Hi off to samui in september like the look of lamai and choengmon but cant decide where to stay. Looking for either a nice luxury resort or if poss a nice thai style beachvilla. I have come across the likes of sala samui etc which looks fab but at a price of 280 dollars a night? has anybody been to sala and turned up at the door and negotiated a cheaper rate, is this possible. any advise appreciated, cheers, cj.
