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.
