The 3rd leg of our stay in Koh Samui with Hug Thailand was at the tranquil getaway of Renaissance Koh Samui Resort. Nestled on the beach of Lamai and a short scooter ride away from Chaweng, the place has a feel of hustle and bustle yet felt quiet and secluded. Like the others, this resort was once again nothing far off impeccable with its warm hospitality and gorgeous architecture - it didn't disappoint! We walked past lush gardens filled with tropical trees and delicate flowers that covered the resort grounds as we were shown to our luxe villa. Who can say no to a private pool that overlooked the stunning communal pool and mesmerising view of the beach! Our rooms were spacious and plush, complete with a His and Her bathroom, perfect for a relaxing night after busy days out in the sun. Another thing we loved, the high speed wifi -...

After a comfy flight with Malaysia airlines, we were picked up from the Koh Samui airport. On our way down south towards Avani, we were given a first-hand view of the hustling lifestyle of the locals in Koh Samui. Road rules don't really apply here and the traffic is hectic but somehow no one seems to be in a rush. I can't really complain about Melbourne traffic anymore! Through our journey to the south coast, the density of the island slowly began to wound into palm trees and scenic coastlines. Lush greenery, clear blue skies and fresh air followed us on our way. After 45 minutes in the car, we were taken away by the beauty of Avani Samui and I realised we were in for something special. As we we pulled into the driveway of this brand new establishment (opened in 2018), we felt a sense of excitement yet relaxation. We...

I had always heard that Koh Samui's Nora Buri was a beautiful place but it wasn't till I experienced it for myself that I discovered it's charm and this I was not prepared for! From its picturesque hilltop ocean views to its stunning interiors, this resort was beyond inspiring in its attention to detail and care. Whether it be the buildings, the landscape, the restaurants, the poolside, the food - you name it - every element was mastered. For those lovers of the relaxed and laid back lifestyle of Koh Samui, Nora Buri Resort & Spa is the perfect destination for you. Not only is it centrally located from the local shops, restaurants and entertainment of Chaweng it is only minutes away from the airport - a huge bonus! A big thank you to Hug Thailand for helping make this trip one to remember! We were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to...

    So, without further ado. I introduce you to a café I have fallen in love with.. Torpe. Aka Foodie utopia! Torpe is located in a cosy white walled building on Wattletree Rd in the gorgeous Armadale! What a super cute location that is a café by day, and bar by night. I made my way through the venue totally in love with the north-facing windows, which allowed so much natural light setting a perfect scene for Sunday breakfast! Torpe is a split-level space and is furnished with timeless pieces I wanted to take home. Not to mention the vibrant pink room I wanted to live in. Big-framed windows out looking the streets, baby pink marble tables, shades of pink printed pillows, grand chandeliers & so much gorgeous greenery! It’s definitely a hotspot and a café I’ll go back to again… Girls, gotta get the picture for the gram in...
