... laundry, motorbike hire and atms. Great.

The first surprise was when we arrived at 9.55pm to check in. Was expecting Thai hosts, but instead were met by two big western guys, maybe Russian. Surprisingly one has a really high voice which doesn’t match his frame. Is a little off putting but they’re really nice and helpful.

Turns out we were lucky as reception closed at 10pm, which we didn’t know, so that saved us sleeping ...

... had to wedge her leg under mine and use it as an anchor to stop her falling off the back. This was not an unusual scenario for me - kinda reminded me of carting small bales of hay on john millers farm as kids where we were on top of about a dozen layers of hay bales travelling down the road. However the gravel roads of ngapara were a lot better than the roads we travelled on this day. The roads were either dirt or in ...

I wandered down the rock formation to get a different perspective and then I was sure I found the right spot. See for yourself in the photos.

Our next stop, was the Na Muang Waterfall. We ...

Official Laundry Warning

... our laundry up to the dryer, inserted the money, and stepped away from the machine. Then it all kicked off. 3 people stormed the now vacant machine at once each declaring loudly they were next. We stepped sharply out of the way and of course had to stay a while to see what happened next. We wouldn't have believed it but a woman dived through the air with her laundry stuck out in front of her and dived in to the machine up to her shoulders. Another ...

Arrival in Ko Samui (Day 17)

... adviser about which detox program we wanted to do. We were signed up for the 5 day juice cleanse but saw a 7 day “Clean me out” program that looked more intense and thorough. We didn’t have 7 days but had 5 ½ so wanted to see if a slightly shorter version was available. We were given a 7PM time to meet on the 2nd floor of the restaurant to speak with an adviser to discuss our options.

We strolled around the property a bit, had a little snack at their ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Samudra Retreat Samui Ko Samui

    Paradise Resort

    from

    Having read several negative comments about this resort, I was relieved and pleased to find out that many of them are not true (at least not during my stay). For example, staff were friendly and helpful, as were the buggy drivers who ferried us to and from the lobby and rooms. Although there was still some work going on due to incompletion to a small section of the huge resort, the workers were unobtrusive and the view was not marred. I also did not see any retail/time-share clients.

    Nichts Aussergewöhliches!

    from

    Ein wunderschönes Fleckchen Land mit viel Potenzial. Leider kann dies aber nicht über die Bauarbeiten hinwegtäuschen, die parallel an diesem Hotel gemacht werden und nur ein Teil bisher vollendet ist. Die Zimmer sind schön, geräumig und modern, die Aussicht auf Bagger und Bauarbeiter ist weniger schön! Man wird ständig von Timeshare Verkäufern belästigt, besonders am Pool. Das Management ist unter aller Würde, es gibt so gut wie keinen Kundenservice und das Hotel braucht dringend ein internationales Management, um dieses Hotel wieder auf die Füße zu bekommen. Viel Potenzial, allerdings macht das Hotel wenig, um dies auszunutzen. Im Vergleich zu anderen 4 Sterne Hotels auf der Insel, ist dieses Hotel ganz unten auf der Liste. Ich kann dieses Hotel leider nicht weiterempfehlen, zumindest so lange nicht, wie es hier Bauarbeiten und dieses Management gibt.

    5 Sterne für Samui, aber nicht nach internationalem Standard

    from

    Dies ist nicht nur ein Hotel, sondern auch ein Timeshare Resort. Hier gibt es ständig potenzielle Interessenten, die für das Timeshareangebot an Land gezogen wurden und auf dem Gelände herumlaufen . Das spricht natürlich nicht gerade für die Sicherheit hier. Das Management hat keine Ahnung, w Ein wunderschönes Fleckchen Land mit viel Potenzial.

    5* for Samui but not up to international 5* standards

    from

    This is not only a hotel but a timeshare resort.

    Beautiful hotel with great views, but location leaves much to be desired

    from

    Stayed here for 1 week in a 1 bedroom pavilion suite. The setting is beautiful, perched on top of a small cliff overlooking nearby islands and the Gulf of Thailand. Our suite was spacious and comfortable, but was skimpy on kitchen supplies like cutlery and dishes. The infinity pool is very nice, and has a spectacular view. Staff was pleasant but we had to make multiple requests to get simple things like extra sheets and towels, etc.

    Nothing to get excited about.

    from

    A lovely spot with much potential however this hotel is a building site and the view cannot compensate for the incessant development that is going on in parallel with the parts of the hotel that are completed. The rooms and pool are nice, spacious and modern, however the views of a digger and 10 thai workers less so! There is a permanent flow of timeshare salesmen showing prospective buyers through the hotel which is disturbing especially when by the pool.

    Great view shame about the management!

    from

    Great view and location but scruffy for an alleged 5* resort. We went there for part of our honeymoon having exchanged a time share week from elsewhere with there. The advertisement led us to believe we would get a villa with our own pool but we got a large one bedroom apartment which whilst quite nice was not what was expected. The toilet kept blocking, the hot water was occassional at best and the 'outdoor' shower was not cleaned properly.

    Beautiful view

    from

    i stayed at the samui pensinula in march 2004. the hotel is above choeng momg beach, a 10 minute drive from chaweng. i really liked the beach. the water was beautiful, there are some smaller hotels on the beach and the bigger boat house hotel. plenty of restaurants are in walking distance/on the beach. the samui peninsula has several buildings. you can have a room or a bungalow with your own pool. the restaurant of the hotel served fresh and very nice meals and i really loved the beautiful view from this hilltop location. the resort is connected by steps/stairs so it might not be the best place for older people or people with walking problems.
