As Bangkok still feel unsafe to visit.
My family decided to stay at the biggest Thailand island again. We stayed 5 nights in Banyan Tree and 3 nights at four seasons on the opposite side of the island.
July is rainy seasons for Samui, the best month of visit will be Jan to Apr according to villa host
As a return guest I got a better seaview villa than last visit. The villa layout is the best, i would say it is better than Four Seasons, although the latter have a bigger in villa pool, room and outdoor rest area like cabana. but i really like the living room long bench sofa where you could stay and play with family before you go to bedroom.
new value added services is i got a mobile phone which i could call my villa host at anytime anywhere around the island. That is very impersive, you dont need to buy a sim card for local use.
Food quality is great, i like the variety choice of breakfast at Edge and dining at Saffrons is amazing. Beaches side Sands snack is just great and reasonable.
Kid club facilities need to enhance and other recration may considers insufficient such as a tennis court, increase non-motor sport at beaches
Staff are friendly and helpful, i would rank 4 out of 5, better english training is required.
