If you’re looking for paradise, look no further – we’ve found it at Choengmon Beach on Koh Samui, Thailand!
The Royal Muang Samui Villas have many fabulous room options. They range in price (to suit most budgets) and offer absolutr luxury to those seeking it. Regardless of your choice, all 79 rooms are tastefully decorated with a mixture of traditional and contemporary Thai styled décor. The spacious rooms are elegant and comfortable, including lovely touches to help ensure your stay is memorable.
We opted to stay in one of the Pool Suite Garden View rooms and we were not disappointed – in fact I loved it so much it was hard to get me out!
Our suite included a small but peaceful outdoor terrace and private pool which could be accessed both via the cute outdoor terrace area and conveniently through the bathroom area (which meant we didn’t need to traipse through our room whilst sopping wet).
The bathroom itself was probably bigger than my last apartment and included an amazing whirlpool jacuzzi. It was such a pleasure to relax in the spa bath whilst being treated to stunning views of the pool and garden.
We found our stay at Royal Muang Samui Villas not only to be luxurious but incredibly relaxing and fulfilling – an awesome getaway, without doubt.
The facilities at the resort are first class through and through.
Cave Rai Ra Beach Spa is a unique spot that’s beautifully styled. Located behind the waterfall in the pool area, treatments are provided in a cave-themed environment which is both inviting and exotic.
The spa is open from 10.00am – 10.00pm daily and offers various spa treatments and packages.
If your idea of relaxing requires a little more energy, there’s a well-equipped fitness room, kids corner and a complimentary shuttle service (offered four times a day to the sister beachfront resort in the bustling Chaweng Beach).
Not a villa resident lucky enough to have your own private pool? Don’t worry – there’s a beautiful swimming pool surrounded by tropical palm trees with an amazing view out to Choengmon Beach.
If the beach is more your thing, there are plenty of sun loungers. That’s not the best part though – wait until you spot the buzzer! If you’re in need of a refreshing drink, cocktail or a spot of lunch, give it a ding and your wish will be their command.
Does it get better than that?
Extensive Activities on Offer
Alongside these facilities, the hotel also offers an exciting activities programme – the details of which are communicated through a weekly newsletter which will be delivered to your room.
They have an enticing array of options that include basic Thai language and cultural classes, Thai cooking, learning to make flower garlands, bike tours, morning yoga classes and many more.
Unfortunately our limited stay didn’t give us time to try out any of the classes and we were highly disappointed to have missed the Thai cooking class the day we arrived. If you can make it into the kitchen, enjoy a delicious self-made curry for us!
To make your experience truly unique the hotel has a little floating market every Wednesday from 6pm – 11pm. The floating market gives guests a taste of an authentic, traditional Thai experience without having to leave the hotel (but of course you’ll want to venture further afield too!)
I’m intrigued to know how exactly they fit everything they promise into the tiny canal in front of the hotel but next time you can bet we’ll include a Wednesday in our stay to experience the exquisite food and local products on offer!
Cuisine to Write Home About
There are three restaurants onsite, offering a range of delicious food. After all, everyone knows meal times are one of the highlights of a good holiday!
Spice Zone, where you will find the breakfast buffet, provides a stunning setting to start your day. The view overlooks luscious gardens and the beach, inviting guests to savour the first light of day.
The buffet is your typical hotel buffet, including a various fresh juices, a selection of bread, pastries, breakfast cereals, cheeses, cold cut meats and fresh fruit. The hot section changes daily however it always has an egg station where they cook your eggs to order. If you’re keen to make breakfast that little bit more luxurious (and why wouldn’t you?) they have sparkling wine and a bloody Mary station!
We also chose to dine at Spice Zone one evening and loved the romantic beach setting. The soft light glowing lanterns and the beautiful music provided by two very talented vocalists whom were accompanied by a guitar made it a meal to remember.
Whilst the restaurant offers different deals and specials on different evenings we opted for the la carte menu and to try the local food – it was a great choice! Throughout the evening, the staff were extremely attentive and the extra gestures they made ensured we left happy.
You will also find Ciccio Ristorante & Pizzeria and Samui Sailor Grill & Restaurant at the resort, both serving up what looked to be delicious food!
