... f...ing head off" So here we are - I am lying in my hammock and Franki is away with the fairies. It will soon be cocktail hour and a walk down the beach. Smack, klap, kapow!! You can't beat a strong shot of Hong Song (700 calories) with a Coke ZERO (calories about the same) and a sunset walk along the beach. The photos tell the story. Now off to complete a fabulous day with yet another mouth watering candlelit dinner on the ...
... and walking around for a bit. Then we indulged in a 10 hour sleep... heaven.
The next day we visited Ang Thong national park. The trip was fantastic. The sailing around the 42 islands was so beautiful and already worth our money. We got to snorkel and climb up to emerald lake, which was stunning. On one side you see the blue of the ocean, on the other the green of the lake. It was a great day. Sadly, ravers are arriving so we have to leave after such a short time. ...
... We've had a few frank discussions with Mike. He has admitted to Darren that he thinks he's made a mistake:
- David cannot understand English. He can read it, but he doesn't know what it says
· He cannot reply to guest enquiries
· He cannot work out prices when put on the spot
· He cannot use a computer
· He has never used outlook, word or excel
· He smokes like a chimney
... from hell!!! Anyway we kept quite for the journey and was thankful when we got off!! Phuket so far is great I have a good feeling about this place, I like the city vibe and market stalls and there is a beach not too far if I want to go there too. I think tomorrow me and Jess will do a walk mapped out already on a map to see where we are at!! I had my first proper tearful meltdown today, I lost 1000baht (about £20) and was in tears that everything is going ...
... that something had to be done! There were various stalls lining the beach where proper artists would provide you with a body mural of your choice for 500 baht (£10+) but being the cheapskates we are, we decided on the DIY option and bought a selection of paint pots for 100 baht and painted each other instead. The effect was striking and definitely original but we were more Van Gogh than Rembrandt :-) Sadly we have no photos of the actual party as we were advised ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Paradis Boutique Resort & Spa Bophut
Dieses Hotel ist einfach fantastisch. Es hat wahrscheinlich die beste Lage am Chaweng Beach, es ist klein und friedlich, die Zimmer sind genau richtig für einen Urlaub (ich habe in der Villa Nr. 42 übernachtet, die im thailändischen Stil gehalten ist). Der Strand (weiß und sandig) liegt nur 10 Meter vom Zimmer entfernt, das Restaurant, wo das Frühstück serviert wird ist idyllisch und das Ganze liegt nur 50 Meter vom lebhaften Chaweng Nachtleben mit vielen (vielleicht zu vielen) Kneipen, Restaurants und Geschäften. Man bekommt, was man möchte in nur 5 Minuten, jedoch immer noch im versteckten Garten. Das Hotel liegt in einem wunderschönen, tropischen Garten, der sehr schön instand gehalten ist und perfekt mit dem Rest der Anlage im Einklang liegt. Ein toller Wellnessbereich (vielleicht etwas zu teuer) und ein ausgezeichneter Service (das Englisch der Angestellten ist nicht das Beste, aber Sie geben sich viel Mühe). Ich habe eine Woche hier verbracht und bin dann weiter nach Tongsai, was ich bereut habe, da ich das Paradies sehr vermisst habe. Das Meer ist für Kinder sehr geeignet und man kann stundenlang entlang des weißen Strandes laufen. Ein toller Aufenthalt. Fahren Sie dort hin.
This is a fairly small resort so it doesn't compete on features such as a gym or tennis court. This doesn't bother me at all as you have a wonderful beach at your door step. The same applies to the pool, ie in a small resort the pool is never busy but it is not large, probably 15M long, quite enough for us. If you want to swim a few hundred metres, which I do, jump in the ocean and go for it, then finish off with a dip in the pool. I also like some shade around a pool and the palms (not some 4storey hotel wing) provide this.
Lovely place, good service, great location
A stop during our honeymoon trip. Great location in Chaweng, good serice. The room was pleasant with the sea view. Everything good.
Four star price for two-three star room and amenities. Le Paradis had pretty grounds, but the accomodations are so-so. The modern villa had the outdoor bathroom which was just wierd. And the traditional Thai villa's were really cute but really small. All in all, I felt as if I was staying at a very expensive camp ground.
A secluded and perfect sized hotel.
Our Les Paradis Hotel stay was the result of a spur of the moment booking that I won't regret any time soon. The gardens are lush and gorgeous, especially the lotus pond. The architecture is a terrific blend of traditional Thai and modern. There are choices of modern or Thai style bungalows. The rooms are well equipped, the staff were extremely friendly, even the housekeeper. The restaurant was one of the better meals we had while in Kho Samui and the beach fine. I can't understand why it's not ranked higher on Trip Advisor's list of hotel in Samui. I also felt it was good value for money as we had a good rate for our stay. Hidden off the main road just a bit, and really a good choice for Samui. I recommend it enthusiastically.
This place is simply fantastic.It has probably the best location in Chaweng beach, it is small and peaceful ,rooms are nice for holidaying (i stayen in the Thai contemporary villa nr 42) the beach (white and sandy) is 10 metres far from the room , the restaurant where you get breakfast is idyllic and all this it is 50 metres away from the burstling nightlife of chaweng with plenty (maybe too many ) of bars, restaurants shops etc etc .You can get what you want just in five minuttes but still in your secret garden.The hotel is nested in a smplendid tropical garen weel kept and perfectly integrated with the rest .Great spa (maybe too expensive) and superb service (their english is not the best anyhow but they try hard to make you feel happy ).
We have chose to stay in Le Paradis Resort in Chaweng Beach for 4 nights in this early August as a family, and is highly recommended.
We have chosen to stay in Le Paradis Resort (ex-Princess Village) in Chaweng Beach for 4 days. We are having a wonderful holiday right next to a white sand beach with fantastic value for money and hospitality here in Le Paradis Resort.
j'ai passé 10 jours formidables dans ce merveilleux petit hôtel
