The Conrad Koh Samui's openinhg has been delayed and delayed but they're now taking bookings beginning September 1. The property is all ocean view villas with private pools. The website suggests a one-bedroom villa, two-bedroom villa, and a presidential villa. I am currently in the process of trying to make a booking on points for November. Though the paid room rate is over US$800 per night, it's a category 6 hotel so 40,000 points per night... and oddly when I'm logged in as a Diamond member it's 32,000 points per night. Which means that my 5 night stay is pricing lower as a regular award than it is as a VIP multi-night award. I'm getting ~ 2.5 cents per Hilton points which is pretty crazy, I'm usually thrilled at a penny a point. Apparently though HHonors is having some weird system errors. Booking a 5-night stay I was 8k points short. I went to make the reservation and it wanted to charge me $264 to top off my points. So I went to straight up buy 10k points for $100 instead. But at the confirmation screen I got an error. It wouldn't let me buy points. So I went ahead and transferred the points needed in from Amex, there's a 20% bonus on Amex transfers through the end of the month which helps a little bit. Well, the website wouldn't recognize the points had been added at the confirmation screen, even though my account now reflected the 160k points I needed for the booking. It wanted to charge me $264. So I called. They saw I had the points, no problem. Set up the reservation. But couldn't issue a certificate and were told that they couldn't issue any certificates at the moment and to just call back tomorrow to have the reservation converted to an award. Frustrating, time consuming booking process but the property looks amazing and an amazing points value as well!
