessed by driving south, a system that sometimes becomes a time-consuming burden.
.
The advantages of this northern part of Chaweng are walking proximity to most of the restaurants, bars and shopping. There is plenty of fun beach activity nearby, with romantic dining on the sand at night, and numerous beach bars.
