Silk Air will start flying from Singapore to Koh Samui three times a week at the end of September. This is great news as up to now, Bangkok Airlines has been the only carrier on this direct route. While the flight is excellent, it can be expensive. Silk Air looks as if it will offer cheaper flights and hopefully a little competition will be a healthy thing. See you on the beach!

Baan Pimalai is adding some color to her pristine white walls with an injection of leafy green. Between the jungle-covered hills and the coconut palm fringed shores, Koh Samui is an island rich in plants, trees and flowers so it was only right that Baan Pimalai have some of her own. We have grassed the garden so whether you want to kick a ball about with the kids or plant your sun lounger there for some bronzing, this could be the ideal spot. We’ve also added some plants to the Balinese shower. This downstairs bathroom has the best of an outside rain shower and being sheltered enough to use whatever the weather. The huge shower head is attached to the ceiling, but the wide gap between the wall and the ceiling will make you feel as if you are showering outside in the rain. We will be adding more plants and flowers to the garden and terraces over the next weeks to keep up the tropical feel of Baan Pimalai.
The scaffolding has finally come down and Baan Pimalai looks like the white, airy, contemporary villa she was always intended to be. There is a week or so of work to be done (pool to be tiled, kitchen installed etc) as well as lots of finishing, cleaning and tidying. After that, we can hang the lovely curtains we have chosen and ask our interior designer to install furniture, furnishings and artwork.
