What a find this was. We booked through Agoda after a lot of searching and cross referencing. We decided to pay a little more for a deluxe room - but it only came to £35 a night. On arrival we were very impressed - the gardens are very well kept, and they have hammocks which is a lovely touch. There are also garden swings overlooking the beach. Our room exceeded our expectations - we had a little kitchen (fridge, freezer, microwave) and an amazing bathroom. Everything was clean and worked just fine. We found the staff very friendly and eager to share their knowledge of Samui - from their recommendations we ended up at the Jungle Club and the Secret Garden. The area itself has some really great cheap local restaurants - we ate at these places most of the time. The cafe just opposite (I think it called itself the Coffee Cup) did a great massaman curry for about 80 Baht. Asides from the restaurants, the area is a little remote in that you can't walk to many things - you can just about walk to the Fisherman's village, but that's about it. We rented a moped from the shop right next to the hotel (200B for 24 hours) and this worked very well. We saw the whole island during our trip, and the hotel were helpful in organizing trips to Koh Tao and Anthong for us.
Overall - this was a great place to stay as a couple. If you're looking for a honeymoon destination in Koh Samui - you couldn't go far wrong with Samui Pier.
