Fodor's Expert Review Al's Resort
200 Moo 2, Koh Samui, Surat Thani, 84320, Thailand
The newer deluxe villas at this resort are fashionably Thai, with Thai art on the walls, outdoor showers, and wooden bed frames, trims, and desks. Older deluxe beach-view accommodations are refurbished concrete rooms with boutique touches like loose-stone floors outside the baths, canopies over the beds, and stylish lighting. The look is somewhat contrived, though. Suites around the pool are similar to the villas, but have more amenities like wet bars in the sitting rooms and DVD players. The beachside swimming pool thumps with hip-hop beats to please a young, fun clientele. The large, semicircular restaurant and bar has glassed-in walls for full views of the beach and the sea.
