How much does it cost to stay?

Lanna Samui comes in at £93 per night for a deluxe studio suite.

The Code Samui hotel costs around £116 per night for their one bedroom pool & terrace suite.

Shiva Samui ranges from £94 to £800 per night dependant on what kind of room and package you choose!

Finally, the Intercontinental costs around £200 per night for two people sharing in March.

Did the cast all stay together?

It doesn’t seem that all the Essex crew stayed in one place.

It’s likely that the cast was spread between the four hotels mentioned by Amazing Thailand.

However they would have met up for activities, beach parties and blazing rows, we’re sure.

They chilled out at Chi Beach Bar Samui and Nikki beach according to Amazing Thailand.
