The Belmond Napasai is a fine boutique resort with prime beachfront location on the northern tip of Koh Samui. The resort offers some of the most luxurious, tasteful and private accommodation on the island.
Its 69 villas and cottages are spread over lush cashew and coconut groves and designed in traditional Thai style. There are five categories of accommodation; Beachfront and Sea Views cottages offer deluxe island accommodation with sea views. Both have large bedrooms with king size beds, private balcony and lounge area. Family Cottages are similar but have two bedrooms. Garden Spa Cottages and Private Pool Villas are built in a split-level fashion with private beachfront swimming pools and outdoor âsalaâ relaxation pavilions. All rooms have air conditioning, DVD players, satellite TV and free internet access.
The resort has two restaurants Lai Thai, which serves gourmet Thai cuisine, and the Beach Restaurant with tasty international dishes and seafood. Both specialise in Southern Thai cuisine.
The Ytsara Spa has classy treatment rooms and studios for the ultimate in pampering. Ytsara's (meaning freedom in Thai) holistic treatments use natural and organic ingredients to the highest standards. The Pala Energy Body Massage is one of spa's unique products and comes highly recommended.

I started doing a search on the net for specialists and came across Experience Travel Group. I liked a lot what I saw on their website so started an online dialogue with one of their operators. She quickly realised what we are looking for and got one of her colleges who was a specialist in this area. A chap called David Gookey called me back to chat about what we wanted. We gave David a brief for our budget and the type of things that we wanted to do and he did the rest. All I can say is he put together the perfect holiday, sorted out the best tours and some incredible hotels. All guides, flights, transport and transfers taken care of. If you're reading this David thank you once again.
