Arriving on Koh Samui you will immediately be reminded you are now in a tropical climate. That hot and humid weather you were looking forward to will envelop you with welcoming arms and soon you will find yourself heading for the sanctuary of the pool. To then add a special island touch we urge you to stay at one of our hotels in Koh Samui with a swim up bar where a tall glass with a little umbrella awaits.
With this we do not mean sitting at a pool-side bar a few feet away because drinking is not allowed in the water. That would defeat the purpose. At our list of hotels we really do mean you can socialize and enjoy drinks at a bar inside the pool, not next to it. We agree that to leave the water for refreshment is a definite no-no because when on an island break you should be able to do as much or as little as possible.
