The paradise island of Koh Samui is located in the Gulf of Thailand, approximately 84 kilometres east of Surat Thani Province, just an hours flying time from Bangkok. Known as the Coconut Island, Koh Samui is justifiably one of the most famous and popular attractions of Thailand. With an area of 247 square kilometres it is the countries third largest island after Phuket and Koh Chang. Despite the fast pace of development, Koh Samui has been able to maintain its charm and classical image of a tropical island as the law states that nothing can be built higher than a coconut tree!
Hat Chaweng and Hat Lamai (Hat being the Thai word for beach) are Koh Samui’s two most beautiful and most popular beaches. Both have a huge selection of accommodations suitable for every budget, but Koh Samui has many other beaches to choose from as well as the main two. The ambience of each beach is different; they vary from the busy restaurants and raucous nightlife found on Hat Chaweng to the charm and sophistication of Bo Phut and Mae Nam, let your consultant know what it is you’re looking for and we will try and recommend the best option for you. Apart from its many lovely beaches and tranquil bays, Koh Samui is also noted for its high quality coconuts that grow just about everywhere.
Koh Phan Ngan and Koh Tao are both near Koh Samui; Phan Ngan is known the world over for its famous full moon parties and Koh Tao for its tremendous diving. While it is easy for us to arrange for you to stay on either of these islands, accommodation on these two islands is generally not up to the same standard found on Koh Samui.
