Stay here and you’ve pretty much all you need to enjoy your break to the maximum. The beach, with its white sands and clear blue waters are the first diversion.

Each of the pools has a nearby Jacuzzi for the ultimate chill-out experience.

Destination info


A tropical climate with high humidity means an average temperature of 36°C. There are three seasons: dry, hot and the very wet monsoon season.

Shopping in Koh Samui is excellent. There are three main shopping areas - offering everything from souvenirs to Thai silk.

Take a trip to the local Ang Thong Marine Park for lovely beaches, deep limestone caves and hidden blue lagoons.

Inland, sights to see are the HinLat and Na Muang waterfalls. An organised hike will take you to see them and other natural beauties.

The Big Buddha Temple, with its 12m high Buddha sitting on a small islet connected to the main island by an unpaved causeway, is a huge attraction on the north of the island, set in beautiful gardens.

If you’re around during the Thai New Year, prepare to get soaked. The Songkhran Water Festival is lots of very wet fun. New Moon parties are also another excuse to have a great local night (and early morning) out.
With such clear and warm seawaters, this is a wonderful place to dive or snorkel. The hotel will put you in touch with reliable dive guides, tour operators and instructors.

Get around the way the locals do on-board a ‘songthaew’, the red pick-up trucks that function as buses here.
