Koh Samui

Author: Alan
Date of Trip: April 2012

We stayed at the BAAN Samui in Koh Samui Thailand in April 2012 average temps 32c every day and no rain to speak of.

The Baan Samui is unique due to it’s Mexican decor. The rooms are spacious and kept clean by the friendly cleaning staff.

From the time we got to the resort until the time we left (10 days later) we had a GREAT TIME. The front office, restaurant and bar staff were great and always had a smile on their face. The resort has two theme nights every week and the food is very good, it is very hard to resist eating outside of the resort as cafe’s restaurants are everywhere (and cheap). The resort has a HAPPY HOUR every afternoon where you can get your favorite cocktail for 95 bahrt (a bargain). The resort is right on the beach however they do have a great pool for lazing around, the massage girls are also in the pool area with their own area overlooking the pool and beach (massage prices are all the same price regardless of where you go to, so if you are into that then support the girls at the resort). There is a super market straight across the road from the Baan it sells everything their drinks (all kinds are so cheap so stock up your fridge with them and take them to the beach/pool when you want, you will save a fortune). Getting around Samui is easy just walk out the front and get a cab (negotiate the price with the driver). Shopping for all of those T shirts etc s plenty full and yes they have those designer clothing shops also.

All in All Koh Samui is a GREAT spot to have a fantastic vacation or just chill out.
