On the 26th of March i was lucky enough to jet off to Thailand for almost THREE WEEKS, i know, who do i think i am? It's something I definitely wouldn't be able to do If I didn't work for myself, so, i justified it as a work trip! After preparing lots of stock ready for my trusty mum to ship for me.... I was all set, with a bag full of newly designed lingerie, swimwear and a wide range of cameras, I was ready for a 'work trip' or at least, thats what i was calling it!
You can catch up on my wholleeeee adventure on my personal Instagram @laurencrowe88 where you can find selfies and sunsets galore, and i might even do another blog post, but for now i want to tell you all about Coconuts palm Koh Samui because it is just AMAZING! I chose to head to Koh Samui for a few days to try and focus on getting some good shots so i could relax a little knowing i had some really good material! and when i say relax.... i mean go back to taking underwater selfies with my go pro and drowning myself in strawberry daiquiris! I knew Koh Samui was a safe bet as it was normally a 'no go' area for me as a 'backpacker' you know.... it's Far too touristy for your gap yaarrrr! LAME! Anyway with this in mind, I knew it would have lots of lovely resorts and probably not many stinky backpackers.... excluding me of course!!!
I found Coconuts Palm on Agoda, it was so cheap and beautiful it seemed too good to be true, i was a little concerned when the taxi driver taking me had NO CLUE where it was! but after a litttlleeeee tour of Lamai.... we finally arrived! OH MY GOD! it was pure luxury, turns out it was newly open and therefore a complete bargain! Anyway, the bungalow, pool, staff, SHOWER, cocktails, food, service, pillows, minibar.... everything was 5 star! They even invited us to a little party they were having with their French friends! After talking to the Owner I found out he was previously a very successful stylist! which probably explains the impeccable taste showcased all over the resort. After a little chat about what I do,(after some confused looks at how many times I had changed bikinis and was STILL taking photos of myself) they even offered us an upgrade to a 'Tropical room' with swim up pool and your own sunbathing deck! Unfortunately we had to leave so were unable to take them up on the offer GUTTED! Nevertheless, the short time i was there was perfection and my room was way more than satisfactory!!! Anyway.... here are some of my pictures... you'll also see some eLCy swimwear featured that will be hitting my shop in the next few week!
