i booked a villa at Beach republic because i was attracted to the privacey of having my own private infinity pool in my own walled garden. Their are not many hoetls if any on samui offering these private facilities where you can spend ten days wearing nothing at all, getting a great tan on and without offending anyone with my man boobs in a public pool! briliiant! Down on the beach 20 seconds from my villa is a cool as hell set-up, looks and feels like a ritzy beach club in St Tropez, massive pool, great cocktail service - lots of good, well informed staff, service is five star and it looks like a theyve employed a hot crowd from a magazine shoot!! The poolside beachclub is available to anyone who rocks up from the beach, no charge and no need to be a resident which helps keep the vibe not too stuffy or too exclusive - The food is a nice mix of european style tapas, authentic thai and as a foodie who eats out 5 days a week in some of melborunes best, for the fact that its on an island, i was really surprised by the quality, presentation and offering - the foods great - try the lamb chili con carne with crispy 8 inch tortillia strips or the BBQ seafood plate with phukett lobster - or the gigantic lamb shank in massaman curry sauce with potatos - at around $25 australian dollars, seriously good value - plus i was able to order a very good , under-priced bottle of french rose from a massive, educated wine list. i would never order wine from a Samui resturtant as its usually over-priced crap you would wash your car with - but they seem to have got it really right here - i was also stunned to find a really nice selection of cuban cigars on offer - again, at less than id pay at my reg shop in melbourne - don't know how they do it, lets hope they dont see this review before im back again! But the best bit about this place is the staff - its almost like ive had a team of butlers at times - theyve done everything from pumping up my pool infatable to driving to macdonalds at 2am and grabbing me some drunk junk to fixing my head in the mornings with asprins and an amazing breakfast. Finally! Service! i do not identify with the negative reviews about this joint, all i got was brilliance!
