Idyllic Samui, Resort & Villas, Plai Laem

The Idyllic Resort & Villas offers 15 three and four bedrooms villas and each villa comes with a private pool, straight on the beach of Samrong bay. The beach is shared with Six Senses Sila Evason Hideaway and Arayaburi Resort, two very luxurious hotels. Exclusive company indeed.

All the villas are built in Balinese style with a main house and a separate guesthouse(s) and at least 3 bathrooms and there's also a seaview condominium.

Pets are allowed, there's are disabled facilities, babysitting is available, a shuttle service exists and of course there's free Wi-Fi in public areas and throughout the resort. The resort is slightly isolated and without transportation or shuttle there's not many places to go to. This has it's pro's and cons, pending on what you're looking for.

Under Dutch ownership, a stay here will guarantee a quiet and relaxed experience in a secluded bay.

Code, Bang Po

At the time of writing the Code hotel is the number one at TripAdvisor for Koh Samui. Considering they only opened as of January 2012, that's an impressive feat.

The hotel seems to have it all, although it's located on a hill with absolute stunning views and sunsets but there's no direct access to the beach. For that you need to walk or ride down and cross the busy ring road.

There are just forty very big and beautifully furnished suites, all with absolutely awesome ocean views. The hotel boasts a massive natural stone infinity pool, a state of the art fitness studio  and tennis courts.

This comes at a very reasonable price and if you want amazing views, stunning designs and fantastic sunsets this may be the place to book!
