They come for the clear blue sea, the soft white sand shaded by gently swaying palm trees...and some of the best accommodation options outside the capital. There are luxurious resorts and upmarket hotels as well as a range of more budget options. But it doesn't stop there. Not only does Samui have its own airport, but you can indulge virtually every activity and taste here, from plush spas and world-class cuisine to swanky beach bars and hopping nightclubs.
Many of the beaches offer watersports, snorkelling and scuba diving, and there are opportunities for enjoying yoga, sampling Muay Thai, trying your hand at Thai cookery, and playing a round or two of golf.
Our Spin Koh Samui is known as Coconut island, given the number of coconut plantations it has, so if you're going to try fresh coconut anywhere then this is the place to do it. If you stop by at the right time you may even have your coconut handpicked fresh by a local, furry, employee... a monkey!
