CONRAD KOH SAMUI - OCEAN VIEW VILLA

We arrived, as we usually do, late at night, when the resort was dark and quiet, the only sound being that of the waves down at the beach, a good few meters below, gently lapping the shore, and the tinkling of soothing Thai instruments playing in the background. We were handed refreshing towelettes and welcome drinks (lemongrass and lime) and checked in. The Conrad, Koh Samui, is located high, high on a secluded hill, an hour's drive from the airport, a peaceful hideaway on the southwestern tip of Koh Samui island. 

A golf buggy carried us up to our room. We excitedly inspected every inch, as always, before stepping out from the air conditioning into the humid night air. Our private infinity pool glimmered in the low light - the view would have to wait until morning.

Aside from Alila Uluwatu, this is probably the most photogenic villa I've ever stayed in. Full disclosure: gleeful, giddy prancing around was a regular occurrence.

Have you ever seen a hotel provide a novel in the room for your reading pleasure?
