Where I stayed

Flag of Thailand  , Surat Thani,
Monday, December 3, 2012

We got another ferry from Koh Tao via Koh Phangnan to Koh Samui. This wasn't the best ferry journey but we were happy it was going to be our last!
We had booked a really nice hotel and got a fab deal on it because it had building work going on! We had a bit of a long journey as the minibus we got in had to take a few others to their hotel and we were last. The driver also got the wrong hotel at first.
We arrived and the front entrance just wasn't there as it was literally a building site. We thought we had made a bit mistake but then were pleasantly surprised. We were taken around the side to a small office which was reception. Then taken round the back to our room. As we walked around the back of the hotel the beach was to our left and we just saw a amazing pool. All the rooms were really modern and nicely decorated. We couldn't believe it because we had breakfast included also.
Our room overlooked the pool and then straight to our right was the building work. This didn't effect us, I think because we knew it was there, It would be a different story if you booked without knowledge of this. We again hired a moped to have a look around the town but spent most of the day and the gorgeous pool.
The next day was my birthday and I was all excited to receive all my ecards and messages from everyone at home, We had our breakfast overlooking the sea then relaxed by the pool. The was a ice bar in Koh Samui that I had read about and had my heart set on going there. We couldn't believe it as we drove into the town for lunch that all the lights were off and places were closed due to a power failure on the island. We thought it would get better by the evening but it didn't so my plan of going to the ice bar didn't happen. This was a bit of a downer but we were really excited to be leaving Thailand for Australia in the morning! Our first stop was Brisbane and we had quite a few flights to get on. Koh Samui - Bangkok. Bangkok - Sydney. Sydney - Brisbane!
