Chaweng Garden Beach Resort

Our rating:
3.5 stars, based on 1 expert review

Owned by an islander family that looks down over their property from a huge Thai-style villa at the centre, Chaweng Garden Beach is a large and long-running resort that adds some class to Central Chaweng.

The cheapest standard rooms are set in long two-storey concrete buildings that face one another across courtyards with broad palms for a bit of privacy. They’re spacious and comfortable, with modern bathrooms, all expected amenities (TV, minibar, safe) and lights placed behind beds that create a soft glow on the light-green walls, which is welcome considering that minimal natural light shines inside due to the placement of the buildings. All rooms come with furnished terraces. Set closer to the beach, freestanding villas bag you plush sofas on polished wood floors, stained glass windows, red lanterns, bathtubs, ceramic basin sinks and plunge pools in the best rooms, but you do pay a premium for these.

Located within easy walking distance of a dizzying strip of bars, restaurants and markets, the resort also boasts a long stretch of beachfront land beyond some impressive banyan trees and an equally impressive dark-mosaic tiled infinity pool. This is where you’ll find the seafood restaurant, wine and cocktail bar, massage area and even a little nail salon. Lots of families were staying when we passed through and the atmosphere, though not loud and party-oriented like Ark Bar Resort, had more energy than more subdued upscale options like Poppies and Banana Fan Sea.

If you’re not averse to shelling out at least 10,000 baht a night, The Library is a swankier resort located nearby. Rates at Chaweng Garden fluctuate often; do poke around online to find the deals.
