Honeymoon hotels (Part 3)
NORTH AND SOUTH CHAWENG
- I am giving a miss to a mid-part of Chaweng as I don't really think it's a suitable place for honeymoon...good for stag/hen party though :-)
Karma resort (North Chaweng)
Luxury resort with a private beach ( not great for swimming though because of the rocks). The villas are stunning, beautifully equipped with a pool and jacuzzi, very private, you will not notice other guests at all, except from when you are eating in restaurants, this place is great for a perfect honemoon..the views are hard to beat and everything there has been done to make your stay a total pleasure. The location is perfect, away from busy Chaweng, yet only 5 mins away by car.
KC Resort & Over Water Villas (North Chaweng)
KC Resort and Over Water Villas is a very unusual unique place perched on a hilltop at the Northern end of Chaweng Beach and have stunning views over Koh Matlang and Chaweng Bay.
A great combination of a chic, modern hotel and private Over Water Pool Villas, supplemented by some of the islands most outstanding cool and happenning restaurants and bars where you can listen so some great singers, or have Tapas and Vino evening, or enjoy timeless jazz while sipping a delicious cocktail, the list is endless...
Anantara Lawana (North Chaweng)
The new addition to Anantara group of hotels, resort itself is absolutely beautiful and very peaceful, the staff is friendly and helpful.
The pool by the beach is stunning. Restaurants prices are expensive, but the food and "happy hour" drinks from the pool bar are good value. The beach in front of the Lawana isn't as nice as the main Chaweng beach, but it is still good for a swim.
Buri Rasa Village (South Chaweng)
This wonderful small boutique hotel in south Chaweng comprises a number of two-story villas set in gardens that lead down to the beach. There are different types of rooms, but they are all really beautiful, comfortable, furnished in Thai style, kept in immaculate condition and private.
The staff there are fantastic, the restaurants serves great food, and the beach outside is one of the best on Samui.
Samui Paradise Chaweng (south Chaweng)
Samui Paradise is a very beautiful resort, perfectly located at the southern end of Chaweng beach which is the quiest and nicest stretch of beach. The resort has 43 private villas set in a beautiful garden decorated in Thai style. If you want to walk to the center of Chaweng, it will only take 10-15 minutes. Hotel's Spa is great and highly recommended, although not so cheap.
Unfortunately I don't know any simple hotels in the whole Chaweng which I would have personally chosen as my perfect honeymoon destination.....
