Koh Samui - Briza Beach versus Poppies versus Baan Samui

I am going to Koh Samui in August with a close friend - we are two girls in early 30s and want a luxurious setting and relaxing vacation. Does anyone have any recommendations in regard to which of the following would be best:

1. Poppies

2. Briza Beach Resort

3. Baan Samui Resort

4. Central Samui BEach Resort

THANKS!

The Briza looks fantastic.... It's almost new and on a nice and quiet part of Chaweng beach..... Lamai beach is the better beach for swimming... bit this part of Chaweng really is charming at night...

I did not stay at the Briza but next door at the Kandaburi a few weeks back.... and must tell you that if the rates were not so high at the Briza.. I'd love to stay there some time......

The Kandaburi is nice and if you stay in the 2nd. And 3rd. floor rooms you will have quite a nice sea and beach view.

The Amari Palms also looks nice... but beware ... some of the rooms are on the beach side of the road.... but as with several resorts on Samui.... most of the rooms are not... so you have to cross the road to get to the beach...

Hello

You might also want to have a look at Buri Rasa www.burirasa.com

It`s a small relatively new resort at the southern(quieter)end of Chaweng,lovely location,good beach conditions & a good selection of restaurant,shopping & entertainment options in the general area.

Also only a 20 min walk or 5 min songtaew ride from the centre of Chaweng.
