Koh Samui : best beach..Lamai beach??

Hi,

I'll be staying in Koh Samui for a short week soon...my first time! So where to stay?

I 'd like crystal clear water....sandy beach nearby town with rests shops markets...

I read that Lamai beach is the best choice...I really don't want to end up in a "Patong" town..but on the other hand not a n isolated resort far from everything...

How far is it from the Airport??

Any particula resort to reccomend?

Thanks in advance!

I always found the girlie bar area totally out of place for Lamai. It's like finding a little village in the country with a red light district!

hi plep. we stayed at the Sala Samui on cheong mon we loved it, not cheap but worth every cent. Fantastic service, lovely beach and the breakfast was the best i have had anywhere. A five minute walk to the local shops and restaurants. also places to eat on the beach. We cant wait to go back. regards dianne

Just returned from the area and sorry I have to disagree, the girlee bars are all over the the area including the front street. The girls are clothed all be it skimperly dressed. There are some okay bars in the area but I did tire of the area after a couple of days.
