Hello I'm looking for recommendations of an area to stay in Koh Samui and then also some hotels / resorts.
We are going in September for eight nights.
This will be our second trip to Koh Samui - the first time we went at the same time of year about 2 years ago and stayed at Bhundari spa resorts and villas (which was close to the airport at the Northern end of Chaweng??).
We are in our early 40's and we liked this area very much, close enough to Chaweng to get there by scooter but not in the crazy hectic part. (We didn't like the look of the crowded beaches at Chaweng during the day) .The hotel was lovely too, quiet but with good service and pools etc. Food and drinks etc were v.reasonably priced.
We didn't really get to explore the island last time as much as we would have liked to and we were thinking of trying a different hotel (but with the same vibe) and the same kind of distance from shops. bars,nightlife. Any suggestions - we would probably look at spending around 45,000 baht for the eight day stay.
I have been looking around at websites but I dont really know many of the other areas and as we had such a nice stay last time I want to make sure this time is just as good or even better!
