Hotels in Koh Samui, Thailand
If you’re getting excited about the prospect of your trip to this paradise island, then Koh Samui hotels
are sure to get your pulse racing ever higher. Drenched in the natural luxury of those idyllic beaches,
picking your accommodation promises to be an experience in itself.
Chaweng is the most popular spot to stay in, boasting as it does a spectacular beach lined by hotels
offering varying standards of luxury. The sands don't feel overcrowded however, and there are
plenty of restaurants and bars to replenish yourself at after some serious sunbathing and lounging in
the water, while the shopping is more prevalent than anywhere else on the island.
The more expensive hotels front onto the beach, whereas the other side of the road will offer
generally lower prices while still being within touching distance of those white sands. What you do
miss out on is the view over the ocean that can be enjoyed from your hotel pool, so paying a little
more is something worth considering.
If you want to go for a quieter feel on your trip then look for hotels at Choeng Mon Beach on the
north east tip of the island. The beach is as picturesque as you could wish for, and there’s still a good
choice of bars and restaurants to choose from, which spill down into the sands for dazzling candlelit
Lamai Beach to the south east is another sumptuous spot with plenty of choice when it comes to
accommodation, while Maenam Beach is attractive for its quieter nature. For an even more castaway
experience try Silver Beach, in between Chaweng and Lamai.
Wherever you plump for, look out for the incredible infinity pools that punctuate Koh Samui’s
