I love the Renaissance chain by Marriott and for those of you that don't know it then a few words, the hotels are small and boutique like, usually inspired by the location.
Our hotel in Koh Samui has lovely suites and villas tucked elegantly within beautiful gardens and a absolutely gorgeous swimming pool over flowing onto the beach.
The beach is beautiful but there is a reef about 150 meters out so the water is just above the ankles until then, in short no swimming here.
Not ideal for kids, very chilled but unless your kids are satisfied by style and beauty with no kiddies room or typical kids activities, then its not for them. Hence you wont find that many children here.
Staff are all very friendly and helpful, in general the Thai people are kind and warm.
Food is ok, prices are very high (350 baht for BLT or Pad Thai) so if you spend a similar amount you can eat "gourmet" on the island, which I have heard is very much available.
We hired a 4X4 (old but does the job) for under 1000 baht, from a guy nearby the hotel. Having freedom to explore the island is very important if you actually want to swim in the sea or taste authentic Thai food.
