... looked at each other and thought sheeeeet! Haha we got took to our 'Deluxe superior' room and it looked like every other basic room, no upgrades (the best is yet to come on this room) after unpacking we hear the sounds of a plane and it's like we are still at the airport. The flight route is directly above our room. We thought that was the worst but it wasn't. Anyway we headed out for our first night, having a bottle in the hotel first around the nice lit up pool. Heading ...
... that we could not read. Fortunately they were peaceful protestors and we reached the restaurant unharmed, settling in at an outdoor table overlooking Chaweng Bay with the town lights sparkling in the distance.
The menu at Dr. Frog’s has to be the most extensive I’ve seen in a long time. It had several dozen pages and food selections from many different cultures including Italian, Thai, Japanese, Steakhouse fare, and “Western” which ...
We spent five nights on the party island of Koh Phangan and when first arriving on the island I had no idea what to expect, I was very apprehensive with regards to what the party scene would be like. Mash had booked us into Blue Marine Bungalows and whilst it was a bit more pricey than what we would normally be willing to pay, it was worth it in order to cater for all the partying we would be doing. Myself and Matty shared one bungalow, Mash and Will had the other. It was a ...
... Magee rounded the corner. We each gave him manly embrace before making our way back to the taxi which happened to be another pick up truck. Will and I jumped in the back and talked for the twenty minute drive back to Hostel. His hair, which had become very long, morphed into various different shapes as the truck picked up speed. I found it very amusing. Once back at the Hostel we got Matt settled, introduced him to Megan and just watched a film on the sofas in the common ...
Again, we did virtually nothing today. Got up quite late, wondered over to the cafe area in a bikini and skirt, sat down and was introduced to Nok's amazing banana porridge, accompanied by a watermelon shake. Then we sat in hammocks all day and chilled out in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Muang Samui Spa Resort Bophut
This is an excellent resort hotel with superb rooms. Here are my pros and cons and some suggestions:
My husband and I stayed at the Muang Samui for almost two weeks. We had a fabulous time from the moment we arrived where we were met with pinapple juice and refreshing, scented hand towels; to check out, where we were once again treated to refreshments.
Muang Samui is located in north - central Chaweng, but way too close to the action to our taste. That means as as soon as you get out of the hotel, you find a girlie bar on your right - this is not what my boy-friend and I expected ! The hotel has only a not very wide strip of land between the beach road and the beach, so there is only a medium size swimming-pool (with only 16 sundecks for 53 rooms) and no real garden (though they made the place as leafy and lush as possible). The beach is rather ugly just in front of the hotel, with shallow waters and a strip of rock just in front. And a hawker every 30 seconds.
This resort hotel is simply gorgeous. Modern Thai design, influnced by colonial style building with lots of attention to detail and comfort. The rooms are large and well appointed, with guilded timber paneling, stone benchtops with ceramic basin, and private sala-balcony looking out into the garden. A small army of gardeners keep the grounds looking superb. The maid will let you sleep-in and change your room whenever it suits you. The pool is good, large with spa jets and strong waterfall, and separate children's pool. There is massage on the beach; have at least one, Thai massage is just the best. We didnt try the day Spa, but it did look inviting.
We stayed at Muang Samui Spa Resort for 8 nights this July. It was an excellent resort - the rooms are large with jacuzzi and shower and exceedingly clean. Direct access to the beach from the lovely pool area, good restaurant and walking distance to all the bars. We would definately stay there again - hopefully soon!!
Based on some very good site reveiws we booked a week at the Muang Samui (Self Rated 5 star) from the 4th to 11th July 2005, but lasted two days only before having to change hotels. We booked one of their Royal Suite which was elegantly furnished and spacious (106 square meters). Unfortunately for us Suite 3002 on the 3rd floor left hand side of the building near to Chaweng Road was ununhabitable from early evening to around 3 am in the morning due to the music and noise from 2 girlie bars directly adjacent to the hotel. On advising the front desk they offered to move us futher down the building on the opposite side of the Hotel, to an equivilent suite, but on the following day as nothing else was available.We accepted and based on this we spent a further sleepless night, only to find the following morning the offer withdrawn for the alternative suite. We found out someone else had been more forceful than us wth a similar problem. we asked to speak with the Hotel Manager but was advised there was no one in this position at this time. We did manage to speak eventually to a visiting Deputy Managing Director of the Hotel,s owning company, who could not help. It was an attitude of take it or leave it. A very unprofessional attitude in our opinion. We were to find out from the front desk that the noise has been an ongoing problem since the Hotel opened and there is nothing they can do about it. They advised that many clients complain. Our recommendation if you want a quiet night don,t stay here unless your travel agent can guarantee you a room near the beach, definately avoid the left hand side of the hotel near Chaweng Road. It is a great shame as the hotel has a very good restuarant (excellent Thai food) a great pool and general hotel staff, pity about the management. In this case it must be "Caveat Emptor" (Buyer Beware)
Fab - great even with 2 year old
This is a truly fantastic hotel. we stayed for 4 nights and are about to go back for 3 more and try out the presidential suites. this hotel really pays attention to detail and they made us very welcome - if you are travelling with young children they have great cots and the pool is great for any age - it is a lovely adult feel hotel - would be great for honeymoon too but Children are also very welcome. I would recommend this hotel to everyone I know who is coming to Thailand. Nice Dressing gowns and slippers, spa bath with flowers in on arrival a complementry box with shampoo, etc in for you to take home plus restocked in your room every day - even room service was cheap and delic. Hope you enjoy as much as we did. I'll be trying the spa when I get back there,
Absolutely the best hotel in Koh Samui
Everything about this hotel is perfect from beginning to end! Our rooms were the best i've stayed at while in Thailand (and i stayed at 5 different hotels!)
You can walk to the semi-private beach without leaving the hotel! You get a giant jacuzzi bath as well as the most relaxing shower ever. The staff were absolutely fantastic and the whole ambience is great.
It is a bit on the expensive side but you get a lot more than what you pay for.
It is a great place to relax and is only about a 5 minute walk from all the hustle and bustle of Chaweng Beach Road.
I wish i stayed here forever!
Absoluetly fantastic accomodations - very pretty, beautiful decor, comfortable, luxurious.
Perfect resort - Muang Samui Spa Resort!
This gorgeous boutique resort on the beach in Chaweng is a delight to stay in. Stylish rooms, beautiful landscaping, a heavenly day spa and pool all combine to make it a slice of heaven in busy Chaweng. The bathroom is spacious and fabulous - it's like your very own day spa! Do yourself a favour and stay here for a touch of Thai hospitality and style.
