Ko Samui(For Honeymooners)

Weather and honeymoon hotel,

Everybody says, Asia is not a place to visit in summer. It is totally bullsh**. Okay we landed to a rainy Samui but it was beautiful anyway.If you know how to get fun in Asia the weather is just a detail :) Let me give some detail first on weather: it is rain season between April- October. But, the east coast of the Thailand has less rain then the west coast. Why? because the west coast is on the side of open ocean. The rain system can reach to that part of Thailand easier. what about the west coast (Ko Phangan, Ko Samui, Ko Tao...) it is in the Gulf of Thailand. Therefore the rain system can not get in as west side of the mainland.

We went to Samui for our honeymoon. I was prejudiced against Far East. However i found myself standing in the airport with two tickets of Samui. It was about 12 hour flight to Thailand. But our Travel Agency made us a surprise and upgrade our flight tickets to business class with Emirates for free :)

A private bus took us from Samui Airport to Anantara Lawana Hotel. (It was about 12 minutes.) the first thing i remember was; the humidity. Normally, it disturbs me but the ambiance of the island and nature made me forget all about it. Our hotel was like a movie set. the rooms are barely seen through the greens and trees. We stayed in Deluxe Plunge Pool Villa. When we stepped in to our garden a fruit of bowl was waiting us just on edge of a little swimming pool. If you are looking for a honey moon holiday i highly recommend you Anantara Lawana Hotel with private pool.

The breakfast was amazing ; it is rich and fresh. You can find any kind of food for breakfast even if you are a kind of picky person on foods.

My favorite corner was: the fruit bar. You can drink fruit juice of local fruits every morning from the bar. That makes you feel full of power to trip the island.

What About Koh Samui:

It is the 2nd biggest island for tourism after Phuket. Ko Samui provides accommodation for any type of visitors. As i said it is a perfect island for Honeymoons and really great destination for backpackers either. Well i began that blog in July 2016 then i stopped writing for some reason. I can say that a lot of things changed and i got divorced :) yea that is true! i am advising you some honeymoon holiday but no worries you won't hear any word about how to relationships should be. :)))

Anyway, lets back to the business.

There are some other islands around Koh Samui( Ko Tao, Ko Phangan...) you can easily take the day trips. The prices are around 1600baht-2200baht (45usd-60usd) for p/p. It can be your honeymoon and you do not care about spending money but, do not forget to make negotiation. it is still your money :) if you don’t have time that much, i mean if you stay only for 1 week honey moon i suggest you to stay in the island only. if you have more then 10 days you can go some other islands like Ko Phangan and spend 2 days here. it is only 30 mins from Samui.(i will give more detail about Ko Phangan in my Ko Phangan article )


The best part of the island is the east side. The other parts are not good for swimming because of the tide. i highly recommend you that pick your hotel around the Chaweng Beach. Also all the bars, nightclubs and restaurants are based around the beach.

Night Life:

The Ark Bar is just on Chaweng Beach. You can lay down on Sunbed after 8 pm watch the fire shows, have your dinner, and drink some cocktails. If you prefer more romance, there are quiet and low light places in the both side of Ark Bar. You can choose one of them and still can watch the fireworks with your drinks.

Green Mango Club:

This is the only night club than you can dance till 3-4 am. Generally people go here after Ark Bar and all other small bars. There are also 3 different dance floors and you can enjoy which music type you like


You will see many restaurants in Chaweng Street. The Islander is my favorite; you can find European food and local foods. It is affordable and tasty. And also the new one in the town : TukTuk Backpackers Bar and Restaurant; The place is cheap and tasty. But if you are in honey moon, The Islander would be the better choice.
