Ko Samui - Best time to visit?


I've put off going to Ko Samui in November from fear of being rained on for the whole 2 weeks. Can anyone tell me when the best time to visit is? I've read there is very little rainfall in February? Is this true?

Also, thinking about the Baan Samui in Chaweng. Any comments on this hotel would be appreciated.

We have stayed for 3 weeks in February and it didn't rain once.As long as you travel out of the Oct-Jan monsoon you will have great weather.

Weather no problem, sunshine all the way.As for Baan Samui, it's just another good 4 starish hotel from what I've heard. Whether you want to stay in Chaweng or not would depned on what kind of atmosphere/ambience you are after.One thing is for sure - if you spend alot of beach time there be prepared to be approached every 30 seconds or so from a 'vendor' selling well..... anything you could possibly want actually.
