              beautiful hotel, lovely decor”

              pool, lovely room, clean, bright, good spot

              Akyra Chura is a great new resort - good position in chaweng far enough from all the noise but a quick tuk tuk ride to all the action however the price of these short rides seems to have increased over the years some now charge baht to drive 1km whilst you get another charging 50 baht. The decor is new and rooms nice, simple and fresh- no outdated thai influences. There are lots of stairs leading into the resort so not suitible for people with mobility issues. The breakfast is good and staff lovely. Good value for money and the best resort we have stayed in whilst in Chaweng (have also stayed at Dara Samui and Baan Samui). 7/11, laundry, pharmacy and scooter hire are all just across the road which is handy. I would definently stay at Akyra again. Really enjoyed

              Nice hotel with great staff”


              Stayed at this hotel as I wanted to be in Chaweng beach before leaving Ko Samui. I did not want the hotel to be right in the middle of Chaweng as the place is very noisy. Akyra Samui fitted the bill like a "T" It is just a kilometer from Chaweng but had access to the beach, and beach side bar, restaurant. The checkin took longer than expected but the staff attended me with attention and gave me room closer to the beach. The beach is @100 meters from the room but that is ok. The room was spacious, and bathroom even more spacious. Loved the bathroom with such a spaciousness. The breakfast spread was also quiet good, except the fact that for vegetarians it is not much of a choice other than bread toast and coffee. Had a massage at their spa and it was awesome. Overall I would rate the hotel a good place to stay. A little expensive compared to other Samui hotels but it is ok.

              Chura Samui is a beautiful resort! Quiet side of Chaweng, but not too far from the walking street. We had a room with the Seaview. Plenty of room with separate living and bathroom. Very spacious. Our room was a few steps away from the swimming pool and the beach which was very nice to wake up to every morning. All staff were friendly and made our stay a very comfortable one. And breakfast was just right! With hot and cold options, sweet and savoury and the coffee was not bad either! Definitely recommend and will be returning!

              Chura Samui review ”

              We just had a lovely 5 night stay at Chura Samui. The hotel and rooms were absolutely great, excellent breakfast (great coffee), very clean rooms, beautiful and large bathroom and beautiful well maintained gardens. The beach is narrow perhaps due to monsoon season but they make up for it with a great pool area. All staff is very kind and helpfull. The bar prices are relatively high compared to surrounding establishments. The plus side is that they don't mind if you drink or eat from elsewhere (anywhere in or near the resort). All and all great stay. Would definitely recommend.

              pool and beach

              the akyra chura samui is located on chaweng beach road but away from the main hustle and bustle of the main chaweng beach road area. though located slightly away, it is still walking distance (10 minutes) to the main area. ideally located (we dont get the crowd and noise) from night activities and yet its close enough. the pool and beach would be the best feature for us, the staff are always smilling and on call at any time of the day. reception staff also recommended good restaurants. one was spirit hosue serving authentic thai cuisine and the other being prego (italian). spirit house has a courtesy pick up and its only a 10 minute drive away. prego is 5 moinutes walk away from the hotel. all in all, we had a good relaxing trip. will definitely go back, this time we may opt for a bigger room.

Huge plus for us! The breakfast was good and offered a large variety to chose from. The hotel is right on the beach and it is very easy to walk to many types of stores. Seph, the manger of the hotel was very hospitlable and gave us great recommendations on where to eat and have fun! Make sure you get a massage from Pink and Thong on the beach!

              Great hotel, great value”

              Only have good things to say about the Chura. I stayed both up here at the north end of Chaweng and in the centre; even as a solo traveler, I much preferred here - calmer, prettier beach, great pool, modern rooms, friendly staff and less overall commotion than staying further south - while not being too far away from the centre. Only a couple of complaints - the beachside bar/restaurant is overpriced - you're much better off walking down the beach 2 minutes to the Your Place beach bar/restaurant or 10 minutes to OP Bungalow. Also, I had a problem with the air conditioning in the room that the hotel seemed to think was not a problem, despite twice raising it. No offer to change rooms. I just dealt with it but was the only blemish on a nice stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful, helped me arrange a transfer to the pier at a reasonable rate. Would gladly stay here again.

              New designer hotel at a reasonable price”

              Nice architecture, good location

              The Akyra is a quite stylish, well-managed hotel on the Northern end of Chaweng beach. Rooms are not very big - the term 'Suite' is a bit deceiving here as it is nothing more than a normal room. But again: The architecture and furniture are nice, and the bathroom at least is quite spacious. The pool area and bar are nice places to lounge for a sundowner. The pricing is very reasonable for Koh Samui standards. On the downside this is not the nicest part of Chaweng beach - if you are looking for really clean, white sand you better venture more to the middle of the beach (around the Central Samui Resort).

              I had a fantastic time at the Akyra. Wonderful location on Chaweng Beach - close to all the action, but removed just enough from the craziness of Samui nightlife that it remains peaceful and quiet throughout the night. Beautiful pool, right on the beach. Room was very large, and very nice. Restocking the room's refrigerator with complimentary beers and beverages each morning was a wonderful touch. The hotel restaurant was very good - I enjoyed having breakfast there each morning. Would absolutely recommend the Akyra to anyone.

              The best thing about Akyra is the spacious room, the cleanliness and the perfect location on the beach

              Our stay at Akyra was perfect. Even though we've faced some transportation problem but the Hotel Manager handle it pretty well and who will believe that 10 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Chaweng we'll find a peaceful private hotel, some of my friends who saw the picture of Akyra didn't believe that we took the trip in high-season as we actually did. It was a great experience for our 2nd anniversary and we'll surely stay in Akyra if we go back to Samui again!!!

Our room had a great bathroom. The resort pool is an infinity pool overlooking Chaweng beach. Breakfast was good. The resort is smaller than most so feels a lot more intimate, perfect for couples. There were no large groups staying at the resort.
