Guest Friendly Hotels Koh Samui

guest friendly hotels koh samui

The best guest friendly hotels in Koh Samui are located close to nightlife. It’s one of the most expensive places in Thailand with nice beaches but the nightlife is nothing like Pattaya or Phuket. Also, not all hotels are guest friendly.

There are two main areas in Koh Samui – Chaweng and Lamai. Both have many hotels and bars but Chaweng is larger and more developed and Lamai is smaller and more quiet. Chaweng is the best place to find many pretty girls and the only choice to party during the low season. Best party areas in Chaweng are soi Green Mango and soi Reggae with many beer bars and girls. There are also two go go bars – Dream girl with Thai girls and Galaxy with Russian girls. I think that the best part in Chaweng and Lamai are the massages with extras. See the updated info below.

Guest friendly hotels Koh Samui 2022 update

Some hotels and bars are still closed but many have reopened. Ark bar beach resort and the bar are temporarily closed but they have a new party place right next to them. It’s called Surf Up and has a great party atmosphere and fire shows at night.

Lamai Wanta beach resort is now The Hive and it’s still guest friendly. J4 hotel Samui is a guest friendly hotel, you can see the confirmation below. P & P Samui resort is permanently closed but their sister hotel O.P. bungalow is open.

Most beer bars on soi Reggae and soi Green Mango are open. All they have working girls but don’t expect young stunners. It’s nothing like Pattaya, Patong or Bangkok, so better find a holiday girl from there. Galaxy is closed and the other go go bar in Koh Samui Dream girl is open but no talents there.

Lamai also has beer bars and girls but it’s even worse than Chaweng. There are plenty of empty bars with few girls and no customers. However, there are cheaper accommodations and almost empty beaches to enjoy.

Koh Samui bar girl prices: The bar fine is up to 500 baht, 1000+ baht for short time (low season price) and 1500-2000 baht for the whole night. Lady drinks are less than 200 baht.

Koh Samui massages: The standard massage prices are 300-400 baht and up to 2000 for the girl, depending on her service and your negotiation skills. No more than 500 if it’s only a hj. At some places they ask for upfront payment. The rates are much higher at high-end massage parlors. The Japanese nuru massage place Ki-Mo-No is now Pannarai. The latest rates can be found on their web site.

Koh Samui freelancers: The best place to find freelancers  is the Green Mango club. Also, the internet works fine, there are some girls on Tinder and Thaifriendly. The rates start at 1000+ baht for short time.

Top guest friendly hotels Koh Samui – Chaweng Beach


1. Ark Bar Beach Resort *** $42

guest friendly hotels koh samui chaweng ark bar beach resort

The Ark bar beach resort is a guest friendly hotel right in the middle of everything. Right on the beach and close to the beer bars and girls. If you want to party it’s the best hotel in the area. The atmosphere is great,  the pool is nice. The food and drinks at the restaurant and the bar are excellent. I love the cocktails! The staff is really attentive. Very good rooms with tv, free wi-fi, aircon and safe. If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room away from the pool and beach area.

2. Chaweng Garden Beach Resort *** $56+

I stayed once at Chaweng garden beach resort and would stay there again. Excellent location in the centre of Chaweng. Close to the bars, restaurants and clubs, but far enough away from any noise. It is located right on the beach front with a nice lounge area, very clean and well maintained. Comfortable king size beds, decent renovated shower and toilet, good aircon, kettle with coffee and tea. Free wi-fi everywhere. The restaurant is nice but the service is a bit slow.

3. Anantara Lawana Koh Samui Resort ***** $187+

Amazing guest friendly high-end hotel in Koh Samui. The hotel is located far enough away from the busy chaweng beach in a quiet area, but close enough if you want the hustle and bustle. Ten minutes walk to nightlife. You can enjoy the breakfast, the pool and the private beach. The rooms are absolutely fantastic with huge balconies and baths, everything you need there. Book a room with private pool access. Excellent food and plenty of choices on the menus. The bar serves some amazing cocktails.

4. O.P.Bungalow ** $26+

The O.P. Bungalow is probably the best budget option for a guest friendly hotel in the area. It’s in a perfect location on the beach, walking distance to nightlife and the new shopping mall. Close to many bars but far away enough for a peaceful night sleep. The rooms are basic but clean with aircon, comfortable beds, tv, free wi-fi and hot water. Very friendly staff. Restaurant on the beach with very tasty food.

5. J4 Samui Hotel *** $39+

J4 has an unbeatable location as the party areas of Chaweng are right across the street.

Guest friendly policy: “We don’t charge the joiner if the number of guests is not over the room’s standard but please let us copy ID card or Passport for the security reason.”
