Select your room


Muang Kulaypan is a 42 room chick boutique resort and perfectly located on the northern part of Chaweng Beach. Only 10 minutes slow walk to the main shopping & entertainment area but yet peaceful and silent to make you forget the outside world. The hotel is protected from the buzzling Chaweng by huge walls and inside visitor finds an impressive garden with age-old coconut trees slowly swaying from side to side. At Muang Kulaypan, past is present with ancient traditions and spirits together with modern day facilities. Already the main stairs leading to the upper floor reveal mirrors chasing away the bad spirits, lotus, a holy flower, attracting the good one and twin phalluses, protector against the mischievous Goddess of the sea. Even each room has individual poem from the past, delicately chosen for each room. Uniquely designed rooms are located in two floors in a spacious U-shape and close the exquisitely landscaped garden and spectacular black-tiled swimming pool to the middle. 100 meters beach line with stunning view to the horizon and nearby island completes your experience. All rooms are air-conditioned and have satellite TV, direct dial telephone, hot shower, hairdryer, safety deposit box and mini bar. Each room has also either balcony or terrace.

Great hotel

Would recommend Fri, Dec 20, 2013
This has a feel of a Thai hotel with great location. On the beach, minutes from city center walking distance. Beautiful property with lovely grounds. Staff was helpful, friendly. Very romantic and there were children although I would probably go someplace that had things for children to do. No playground. Breakfast was lovely. Served on the beach in either the restaurant or in the unique huts they have on the beach. Several breakfast choices. Could use some additional seating in the common grounds.

Money saver

Shopping is better in Bangkok but you can get some deals here - but you have to be an excellent haggler. Whatever number they give you offer 25% so if they say 1000 offer 250. You have to be very strong because they will say they are losing money etc. Walk away - you will see the same items in all the other stores. Learn the prices of the items you like - how far down will they go before buying. Same for cabs. They seem so inexpensive to us but for there it is very expensive. A cab ride to the airport won't cost more than $6 yet they will try to get $20 from you and you'll think it sounds cheap.

Ripped off!

Would not recommend Sun, Apr 14, 2013
My fiend and I chose this hotel because of the "amenities." They say there is "Complimentary" airport/hotel transportation but this is not true. Even after showing them the email where they wrote to use saying that there would be there wasn't. Then later I fell over a random tree stump in the middle of the walkway and started bleeding. Some staff was helpful. The bartender who saw me fall and bleed ended up trying to upsell me on the water to fix my wound. Literally, I looked at the price after I bought it and he charged me more. I knew something was off when he smiled like a creeper when I was buying it but since I was bleeding I didn't have time to haggle.

good location

Would recommend Wed, Mar 6, 2013
I recommend this hotel because it has good location and it is clean, the terrace is very beautiful. The design is modern and comfortable, it is not new but worth it. Downtown Chaweng is near about 5 min to walk. The hotel beach is no big However the swimming pool is very cool. The breakfast is no voluminous but is particularly because is served on the beach in wooden huts. Fabio Italy Florence
