Samui Honey Cottages

Samui Honey Cottages sits towards the eastern end of Choeng Mon, just before the spit of sand juts out towards the blip of Ko Fan Noi, and offers reasonable flashpacker to midrange lodgings.

It's set between Island View to the west and Kirati to the east (though it has additional rooms on the far side of Kirati) and, while it is arguably the best of the three, none of these are outstanding. If you want to be on the beach on Choeng Mon, these are the most affordable.

Honey has a raised but small pool at the centre of the main property, but it's more a pool for splashing around in or sipping a cocktail than swimming laps in. Bungalows are typical Ko Samui fare: white concrete with green tiled roofs, and inside firm beds with white linen, and decent air-con and spacious hot-water bathrooms. Amenities include satellite TV, safety box and minibar. They have some garden bungalows hidden around on the far side of Kirati that are slightly more affordable, but we'd say the bungalows near the pool are worth the extra money. We found the staff to be approachable and friendly.

The resort has an unpretentious feel, and offers a great social scene on the beachfront, with a well-stocked bar, a pool table, chill platforms in the shade, and sun loungers closer to the water for sun worshippers. Their main restaurant sits about 100 metres from the bar around the bend (past Kirati), with tables on the beach and under a thatched sala. Prices, even for Choeng Mon, are very high for the standard.

If you're looking for something more affordable, consider friendly Island View Bungalows; their rooms are a considerable drop in quality though they do have some near-windowless budget rooms, the cheapest we saw by the beach on Choeng Mon. Kirati, next door to the east is near interchangeable with Honey Cottages. Honey, Kirati and Island View are all owned by members of the same family, which is why they are somewhat intermingled. We were quoted a little less as a walk-in than the rates they list on their website.
