We travelled to Koh Samui for our honeymoon in mid April. Staying at the Bandara for 9 nights was great way to relax and 'switch off' after a few stressful and busy weeks (married folk will know what I mean). We had a villa which was perfect to provide some space & privacy, particularly as the pools and beach are very family-friendly. we took advantage of the spa a couple of times, each visit was fantastic, just be aware they were resort prices. They are better than the spas you can visit in the towns though, so we found the extra cost well worth it. Having travelled all over Thailand before, this was among the best hotels we have stayed at. The breakfast spread is great, the staff are all very good and they put little touches on everything they do (e.g. our cleaner kept making different cute little animals with our towels). Upon booking as a honeymoon, they even put out a spread on arrival, bubbly, fruit platter, a congratulations cake and flowers all over the place.... It really made our day. The restaurant was also good, but there are cheaper comparable options in the Fishermans Village just down the beach. The activities on offer were good. Kayaking, windsurfing etc were all well done. We tended to buy beer & snacks from across the road which was very convenient as well. As per the previous review, there quite a lot of mosquitoes around (particularly around dusk & in the evenings) perhaps repellent candles etc wound also be a good idea for the villas (& balconies on other rooms) to assist, As I also found we got bitten even when applying spray liberally. The bed, whilst a king, was also quite hard, but this seems common at hotels nowadays. Aside from this, we had an absolutely amazing stay at Bandara. it's a great place to recharge your batteries, have a lot of fun and be well looked after. A tip: practice your 'connect four' if you plan on challenging the guys at the bar..... It's not just a game in Thailand!
