The Lowdown

Just a stone’s throw from Koh Samui’s dining and nightlife hotspot, with daily shuttles to Chawang’s shores, this beachfront property is the perfect base for exploring the island. As a guest, you can take trips to smaller islands, such as Koh Phangan, known for its Full Moon parties, or enjoy a snorkeling excursion while island hopping. Head inland to trek up waterfalls or visit stunning temples and colorful markets and glimpse the marvelous Thai culture.
All tours can be arranged with the resort’s front desk. But if you prefer to simply unwind and enjoy the resort facilities, you can’t go wrong with that option, either. Start at the oceanfront infinity pool, and savor the breathtaking view of endless sea, dotted with jet skis, from the cool waters. Or, visit the spa, for a soothing massage or facial, before retreating to the comfort of your spacious suite or villa. The ultimate island paradise, The Sarann promises a healthy balance of fun and relaxation, perfect for having your Thai beach getaway your way.

Suites and villas

Suites and villas here are expansive, each with its own outdoor Jacuzzi or private infinity pool. They offer a relaxed atmosphere and design, with warm wood and walls tiled with natural stone, all kept cool with a ceiling fan and air conditioning. Each comes with a sheltered patio and spacious bathrooms with lovely, large tubs and separate rain showers.Jacuzzi suites feature a large bedroom and outdoor patio apiece, while Jacuzzi villas are the same size, but detached, with a slatted ceiling and garden views. In the Sea Front Pool villa, you get unobstructed ocean views, dining and sunning decks, a private lawn and a separate living room.


Wild Ginger Restaurant offers a comprehensive mix of both Thai and Western dishes to suit your palate. For a special evening, a private chef for dining in your villa can be arranged, as well.


Warm up your muscles with a session in the resort’s fully equipped fitness center. For something less strenuous, step into the Sarann Spa – try the full-body Thai massage, or one of the spa’s traditional treatments.


The hotel is close to the island’s dining and nightlife area. Transportation can be arranged to various landmarks – or, simply take a tuk tuk to the nearby nightlife area: a whole street full of pubs and street-food spots.

Nice Hotel at Chaweng Beach
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stayed at the hotel for 4 days. Hotel room and resort were very clean. You can see that the resort is not brand new but still functional, nicely decorated and clean.
Staff was very friendly and always supportive. Breakfast had a lot of options available and offered slightly different options each day.
As the hotel is a bit outside of Chaweng city its worth
to rent a scooter as taxis to the city are quite pricy (approx. 300bhat). Hotel offers a shuttle to the city twice a day (free of charge)
Would recommend the hotel and will be back for sure when staying at Koh Samui again.

Koh Samui Holiday

My wife and I stayed at The Sarann from the 2nd of April for 10 days.We stayed in a private pool villa. The rooms were large but the fact they are 2 separate rooms was a little annoying. The private pool was amazing and clean and made our holiday... A big negative was that they have extremely poor TV coverage and virtually unwatchable. I know you dont holiday to watch TV but after a long day it would be nice to sit and relax. Rooms are clean and staf friendly... The restaurant meals are ok but the restaurant staff were fantastic especially the restaurant manager Wat who could not have been more helpful a lovely man

Nice resort on the quiet side of chaweng

My husband and I have just left this resort.
Had 4 nights here and really did have a good time.
Extremely friendly staff who really do try their very best- despite the language barrier.
On the quiet side of the bay.
Breakfast was good except that we had the exact same every day.
The wifi is excellent.
Views amazing.
We arrived early and didnt have to wait for our room which was really nice after a long flight.
We used the lady at the tour desk to organize us a taxi which was very reliable.also hired a scooter from her for 350 baht for 24 hours.
The spa very expensive - use the ladies on the beach. We paid 400 baht for a thai oil massage which was really good.
The drinks are expensive- although they do have happy hour everyday between 1 and 5.the little shop across the road sells beers, water and soft drinks at a fraction of the cost.
The beach is rocky so you need to walk a little way to swim.we didnt mind this though.
The road noise may be an issue to light sleepers.we noticed the noise however it didnt worry us too much.

Overall if you want to be on a quieter beach then this is the place to stay.we had a jacuzzi suite which was really nice.the pool villas in the front all have their own pools overlooking the rocks and sea.
The friendly staff make this resort and we wouldn't hesitate to come back.
A few minor changes/improvements and this hotel could be fabulous.

My Husband and our daughter (6yrs old) recently stayed at this hotel and honestly I do not have the words to express enough how wonderful our stay was. We stayed in a pool villa which was everything we could have asked for. The hotel is well placed right on the beachfront. The staff were truly wonderful, there was not one thing they would not do for you and the food was just delicious. This was our 3rd trip to Thailand and in years to come, this will be the only place we will stay.

Honestly, if you love authentic hotels and you love the ocean stay here!

A special thank you to the wonderful staff. We are very grateful for the way you looked after us and your genuine kindness.
