Koh Samui is an old hand when it comes to holidays - it was the go-to island back when Thailand first started making waves on the travel scene. Visitors were originally drawn in by its white-sand beaches, nodding palms and first-rate snorkelling and diving. Nowadays, you can add luxury hotels, gourmet restaurants and slick beach clubs to the mix.
Chaweng is the liveliest resort on the island, with a big helping of restaurants, late-night bars and shops. The beach is one of Koh Samui's best, too. If you prefer things a little quieter, but still want amenities on hand, head a little way down the coast to Lamai. On the north coast, Bophut has a village feel, with lots of small cafés and restaurants (some right on the sandy beach), as well as shops selling handicrafts and local art, while Mae Nam has a huge, palm-edged sandy beach and a peaceful, laid-back feel.

We've just returned from another two week holiday at Tongsai Bay and once again we couldn't fault a thing. It was lovely to see all of the staff again, along with many other returnees. Our greeting upon arrival was "Welcome Home". We enjoyed many meals in all three restaurants and were spoiled by the menu selections. Breakfasts, as always, were a fabulous array of choices to suit all tastes. The Prana Spa provides amazing massages & treatments.

We have stayed at Tongsai Bay a number of times over the last 8 years and this year???s stay was as good as ever. The beach was lovely and the sand seemed a little less course than we recalled from previous visits and although the sea was a little too rough for safe swimming on a number of days, the pools remained as delightfully inviting as ever.
We stayed in a Sea Front room which gave super views across the bay towards Choeng Mon (the local village) and out to sea. The room was furnished in a Thai style which we liked and the room maid service, including evening `turn down` was of a good standard.
Food was good and we much enjoyed Chef Chom Thai restaurant on a number of occasions and, in particular, we found the newly introduced Curry Pot nights to be excellent; these included your choice of a number of cooked for you Thai curries and a very good Thai folk singer who sang and played a number of traditional Thai folk songs.
We went into Choeng Mon on a number of evenings and used the hotel provided taxi service to and from the village. Vehicles were modern and safe with working seat belts and good drivers and the taxis were reasonably priced.
We have pondered over the years as to what keeps calling us back to stay at Tongsai and we have still been unable to put our finger right on it. The hotel staff, from the fantastic staff in Chef Chom at breakfast and dinner, the superb beach staff, the equally good Polad restaurant and beach bar staff and the very good reception and housekeeping staff, are undoubtedly a key element of our desire to return year after year. The fantastic sea views from the beach, rooms, Chef Chom and Polad are another key element as are the lovely hotel gardens and abundant wild life (the bird song in the mornings and early evenings was lovely this year). The hotel just simply has a magic all of its own and the sum of the above elements come together to provide that extra something that makes this hotel irresistible to us and to many other returning guests. Thank you Tongsai for another lovely holiday,
