Katie and Carrie are here to help give you the inside track.

SALA Samui has 69 spacious villas, 53 of which have private swimming pools and are of which all wonderfully private. The décor in the villas is simple and modern, with white washed walls and Thai-inspired furnishings.

When it's time to leave the villa (if necessary at all), the hotel has two swimming pools, a great little spa, and yoga classes for beginners. Other activities can also be arranged from the hotel, from snorkelling and diving to elephant trekking. Island tours are a great way to see the surrounding areas, and there are also golf courses nearby. Most importantly, SALA Samui is beachfront, so stretches of white sandy beach should entertain any technophile.

Foodies take note - there is a Thai cookery school here, as well as two pretty fab restaurants. The main SALA Samui restaurant primarily focuses on authentic Thai cuisine, whilst the Pangaea restaurant caters for those with less daring taste buds - yes, their burgers are pretty tasty. Alternatively, don't leave the villa at all and instead, spark up the barbecue or order food from one of the hotel restaurants.

Why we love it
