I stayed here for four weeks while I was completing a TEFL course. What an amazing place. Lovely spacious apartment, clean with a beautiful balcony overlooking the mountains. Great pool, nice little restaurant with lovely freshly prepared food and the wifi worked really well. But the most amazing thing about this place is the staff. I really cannot say enough...

Lots of eateries close by, but there is also a restaurant here as well, so if you don't want to go out, right there by...

This place is excellent particularly for longer term residents. I'm half way through a 4 week stay and have a basic but clean and thoroughly acceptable apartment - 1 of about 50 I would say - which is serviced twice a week. Friendly staff who organised my scooter hire (cheap) and will organise the laundry. The swimming pool is great...

I spent 3 weeks here and it was a more than comfortable, semi-luxurious stay in Chaweng. Had an amazing experience here completing my TEFL training course. The place is quite empty and not too far from the beach. The pool area and bar/restaurant offers both Thai and Western food. Ari who runs the desk is lovely. Wifi wasn't great but...
