The chase boat crew first had to unload all this bamboo and rubbish. Mostly fish-traps that had been cleared from the path of the survey boat. Another lovely Asian chase boat. The only woman got the captain's cabin...great you say...the toilet was out of order and the cold shower had no shower head! Actually this was a relatively nice chase boat …
In Hong Kong, the hotel messed up our booking for transport to the airport, so they provided a limo...nice! Arrived in Koh Samui to the lovely Impiana Resort, and were soon sitting on the beach with a beer at the restaurant right next door. There was an annoying amount of beach sellers offering lucky lanterns, but there were plenty of other people …
We didn't have time to do much this morning, but headed to the airport at 12pm to catch our 2.30pm flight to Surat, which is down in the south.
When we got there an hour later, we headed straight for a transfer desk and bought tickets to Koh Samui (coach and ferry included). Eventually at 7.30pm we ended up in Koh Samui on the infamous Chaweng beach strip, with no hotel and no map. It was a YOLO - ...

I really enjoyed my hostel in Sural Thani and the local night markets etc. it's a nice feel to it and I'm glad the staff at the hotel have no problem with me leaving my bike for a couple of days. I arranged to leave for Koh Samui usng the local bus to the ferry port, buying both bus and ferry ticket at the same time and set off first thing in the morning so I would arrive at Chaweng ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Impiana Samui Resort & Spa Chaweng Noi Beach
My partner and i were looking for a luxury hotel without the huge price tag and that's what we got at The Impiana Resort! We intended to stay here for one week and then move to another island, however we loved it so much we didn't want to leave and whilst there booked to stay on here for the second week. For the first 7 nights we booked to stay in a Deluxe Room, which was gorgeous, a massive bed, lounge area, good size bathroom and a nice balcony. For our second week we downgraded to a standard and although it was still a lovely stay it was a lot smaller. I would recommend for anyone wanting to stay here to pay the little bit extra for a Deluxe! On arrival we were greeted with a cool drink and given a complimentary foot massage - it was heaven and the ladies working in their spa were so sweet, polite and very interesting to speak with. Every time we needed anything a member of staff was there for us. We didn't use the pool that much as you have the beach on your doorstep but it was beautiful and at perfect temperature. The beach is gorgeous, be aware you will get pestered every 5mins by sellers but you will get that everywhere on Ko Samui. You have a massage hut right there where my partner and i had a wonderful massage on the beach by the lovely ladies working there and i also treated myself to a manicure (which wasn't very good but what do you want for a couple of quid!). The only downside, which is no fault to the hotel, was the restaurant, the food & service was excellent but it seemed not many people ate there so we tended to eat out too. The 2 nights we did eat there though they had wonderful shows on and after dinner you could head to the beach to light a lantern and make a wish, the hotel staff come down with you and explain what it is all about - very romantic for you and your partner (i thought it was anyway!). We did a few tours which we booked through the hotel - Elephant Treking and A trip to another island it was all very easy to book and the staff helped in recommending where to go and what to see! Overall i thought this was a superb hotel and def worth a stay. I would def stay there again.
Impiana, we'll be back!
The hotel, the staff , the beach, the spa, the food, etc, etc, was excellent!
Having only been home from this beautiful place for a few days, we really can appreciate what a wonderful
vacation we had there.
Everyone at the Impiana always has a smile on their face and are so helpful and considerate.
We loved our room, a deluxe room on the second floor with a beauiful view at a really good price. And from a woman's standpoint, the spa and the sweet ladies there were fantastic and what a deal!
The hotel is a about a mile away from Chaweng Beach which sort of remind us Californians of Tijuana and that is not a complement.. Spent 2 hours at Chaweng and were happy to go back to "our" nice little hotel.
Went here for my honeymoon, Got upgraded to one of thier cotages. The welcome was great as they had our bed filled with rose petals, and a basket of fruit. I mean we where on the beach!!
Another reason why I loved it, was that it was out of the city, cost about 100 Baht to with a taxi to get to city, so no loud noise and no vans riding past with speakers blaring "Tonight, tonight, get your kick boxing tickets for the champion of the champion kick-boxing fight, tonight tonight!!!" Those vans drove me crazy when I went to the city.
Okay, one qualification -- if you're looking for nightlife, don't stay here. I mean, if you want to stumble back from the bars at night, stay in town. Otherwise, you'll love this place. During the day, nothing but beautiful beach and sun. At night, the restaurants next door (Beach Love) as well as the hotel restaurant are more than adequate.
I have just returned from one of the best holidays I have ever enjoyed consisting of five nights at The Grand China Princess Hotel in Bangkok and ten nights at the Impiana in Koh Samui. We chose Thailand as my elder son now lives in Tasmania with my daughter-in-law and 18 month old granddaughter. The location was about half way to travel for all of us. I had my wife and three others of my children with me and the arrangements were perfect.
Just came back from a week's holiday staying at this hotel. So glad we went with this particular hotel as it just made our stay in Koh Samui all that much better. I would highly recommend this particular hotel for several reasons. Firstly is that is situated on Chaweng Noi which meant the hotel pretty much had a beach to itself - & a beautiful one at that! It also meant that we were staying away from the busy town centre (which may I add was only a short 3-5 min taxi ride away). So it was peaceful & quiet. The beach is beautiful, sea very lovely. You can spend all day on the beach loungers, getting a massage on the beach. Or town is very close to keep you busy with all the other great things to do in Koh Samui, like shop! We stayed in probably the cheapest room, but it was nice & adequate, afterall you only sleep in your room! Next to the resort/hotel are several restaurants along the beach, so we ate there most nights taking turns amongst them. Great food & so cheap (much better than town). The staff are extra friendly, as all Thai people tend to be. Only ate at the hotel for breakfasts which were good. Pool is small but very lovely. The hotel staff will organise day trips for you or a jeep to hire for a day or so. One last thing to mention is the beach bar - happy hour from 4 till 7p,. "Buy one free one" as they say. This was a great spot to meet other couples if you want to & chat to alot of the guests. So all in all - it was excellent !
Just returned from thsi hotel and thought that it was great. Stayed in room 509 ( a deluxe room) and it was lovely, very big and has a great view of the beach.
Staff all very helpful and polite. Lovely food served at the hotel although didn't seem like a lot of people ate there, only saw lots of people at breakfast time and sunbathing on the loungers during the day.
All in all i would go back to this hotel and recommend it to others.
The best room at impiana
i have to recommend(highly) room 510, the beachfront suite at impiana-we spent six nights in heaven because of this paticular room. the swimming pool is disappointing- photos on net are deceptive but the sea is two steps from the room-this makes up for anything else the hotel lacks. beach lovers will thank me for this gem- it is awesome! note: only this room- the rest are not worth a mention.
Booked at the last minute, didn't really get the chance to do much research, but I can agree with the other, very in depth review.
I have just come back from my honeymoon on Koh Samui staying at the Impiana resort Samui. To save you the time of reading the entire review the hotel is definatly worth it, food good, beach good, room average or below and staff very nice.
