... paradise! And as soon as I got in that sea I felt much better. Luckily my bug was short lived. We did volunteering for 3 mornings here, building a dam to help flooding and visited a nursery. The children are so so gorgeous I am definitely going to get myself a couple. I loved Koh Samui, it was so great so it's set our expectations high for the other two islands. On a night we went to an area of the island where there are lots of bars and clubs near/on the beach. There was ...
... in a picturesque little cove called Mango Bay; at that point in time we were the only boat in sight. We received our snorking instructions and took to the crystal clear waters. I had my underwater camera ready (tried and tested in Malaysia) and as soon as it hit the water, it broke. It refused to turn on or do anything, despite me having fully charged the battery the night before. I was distraught; I had come all this way to take beautiful underwater photos and now my camera ...
... ferry to Bestival. The boat was packed and the ride was bumpy. We were handed flyers from the crew on 'safe drinking'. I'm sure this was necessary for some people to read! On arrival in Koh Pha-ngan, we jumped in a taxi in hope they could help us find our accommodation we'd booked into. It turns out, they had changed the name recently so no one knew where it was. After having a very similar coversation with 3 different taxi drivers and making no progress, we eventually found the ...
... overpriced meals. In fact, everything here was grossly overpriced because almost no guests actually rent a car. They taxi from the airport and then are "stuck" at this gorgeous resort until they leave. Therefore, everything is priced accordingly. Harmony and I had the car so we chose to leave the resort every night to sample the local cuisine. We had amazing meals in the most breathtaking locations with most of the meals averaging ...
... I managed to boil water for instant coffee. Lisa preferred tea which she liked to drink with milk and sugar, but as we had no milk, her husband took off for a walk to rustle some up at one of the little family owned stores downhill. Jeri, the owner, had mentioned these places for small purchases, describing the establishments as "a couple of refrigerators in someone's living room." Lanny was gone for some time, and on his return was pretty sweaty, having descended all ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bo Phut Resort & Spa Bophut
We stayed in the Bo Phut Resort & Spa for a week in Early Febuary 06. It is an excellent hotel, the staff friendly and service is impeccable.
The best experience!
Excellent! Service, food, room,... everything! I really recommend it!
After reading all of the positive reviews on tripadvisor my partner and I decided that we would stay at the Bo Phut Resort and Spa for 10 days in Dec 2005 - we were not disappointed, the hotel is beautiful and the staff are wonderful and so helpful. On arrival we were told that the room we were meant to be staying in had been damaged (we assumed by the rain as a couple of weeks earlier there had been some flooding on Samui due to really heavy rain fall - the island was fine when we were there apart from some big puddles on the roads!!!) and we had been upgraded to an ocean view room with a jacuzzi on the balcony. The room was spotless and looked wonderful - the bathroom had a great power shower and the jacuzzi on the balcony doubles as a bath - lovely just as the sun is setting over the sea. The pool is wonderful - overlooking the sandy beach and the staff are on hand to serve cocktails and bar snacks all day whilst you take in the view. The hotel also has a wonderful spa (we made use of it one afternoon when it was raining) and complimentary internet usage. The hotel is located 5 minutes walk down the beach from the fishing village where you will find the local restaurants and bars - the food and drinks here are much cheaper than in the hotel. We did eat in the Thai restaurant at the hotel which was wonderful, however I would not recommend that you eat breakfast at the hotel as it is very expensive, and just a short walk into the fishermans village and you will find Coffee Junction, which does excellent coffee (both Thai and Italian) and a great selection of food. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to get away from it all and totally relax.
My friend and I spent 7 nights in November at this beautiful hotel. We chose it being a new property, discounted and Bo Phut is a quieter resort than some of the others in Ko Samui.
We have just returned from the Bophut resort. It is a fantastic little boutique resort. The restaurants were very good and suprisingly well priced considering the standard of the hotel. The rooms are of a very high standard.
My partner and I just returned from 10 nights staying in a garden villa at the Bo Phut Resort and Spa. If you are a couple looking for a stylish, quiet, relaxing, chilled out holiday then this is the place. The poolside service was second to none and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

Great hotel! the best I've ever stayed at.
We stayed in a deluxe room with outdoor jacuzzi,a beautyful designed clean room with a very nice bed,spacious shower and cd and dvd player.
This hotel offers the best service you could ever wish, and the staff is truly friendly.
The food in the restaurants and the breakfast is also very good.
My husband and I have just returned from 7 wonderful days at this hotel.
We had the pleasure of staying in a Garden Villa in Feb 2005.
The hotel had recently opened and the standard of accommodation was excellent. The staff were friendly, but sometimes seemed to lack the usual customer service you get in the far east, I suppose over time they will gain experience.
The restaurants looked lovely, unfortunately there were rarely any guests in them. I think they need to advertise a bit more to get people up from the beach.
If I were to return to Bo Phut I would stay at the resort again,
Just returned from a beautiful break at the Bophut Resort & Spa, Bophut, Koh Samui. We looked long and hard at brochures and websites before booking this one but looking back, we made a great choice! I am a 16 year veteran of Samui and don't worry when people say 'Samui's changed; it's not what it was' etc. Of course it's changed, things move on, it's called progress and some of it is for the better.....
