Geeking Destination: Koh Samui, Thailand

Let’s restart our Geeking Destination! Each week, we’ll be sharing an awesome, under-rated, vacation destination!

This week: Conrad Koh Samui

This hotel is the perfect escape for those who like swimming in private! That’s right, each room (well, Villa really) has it’s own Private Pool! And not a small little plunge pool, we’re talking a whopping10-meter infinity-edge pool! Besides, the villa itself, deck, daybed, hot tub are all stunning.

The best part of this hotel? You can stay here from Free! As low as 80,000 Hilton Honor Points Per Night! Plus if you stay for five nights. the 5th night is Free! This Credit Card Can Earn You 85,000 Points! Plus you’ll get Instant Hilton Gold Status (Think upgrades dude!)

Room tip: Every room has its own Private Pool! Get one of the lower rooms to be closer to the beach.

How to get there: Airport code USM about a 50 minute taxi ride to hotel. Thai Airways (United and Star Alliance Partner) has two daily flights from Bangkok as does Bangkok Airways (Japan Airlines & Air France Partner) as well as non-stops from Hong Kong & Kuala Lumpur. Singapore Airlines has two daily (morning) flights from Singapore as well. The Koh Samui Airport is hands down the cutest airport you’ll ever fly to. I’m itching to go back just to see it again ūüôā

From the USA, consider Cathay Pacific to Hong Kong (Alaska Airlines Partner.) Business Class on Cathay Pacific will run you 50K Miles each way or in First Class for 70,000 Alaska Airlines Miles.

Singapore Airlines (Transfer Partner from Chase or American Express) is my favorite option from JFK, Houston or San Fransisco.

How to book:¬†Support us by using our Cheap0Air Link. Or you can sign up for the super awesome Amex Business Platinum¬†(We’ll earn 15k points if you sign up) and use your points to book the hotel using American Express Travel.

What to do?
Honestly most of the famous Thai activities are better, cheaper and more authentic in Chaing Mai. Koh Samui is all about beautiful beaches, private pools and other worldly views.  

Recommended amount of time to stay in Koh Samui? 3-5 days.
