Nora Chaweng Hotel, Chaweng

Nora Chaweng Hotel, Chaweng

This is a very nice hotel, located almost straight where the one way system starts in Chaweng. It's located at the road side of Chaweng beach road, you only have to cross the road and walk down to the beach, just a minute or two away.

Nora Chaweng Hotel is named after a mystical dance. It's brand new, it opened it's doors less than a year ago and has a very pleasant, spacious feel to it with tastefully designed rooms.

All shopping and night life areas are within walking distance and the airport is within a 10 to 15 minutes from the hotel.

The 3 suites and 60 Deluxe rooms are tastefully designed, nice and have all the amenities that you expect and the hotels supports a swimming pool, a spa and a restaurant.

If looking for a nicely priced, medium range hotel in Chaweng, this may be a well suited choice.

Chaweng Cove Resotel, Chaweng

Chaweng Cove Resotel, Chaweng

Come August this year and my sister is to visit Samui once more. Since this is going to be a family affair with 3 children in the 10 to 13 year range, they needed a bit more of a budget place than they used to book during previous visits. Recently I went to have a look at the resort, with my sister, who was here on a very short break visit and it got the thumbs up from both us.
My sister was back in July 2010 and stayed once more at this resort, it suited them just fine for location and also for price.

At the reception they were very accommodating by showing us the various rooms and allowed us to have a look around. Above is the main entrance, just south of Centara in Chaweng. Just outside the busy hustle and bustle of Chaweng but still near enough to be able to walk to Chaweng 'downtown'.

The pool looks spacious and has three different basins and is located near the beach as well. It looks very convenient.

My sister booked two rooms with balcony and this is how they look like, including all you need, a TV, fridge, bathroom/toilet etc.
Chaweng Cove Resotel offers something for everyone and it even has newly built air-conditioned rooms, villas, and bungalows for all these people to enjoy. Amenities at this resort include a swimming pool, available massage services, beach side dining and wireless Internet access.
There are a total 101 rooms varying in size and price.

The layout of the resort was very nice and a feature that catches the eye is this shaded hall way between the reception and the resort. A very nice touch.

Although build in a compact way, it's still comfy to walk around and looks spacious enough to enjoy.
Our impression was overall positive and my sister is looking forward to stay here.

Her final verdict after having stayed for almost two weeks here is that it's value for money and they would stay here again.
