Koh Madsum, Samui’s sister island, has a nice deal on tented villas

If Koh Samui is too mainstream, head to Koh Madsum, an island 40 minutes south of the often bustling and raucous main island by a traditional wooden boat. The sleek, but still rustic U Koh Madsum Samui resort may just be the peace and quiet you seek.

And to sweeten the deal, they’ve got an all-inclusive package that includes a three-day two-night stay in one of their spacious tented villas, a daily breakfast and dinner that you can order whenever, wherever, as well as round trip transport from Samui airport. Plus, the lush resort has a sexy infinity pool, spa and beach bar. And for those seeking the sun, head to beach and snorkel along the coral reefs. The package goes for $280 per person and is valid until Oct 31.
