Located on the northern tip of the island of Koh Samui, the second largest in Thailand, is the beachside resort of Bo Phut. Thanks to its somewhat secluded location, it offers guests plenty of peace and relaxation, as well as enchanting views of the crystal-clear sea. It’s surrounded by several acres of plantation, with the abundant lush vegetation making its location seem even more idyllic. Bo Phut has an excellent swimable beach and plenty of good restaurants within walking distance along Bo Phut and within nearby Fisherman's Village.
Accommodation at Bo Phut consists of 29 deluxe rooms and 32 villas. All guest rooms are decorated in a contemporary Thai style and are well equipped with a good range of modern amenities, including air conditioning, a satellite TV with DVD player, a well-stocked minibar and a private balcony. Each guest room has a private balcony, with some offering views of the resort’s beautifully landscaped gardens and others offering views of the beach and the Gulf of Thailand - some even come with their own private plunge pool or outdoor jacuzzi.
Sala Thai, the resort’s main restaurant, is open for dinner only and specialises in Thai cuisine. It makes for quite a romantic setting for dinner due to the fact that it overlooks the resort’s lotus pond and live music is provided. L’Ocean is the resort’s other restaurant and is open for three meals a day. It specialises in contemporary Mediterranean cuisine and offers a good variety of dishes throughout the day.
For indulgence and pampering, there’s the spa, which has a full menu of treatments available. The therapists are highly trained and used specialist ingredients to ensure that all guests leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Also on-site is a well- equipped fitness centre, along with an outdoor swimming pool, a smaller children’s pool, a hot tub and a library whose computers have internet access. Various activities are available from private boat charters and snorkelling expeditions, to romantic dinner cruises and kayaking trips. Guests staying here are well situated for exploring everything Koh Samui has to offer, from its gorgeous beaches lined with palm trees, to its wild mountainous landscapes and its vast coconut groves.
The resort welcomes children of all ages, though there’s no room for extra beds in any of the rooms. Parents should keep an eye on their younger ones whenever they’re near any of the pools.

Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
