you can also travel indepentdently samui is very safe you find all you want in tripadvisor

aconnection to samui is normally bangkok airways you can book the fligjht cheapest from internet or you can boo a combined trai boat ticket from bangkok-surathanni-samui

or (cheap) by aisa air drom bangkok to suratahni and then by bus/boat to samui

Normally a booked hotel will pick you up from the feryy in nathon

Yes, why pay a lot extra for someone else to book what you can easily (and I mean really easily) book yourself. Just go to a travel agent in the UK (or do it online yourself), I used to like Trailfinders and book flights to Bangkok and then get direct flights from Bangkok to Samui return. Decide what sort of accommodation you want and how much you want to pay, ask questions on TA about different beaches etc and save yourself a heap of money.

There are a number of different beach areas to stay in Samui depending on what you like. Chaweng is pretty full on if you like to party, but South Chaweng is more laid back. Bophut is quieter with nice bars and restaurants in the evening. Choeng Mon is quieter again with a nice beach. There are others too.
