Oyster Hotel Review

Avani+ Samui Resort


An upscale boutique resort with chic interiors, a peaceful beachfront location, and quality facilities

Sunset Coast Samui is a modern boutique resort featuring excellent leisure facilities and plenty of indoor and outdoor common areas where guests can relax. The biggest draw is the peaceful and scenic location, set in a secluded bay with a semi-private white-sand beach. The hotel features chic appointments throughout and has a stylish contemporary look. A large open-plan space houses the restaurant, lobby, and lounge -- all of which features chic elegant interiors such as marble floors, wood-clad ceilings, whitewashed accents, and comfy upholstered furniture. The resort is mostly popular with couples looking for a quiet romantic retreat, though it's also often frequented by families and solo travelers.

Located in a scenic, but isolated, area on Samui's southern coast, far from Chaweng's nightlife

The hotel is set along the peaceful Thaling Ngam Beach, a quiet area on the southern tip of Samui, surrounded by coconut farms and sleepy fishing villages. The area offers plenty to do for nature lovers within a 30-minute transfer of the hotel, such as the pristine Koh Taen and Koh Madsum Islands, plus Na Mueang 1 and 2 waterfalls. However, there's limited dining options and little to no nightlife nearby. Lamai Beach is located a 30-minute drive from the hotel and the area features a decent selection of local bars, restaurants, and shops. Chaweng is a better bet for nightlife, with plenty of nightclubs, beach clubs, cabaret shows, and bars on offer. Chaweng also features an abundance of dining and shopping choices. Lomprayah catamaran speedboats connecting to Koh Phangan, Koh Tao, and Surat Thani (mainland) depart from the Maenam Pier, located a 40-minute drive away. Lomprayah has a reputation as being the most reliable and speediest transfer option, but it's priced higher than slower alternatives. Samui International Airport takes about an hour to reach from the hotel.
