We have just returned to NZ from Koh Samui. We planned to spend four weeks in Thailand, three of these around Koh Samui, Koh Toa and Koh Phagnang and a few days in Bangkok. We started off in Bangkok and then three days later made our way to Koh Samui. We had no accommodation booked as we wanted to check out the property ourself before committing. We arrived in Koh Samui at 6:30pm, started off at the Iyara (where we had stayed previously) but after a cold reception we wandered into a neighbouring property, the Blue Lagoon. We were greeted by Achara who introduced herself as the Assistant Manager. My partner and I instantly warmed to Achara's friendly disposition, helpful manner and willingness to negotiate a good price for a room, she was just brilliant. However, we did want to compare with another property next door, the Amari. Eventually, after a "not that interested" reception at the Amari we decided to go back to the Blue Lagoon.
I am so glad we did. We had only intended to stay a week but we spent the whole three weeks of our vacation at this property. There were a few hiccups, to be honest, but these were addressed immediately by the staff. Our room was really good, good bed and bathroom/toilet and lovely clean sheets and towels every day. Great balcony with a view to the sea and pool. The property is beautifully landscaped and right on what we thought was the best part of Chaweng Beach because it is the quieter end and away from the very famous and noisy Ark Bar. I would hate to be down that end!!!
The swimming pool is probably the best around that area as it is huge and I would imagine in the busy season it would be essential to have a pool of that size. We did notice that a lot of the hotels along that strip do not have very large pools.
The breakfast is fantastic but best of all about the breakfast is the location of the restaurant the Cantara (right on the beach) And talking about the Cantara, we ate dinner there quite often and do recommend it. It is so romantic at night.
But most of all, what stood out for us during our stay at the Blue Lagoon, were the front of house staff. We felt like part of the family and didn't want to go. Achara and Laura..... thanks for making our stay so memorable. Art and Antoine thank you to you too.
Thank you for responding so quickly to our requests. We will return.
