... heat with our backpacks on our shoulders. After we enquired on the prices of a few other guesthouses, which were either too pricey or fully booked, we found Big Blue Diving Resort 1000B a night (approx £18) More than we wanted to pay, but the room was quite nice and just a few steps off of the beach. Our room was really spacious, with 2 double beds (for some reason) and big sliding doors going out onto a lovely balcony. No air con, but there was a fan. We stayed ...
... I feel like I'm being suffocated on a daily basis.
He wanted to pay us £800 a month and I said no. When we started 40,000 THB was worth £900 and that is what we want to be paid and this is huge step back from the £1,500 a month we asked for. I was being firm and standing my ground. I also asked him for £1,000 for the additional work we've undertaken since we started in February. He pays a local Thai person 1,000 THB a day for additional ...
... is shining and it's hot hot hot! Today is a dedicated beach day! Lounging around drinking fresh coconuts, swimming in the sea and having a foot massage & scrub - bliss! Only having not really being out during daylight hours for 25 days - yep you guessed it - I'm sunburnt! Just call me Larry the lobster or pink Floyd! Ouchie! This evening I got back into Thai food and oh my days is it spicy - when you see one chilli next to the dish on the menu you think 'oh that can't ...
... of money to complete 3 projects; a new road system, an airport and a dam. Within just a few days of this being rumoured work started on the road. This is great news, however the down side is they need to move a hell of a lot of electricity posts which means we are having more and more power cuts.

I've found a cafe that does English breakfast tea :) OMG!! straight in for a cuppa mmmmmmm! Got on the boat & promptly finished my only ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kandaburi Resort & Spa Chaweng
We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Kandaburi Resort & Spa and I could not speak highly enough of this resort. We are aged 27 & 30 and wanted a relaxing holiday in the sun with a little fun and great food. We were not disappointed!
I stayed at the Kandaburi Resort & Spa, in September 2006, and absolutely enjoyed my whole time there. The resort is only a few months old, so everything is very new and stylish. The lobby area overlooks the whole resort, giving you a stunning view.
The most newly built hotel in Chaweng beach
We stayed for 7 nights in August 2006. The property is probably the newest in Chaweng. It is located in the north side of the beach which unfortunately isnt the best part , mainly due to the tide, which makes the sea better to watch than to swim!
The hotel, however, is impressive with XX- large rooms and pool. Service is excellent and all staff very friendly and helpful.
The enviroment is quiet, as the hotel is a bit far from the noise of the center(10min walk). Breakfast is not bad, but nothing special either. The rest of the menu is above average, while cocktails were my soft spot (tried almost everything). If you dont necessarily look for traditional thai cottages, Kantaburi is definately one of the best places to stay in Chaweng.
After spending 4 busy days in Bangkok, we had organized another 4 days trip in Koh Samui Island.
What an amazing place. We stayed in Bangkok for 3 nights, then Koh Tao in a beach hut (no A/C) or hot water and was dreaming of luxury to then arrive to stay at the Kandaburi for 8 nights! WOW!
I was one of the wedding party quests staying at the Kandaburi in August 2006 and what can I say... what a fanatstic time I had not only because I was with my friends but because the hotel itself was definately the best I have ever stayed in and I have travelled the world.
We have just had the most superb wedding at the Kandaburi Resort, and we want to recommend this brand new property, the hotel's GM, and his brilliant staff to everybody.
We booked this hotel as my sister was getting married here, so it wasn't booked out of choice but it is probably one of THE best hotels I have stayed in and I have travelled all over the world, from standard, to service to staff.
