Relaxing stay

Posted Oct 23, 2014
New Star Beach Resort was fantastic! The staff were one of the best things about it plus the location. We stayed in a beach front villa as it was our honeymoon & the staff made as feel so welcomed & like it was our home. Absolutely stunning! Easy access to everythjng at the resort & a huge room. Plenty of cupboard space, a nice sitting area, outside shower (plus an inside shower & bath). Would love to come back for a visit. Can't recommend this resort enough.

Wonderful staff and great location

Posted Oct 16, 2014
Pros: Great location, even better staff. Perfect honeymoon resort.
Cons: One minor snafu where it was unclear how much I would be paying for a ride. This was largely due to the language barrier with the hotel's driver.
Location: Lay on the beach, then lay on the pool, then lay on the beach some more. Get a ride into town if you want to party at night.
The staff were incredibly attentive and friendly. The general manager even invited all guests to a little complimentary happy hour sort of thing so that he could introduce his staff to us and make sure everyone was enjoying their stay. Granted, this was during the low season, so I can't guarantee the level of service would be the same if the resort was at full capacity. The location is hard to beat on Ko Samui. It's far enough removed from the heart of Chaweng Beach that you'd never know there was a wild party scene up there, but it's close enough that it's easily accessible via a short taxi ride. Also close to Lamai Beach, which is supposed to be very beautiful, although we didn't get to visit during daylight. Oh yeah, and this is easily a 4-5 star level resort and comes with all the amenities. The one warning I'll offer is that you'll do a fair amount of walking up stairs and/or steep grades, especially if you're not in a beachfront room/suite and/or you plan on leaving the resort each day. Not a far distance, just sort of steep, with no elevators or escalators. Wasn't a problem for us, but could be for those who are less mobile.

Great stay

We had a great stay at the New Star and would certainly stay there again. The beach was fantastic, the room spacious and extremely clean and the breakfast buffet tasty with a wonderful selection of food.

Great hotel on an excellent beach.

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: Very well located, away from the hustle and bustle of Charweng, but only a short cab or Sontow ride to town.
Cons: Not much. Maybe a gym for those that want one.
Location: Close to most things. Tours are plentiful and cover most wants. Island tour and Koh Tow snorkeling are worth consideration.
Excellent beach with great views but may not suit older people as it can be a little steep in places. Beach sellers are well behaved and only directly approach you if you invite them to- a simple shake of the head, or no eye contact and they stay away. The pool is warm and well extremely clean and well maintained. The rooms are large and well maintained. Starting to show the age in a few places, but still quite neat. Staff are very attentive and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is fresh and plentiful, lunch and dinner by the pool is very enjoyable. Lay on the beach all day, dinner and shopping in the cool of the evening, tomorrow, breakfast, beach, shopping.... doesn't get much more relaxing. Don't miss the night market at Bophut on a Friday night!

Great beach and pool but hotel needs maintenance

Posted Jun 16, 2014 on Hotels.com
Booked a cottage, nice room but air con was abysmal and very noisy needs upgrading, We had no aircond for first night of our stay. Also breakfast could have been a lot better if more attention was paid to presentation. Aircon at breakfast room also need upgrading, would hate to have been there in high season.High points one of the best swimming beach in Koh samui, fantastic pool. had a great thai night on beach excellent food and value for money.All staff need training in English, very poor for standard of hotel. Would be a great hotel if management attended to maintenance a lot of cottages and hand rails need painting.Stay here only if you get a good deal because you wont get a better beach or pool.

Österreichische Gemütlichkeit unter Palmen

Posted Mar 22, 2014 on Hotels.com
Das New Star Beach, unter der Leitung eines österreichischen GMs, liegt direkt am Chaweng Beach, zwischen Vanabelle Luxury Resort und Samui Imperial, ein toller Starndabschnitt, der aber leider zusehends "verdreckt", da die Thais (auch die Hotels, die hier allesamt die Verantwortung tragen), den Müll nicht wegräumen (Zigarettenstummel, Plastikflaschen von Getränken und Sonnenschutzmitteln).. Natürlich sind die Touristen daran schuld, dennoch könnten die Hotels da etwas unternehmen. Im New STar Beach Resort immer tip top sauber, auch auf Anregungen durch uns während des Urlaubs (zb 2 maliges Ausleeren der Mistkübel pro Tag am Strand) wurde Bedacht genommen. das Resort ist sehr familiär, es waren hauptsächlich zu unserem Reisetermin Deutsche und Österreichische Gäste. Die Österreichische Hand bekommt man spätestens nachmittags zu spüren, wenns um 15:30 Uhr "Kaffee und Kuchen" am Strand gibt und der General Manager meist selbst mit unten ist um mit den Leuten zu quatschen und Guest Relations zu leben. Preis-Leistung ist "okay", Service durchaus auch okay, die vorwiegend jungen Angestellten geben sich sehr viel Mühe, ich denke es wird halt noch ein bisserl Zeit benötigen, bis auch da alles 100% bei den Jungen eingespielt ist, aber es gab keinerlei Beanstandungen. Frühstücksbuffet ausreichend, von asiatisch bis kontinental für jeden was dabei.
