Mercure Samui Buri Resort, Maenam

Mercure Samui Buri Resort, Maenam

This is a fairly new resort, just over a year and it's located just outside of Maenam in a quiet corner, away from the busy ring road, almost next to the Nah Phra Lam pier where the Lomprayah ferries leave for Koh Phangang and Koh Tao.

The hotel looks very impressive and is build in very typical Thai style, part of which just make it look so impressive with it's typical roofs.

The beach at Maenam is nice but the sand is very big and not the same powder quality as in Chaweng. The romantic Fisherman's Village is just a 10 minute drive away and can offer some nice dining options and each Friday the walking street.

For golfers it's also good to know that the Santiburi Samui Country Club Course, the only 18 hole golf course on the island, is around the corner.

For a nice quiet get away with very reasonable prices, this hotel with it's 86 rooms is just what you may be looking for.

Banyan Tree Samui, Lamai

Banyan Tree Samui, Lamai

This is luxury villa's at it's best in Lamai, located on a quiet and nice white beach on top of that as well. The 78 all pool villas are perfect for a nice getaway.
Cascading terraces on a private hill cove in the south-eastern coast of Koh Samui give this resort a special touch.
If you desire to leave the premises, make sure you have access to transportation, although it's near to Lamai, it's nowhere walking distance!
The Samui Banyan Tree also features 'The Rainforest', Koh Samui's only hydrotherapy wellness facility.

All this luxury and well being comes with a price tag though but if it's in your budget, it's well worth it!
