Sala Samui, Anantara, or Tongsai Bay?

I combed the forums, but the most recent time I saw feedback comparing these hotels was July '06.

Any thoughts on where should we stay in Koh Samui? We'll be there five nights for our honeymoon. We're looking at the Deluxe Balcony at Sala (Garden Villa sold out, Pool Villa too pricey at $450/night), the Deluxe Terrace at Anantara, or the Beachfront Suite at Tongsai Bay.

Anantara is the best deal, with a free night. It comes in at $220/night incl breakfast.

Sala Samui is $250 night plus breakfast.

Tongsai Bay is $280/night.

We like Sala and Tongsai b/c they are a bit more secluded, but the activities at Anantara look great. Money doesn't have to be the deciding factor, as it's overall only a few hundred dollar difference; however, we want to ensure we're getting what we pay for.

Any thoughts? Many thanks!

Never mind, folks, we splurged on the Tongsai Bay room!

We spent 4 nights at sala samui in apool villa in April 2006. We thought it was over-priced. The bathroom, not just the shower is outside in 85-90 degree heat even at night, not pleasant. The pool is lovely but a bit too hot to enjoy for long periods. Somewhat isolated. The food for the 3 meals we eat there was fairly good but not a repeat. Have not stayed at either of the other 2 resorts.
