We spent a weekend at the beach on ths island of Koh Samui. We stayed at the Muang Kulaypan Hotel and ate several meals at the hotel restaurant. I wasn't really very adventurous when it came to breakfast and stuck with the American breakfast of bacon, eggs, and toast. It was really quite good. The eggs were some of the best I'd eaten. Dan had the continental breakfast and thought it was boring and that there wasn't enough variety and quantity of breads. Dan was a bit more adventurous the next morning and tried the Simian breakfast. Bad idea if you didn't know what you were getting. It was an assortment of delicacies that scared even me. Two of items were a watery rice porridge and pickled eggs.

Dinner was a better. I had the fish curry. It was perfect. Just the right blend of spices. Dan had the vegetables with tofu and green sauce. It was very tasty but at the utmost limit of his spice scale. The calamari appetizer we had wasn't very good. The batter they used on it wasn't working for it. The coconut shake I had with dinner was really good. I had several of those over the course of the weekend. Dan enjoyed the fried bananas.

The best part about Budsaba is the private sala dining. Salas are similar to huts (without the walls). The ones at Budsaba came with a table and four pillows. You took your shoes off before entering. The salas at Budsaba were located right on the beach so it was quite to take a book out to read and sip on a cool drink and have a snack. Budsaba also featured live traditional Thai dancing and music nightly at 8pm. Breakfast came with the room and the other meals were fairly inexpensive.
