Booked this with Avios vouchers - so not out of pocket. Hotel was okay - but nothing special. Seems like it was built in the sixties or seventies - very outdated. Lots of concrete areas - looking a bit like a concentration camp. Not at all picturesque - the building that is - the grounds were nice. Right on the beach, with lots of bars and restaurants close by, so very convenient. Didn't use the pool, but it looked nice. Lots of massage places along the beach. Walked into Chaweng at night which was fantastic. Easy few minute walk and you are right in the thick of it. Too many bars and restaurants to choose from! Fabulous! We sat on a big bean bag on the beach and listened to some funky house tunes at Ark Bar - definitely one to visit.
The beach immediately outside the hotel is lovely, very warm and very shallow sea for a long way out. Sand is soft and powdery. Bit busier than other beachs on the island - but great for a couple of mad nights!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- ConceptOnce upon a time, in the ancient kingdom of Muang Kulaypan, Java lived the beautiful Princess Budsaba and her brave Prince Panyee - a great warrior and lover. Their love story played muse to folk legend and dance, which travelled over the oceans to the Royal Courts of Ancient Siam. Muang Kulaypan, Koh Samui has drawn inspiration from the legend from which it derives many of its unique architectural traits ensuring the legend of the Budsaba and Panyee still live on today.All rooms and suites surround the expansive landscaping of the Muang Kulaypan central gardens, swimming pool and stretch of golden sand as the shallow cool waters of Chaweng Beach lap against the shoreline. The accommodation buildings merge seamlessly and effortlessly with the lush green foliage, whilst unique sculpture's and artifacts pose scattered throughout the grounds. The raw design and distinct use of culture provide the resort with a timeless appeal and guests an impression of true sanctuary. Location Nestled at the northern entrance to Chaweng Beach, Koh Samui's premier tourism arena, Muang Kulaypan provides convenient access to shopping, activities and nightlife without overcrowding or congestion. This ideal location is within a mere ten minute drive from Koh Samui International Airport. ... more less
