There are hundreds of hotels on this relatively small island, but the Q Signature is a good choice with a mix of privacy, central location and a helpful staff.
The Q Signature resort is only a 7 minute ride from the Koh Samui airport, costing 400 Baht with a transfer arranged through the hotel, which is equal to or cheaper than you would get from a taxi. The location of the hotel, at the top of a hill at the end of Choeng Mon Beach, is within walking distance from all the shops, restaurants and bars on Choeng Mon, which not a a huge area, but certainly has enough to keep you busy throughout a relaxing day on the beach. The beach also hosts a number of hotels that are directly on the water where you can hotel hop throughout the day checking out each. The difference between these hotels and the Q Signature is that the Q Signature hotel also has a level of privacy because of it’s location at the end of the beach, so that the pools are a bit quieter than those located directly on the beach. Choeng Mon Beach is also only about a 10-15 minute taxi ride from the much larger, busier Chewang Beach.
The rooms are quite spacious offering a variety from standard hotel rooms to private villas including their own small swimming pools. If you get a superior room request 563, as it has one of the best views as well as being larger than some other rooms, with it’s own lounge room and separate bedroom. If you are traveling in a group you may want to opt for one of the villas that can have multiple bedrooms and up to three villas share a private swimming pool. The rooms could use a bit of work for updating, but are all generally in good repair, clean and comfortable.
The restaurant facilities are reasonably priced and offer a decent variety of fare. The selections range of western sandwiches to Thai classics. There are also two bars on site near the two pools.
