Koh Samui is a magical island to the South East of Thailand. A place made up of stunning beaches, temples, night markets, delicious food and so much more. Koh Samui is Thailand’s second largest island and enjoys a warm yearly climate. It started life as a fishing and coconut farming community which still thrives today and is filled with the welcoming charm and warmth of its local inhabitants. It is surrounded by about 60 other islands, which are together composed of the Ang Thong Marine National Park, Koh Phangan, famous for its monthly full moon parties; Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan.
From the hustle and bustle of Chaweng Beach; to the lively, yet relaxed, atmosphere of Lamai ; to the timeless feel of Bophut’s Fisherman’s Village, with their weekly Friday evening ‘walking street’ market; to the tropical beach paradise of Mae Nam; Koh Samui is a truly unique destination.
Koh Samui, unlike Phuket which is connected to the main land by a bridge, is an island in the traditional sense, accessible only by air or boat. Bangkok airways offer 50 daily flights and direct international connections to Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur with further direct flights to Dubai, Shanghai and Bali in the pipeline.
Furthermore there are ferry services to all neighbouring islands and to the mainland.
In addition to all of the attractions that Koh Samui has to offer it also boasts an excellent choice of European schools, renown private hospitals, well-being clinics and spas, dental care and shopping. A worldwide array of fresh food is available from a choice of international supermarkets. ‘Tops’, ‘Big C’, and ‘Tesco’ cater for the most cosmopolitan of visitors. However sampling the Thai local street food will make you feel as though you tasted culinary heaven – although be aware of how spicy things can be! There are a variety of low to high-end restaurants and hotels tempting you with whatever your heart desires. No matter what, Koh Samui has become a truly all-embracing destination with all the boutique charm a visitor craves and expects when exploring Thailand.
Nestled in the Bophut Hills, above Fisherman’s Village overlooking the Gulf of Thailand and the island of Koh Phangan lies the development which will help you escape into paradise and “BE FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD”.
