These are some of the fanciest "tents" in the country. 

Samui is getting in on the Northern glamping trend.
 
Situated on Maenam Beach on the island’s north coast, the boutique pool villas of Khwan Beach Resort (www.khwanbeachresort.com) will welcome a new collection of luxury tents in mid-Jan at the special opening rate of B6,930 (from Jan 23), nearly half the full rate of B12,900.
 
The tents have mod-cons like air-con despite their 19th-century expedition vibe—think four-poster king beds, oil lamps, vintage wooden chairs, leather trunks and daybeds.
 
The location is close to the weekly walking street on Maenam Road and famous island food staples like Ko Seng, Kanomjeen Pa Maitree and even the posh Woo Bar at the east-end of the beach.
