Best Affordable Beach Resorts
Courtesy of Akaryn Samui
There’s a gentle elegance to Akaryn Samui’s villas. Four-poster beds with 400-thread-count linens rest beneath whirring vintage-style fans. Sea breezes drift off of Hanuman Bay to your private garden and plunge pool. If you can rouse yourself from your outdoor daybed, there are sunrise and sunset yoga classes, a holistic spa, a boutique, and a tea salon.
Cost: From $208.
Don’t Miss: Head to a local market with the chef and learn how to shop for and cook some of the hotel’s Thai specialties.
