Coconut Beach Koh Samui hotels review


I promised to review a calm little hotel at
Samui island in Thailand. This video will be long, while my commentary will be short.
I want you to feel the atmosphere from the first person perspective. So, Phangka Paradise
hotel. We are welcomed by a bridge across some nasty river. Please remember this straight,
I’ll talk about it later. Let’s go the reception, peeping at the monkey. Reception. Combined
with dinery. The prices are normal for us, but triple higher than average local check
go. Let’s go out to the beach. It overlooks Marine Park. We will focus on the beach later.
The pool is fresh water, not salt water. The garden. Remember this road, I’ll also talk
about it later. The garden view bungalows. Behind them is a tiny fence and the houses
behind that is already another hotel. The barrels with water and scoop are to wash sand
away from your feet. Let’s go out to the beach. The is the ocean and the sea view bungalows.
It’s about 9 in the morning now, and the water has not yet come after nightly tide. Here
that messy river comes out, bringing all the filth from local area, so you’d better don’t
bathe near the reception. The sea is very low. And the
seabed has some rocks, including the worst variety that are covered with seashells. These
are razor sharp, and severely cut feet. The administration and the guests somewhat cleared
the beach from those rocks, but not all of it. In general, the beach is nice. Peaceful
and calm. Let’s take a walk to the neighboring, more expensive hotel. Trash on the sand. Well,
yes, that’s Asia. As you can see, expensive hotel beach is close to boat station. They
don’t go often, mostly at night to set and remove nets. Also at night a lot of people
with head lamps walk where the water used to be collecting crabs and other seafood.
There is a hotel on this hill. Despite it has a dug out beach for swimming, it stinks
so much that no one actually bathes there. Behind it is a VIP hotel Conrad It doesn’t
have a beach at all, however, each room has it’s own seaview pool. Also close is Jinta
hotel. That’s how the beach looks. A little further is Centara hotel. Here is Centara
beach. Right behind Phangka are Emerald Cove bungalows. Here you can eat. The prices are
a bit higher then elsewhere, but only around 20 percent. It’s very close to Phangka, here’s
the road I mentioned earlier. Let’s get back to Phangka to see the room inside. This idiotic
step may cause you a lot of pain, especially at night. Who builds like that? The room doesn’t
have a hairdryer and there is no kettle. In general, it’s a nice cozy room which even
has an extra sofa, just in case. There’s no civilization nearby. The closest shops are
about 1.5 km away. I recommend to walk or drive to the crossroads. Here you can buy
fruits, there is an ATM, a minimarket, motorcycle repair shop and a couple eateries. If you
want normal deep sea, drive to Lipa noi. The beach here is a good one – it gets deep almost
after entry, the sand is clear and no seashells. There’s a navy station nearby, don’t swim
there.
