But there’s always been one problem for a certain type of visitor to Samui: the clued-up independent traveler who, while keen to find good-value accommodation, doesn’t want to go too basic. A thatch-roofed hut with hard bed might save you money, but at cost of your being tired, cranky and altogether out of sorts. Some bargains aren’t worth it. And although the island has many high-end hotels and swish resorts, a couple nights there and your socializing and entertainment budget soon gets zeroed out. There was a gap to be filled.
Presenting Lub d Koh Samui Chaweng Beach, the island’s comfortable yet affordable new spot – a sweet spot – for sleeping well, having fun and making connections.
Lub d Koh Samui Chaweng Beach is situated on one of Chaweng’s last stretches of seafront large enough for a beach club setting. And because the hotel has preserved surrounding natural island flora, guests stay connected with nature as well. Add to that a design providing Gulf of Thailand views from just about anywhere, and at Lub d Koh Samui Chaweng Beach there’s always a feeling of being connected with the sea and surf, of being a part of beach life and society.
A trusted brand in Southeast Asia with properties in Thailand at Bangkok and Phuket as well as in neighboring Cambodia and The Philippines, Lub d now brings its “social hotel” concept to Samui Island. This is where the switched-on cool kids will be heading – both the young and the young at heart – who want a totally different kind of beach club experience while on holiday.
What’s a social hotel? It’s where like-minded travelers, whether solo or in groups, get much more than a great room at the right price. It’s also where socializing and making new friends are essential to the travel experience. Meet as strangers, leave as friends!
Guests realize the hotel brings something new to Chaweng Beach the moment they arrive. Enter the high-ceilinged lobby, and Lub d’s related “social space” design approach emerges straight away. For one, there’s the noticeable absence of any counter separating guests and staff. This signals the start of a friendly and welcoming vibe recurring all throughout the hotel – where barriers are literally down. The space exemplifies Lub d’s social hotel concept and makes getting settled in a breeze. A sea breeze, that is, since the hotel’s open-plan architecture allows for fantastic ocean views throughout as well as quick beach access from all common areas and main facilities.
And speaking of staff, Lub d hotels are just as distinctive for their friendly, fun-loving and knowledgeable staff members. They set the mood for good times during every stay and are always glad to provide local info and insight.
Those just-mentioned areas and facilities at Lub d are known collectively as Tropics Beach Club. They illustrate the hotel’s social space concept and comprise not only centralized places to eat, drink and swim, but also areas for games, parties, special entertainment events and other gatherings.
While the Club’s six components provide a setting for various types of activity, common to all is a wide range of easy-to-join activities and experiences to suit your mood. At Tropics Beach Club you can dance by the pool to live music and DJ sets; sip, nibble and dine; test your skill at a variety of games; catch a film; or just hang out with friends old and new. And when you want a bit of private time, say to read or maybe listen to a podcast, there’s quiet space for that too. But no matter where you are at Tropics Beach the Club, you’ll always feel connected to the social scene – and enjoy excellent ocean views into the bargain.
A real center of attention and major social space at Lub d Koh Samui Chaweng Beach: beachfront, see-through infinity pool with multicolor illumination and surrounded by sunken seating as well as cabanas with VIP options. Also hydraulic DJ booth featuring tunes by the hotel’s resident DJ. Activities include weekly pool party in addition to in-pool games such as volleyball, basketball and inflatable races.
Look for the huge, real tree then swim up or walk in to a pool bar like no other on Samui. The design allows guests to take in ocean views to one side or watch the swimming pool action behind. International menu includes breakfast, pasta dishes, pizza, sandwiches and burgers, with vegetarian options available. Refreshing drinks including juices and smoothies along with imaginative cocktails served all hours. Games and interactive activities make the bar another great social space for meeting up and making new friends.
90-seat venue featuring open-kitchen, several food zones and terrific ocean views. Not your typical beach club menu, either, but instead a diverse selection of global cuisines, outstanding local dishes, signature coffees and many more selections. Ideal for everything from a light and quick meal to romantic dinner for two.
You name it, we play it: foosball, pool/billiards, board games, giant jenga, ping-pong, arcade games and more. You won’t find this many games to choose from at any other Chaweng Beach hotel.
Nor will you find this at Chaweng: a spacious green lawn for movies, barbecues, special events and recreation activities.
Two-tiered beachfront decks for soaking up the sun and taking in the view, with white sands and warm gulf waters only a step or two away. An especially romantic setting and indeed available for private gatherings as well as part of honeymoon package.
