Arrow ► Koh Samui

first time going to koh samui staying 4 nights.

for those that visited, which side of the island do you recommend staying?
i am currently debating conrad (south) and ritz (north). conrad seems more secluded and smaller in size while ritz looks like a massive resort.

recommendations on food, places, and activities?

thanks guys .

just stay away from the center of the island, that's where all the big predators are

The Conrad wins hands down. It will be one of the most unique resorts you've ever stayed at. It is a bit secluded, though, but there are good restaurants within 15 minutes.

Thumbs up

If you're going with family / others the 2 Presidential Villas at the Nora Buri Resort are great. Way up at the clifftop, but the butlers prioritise the residents of those premium villas when it comes to the golf cart taxis. The beach front area/pools/etc. are great.. EXCEPT... the actual beach is quite rocky and not conducive to use. Short north to Choeng Mon beach if you want sand and waverunners.

The Pres. Villas had 4 bedroom, 2 private pools, live-in maid, full kitchens stocked with whatever you want daily, ... the view is beyond amazing... Not very expensive at all. We were going to get a pair of junior suites at the Four Seasons, but so happy we found these at Nora Buri for about the same but way better/bigger. (Not the whole FS experience, but close.)

The Anantara Lawana resort has that really cool Tree Tops restaurant. The resort is nice too. Our friends stayed here and we dined at the Tree Tops. Good food, great service... it's not Ultra Violet, but very enjoyable even for a foodie we had in tow.

Have fun.
