Mantra Samui Resort- Hotel Review

We were put on an earlier flight by Bangkok airlines. We had booked a car from the Mantra Samui to pick us up, but they had our old flight times so were obviously not waiting at the airport to pick us up at the earlier time.

Coco Tams at Fishermans Village Bophut Samuii

I remember reading reviews about how good the Coconut ice cream here was. I had a few huge Strawberry Mojitos and we also had some of their very famous coconut ice cream with a shot of baileys. They have huge big bean bags to sit on that didnt look to impressive but in fact were surprisingly comfortable. It was lovely to sit on the beach drinking cocktails and listening to the waves.
