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 developped 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 girls 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.

Top guest friendly hotels Koh Samui – Chaweng Beach
1. Ark Bar Beach Resort *** $42
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, restarurants 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 kingsize beds, decent renovated shower and toilet, good aircon, kettle with coffe 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 maybe 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.
