Our final stop – Koh Samui, Thailand

Topics: Honeymoon 2009

After our last stop in Chiang Mai, it was time for some good old relaxation, which is why we chose Koh Samui as our last stop. Koh Samui is one of the of the islands off the east side of Thailand which is known for its beaches and warm weather.  We had 4 nights and 5 days to do nothing but explore and relax. So we checked into our villa at a place called the Six Senses Hideaway, which was unreal!

Here is one view of the room, the entire place had floor to ceiling windows.

The view was amazing no matter which window you looked out.

Here is the view from our outside area, as you can see we had our own pool 🙂

So with no tours and very few historic landmarks on the Island of Koh Samui, We were going to be able to take full advantage of our villa. The first night we stayed there, we ate dinner at the resort. They had a Thai dinner set up for the guests, the restaurant has a breathtaking view to enjoy during the meal. (you will see in the video).

The next day, we woke up early had a big breakfast and headed to the beach. The water is turquoise and the scenery is just amazing. After a few hours of lying out , the wind picked up and it was time to give sailing  a shot.

Here is our captain! He brought us home safe!

After sailing, we did some more relaxing and then it was time to grab a drink and get ready for the sun to set.

ahhh this was a nice spot to do nothing….

or maybe this one…

We watched this sunset from the main pool

The view improved minute by minute.

The following day, we decided to be a bit more adventurous so we rented a car, grabbed a map and explored the island. In Koh Samui you drive on the left side of the road and there are thousands of people on scooters everywhere. Its total chaos driving here.

This is what they called the Big Buddha, the most famous Buddha on the island.

We stappoed on the side of the road to take this shot, the view was great!

The next place we found on our driving expedition was this guy. This was a Monk that died in the 70’s that they mummified and put on display…pretty gross! After this stop, we had to eat…just kidding!

The next stop was to see some rocks that we naturally formed into some well know shapes.

any guesses?

What about this one?

After we took this tourist shot we headed back in the car in search of a fodors recommended place for lunch. 2 hours later, we threw in the towel and found a place on the beach instead. Its very hard to navigate around when all the signs are in Thai! After lunch it was time to head back to our villa and catch some last minute sun before sunset.

that’s Lauren in the corner of the pool taking in the view

Jeremy’s turn

Can you beat this pool view?

The last thing on our list to do in Thailand was to see a Muay Thai boxing match. So we did some research and found one in town on our last night. First we headed to a restaurant at a hotel called the Library – how fitting for Lauren.

Very chic hotel that had great food. Our table was overlooking the beach.

Then it was over to the stadium for some Muay Thai boxing!

Guess who wins…

Not this guy…he was knocked out and took a while to get to his feet. Even when they were walking him out of the ring he was still seeing stars! After the fights it was time to call it a night.

The next day we only had a few hours to relax so what better to do than this.

What a perfect way to end an amazing honeymoon!

Unfortunately, all good adventures come to an end so we had one last buggy ride to the reception area and it off to the airport for 24 hours of flying

Hope you enjoyed our adventure as much as we did! Video highlights coming soon.
