This hotel is the best on Lamai Beach area within walkin distance of everything. There are better hotels eg 5 star but they are not within the walking distance of Lamai beach shopping and entertainment as far as I could see. The hotel has the zen feeling and service and food is excellent. Great beach and not too many vendors to hassle you as I think the hotel keeps them off the imediate grounds. The rooms are nice but in need of some refurbishing as you can see the wear and tear on them. We booked a standard room and booked on line as you will get a great discount on the regular hotel prices. Book with Asia Rooms, Agoda or try hotelscombined.com. On arrival as many others have said on Trip Advisor we were upgraded to the next level room.
Unique Quality: Each room has a small but adequate plunge pool but not the standard rooms.
Directions: Positioned close to the entrance to Lamai beach.
I am planning a honeymoon to Thailand for September, 2004. As of right now, the plans are to stay two nights on Koh Samui at Pavilion Samui Resort and for four nights on Koh Nang Yuan and Nang Yuan Dive Resort.
Some resources identify September as a rainy month. Is the condition of the water at that time suitable for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving?
Also, if anybody has stayed at either of those resorts, can you please tell me a little bit about them from your perspective?
It's extremely difficult to predict the weather on Thailand's islands. No matter what you read there's always someone who will contradict a previous opinion citing their own experience in the same time frame. It will rain practically every day, you can just about count on that. As to whether the rain lasts 5 minutes or 5 hours or 5 days is anybody's guess. If it is raining hard, like a real storm, you can count on the water visibility being ruined and it will stay that way until the seas get calm again. After all, Thailand is a tropical country very near the equator. Rain is a daily fact of life.
do expect some rain....
rain nor shine....the sun will definitely come out on one of those days...
sometimes i tell travelers = it's the best of both worlds, especially for honeymoon.
the rain will keep you in and do the stuff mooners do and the sun, get your skin some colors...more interesting to go back indoors when it rains again...ha!
pavillion is not bad.
Well, i went to thailand in july, and some people said it would be rainy...actually we had some rainny days, but it did not ruin our trip...The water is still clean, and you can still do some snorkel, although you should be prepared for some small jelly fishes! yes, sometimes there are lots of them....they do no big harm...but for a time you´ll get your skin tickling a bit....= /
swim in the hotel pool, not in the sea.
Haven`t stayed at Pavillion but I can tell you 1 thing about it, when the war in Iraq broke out the management of this place barred Americans as their protest against it. I read this in the Bangkok Post. I am Australian & I don`t know if I`d want to stay there.
October to January is the wet season in the gulf of Thailand so it still should be o.k in Sept, however towards the end of Sept the weather will probably start to turn but there are no guarantees with Thailand weather.
Check my pages on Samui there might be something of interest for you.
