Koh Samui Thailand

Our recent trip to Koh Samui Thailand was the perfect weekend getaway. A short direct flight from KL via Firefly Subang to Koh Samui we discovered magnificent luxury hotel resorts for the ultimate chillaxing pampering vacation.

HANSAR SAMUI RESORT:

Hansar Koh Samui is Situated just 10 minutes from the Island’s International airport, Hansar Samui is located on the tropical stretch of golden sands and turquoise waters of Koh Samui’s up-market Bophut Bay, which offers a front seat to island life.  A leisurely stroll down the quaint cobblestone ‘walking street’ adjacent to the resort, is the vibrant Fisherman’s Village, with its antique wooden shop fronts, chic cafes and atmospheric seaside bars. Hansar Samui offers luxurious, beachfront, spacious accommodation with unobstructed sea views from every room, and supersize private balconies and oversize daybeds for outdoor living and chillaxing.

SIX SENSES SAMUI: 

The luxuriously appointed Six Senses Samui is set around a gently sloping headland on the northern tip of Samui Island amongst 20-acres of indigenous vegetation that ensures maximum privacy while offering uninterrupted, breathtaking panoramas to the Gulf of Siam and outlying islands.

Pangkor Laut Resort

We recently had a wonderful weekend getaway to YTL’s Pangkor Laut Resort located on the West Coast of Malaysia. With a seriously impressive list of awards and accolades to its name such as Best Spa Resort (Winner) CNNGo! 2011; Best Luxury Destination Spa  World Luxury Hotel Awards, 2011; Best Hotel voted by SLH Club Members Small Luxury Hotels of The World, 2009 - it’s no surprise to you that we often recommend this hotel to our friends overseas.

Pangkor Laut Resort is located on the privately owned island of Pangkor Laut off the West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, it is a tropical isle with rocky outcrops and white sandy beaches fringed by a beautiful rain forest. We recommend the Spa Villa with your private water chalet and balcony. We spotted all sorts of wildlife from giant monitor lizards to hornbills on the resort. Great dining facilities and our faves were Fisherman’s Cove and Uncle Lim’s Kitchen for dinner and lunch at Royal bay Beach Club. Of course we also visited the Spa Village which is world renowned doing their signature Bath House ritual.  See why we loved it so much! It’s the ideal romantic retreat.
