We stayed for 6 nights at Arayaburi which is a lovely quiet location away from the hussle and bussle of Bophut or Chaweng. The beach is lovely and the outside beach space is great for kids and families. We booked a beach front room but when we arrived the hotel said this wasn't available. They had actually given the beach front room to a wedding party. We were not best pleased as they had confirmed the booking via email. We talked to the staff and they promised us a beach front room the next day. We stayed in a garden room for one night which was nothing special. However the beach front room was amazing and so easy for me and my family to relax. The food was very good but expensive for Thailand. Breakfast wasn't the best, stewed coffee and strange selection of buffet food (sweet and sour fish, mashed potatoes and chicken nuggets for example). Bar drinks were expensive but they did have a happy hour, the minibar prices were reasonable and there is a local shop that sells beer, wine, nibbles and ice creams. The lady in the shop was great and when I didn't have enough to pay one day she let me pay next day.
The hotel runs a cheap taxi service which is invaluable if you want to go anywhere. These could be booked. Taxi's in Samui are expensive compared to other parts of Thailand.
Really relaxing stay and compared to the Six Senses resort which is situated nearby a fraction of the price.
