Nordberg family – Thailand (Oct 2019)

Travel With Jules were really helpful finding us a hotel that was perfect for our requirements and also recommending where in Koh Samui we should stay. I usually know most of the hotels in holiday destinations but they have now managed twice to find great hotels that were new to me 🙂 

Anantara Bophut (Koh Samui) was in a perfect location, easy walk into the village which was not too built up but still with sufficient infrastructure. Perfect for families and couples who don’t want a party place!

Would thoroughly recommend scuba diving with Dive Academy, the 4×4 Jungle Safari (programme B with no animal shows) and the Elephant Haven. Sienbengale restaurant was great for Thai food and Gusto for Italian (for a change). My son got food posioning from Coffee House so maybe avoid that one. Cafe 69 is supposed to be great too but didn’t make it there. All in all a great holiday.

The only thing I would say is that the monsoon season now apparently starts in October so I would possibly recommend that people who want a sunny holiday don’t go there in October.
