Hi drmsmq8!

Do you realize that it's probably going to rain on Koh Samui in October because of the monsoon season?

It might even be impossible to take the ferry to the island due to the sea condition, so you might want to book a flight.

For the 5 star hotel best check websites to find one satisfying your requirements:

Good luck and a happy marriage :),

The best place to stay as honeymooner is sandalwoods.

Take a look at it, its a really beautiful place and very romantic.

Yes, it is rain in Thailand around this time of the year. However, it is not all day rain but rather a huge downpours for just 1 or 2 hrs. Instead of ruining your day, it rather spice up a little romance.

My wife and I went to Sila Evason Hideaway and Spa Koh Samui last year for our Honeymoon. We love it. It was so romantic, private, away from the crowd, and charming. We stayed in Pool Villa with a great service from our lovely butler. The hotel staffs were very friendly and helpful. The hotel and room facilities are outstanding. Totally recommend. Planning to go there again this year around November.

Hope this help you somehow

Pitt,
I am sure it was lovely, but at over $600/nite, just a bit out of my budget. I allow roughly $10/nite while I am in SEA, so I am afraid the Silva Evason Hideaway will have to wait until I hit the lottery!

Oh! when I was there it just about $350-400 only. Is it high season already? I believe it still raining in Thailand though. Anyway, this shall be my wife favorite hotel due to the place itself, their service, and its surrounding.

Hi drmsmq8,

I believe it is a 4-star hotel, but look like 5-star. We picked it because it offered the panoramic sea view. To answer your question, I will put it this way. This might help you plan you trip.

The total night spent was 5 nights booking the room via -snip-

We spent 2 full days at the hotel to enjoy ourselves, the hotel facilities, the pool, the spa, and water sport offered by the hotel. The other 2 days, we went out with the local tour guide during the day for elephant trekking, buffalo cart riding, monkey show, snorkeling, visiting the Big Buddha, visiting Grandfather & Grandmother Rock, and enjoy the local food offered along the way. The last day, we spent the time with each other in the hotel to enjoy the view.

At night, we just find a good and romantic dinning place. The first night, we went to “Dining on the Rocks” - a stylish gourmet restaurant with outstanding views (270 degrees view) is located in the hotel. You have to get there before its dark. Select your terrace and enjoy your dinning. The view is unbelievable such as private bay, waves crashing the rocks, and Koh Pha-Ngan. Try “Experience set dinner”, it’s 10 mini-courses which allow you to taste many dishes in one time. Uh! Don’t forget to order wine or you can bring your own.

The second night, we went to “Chef Chom’s” which was another restaurant that we tried. It was closed by the hotel. It offers Royal Thai Cuisine with home style Thai cooking with open-air terraces overlooking the sea. The food was also great such as Thai Salad, and the salmon dish. The taste was so good.

The third and forth night, we went to catch our night life at Chaweng Beach. It’s like a shopping mall at night. There are so many bars and restaurants. Everybody was so friendly. We had dinner at Captain Kirk located on Central Chaweng. It offers international and Thai food. Try the baked and grill seafood dishes. They’re good at it. The other local seafood restaurant was also good. I forget the name; I just asked the taxi driver to get me to local seafood restaurant that filled with Thai people. The food was so spicy but came back with lots of fun.

The fifth night, we're just enjoy ourselves at the hotel and taking some rest before getting back.

Wish you luck for your honeymoon trip
