Koh Samui encapsulates everything a relaxed sun-seeking traveller is looking for, from beach parties, health & wellness at exclusive spas, watching the sunset from a hammock or enjoying world-class cuisine. Koh Samui has reinvented itself as Thailand’s most luxurious holiday island with its simple beachside bungalows, with many luxury resorts or villas attractive long-stay visitors on the many pure white sand beaches.
Chaweng Beach proves to be one of the busier beaches of Koh Samui, but travellers seeking relaxed beach vibes should visit Lamai Beach. For a tropical beach escape, Maenam is a quiet beach which is great for families. Visitors will see less vendors at Maenam, but will be spoiled for choice with restaurants and markets nearby.
