Last year we decided to spend at least a month in Thailand. Finally two weeks went on holiday in Koh Samui. We also spent time in Phuket.
We chose the seaview villas called Contemporary Heaven on Amazing Tropical Luxury Villas website because of the direct pool access and amazing views of the sea. This spacious appointed villa commands spectacular panoramic ocean-views across the island, northward to Koh Phangan and the famous Ang-Thong Marine Park.
The 2-bedroom apartment costs about €460 per night, which is very value for money if you’re travelling in a family!
The Agency was very helpful, by the time we arrived the rented car was waiting at the airport. (Koh Samui is hilly surroundings I suggest renting a proper jeep car.) We were just happy to be settled into our accommodation after a long trip.
As we planned to stay for a month then we looked at some things in advance.
