Sensational Samui

 Chaweng Beach Koh Samui Island is the busiest part of the island. However we were lucky in June 2016 the weather was beautiful and there were very few tourists so it was very peaceful indeed.

Baan Chaweng Hotel

Chaweng Beach Koh Samui Island

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times before, the location is ideal, the rooms are good and the staff is friendly. I have noticed however the prices have certainly risen in the last 10 years. For an excellent rate just use THIS LINK to book.

The hotel grounds are a little like a rain forest.

Massage on Chaweng Beach Koh Samui

A bright green bikini is always going to brighten up my day. 🙂

The Ark Bar

The Ark Bar is a huge hotel that’s very popular with the younger crowd, there is a big pool party every Wednesday and Friday. Older dinosaurs like myself are better off 100 meters further on at the quieter Baan Chaweng.

For an excellent room rate at the Ark Bar just book through THIS LINK.

Hillside homes being built

Maybe you need a tattoo?

I have to admit I am not a fan of heavily tattooed females, but to each his own I guess.

She looks better here

Much better because I can’t see her tattoos. 🙂

An unusual building on Chaweng Peppina has a reputation for making great pizzas.

A typical Samui scene

Chaweng beach is rather special to me, so many memories over the years. My first visit was 1998 followed by many over the following years including New Years Eve 1999.

Here is the beach massage price list

Price list, what price list? I don’t see a price list. 🙂

Flashback to December 1999

Had a short fling with this beautiful Italian girl from Florence. Her name was Barbara Manelli, I called her “The Gypsy:. 🙂
