Koh Samui Thailand Honeymoon in late November
Posted 14 May 2010 - 11:22 AM
I have never been overseas and I am a bit hesitate to say the least but after having a look at some of the resorts online last night I think it would be great.
So just wanted to know if any of you lovely ladies have and experience there or know any stories etc, or places to stay.
Any help would be great. Thanks heaps in advance.

My DH and I went to Koh Samui in the middle of October for our honeymoon (middle of the wet season) and it was just lovely.
We had one night where it rained, and i think that it may have rained 2 afternoons for about 15 mins each time. It was brillant. It actually cooled it down a lot!
We stayed at: http://www.bandarasamui.com/villas.php
We had a villa and it was great.... own little plunge pool, out door shower and bath and the staff are so friendly.
Koh Samui is more for people on their honeymoons and for couples, where as Phuket is more for young families and younger people!
Hope you pick somewhere nice to stay!

If you like the idea of swimming in the ocean, lots of Chaweng Beach (the main beach) has rocks in the shallows and is not really suitable. The best bit is down the south end of the beach, which is where we stayed (DH's stipulation!) There are a few other beaches that are less busy that are good to swim at. Its about 5 mins by taxi from Chaweng south into the centre of town, for B200.
Other recommendation would be the Argentinian Churrasco (sp?) steakhouse in Chaweng. We ate there several times. Absolutely AWESOME.
We just stayed in a mid-range hotel, was the end of our trip and we knew we'd be spending all day on the beach anyway. And out on the beach you can shop from the comfort of your deckchair, dudes even bring cooler bags of icecream around We never found the hawkers annoying, they were all lovely. Other places I've been they are much more forceful.

We honeymooned there November last year - weather held out for most of the time we were there - have to admit we were so glad to be staying in Bophut away from Chewang Beach - was insane and we kept being harassed on the beach to buy drugs DH was like DO I LOOK LIKE I'M A DRUGGO!! bahahahaa!!
We also went down to Fishermans Village most nights for dinner - Koh Samui Dream's fast became my fave cocktail We hired a car there as well - If its still there it's a little internet cafe/tour booking place on the right at the very start of the Fisherman's Village (if you're walking on the beach from Bandara to the end of Fisherman's village) they were so friendly! We hired a tiny suzuki jeep to start with and the 2nd time we went to hire a car there were none left so they let us use their own car - a FLASHO Pajero! I was too scared to drive it in case I scratched it up LOL!!
OHhhh - now i wanna go back there!!! So many great tours!! I don't think you'll be disapointed!!

What I didn't like was Koh Samui or Thailand itself. We thought it was so dirty and awful that we went on another honeymoon 6 months later to Fiji and LOVED it!!!
I personally think it was a waste of money to go to Thailand and wish we'd saved the money and stayed in the south pacific.

As others have said, Chewang is the busiest part of the island - lots of shopping, restaurants and resorts. Bophut was much quieter.
We enjoyed our stay, however preferred Phuket when we went there 3 years ago. We stayed at Karon Beach and it was stunning. Quiet, but a close tuk tuk trip to Patong Beach, and the beaches were amazing! White sand and clear water. We wont go back to Koh Samui again, but have already started looking at Phuket packages!
We found there was much more to do in Phuket, especially in the way of tours. If you wanted to go to Phi Phi or James Bond island you really need to be in Phuket. Koh Samui was nice, and was great for a nothing but sunbake and swim holiday which we did enjoy.
Just my 2 cents
