This was literally the view from the front door of our "Villa." The room rate sounds like a fortune in Thai Baht but it was only a little more than a Best Western on the way to New Mexico.
That's the restaurant over beyond the pool. Very nice, cheap for Samui, we had lunch there everyday. One night we had dinner too, they set up right on the beach, very romantic. The other three nights we went to "Prego," an up-scale Italian place up the block at the Amari Palm Reef Resort. Amari hotels are way expensive, but the restaurant was going for the volume, great food at prices that actually were reasonable, not just described in the ads as reasonable. Thank you Chef Marco!
