Help please - Tongsai Bay or Napasai resorts

Posted by ndecost1 on 14/6/2007 at 05:10

Thanks to those of you who responded to my recent forum. We are deciding between Tongsai Bay Cottages resort in Choengmon beach OR Napasai (an Orient Express Hotel) on Ban Tia beach near Maenam. We are totally stuck between the two. Any recommendations you have would be appreciated. This is for our honeymoon so we want the must luxurious place possible with a beautiful and clean beach. We don't care much for the nightlife - just a beautiful resort with great amenities. I was referred t ...

Looking for a paradise around Samui and surrounding islands...

Posted by chaimdan on 12/6/2007 at 22:19

Hi Guys, My wife and I with our baby will be traveling to Thailand in August and are planning on spending 6 days in Samui or one of the surrounding islands. We are looking for a place that is great for relaxing, picturesque, quiet or private beach, hammocks, nature, nice sand (basically what you see in the Thailand Tourism - TAT pictures)... originally was planning on maybe hopping over to Ko Tao for a couple of days but now it sounds like it's pretty much busy there and not sure about natura ...

20 things to think about when visiy#ting Thailand

Posted by khunwilko on 30/5/2007 at 14:35

Here are 20 things to think about when visiting Thailand… 1. Bring a cell phone “unblocked” and buy a Thai SIM card for it on arrival, they’re cheap (apprx. 250 baht) and include some credit already on them - e.g. - International calls to UK are about 5 - 8baht per min… 2. Money - Bring ATM and/or credit cards. - check fees and tell your bank your are going abroad. - Take Travellers cheques only as back-up. Bring very little cash (Baht) – you tend to get a better rate of exchan ...

? Ban Tai beach, Koh Samui (Napasai resort) ?

Posted by ndecost1 on 12/6/2007 at 21:02

Forgive me, but I just learned that Ban Tai beach is on the western hook of Maenam beach. So I'm curious, since I now know that Maenam is a more yellow sand beach (as opposed to Choeng Mon which is white) and Maenam can be course sand in places. Is anyone familiar with Ban Tai beach? Or familiar with Napasai resort? Is it nice sand? Clear sea? We like swimming in the sea rather than pools. Tiny pebble sand won't bother us, but we'd prefer to not stay if its very rocky. Thank you. This is ...

Koh Samui - Choengmon or Maenam beach - better?

Posted by ndecost1 on 12/6/2007 at 02:37

Which beach do you prefer? Choengmon or Maenam beach? Not for night life or anything like that. Just for a pure beautiful beach to swim in, relax by, and enjoy? We're looking for clean and clear water. We are considering 2 resorts at each. Sala Samui resort and Samui Peninsula are located on Choengmon beach. Napasai and Santiburi are on Maenam beach. Although, Napasai says it's on the Ban Tai beach, which apparently is near Maenam beach. Your opinions are much appreciated. This is for ...

North Thailand - out of the beaten tracks

Posted by cybervlad on 6/6/2007 at 16:00

Hi all, I plan to visit Thailand again :) in the November 07. This time I want to pay attention to North. There is enough information about Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Golden Triangle and so on. Also I want visit "highland" people (hill tribes), but I don't want to visit "human zoo" villages, where people posing for photo all day long. I want to see real live. Does anyone suggest right direction? :) p.s. I plan to rent a car, so long distances are not problem for me. ...
