Review ~ Baan Saitara Villas, Koh Samui

A few weeks ago we flew to Koh Samui for a few days. Flying direct with Bangkok Air is more expensive than doing the Nok Fly N Ferry option but in theory should save you about half a day each way – when your only going for four days this was precious time. We usually…

Anantara Lawana ~ Revisited

On Friday afternoon we left school and headed straight for the airport to catch our flight to Koh Samui. We were spending the weekend at the Anantara Lawana where we spent our honeymoon in January. If you missed my original review of the resort, you can find it here. If you follow me on Instagram you…

The Weekend Beach Edit

We’re heading off to Koh Samui this afternoon for an early anniversary weekend at the hotel we went to for our mini moon back in January.

We spent quite a long time researching hotels; often inevitably put off by terrible TripAdvisor reviews, even on the…

Koh Samui: Simple

Bangkok traffic is notoriously mental. I fully appreciate that fact now after very nearly missing our flight to Koh Samui this morning. Thanks to the calm, speed demon (where possible, given the bumper to bumper traffic) taxi driver we arrived just in time to Don Mueang Airport….only to be greeted by the mother of all…
