We are a coffee, espresso, latte family. Seattle has definitely turned Gabe into a coffee guy, and I have grown up around it with it being a staple in my home growing up. Still to this day, my dad probably drinks 15+ cups a day. I kid you not, there is no exaggeration as it is probably more like 20 cups a day. The coffee pot is always going at the office, and he makes a full pot at night when he walks in the door from work at 7pm. He's an addict and will need it in dripped directly his veins one of these days :)
After breakfast, we headed out to Fisherman's Village,
which was a great shopping area just a 10-15 minute walk away.
We realized everything didn't open for a few more hours and the sun was out, so we headed back to the hotel and to head to the pool. Yes please!!
We saw people left and right there were just fried. Like lobster friend, and I didn't understand it. Until this day when I was just going to layout for an hour or so, and I might have put on a little oil as the hotel provided it so kindly. Which I regretted later after burning. UGH, and I did so good up until this point.
Then, after much debate and checking out many other hotels in the vicinity, we decided to pick up and check in to the hotel directly next door. It was actually the hotel I wanted to stay-in in the first place, but they were completely booked for the beginning of our Koh Samui trip. And Gabe totally agreed as the Anantara was stunning, but we kind of got swallowed up in the 5 star resort as it was so large. We happily packed up and walked our bags to the hotel next door.
This makes hotel #6 in 11 days :)
We fell in love just seconds after arriving and knew this was the place we would call home for the next 3 nights. The Bo Phut Resort & Spa was incredible, just exactly what we wanted and although it's hard to believe, it was more relaxing.
We walked right out our terrace to this .... HEAVEN!
I took more naps sitting out here than I ever anticipated.
NOW, for one of my favorite things while we were in Samui and staying in BoPhut was the spring roll stand directly on the beach. The sweet ladies sat out there for 10 hours at a time, and this "street food" was my fav!
Then, we cleaned up and took a picture at our hotel before the humidity got to us, haha!
How cool is this dinner spot overlooking the beach with this HUGE tree!
And, I'm pretty sure I was in bed by 9pm ...
