Read more about their fantastic experience below:
“We couldn’t believe we had won the holiday lottery. We were Christmas shopping in Southampton when our son Aaron called to tell us the news. It was difficult to concentrate on shopping whilst thinking about where in the world we could travel to!
We decided to visit Singapore and Koh Samui in Thailand. Our friends are currently living in Singapore and so we flew direct to Singapore and visited them for the weekend to experience the contrast of a vibrant modern city to a more relaxing location in Koh Samui. We really enjoyed Singapore, especially the cocktail bar on the top of Marina Bay, and stayed in a boutique hotel in China Town, which was really busy as it was Chinese New Year! Singapore is such a clean city and very easy to get around, the underground is nothing like the underground in London!
We then flew just 1 ½ hours to Koh Samui. The reason why we choose Koh Samui is that both our sons had visited, but as backpackers, and thought we would also like to experience the island, but upgrade our accommodation!
We stayed in the North of Koh Samui at Tongsai Bay villas. The villas were built on the hill amongst the jungle and not a single tree was cut down and no damage was caused to the beautiful natural surroundings giving it a status of a sustainable green resort.
Our villa had a large lounge area leading out to the terrace with an outside bath and our own plunge pool overlooking the bay. It was very private and we couldn’t hear our neighbours but just the sound of the birds.
We enjoyed a half day tour of the island and also visited Angthong National Marine Park for a day of snorkelling, kayaking and lazing on the secluded beaches. We spent the majority of the time relaxing at the hotel and making use of our terrace. The food and staff were exceptional and you definitely knew you were in a 5* resort.
We would just like to say thank you to Wayfarers for organising – all our travel ran very smoothly”.
