Thailand Part 8 - Koh Samui Tongsai Bay

Quite simply the best hotel on the island as far as I can see. We picked it for our honeymoon and didn't regret that decision at all. The prices are more similar to European prices but the hotel, the service, the villas and the food are out of this world.

The first photo shows the beach area. The Tongsai Bay has a totally private beach which is only accessible from the hotel grounds. There are two swimming pools, one down by the beach area and one higher up - this one is a half moon eternal pool and is absolutely beautiful to swim in.

The final shot is from the deck of a Grand Villa. We honeymooned in one of these and it was the most luxurious accommodation I have ever stayed in. The bed appeared to about the size of two Super King Sized beds, the dressing room and bathroom areas were vast and then you step outside to a huge suspended deck area with stunning views.

The description from the Tongsai Bays own website is as follows :

Tongsai Grand Villas are on the hillside facing seaview of Tongsai bay. Each has an area of 135 m2, divided into the open-air terrace plus living area of 81 m2 and the air-conditioned bedroom of 54 m2. The unique open-air terrace features a bar, a bathtub for bathing al fresco and a gazebo where guests could sleep outside if they wish (mosquito nets provided).

and yes we did use the gazebo and bathtub
