Interview with The Boudoir by

The team would love to know more about the people behind this amazing place, so we got in touch with them for a short interview. Check it out below.

Could you give us a short intro about yourself and The Boudoir?

We love working with people. We are passionate and attentive towards our customers and aim to offer them a beautiful evening. That’s why we created The Boudoir to be a cosy, warm, friendly and romantic place.

What got you started? Why Samui?

We spent 10 years of vacation in Koh Samui and decided then to settle here, enjoy a great quality of life and, above all, realise a dream, my husband’s dream.

We arrived in October 2010 with the will to not work anymore and live a peaceful life on the beautiful island of Koh Samui. Days were nice but became repetitive in the long run. So after two years we decided to get busy, meet new people and share with them. That’s what we do today and we are really happy about it!!!

What are the challenges and what have you learned overcoming them?

The challenges are to ensure the consistency of the service, to continuously challenge ourselves and provide the best for our customers. So far, we have managed to do that.

How do you find the inspirations for The Boudoir?

We find our ideas from magazines, websites, and also from discussions with our customers. From those inspirations, we find our ways to implement them.
