Koh Samui

Koh Samui is an island with a selection of top villa resorts located on one of the many white sandy beaches. From the hustle and bustle of Chaweng Beach to the lively yet relaxed atmosphere of Lamai Beach to the timeless feel of Bophut’s Fisherman’s Village to the tropical beach paradise of Maenam, Koh Samui is unique among Thailand’s islands in maintaining a broad appeal for everyone.

DINING, BARS AND NIGHTLIFE

Koh Samui is now a culinary destination in its own right with several world-class restaurants featuring extremely talented and innovative chefs; from genuine, traditional Thai cuisine to trendy fusion creations, Koh Samui’s best restaurants have a myriad of flavours for you to discover. As one of the prime holiday destinations in southern Thailand, Koh Samui hosts a great choice of nightlife entertainment options. The undisputed main area of nightlife on Samui is of course Chaweng, which is the Samui version of Patong Beach in Phuket; featuring a myriad of lounge clubs, naughty bars, beach bars, and discos, it is definitely the place to have fun at night. Each of the main resort towns in Koh Samui – Lamai, Bophut, and Maenam – also has interesting night spots to be discovered.
