We stayed in a bungalow second back from the sea.
The size of the room is good and the bathroom was huge with a hot, powerful shower, much different to our time in koh phi phi.
The air con worked well and was quite.
There is a really nice outside area with a recumbent bench which can easily fit a couple.
The only negative of the room was that it attracts mosquitoes so be sure to bring strong repellent. We bought cheap stuff and got eaten alive.
Two free waters a day and breakfast included. Try the pancakes, really good quality meal.
The restaurant is good for snacks like the great spring rolls for 100.
Happy hour from 5-7 with cheap mojito and rum, but shuts at 8 so be prepared to buy beers at 7-11 or go 5-10 minutes along the beach to the several great bars on the front.
The snorkeling trip is well worth it for 750. No cheaper in town so buy from hotel and get 9-5 trip to four places including shark bay. Visibility is very poor in November though.
Easy to book boat trip back to Samui from here for around 700 per person with a taxi.
Best thing about hotel
Location. Five minutes from town
Free ferry Port pick up
Staff are amazing. Best We found in Thailand for service.
Beach is clean, clear sea. Warm and good for snorkeling.
Best hotel we stayed in Thailand and best island by far
