My husband and I are travelling to Koh Samui in the first week of September and would really like a place to relax (but not too far from the action). We were considering staying at the Intercontinental or the Renaissance. If anyone has been to either of these resorts, please share your experience? Also, I hear the weather and/or currents and tides may be very different on these opposite sides of the island. Any advice or tips would be helpful.
