Area description
First Bungalow Beach Resort is the first bungalow resort in Koh Samui. The resort has been located on the best site of this mini-peninsula since the early 1970's. First Bungalow Beach Resort is also the only resort hotel placed on the connecting point of Chaweng Beach and Chaweng Noi Beach, where is accepted that it is the finest site of Koh Samui. As still run by the owner's family, it can be seen today with the unique blend of the same old simple, traditional and personalized hospitality of the owner, and all the modern amenities one can dream of in an exotic far-flung island hideout like Chaweng Beach.

Cheating practices!

The hotel is near the beach and is about 10 minutes from shopping and dining area at the main street. The location is not bad but it turns out not a good choice. The previous guests' comments here about this hotel are not trustworthy. We reserved a room in the first building. The room was small and the building was in an area remote from the rest of the resort but close to a construction site. We couldn't feel on holiday at all there. In fact we preferred staying home all together instead. So we decided to upgrade to a deluxe room which was by the swimming pool and we felt much better there. I do not recommend you to stay in the first building for that would ruin your holiday. The staffs were in general nice and polite, but the manager was quick-tempered and didn't smile at all. We arrived at the Christmas Eve and the hotel required us to join a compulsory Christmas Eve buffet. It was the most terrible buffet we had ever had AND it was costly at a price (THB 2000 per person) we could enjoy a much better Christmas dinner at a decent restaurant around the area. It made us feel cheated. Moreover, they showed in black and white a free airport shuttle service which didn't exist after all. They charged us THB 200 per person for hiring a van to take us to the airport the day we departed. It is definitely not an honest and responsible arrangement for its guests!

REVIEW

Their pictures were good on website but they put us in some horrible apartment rooms and the rooms were terrible and a little filthy - one had to go to the balcony through the toilet which looked into some other apartments. - We had to pay extra to change our room to First Bungalow - The booking was taken as first Bungalow but room given was Fiorst apartment - I guess thats how they con you on the cheap rate - Soryy poor standard poor poor hotel...

This hotel was a fantastic palce

This hotel was a fantastic palce to stay. The surrounding area is quiet and it is not far from the 'busy' part of the isalnd. The breakfast was extensive and the food was fresh. The hotel staff were very friendly and accomodating. Overall a lovely experience.

Familiäres Stradhotel

First Bungalow, Koh Samui Gebuchtes Zimmer: First Building für 11 Nächte inclusive Frühstück. Normal grosses Zimmer mit Kingsize Bett, AC, TV, Minibar, Wasserkocher etc., kein Zimmersafe! Interessante Raumaufteilung: Das Badezimmer ist auf dem Balkon gebaut, Wanne mit Dusche (links), WC mit Bideteinrichtung und Waschbecken (rechts), vom Schlafraum und einem immer noch vorhandenen kleinen Balkon mittels Glasschiebetüren abgetrennt. Reichhaltiges Frühstücksbuffet für jeden Geschmack. Rezeption nicht übermässig freundlich. Internationale Gästestruktur, überwiegend Russen, einige Deutsche, Nordländer und Briten. Sehr schöner Strand, oberer Bereich quarzsandähnlich, unterer Bereich (Nähe Wasserlinie) feiner Sand, leicht abfallen, ideal für Kinder! Badetuchservice nur bei der Rezeption (nicht am Strand). Sauberer Pool mit Kinderbecken. Am Strand negativ: Sonnenschirmservice mangelhaft. Gäste mussten die Schirme teils selber holen und „einpflanzen“. In der Nähe einige Restaurants. Chaweng Beach Road mit ihren Restaurants, Shoppingmöglichkeiten, Bars etc. zu Fuss oder mit einem Sammeltaxi erreichbar. Das „First Bungalow“ ist für Familien mit Kindern zu empfehlen.
