Stay & Play Thailand
The heat of the sun as we landed would be a preview of the warmth we would get from the staff at the Tongsai Bay Resort. Comfort and pleasure is the name of the game, and upon arrival at the Koh Samui airport, a staff member was there to welcome us and chauffeur us to the resort.
The receptionist gave us a tour of the hotel and its amenities along with a map to find our way. We were informed that we would be offered an upgrade to a seafront pool villa!
The hotel offers to all their guests a complimentary escort (golf cart) from the lobby to their rooms or from their rooms to wherever they wish to go within the resort. It may seem silly, but it is quite appreciated in the heat, especially considering the resort’s size.
Our seafront villa was simply stunning! Nice cold towels infused with a lovely fragrance and a refreshing herbal iced tea awaited us. Stepping into the room, you will immediately notice the very large balcony, which includes a private pool facing the sea. Alongside the swimming area, two sun loungers invite guests to sunbathe with a view.
If you are trying to avoid the sun, the balcony also has a shaded resting area containing a 4 poster bed with mosquito screens, a bath tub, dining table and a large pantry which includes a bar with sink and a fridge. As for the room itself, it is divided in two, where the bedroom and TV room both offer seafront views.
