Melati Beach Resort, Thongson Bay, Plai Laem

Melati Beach Resort, Thongson Bay, Plai Laem

The Melati Beach Resort is located in a lovely small and idyllic bay, the Thongson Bay, which ranks amongst my fave bays on Samui.
The resort is conceptualized as a Thai Village planning integrated with 79 units around lush tropical landscape overlooking pristine white sand and a fantastic view of neighboring Koh Phangan.
This truly is a 5 star pool villa resort with private swimming pools in 41 out of 79 villas and suites. Surrounded by rain forest, rooms have a tropical decor and ambiance and are well-equipped with mod cons such as TVs and mini-fridges. The resort’s luxurious pool villas come with their own private garden and pool.

To get an idea about the rooms, here they are listed;

Grand Deluxe (1st Fl) 9 rooms 95 sqm.
Grand Deluxe (2nd Fl) 26 rooms 77 sqm.
Grand Deluxe Two Double Bed 3 rooms 95 sqm.
Private Garden Pool 14 rooms 144 sqm.
Pool Villas 12 rooms 143 sqm.
Pool Villa Suites 6 rooms 196 sqm.
Family Pool Villa 5 rooms 200 sqm.
Presidential Suites 4 rooms 347 sqm.

Samui airport is just about 10 minutes away and Chaweng with all it's offerings is just a mere 15 minutes away.

All this can be had for really fair. mid range prices.

Looking for that relaxed bungalow stay with all mod cons and a fantastic beach/bay to top it off? Don't look (too much) further! The Melati may be just what you're looking for.

Chaweng Park Place, Chaweng

Chaweng Park Place, Chaweng

The Park Place has fully serviced apartments which is becoming more and more a viable option for your stay on Koh Samui or elsewhere in Thailand for that matter.
The location is good, in my opinion and especially if you don't need a beach. The Park Place is located near the junction at the lake road, at the road that takes you from the start of the one way system in Chaweng to the ring road.

The apartments are separated into two styles: Standard Rooms and Deluxe Rooms. Standard rooms are an excellent budget accommodation choice for those who demand all the conveniences and comforts of modern living. The rooms feature a king sized bed, UBC satellite television, free ADSL internet, sofa, air-con, large sized mirrors, a fridge, sink and microwave and a Western style bathroom with hot water. Choose between a balcony with views over Chaweng Lake or of the verdant topical mountain.

The Deluxe rooms are larger and feature a separate living room area, with the bedroom sectioned off by shutters. The rooms offer all the space and comfort you’d wish for from long stay Samui accommodation and these are an affordable luxury option. Deluxe rooms feature UBC satellite TVs, free ADSL internet, fridge, microwave and sink, plenty of cupboard space so that you can stock up with food, a sofa and coffee table, large balcony patio with a view of the lake of peaceful mountain face, pool side balcony, large sized mirrors, air con and luxury Western bathrooms with hot water shower and bathtub.

Not bad if you ask me and the rates are very interesting with Big C and Tesco Lotus also around the corner if you need to stock up your fridge.
Looking for a centrally located apartment for a reasonable price, this might be it!
