... We have a lovely pool here though and it's right on the beach and we are paying 625 (equivalent of £12)... I swear I'm going to be so stingy when I get home as even paying that felt so expensive compared to the usual £4 a night hostel haha!! Tomorrow we are getting a ferry to Ko Tao so it would be rude not to have a few cocktails on our last night Love to you all from Koh Phangnan x Hotel: First Villa ...
... parts and to make matters worse it started to rain ! I suggested we stop and let the men share the inside but the driver insisted it was only 'a little bit' and we would be at the resort in another 10 minutes anyway.....I did have bit of a chuckle to myself at that point.... Home for the next few days is the Dreamland resort. Our room is a lovely little bungalow in beautiful tropical gardens with our own front porch ...
... we had in May when we returned from Singapore. We didn't clean his room, the bedding is the same bedding he used for 2 weeks when he was last here and has continued to use it - urgh.
Darren collected them from the pier at 8.30am so it was a seriously early start for him. It was a nice sunny day so I took a few extra pictures that had been requested. When they arrived it was all a little clinical and cold. We've been seriously ill and all we ...
... bucket came to only £4 and we were absolutely flabbergasted as to how cheap this was for the amount of alcohol we had been given. As the night rolled on we sipped from our bucket and were thoroughly entertained by the local fire dancers who were baton twirling with fire. It was a phenomenal event and one which we will never ever forget. As the night rolled on and the buckets flowed we thought we would head back to the room for a little bit and it was then ...
... hotel is a little rocky and not good for swimming, but there is a good one beach around the corner. We arrived there, had a quick lunch and headed for the water. It was just like stepping into a bath it was so warm. Anna and I were in the water when all of a sudden she started screaming "ow, ow ow, ow, ow" and heading for the beach. She had been stung by a jellyfish (this has happened before, so we knew what it was). We headed back to the restaurant and they put ...

Historical Traveler Reviews InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort
The hotel was everything we expected and more. Stunning location, beautiful rooms and great service. We had a deluxe ocean front room and liked it very much as it was central to everything. We had some stormy weather in the first week so it was useful to be able to use the infinity pool and run for cover in our room. The second week we had consistently sunny weather and saw the beauty of the villas - although some did not have a sea view so I guess that's luck of the draw. We might try one next time. At any other resort we would normally have a beach villa, but here they seemed rather isolated from the main part of the hotel. One thing that was not clear from any literature that we saw was that there is a road between the main part of the hotel and the beach area.
My wife and I stayed here to attend a family wedding. From the moment we arrived late Sunday night, it was overwhelming.
My husband and I stayed here for 1 week in September 2003. A while ago I know but I am new to Tripadvisor.
My boyfriend and I took our first trip to Thailand and we can't say enough about how great our stay in Ko Samui was..the Le Meridien was top notch the staff was wonderful and the hotel did a fantastic job at creating a relaxing and luxurious envirnoment. We would definitely go back and next time we'll stay longer...one week was just not enough. Thanks to all who made our travel from the United States so memorable!
Everybody smiles in Thailand and this hotel is no excemption. The staff must be the most welcoming I have come across.
Stayed here for six nights in January 2005, we were originally booked into deluxe rooms in the main hotel which were very good but after exploring the hotel decided to upgrade to a two bedroom beachfront villa (No 501 - Khon Din). The beach villas are split into two buildings with bedrooms separated by an open terrace area, a separate sitting room with kitchen and toilet. Both areas are extreamly well furnished and a step from the beach. Fabulous views of the sunset from loungers and open air eating area. The beach villas are a short hop on an efficient private golf cart service from the main hotel. The beach was pretty but a little rocky. Another nice touch was the fragrance menus in the bedrooms.
The welcome was exactly what you would expect from a hotel of this quality and we were given coconut milk whilst told to relax during check-in as they did it all for us.
We really enjoyed our time here. From the moment we turned up and were so warmly greeted to the moment we left were it felt like the entire hotel staff came to say goodbye !
On our family holiday we spent three nights in Le Royal Meridien Baan Taling Ngam. At the end of the day, the hotel lacked the five-star status of most Royal Meridiens, but it had as much to do with the lack of updating as well as insect-control.
We were so disappointed with this hotel. The room was fine and had all the usual equipment for a 5 star, but the food was dull and for a hotel of this size it seemed such a limited choice. There was however an excellant Thai resturant.
Our main complaint was the famous swimming pool which would have been lovely had it not been plagued by large black birds. They dived at you while you ate and landed on you whilst you tried to sunbath. Things got so bad that the hotel took to firing at them with a catapult, which caused further distress to the guests.
The hotel is much larger than you think and it feels like you are staying on a large housing estate. It's sister hotel in Phuket however, is fantastic.
