Through Booking.com I happened upon a brand new hotel, La Perle- http://www.laperle-samui.com . La Perle (not to be confused with La Perla) had just opened that week so the rate was very attractive. The staff were full of smiles and eager to help with any request. Their talented chefs outdid themselves for me at brekkie. I had a fab week! Would have loved to stay longer. Cannot recommend this place high enough.
If you are a yogi or yogini and find yourself in Samui, check out Green Space. They have a morning session which includes use of the sauna and plunge pool. Well worth the Baht!
I have to say that Samui falls into my list of "favorite islands" but then I'm always looking for the next best island.
Thanks to Danyel for the chance to hang out and enjoy your little paradise.
