We're thinking of going to samui right at the beginning of September for our honeymoon, after spending a few days sightseeing in Bangkok.
Just a few concerns, we don't want to stay in Chaweng, too noisy and overdeveloped and were thinking of somewhere quieter like bophut and the bophut resort and spa, as we like the idea of being able to easily walk out of the resort and go for dinner/drinks.
One problem is that I've heard the beach at bophut isn't great for swimming and my fiancé loves open water swimming and we both love snorkelling.
Is the beach at bophut really that bad? Any other recommendations in samui? Or anywhere else in Thailand?
