I forget the name of this place. It has since disappeared to make room for a bigger fancier place, but it was about $3 a night. Very basic. Two brothers ran it. We all got drunk on tuak one night. One more shot in comments.

In Kuta on Poppies gang next to Fat Yogi’s. Same owners as Poppies Koh Samui with similar layout, but much cheaper here. Interior shot. See comments for more.
At the time, this was the classiest place on the island. This bungalow was about $30 per night. Interior shot in comments.
Munchies bungalows is one of the first places on Koh Samui. It used to be cheap, around $15 a night, but since has remodeled with much nicer furnishings, a better restaurant and a pool. Hence, the price has gone up.
On the southern end of the main beach. A bit quieter here. Bungalows very basic. All meals included. Very nice staff. See comments for more pics.
Our first stop in the Gilis was the first island, Gili Air. It was a nice little bungalow on the far end of the island with the best beach (good snorkeling among the blue coral). It was very cheap, but basic. The staff was friendly. The food, which is included, was good. A chicken laid an egg on my outside table.
On Plantation Island. I arranged this through an agent in the Nadi airport when I landed. It was a comfortable place and right on the beach. There are various activities to enjoy. I kayaked, played tennis, fished, drank kava, mini golfed, and stuff. (Check comments)
Next to Bali is the island of Lombok. Just off the coast of Lombok are the three little Gili Islands: Gili Air, Gili Meno, and Gili Trawangan. I flew in from Bali to Lombok and took a bus to the coast. You are pretty much required to take a horse cart ride for 2 blocks to the boat ramp. From there you sail to the Gilis. I spent my first night on Gili Air, then skipped over Gili Meno to Gili Trawangan. The beach is really beautiful and though there isn’t much coral, the water right off the beach is full of many kinds of fish, great for snorkeling. The bungalows were cheap (I stayed in two different ones), but I hear that more expensive classy places are taking over, too bad. (See comments).
Where Angkor is. These bungalows were quite nice, but for Cambodia, a bit pricey at $35. However, dinner was included in an open air dining area with live Cambodian music. (one more shot in comments)
I forget the name of the resort (actually, we stayed in 2 different places), but the price was about $30 a night and the bungalows were very modern and roomy, plus right on the beach. See comments.
