Hi we are looking to make our first family visit to koh samui next july and are considering Rockys boutique resort. I have never been to thailand and wanted to know if you can reccomend good local food, shopping and massage nearby.

http://www.sawadee.com/map/samui.htm'

have a look at the sawadee website (there are lots of others that people use but I like this one) and make sure you click on hotels tab rather than landmarks and zoom in. There are little blue buttons that look like snow flakes and these indicate nth, central and south chaweng. Hover over the red circles to see the hotel names. Or you can seach by locaiton on sawadee or by star ratings etc.

Also maybe look at cheongmon beach as there is still plently more to do there than rockys but a bit less than what sth chaweng has to offer. In Cheongmon the imperial boat house would be very Thai style and good for children.

As Pea says the Centara in Sth Chaweng would be great also as they have alot of childrens activities, big grounds,good pools, good beach, but I would not say it is authentic Thai looking it is more of a grand older hotel.

Maybe also have a look at banana fan sea, Samui Paradise Chaweng or Buri Rasa. Depends on your budget and expectations.
