CONRAD KOH SAMUI, THE RESORT

I've already waffled on about the stunning villas at Conrad Koh Samui, now for the rest of the resort.

We awoke each morning to a limitless view of the Gulf of Thailand and leisurely made our way down to breakfast to indulge in an irresistible buffet spread (with all the smoothie and juice flavours you could possibly wish for).

We spent one afternoon on the Conrad's complimentary speedboat, which whisked us around the neighbouring islands for snorkelling and lunch on the shore. The rest of the time we could be found unwinding either poolside on partially submerged  loungers, in our private villa blasting 90's dance music on the radio, or on a floating beach in the sea. Fresh coconuts and sunset cocktails on the outdoor lounge terrace were a must, and the most delicious gastronomic experience in a gorgeous setting at Jahn restaurant was a pure delight on our final evening.

Four days flew by far too quickly.

Beware of mosquitos on the terrace at sundown, or you'll end up looking like you have a case of the pox, as I did. Tip: if you do get attacked, ask a member of staff for some Tiger Balm. I grew up on this stuff and it soothes your bites wonderfully!

As the sun set on our last evening in this dreamland, all I could say was that I'd find my way back some day. To anyone considering going: just book it! But don't tell me if you do, because I'll be far too jealous.
