With the quick catamaran we arrive from the Thai island Koh Tao to the neighboring island of Koh Samui.
The boat stops at the north of the popular island, the pier is in the far east of Mae Nam. From here it is only a short walk to the four-star Hotel Saree Samui.
53 villas are belonging to the boutique hotel, they are located in a wide lush garden. Each of the traditional Thai-Balinese furnished villas offers on more than 100 square meters a private, secluded garden and an open living and bathroom.
A villa with private garden
We stay in one of the 35 Tropical Villas. This is the simplest category but the room has a lot of space! Through a small wooden door we step into the garden of “our” villa and an open living room with a freshly filled fruit basket is waiting for us.
Also from the open bedroom we can walk directly into the garden. If it is too warm, we can close the large glass doors and use the air conditioning.
In addition to the “Tropical Villas” there are six “Beachfront Villas” with a stunning sea view, both categories are available in the version “Pool Villa:. Eight garden and four beachfront villas own a small pool in the private garden. For honeymooners the pool is decorated with traditional orchids and flowers.
Infinity pool at the beach
Narrow paths wind through the tropical forest to the massage parlor on the beach …
… and to the dark green 35-meter infinity pool overlooking the neighboring island of Koh Phangan. On holidays, I’m an early riser and at 7 a.m. I hop in the huge pool and swim my tracks. The first guests come until around half past eight and reserve a sunchair for the day at the beach.
Swimming is hardly wavy sea is no problem, even kids splash in the shallow water.
After my morning exercise I walk from the garden villa through the resort to the beach restaurant. Most tables have a wonderful sea view and so I take my time for a long breakfast with omelets and fresh fruit on the terrace and start comfortably in the day.
For today I’ve rented a moped at the reception and want to explore the island.
