Koh Samui hotel recommendations

Koh Samui hotels

Where ever you stay on Koh Samui we can arrange transfers for your tours, Samui is a pretty small island.

The main beach is Chaweng beach. It’s one of the better swimming beaches on Koh Samui as long as you don’t stay too far north. In the evening the beach restaurants are a wonderful place to dine with the sand in your toes. Chaweng beach also has most bars and clubs, all a mid much for middle aged duffers like us. If you want to party all night you’ll enjoy Chaweng. We prefer Lamai beach to the south which is more relaxed. You also get better value for money accommodation in Lamai. Between Chaweng beach and Lamai beach is Thongtakien bay which we really love. It’s got three small 3 star resorts that are great for families or couples. We also like the Fishermans village area of Bophut which has some trendy bars and cafes and some good seafood restaurants on the beach.
