I have to admit that I am not a big fan of Koh Samui, mainly because I really dislike Chaweng and some of the incredibly tacky tourist activities dotted around the island. However, I think Lipa Noi is a welcome respite, and the Kanok Buri resort itself has some fabulous accomodation, in a peaceful area with little of the rowdiness of other larger places.
We love riding scooters (we have licenses and take our own european helmets) and that really made life easy for us. Lipa Noi is quite secluded. If you are there purely to relax on the beach, its a great place for you. If you love the wind in your hair or helmet, its also a great place to use as a base for rides around the less touristy parts of the island.
We were upgraded to one of the pool villas that was absolutely fabulous. The last few nights were moved to a jacuzzi room in the main building. Those rooms were a lot more tired than the brand new villa we stayed in. Hard to judge them really after you've been so spoilt in the gorgeous villa!
