Welcome to Ko Samui

Explore Ko Samui

Situated in an archipelago of crystal waters and stunning islands, Koh Samui is paradise on earth. It is one of Thailand’s biggest islands and also one of its most beautiful, with miles of idyllic beach, rice fields and tropical rainforest. This natural beauty for which it became famous remains, but holidayers will also find a healthy nightlife and excellent dining options in the busier areas.

About Ko Samui

Until the late 1970s the island was home to only a small fishing community, and was fairly isolated from the mainland

  • Today about 40,000 people live on Koh Samui full time.
  • Over 800,000 sunseekers, partiers and families holiday on the island annually.

Where to Stay

Koh Samui is well prepared for visitors with any budget and there are some incredible villas and apartments across the island to complete the perfect beach holiday. If you’re keen to hit the nightlife of Koh Samui, it’s best to find a villa in Chaweng or Lamai where most of the clubs and bars are located. If you want to be near the shops and restaurants of Chaweng without being in the party zone, look for accommodation at the far north or south ends of the beach. For total peace and quiet, try a holiday rental in the north of the island, where the beaches are beautiful but a lot less crowded. Bophut Beach is one of the best places to eat out on Samui, and has a pretty beach and plenty of charming accommodation, without the hustle and bustle of Chaweng or Lamai.

Things to Do

Adapt to island time on Koh Samui and take it easy. Lounge on Chaweng Beach and pick up some delicious pad thai from one of the many street vendors when hunger strikes. There’s no shortage of more elegant dining experiences on offer either, with some top chefs from around the world having set up shop here. Join a scuba expedition and spend a leisurely day island-hopping aboard a chartered yacht and diving around the tropical underwater coral and sealife. For a look at old Koh Samui, explore Hua Thanon, a well preserved traditional muslim fishing village that hasn’t changed much in the years since tourism hit. Indulge yourself with a massage on the beach, or for full relaxation, book into one of the many well regarded day spas on the island: the standards are high and prices much lower than at home. At night, enjoy a cocktail and dance the night away!

Eating and Drinking

Koh Samui’s enduring popularity with travellers from all over the globe means there is a huge range of dining options, from European and American cuisine to traditional Thai street food. Down by the beach, under the coconut palms, hawkers concoct deliciously spicy noodle dishes, one of the more authentic Thai meals on the island. It is definitely the best way to refuel in between swims and sunbathing sessions. For a light, cooling snack, simply buy a fresh coconut from a vendor. A holiday on Koh Samui is also a great opportunity to learn more about Thai cuisine. Book a class with a local, and spend the afternoon learning curry and stir-fry recipes that will stay with you for a lifetime. Classes also often involve a trip to the local market, where you’ll get to meet local farmers and buy homegrown herbs and spices.

Getting Around

Koh Samui is easily reached by plane from Bangkok. The airport is towards the north of the island and reasonably-priced taxis can be booked from there to anywhere on Koh Samui. The island can also be accessed by ferry from Surat Thani on the mainland to Nathon Port on the west coast. Though the first road was only constructed as recently as the late 1970’s, Koh Samui is now well connected and the island can be crossed on road in about half an hour. Tuk-tuks and taxis are always within a few feet of you and are a fun, cheap way to hop between your villa and the beaches. Jeeps are also increasingly popular. Motorbikes are also cheap to rent and are an easy way to beach hop or explore the inland further, but as in the rest of Thailand, accidents are frequent, so take care.

Seaview Villa 4 Bedroom with Pool

We spent days there in our annual family reunion and it was very good for that. The place itself leaves little to wish for, well equipped, just good sized rooms and park and private terrace, too. I think the sauna isn't required really. ...
