HELP - nice resorts with Villas

We are planning to go to Samui on 3-10 January. Flights already booked. After lots of research and time spent on internet, we made a reservation through www.sawadee.com for a delux villa at the Jasmine Samui Resort, Lamai Beach. We paid the deposit. Now that they have taken our deposit, they say they are fully booked. They said we can have a standard room, but we would prefer a villa. Has anyone else experienced this unreliability with sawadee?

Also - can anyone recommend good resorts that have good villas on Chaweng or Lamai (or other decent beaches). Budget upto 5500THB.

Your help v much appreciated.

Not the best time to change hotels due to peak season.....Sawadee should be able to help as they are normally very reliable. If you are flexible with the beach, try Bophut Resort or Bandara Resort in Bophut for villas at/near beach.

Sawadee sorted us out with a room at the same resort. Am a little disappointed as I wanted to stay in a villa and thought it was a little rude taking our money and raising expectations, and then being let down. Oh well. Ko Samui - here we come!!!

Try Baan Haad Ngam.

we just came back after a 5 days stay. Good for couple only. Not for family with kids.

Short beach but you can walk along to other beach.

Coffee is good here.

Check out their web site.

Oh yes, the 2 hotels recommended by Saweed are very far from the centre and not much activities. Of course, it is quiet.
