    Anyone have any advice on higher-end resorts on Koh Samed? I've stayed on a more secluded private beach (which was absolutely amazing) but would prefer to stay on the more populated beach (Had Sai Kaew, I believe). I tried the Grand View Resort, and it was nice, but the beds were horrible. I'd prefer a different place if anyone has any suggestions?

    Thanks as always!

    I hate an unanswered thread MOTO.
    Look, I haven't stayed on first beach, but my Feb 08 visit there saw lots of Russian package visitors on that beach - which suggests a reasonable number of midrangers at least. No doubt you have checked TRAVELFISH'S accommodation page on Samet - but I think there is also a recently revised $3 (or whatever) purchasable TRAVELFISH GUIDE TO SAMET which if it is anywhere as good as the recent PHI PHI pay version, will give you all the info you need.

    The beach itself I reckon, although busy, is quite nice. And heaps of those tables on the sand with candles at night which I'm a sucker for.
    Having said that, I feel there are much nicer beaches to the south. Someone said the recently completed headland bungalows of a TRAVELFISH favourite, Tubtim on Putsa/Pudsa/Tubtim Beach are real high end. Lovely and quiet beach, but close to more social beaches if you want nigh-life.
