I cannot say enough great things about this wonderful and mystical place!! I simply loved it!
For true relaxation away from the mundane and "typical", boring hotel experience, Samai is the place to be! Not only the lodge is strategically placed on top of a hill from which you have the most amazing view of tropical forest and the ocean. Additionally, the peace, calm and soothing atmosphere and incredible joyful/generous hospitality of the manager/owner will make you feel like wanting to stay there forever!
As if this wasn't enough, they also offer special rooms for massage and/or yoga practice. As a Yoga practitioner that I am, I felt I have found heaven on earth! The place envites to truly connect with your-Self and with nature...deeply! Love their concern for the environment and the animals who surround the gorgeous and delicately decorated rooms. I am planning on returning for an extended stay, hopefully in early 2014. :-) One last thought: This is not a place for just anybody, that is for sure! Is for the special ones who truly appreciate nature, and are looking for real peace/relaxation and sane fun. :-)
