The Chava Resort

Apartment resort near beaches, boutiques and restaurants

Located near the exclusive Surin Beach, the Chava Resort is perfect for family vacations with amenities across the board and apartment styled housing. Parents have the choice of a kids pool, babysitting or a kids room. If you’re not traveling with family members, you’ll still find lots of amenities that cater to the adult crowd with an on-site spa, large pool, garden, entertainment centers in each apartment and nearby water sports including swimming and parasailing.

There are only 28 apartments on-site, which help to give travelers privacy once on the resort property. Each apartment comes complete with all the amenities and more including a kitchen, dining room, living room and 2 to 5 bedrooms. Some even come with your own private plunge pool. Prices are higher than other resorts, but instead of just a room, you’ll find yourself in full sized apartment catering to large groups.

What the reviews say

With a pleasant and helpful staff, spacious apartments and delicious food, it seems like it’s hard for past guests to find anything wrong or even really anything out of the ordinary. In fact, guests have enjoyed their stay so much that many plan to return again during their next holiday, which really says a lot about a hotel since there is so much competition. As far as resort amenities are concerned, many happy guests have remarked on how big the pool is as well as how nice their own private room pool is.

Guests have really enjoyed the on arrival drinks and fruit basket, stating that it’s a perfect way to start a resort stay. The location of the resort is detailed as very rewarding as well, and guests particularly like how close it is to Surin Beach and all of the surrounding restaurants, which is a big deal since there is only one restaurant within the resort. All in all, the amenities and proximity to attractions helps this apartment resort achieve high marks with pretty much every person who stayed planning a trip back.
