Akwa Guesthouse

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 19, 2007

AKWA only has four rooms, so best to play safe and book ahead.

The guesthouse is very smart with a funky decor.

Great food and drink. It is worth visiting AKWA just for something to eat even you one chooses not to stay there.

What really makes this place though are the staff. The owner, Tim, and his team are truly welcoming and understand customer service.

Compared to what else is available in this price range, AKWA is outstanding.

I stayed at AKWA During July 2006. After a hard and sweaty search for a good place to stay Tim and his staff welcomed us so friendly. I had an excellent room – albeit the stairs, (getting old!) I am sure are great for my health, yet everything was beautiful – very clean and welcoming. The Bathroom has been recently renovated and was modern, clean and bright. Lots of bright art around the place. I loved the idea of the DVD Library. The availability of the DVD Machine in every room was really such a treat in itself. The service was perfect, extremely friendly staff and the owner wraps it all up with his magic touch with some comedy. The interior décor is funky; the art is all bright and uplifting. The room I stayed in 202 was larger than any normal room I have had. It was also the best bed we have had during our 12 Months (So many feather pillows you did not know where to sleep) I think we had the biggest room!! In our Year away from home, not once were we welcomed as much as we were to this place on Cheweng. The Beach is across the road, and truly is beautiful, all was perfect except the sun, but the owner could not do any thing about that. We felt like a King and Queen Thank you to all the staff, you guys have made my holiday more special, Fon, Em, Nok, Bas are very special. New place, fresh people, good staff, great atmosphere, great service, and Ko Samui, Thailand what more could a person ask?

Unique Quality: DVD Player, Feather Quilt, VALUE FOR MONEY. Amazing Pizza, Service every day if not more. amazing Nic Naks all through the room! AKWA was such a great experience and such a wonderful place to stay.The staff took care of absolutely EVERYTHING, from helping change flight reservations to ordering some very picky New Yorkers wholemeal pizza crusts. We loved everything about this place – proximity to the beach, the fantastic décor, extraordinarily clean, and very comfortable.

Directions: Main Beach, shopping and party area! (opposite left of Poppies Resort)
