Nestled at the heart of idyllic Chaweng Noi is the stunning Vana Belle. The luxurious five star resort boasts decadent sea facing pool villas, prime beachfront location, and impeccable dining and service. We loved how the property integrated seamlessly with Koh Samui’s natural beauty and unique features and the children loved exploring the lush green grounds and white sand beach. Our Tropical Pool Villa featured a grand master bedroom, plenty of lounge space, and a refreshing pool just steps from the crystal blue sea. Foodies will be impressed with he delicious restaurant options from casual poolside dining at Panali to sophisticated fine dining at Kiree the Bistro. Our days were spent lounging at the main pool while the kids played, swam, and enjoyed a variety of watersports and special children’s activities. A perfect choice for those who are looking for a trusted brand, island luxury, and prime location on one of Samui’s most picturesque beaches.

Kiree the Bistro is a sophisticated venue set at the top of luxurious Vana Belle. Enjoy expansive views of the sea and the sprawling resort grounds while delving into a mouthwatering menu.  We loved the elevated versions of classic Thai fare and the juicy grilled steaks were a true highlight of our dinners. Must haves include the delicate crab cakes with peppers and a honey mustard beurre-blanc, the fragrant “Pla Thod Yum Ma Maung”,Deep fried sea bass fillet served with green mango salad and rich and flavourful “Moo Hong” Braised pork belly in five spices and shrimp paste. Pair your meal with a bottle of wine from their impressive collection to complete the ideal date night while staying in Koh Samui.

Enjoy a leisurely lunch overlooking the pool and picturesque beach at Panali restaurant at Vana Belle. The rustic yet luxurious venue boasts enviable sea views and an indulgent menu full of Italian comfort food and family friendly dishes. We loved delving into the hearty pastas and refreshing salads and especially recommend the authentic egg wrapped Pad Thai.  Pair it all with a fresh fruit shake or ice cold coconut for a truly relaxing afternoon meal.

A safe family layover at Singapore Changi Airport with Aerotel Singapore

Travel has changed a lot since we were on our last International flight in March 2020, and with children we were naturally worried about the new process and hygiene standards throughout our journey. We were so happy to find Aerotel at Singapore Changi Airport for our long layover ensuring not only did our family stay safe and comfortable but we were ready for the next leg of our journey well fed and rested. As soon as we disembarked our plane a member of the Aerotel team were there to greet us at the gate. We did not have to line up in crowded groups or go to any transit zones but were transported by buggy immediately from gate to hotel check-in. The check-in process was quick and easy and before we knew it we were in the comfort of our family room ready for a good night’s sleep. The spacious room incorporated two large bedrooms, full bathroom, and cozy lounge. The room included a complimentary meal for each of us including Kid’s Meal options which were a huge hit with our children. When it was time for our flight the next morning, the lovely team gave us a wake-up call and escorted us by buggy directly to our gate. There is no safer way to have a layover than at Aerotel. The service was informative and helpful and being able to sleep, eat, and relax in the comfort of our room while waiting for our next flight was essential when travelling with young children. Highly recommended for families who are travelling through Singapore.
