some indulgence in samui

by genome408 about Santiburi

Though this place is a bit north of central chaweng and not even that close to any beach, this place is still a very nice place to stay. they have a goregous pool that looks like its endless (hard to explain, you must see it in person)

Koh Samui's Best Luxury Resort

by team_bush about SantiBuri Resort Mae Nam

The SantiBuri was amazing, from the minute we steped in the door welcomed with flowers and a pinnapple cocktail each. The Staff were extremely friendly and very eager to find out more about us.
It is situated out of the main part of Koh samui and you can really let yourself escape here, swinging between the palms in a hammock or on the beach with a cocktail made in some sort of fruit! The day spa is one of the best i have been to and the massage on the beach would have to be the best massage i have ever recieved! Highly recommended!

The Land of Smiles

"Our Northern Neighbour...."

Thailand is Malaysia's northern neighbour... just as Singapore is our southern neighbour...

I have travelled to Thailand since the early 1970s... but last visited the Kingdom in 2003.... Places that i have visited include the following:

Bang Pa-In
Bangkok (of courses)
Nakhon Pathom

In the 1970s, I usually go to Bangkok for my company courses which is held at the Asia Insitute of Technology (AIT) at 42km Phahon Yothin Road... During those days, we always look forward to hanging out in Bangkok over the weekends when there are no lectures...Those were fabulous days and we enjoyed ourselves tremendously (not at AIT but the Bangkok part, I mean)...

My last visit to Bangkok was some 5 years ago with a brief over-night stop en-route from Europe to Malaysia... No time for anything else except dinner and sweet slumber, after some 12 hours flight from Rome....

"Golf Courses in Thailand"

As a golfing destination, Thailand has a variety of golf courses... Golfing is Thailand is no longer cheap with green fees ranging from US$30 to US$300 for a round of 18-holes... Although a keen golfer, I have been giving Thailand golf courses a miss mainly because of the two tier green fees adopted by some courses... Yes, non-Thais have to pay more for playing golf in Thailand... Many course have a Sports Day as well as Ladies Day where promotion rates are given... Sports Day is normal on every Wednesdays... and Ladies Day can be any designated days...

With golf courses spread from the far north to the far south, this listing is grouped into regions...

the Santiburi Samui golf Club

by ketch1973

Hi Guys,

we are coming over to samui in december/january for a while and i fancy a few rounds of golf at the Santiburi Samui Golf Club. We will be staying in Bophut and looking at the map it doesn't seem too far away. does anyone know how long it takes to drive and maybe how much a return taxi would be? are there many tuktuk/ bhat buses around bophut around 7am?
many thanks for your help in advance.


Re: the Santiburi Samui golf Club

by robertson468

There are a variety of options open to you"

a. Go to Santaburi Hotel (about 3/4kms from Bophut) who run a shuttle up to the Golf Course .
b. Take a taxi directly to the Golf Course.
c. Rent a car for the day at about 800 baht (13ish pounds).

where to go in thailand & when

by angieburstow

ide like to go to thailand koh sumai sounds great we are looking to go for about 20 days,we dive & play golf and like keep fit we know the movenpick resorts have good facilities are there any there?,we would like to split the hols between 2 different places but dont know where to pick as it all looks soooooooooo fabulous

Re: where to go in thailand & when

by johnaalex

Check when you plan to travel to make sure you miss the wettest months as they are not good for either golfing or diving.



Re: where to go in thailand & when

by jamiesamui


I`ve never heard of the movenpick chain of resorts so can`t help you there.

As far as golf goes there is only one course on Samui,it`s around at Maenam at the Santiburi Resort.

It`s 18 holes & it`s fairly expensive by the time you take everything in.It will set you back around 6000 Baht.I think the game is around 4000 then you have to have a caddie then you tip him something & all the little other things they get you for there is not much change from 6000 THB. 6000 would be a fair amount to budget for.

Samui doesn`t offer much diving or snorkelling wise.I`m guessing diving is important to you so I would suggest that maybe you look at spending some time on Kao Tao which is an island maybe a couple of hours by boat from Samui.Koh Tao tends to be where serious divers head.

Also on the diving topic probably the best time for water clarity is April through to September.October through to xmas is probably best avoided as it is the wet season.

To recommend any resorts we would need to know your budget,likes,dislikes etc.

Hope this helps


Questions about Samui

by jpavlako

I have 2 questions:

1. Is it better to book a short stay on Samui ahead of time on the internet, or is it better to book the trip in Bangkok with one of the local travel agents? How can I get the best price?

2. Can someone suggest a hotel (4 star) in Samui? I will be travelling alone, so I prefer a hotel with a swimup pool bar/beach bar etc. where I could socialize with the other guests if I wanted and maybe where the guests are not all honeymooners - if this place exists at all in Samui....

Thanks in advance!

Re: Questions about Samui

by steffini

Sorry I can't give you any advice. I plan to go to Samui in July and do have the same questions as you.
When will you be there?

Re: Questions about Samui

by phiangpis

many hotels in koh samui.. u can find all kinds that u want there i guess... hot tub hot shower..jacuzzi..
Chaweng beach is more busy than other beaches....
During low season i think the price are not that different between booking on internet or with local agent...
maybe u can find some in there... : )

Re: Questions about Samui

by genome408

four star, i'd go santiburi,but it on the northside, away from most the nightlife., no beach either. there's another place with outdoor baths in every room, ( can't really remember the name right now) bu this place was mostyl honeymooners.

if it was me, i'd stay in chaweng beach. i really like the amari. ...

i'd would not really worry too much about the long as your a little smart about it. i mean whats the difference between 200baht a day or so right, especially when youre talking about 4 star places. if youre a backpacker, thas a bit different.

Re: Questions about Samui

by travelagent4thailand

defintitely go with the local travel agent! (not making sales pitch here, am i ? haha)

but defintiely, a wholesaler like ours...the interent prices may not always be updated and the hotels the interenet sells can give you the 'human' service and recommendation....that you may need.

if you like to have more info, write and i cen send you more details....

there are lots of excellent 4 star hotels such as the IMPIANA, SAMUI PALM BEACH, CENTRAL SAMUI VILLAGE, etc....

happy samuiing,

Re: Questions about Samui

by Robachu1

A good full service resort that I can recommend is the Tongsai Bay Resort. The only problem is that it will be closed for renovation Oct.1 thru Dec. 15, 2003. I also don't recall seeing to many single guests so it may be difficult for you to socialize as much as you may desire, but if you just want somewhere quiet to relax in peace and luxury then I can't think of a much better spot.

Travel Tips for Ko Samui


by Sajt

Be carefull with the spices. I don't like the hot chilly, but the real thai food is very spicy. I think Thai people know western people don't like chilly that is why they don't put so much in it. You have to ask for more or you can put in your food from your table. You will find lot's of spice on your table.Try it!

Spa Indulgence

by malbella

Ko samui has so many spas!'s really difficult for me to choose which spa i want to go too since the sources back in my hometown dosen't provide much info regarding ko samui not untill we reached samui airport and grab all the leaflets and not having much time to actually read what are provided and the reviews. Most spas comes in packages which can be very competitive in terms of price and what is included in the package.

And so we end up booking one at our the resort we are staying. The Quan Spa. I read that it's quite well known but only to disappoint myself that the oil massage is more of the fusion basis which i must say i don't quite like it because the massage is soft though they arsked if we wanted the strong one which is not that strong afterall. And on top of it the package we took includes 30 mins steam bath and javuzzi which i find 30 mins its just too short. 15 mins each....sigh!. Tamarind springs allows their guest to use their steam bath and jauzzi for as long as you want to so you can enjoy and no worries of rushing.
