If like me you need to stay one night in Samui in order to catch an early flight out in the morning, a good choice for accomodation is the Samui Mermaid Resort. Rooms range from 500-1000 baht (at least when I was there). They are on both sides of the road leading into Big Buddha Beach, about 5 mins. from the Samui Airport. Get a room on the beach side if you can, they are nicer. All amenities including 2 pools and a beachside restaurant (food was average). 7-11 and many other food shops about a ten minute walk west on the road. Free shuttle to the airport. Staff is a little surly but who cares.
A clean and value for money resort, located in a quieter part of the Island with a nice mix of local residents, ex-pats and holiday makers. It is on the airport flight path, which did not bother me, but may bother others.
About a 20 minute taxi or songteaw ride to the busier town of Chaweng.
Unique Quality: Nice pool on the inland side of the resort with a very relaxing covered bar area.
Directions: On the beach, near the airport.
i'm travelling to thailand and will be in samui on the 28th december for 4 days and then on 1st january go to koh phangan for 3 days! i'm really struggling to find available accommodation as it is new year and also full moon party! i've checked lots of internet searches and still can't find accommodation for under 1500baht on chaweng beach and haad rin. I would be grateful if anyone can help me, time is ticking away and i'll prob have to end up sleeping on the beach! thanking you in advance happy travellers xx
also just wondered whether anybody had any telephone numbers of places to stay on chaweng beach or haad rin that are not advertised on the internet. many thanks x
