Traveling end December so will be there around Christmas time. Wondering whether I should stay in chAweng or a bit further near bophut beach at the mantra Samui resort? From what I've read the mantra is a 10 min car ride to bophut beach and 15-20 min ride to central chaweng. I was looking for a hotel that's not too isolated but not too noisy either. Getting a great deal on the mantra which is why I'm wondering if I should just stay there? They have 22 shuttles daily to take guests to and fro between the hotel and bophut and chAweng beach.
we are in out early 30s but also have a 7 month baby.
