We went to Samui for our daughter's wedding. She chose the island after staying there 3 years ago. We could have stayed with friends, but decided that after 35 years together we deserved a bit of luxury! We chose Peace as we knew the area - we stayed near Bophut before - and the wedding was at the Anantara, "3 doors up". In fact most of the family were in the 4 hotels next to each other. Cosy.
It was wonderful. On arrival, we were taken to our bungalow, the Standard, but within minutes were told our AC was faulty, and we were being upgraded to the Garden Wing. It was fantastic, a large bedroom with a bed you could play 5-a-side on, an outside (but private) bath, and an exceedingly spacious WC/shower room. The only criticism I have is the lack of closet space, 1 single wardrobe for 2 of us for 3 weeks?
The staff were marvellous. Friendly, helpful, always greeting with a 'sawadee'. One lad in particular went out of his way to ensure we (4), had sunbeds every day, and even got his mates to move the beds to a shady area if none were available - no mean feat as the beds are solid wood!!
One caveat, the menu prices in the bar and restaurant are slightly misleading. They add service charge and VAT to all costs, so the bill mounts up without you realising, unlike anywhere else I know on the island. A snack with a couple of drinks can cost £10!
Fishermans' Village has changed since our last visit, but the stalwarts are still there. 'The Pier' is new, flashy, but has good food (15% discount vouchers from Peace), Larry's 'Shack' has the best steaks I've ever tasted, and '56' has the best gourmet fusion anywhere. All reasonably priced. In fact, I could recommend almost all of the restaurants there.
For authentic Thai you must try No115, on the road to Chaweng, just before Big C. It was unbelievable. 12 of us dined and drank our fill, for about £15 each!
BTW, if you like chill, avoid Chaweng like the plague. A nice place to visit - and particularly shop - but too noisy, too hot, too smelly. 'The Taverna' is a superb Italian, but 'Rice' is overpriced and a bit up itself.

After much research through TripAdvisor, and WikiTravel, I settled on Koh Samui as the surprise location for my honeymoon. Peace Resort is located in the perfect part of Koh Samui for such a trip!

The resort is beautiful, and we had a ground floor room. It was amazingly designed - and felt very open. There was a brilliant roman bathtub outside the room - that almost felt like you were bathing outside and in public.

The staff were very attentive and extremely courteous with that infectious Thai smile!

If you want to rent a car though - don't do it through the hotel, their rates are higher than they should be, and there is a small agency on the right as you exit the hotel. They do great day trips and lease cars for great rates. I forgot the name of the agency - but it shouldn't be too hard to find, and is run by a nice guy from London.

This resort is definitely recommended for a romatic honeymoon. It was absolutely incredible!

A nice place to stay in an amazingly beautiful scenic garden. Staff are friendly, especially Tin Tin, love that name!

The breakfast was good, though I only made it once!

A nice quiet location. Fishermans Village was a 20 minute walk or cab for £2.

Main issue was air conditioning didn't work for 3 nights, finally got moved to another amazing room on fourth.

I would recommend this hotel as a good place to stay. Snorkelling is not good round here though.

Situated on Bophut beach in the northeast of the island, the Peace Resort is a newly refurbished, friendly bungalow style resort, ideal for a relaxing family getaway.
