If you don’t need direct beach access and you’d like to save a bit of baht, the Mercure Fenix offers a good alternative to the pricy options that dominate the island. The resort is a 5-minute ride from the restaurants and bars of Lamai, accessible by shuttle. Rooms are not huge, but they’re chicly designed and all have the essentials—modern furnishings, satellite TV, work desk, and safety boxes. There’s an average-sized pool, exercise room, and smart restaurant, and it’s located right next to one of Samui’s best-known sights—the “Grandfather and Grandmother Rocks.” (p. ###). The beach is a short walk from the hotel, and there you’ll find over-sized lounge sofas.
