Chaweng

Chaweng is the biggest town on the island of Koh Samui and has the longst beach too. It’s packed out with quality restaurants along its beautiful sandy beach and there are also plenty of unique shops and bars to be enjoyed. There are plenty of luxury villas to choose from offering the finest amenities including swimming pools, fully-stocked bars and more.

Bophut

Bophut is one of Koh Samui’s most charming, intimate villages and although the area is made up solely of old Chinese shop houses converted into elegant restaurants, bars and shops you can also stroll around the area at your leisure and indulge in its romance. There’s a Mediterranean feel to the area and villas of the highest quality can be found nearby.

Bang Rak

Bang Rak is home to the most famous landmark of Koh Samui – The Big Buddha. It sits on the beach and is near the airport which makes a convenient place to stay and relax. There are plenty of luxury villas to choose from and it’s less touristy than some of the other areas if you’re looking for a break from the mainstream.

Lipa Noi

Lipa Noi is on the west coast of the island and is famed for its laid back and non-tourist feel. It is at a safe distance from the commercial east coast and the beaches are untouched and spotless. With shallow seas and a prime location near the island’s main car ferry port it’s a brilliant location for families. Large, luxury villas are easily found and can cater for families of all sizes.

Plai Laem

Plai Laem is in the top right-hand corner of the isle and is extremely quiet, offering private villas and rental houses as well as luxury hotels. It’s ideal for a relaxing break and it’s only 10 minutes from Chaweng where all the action happens. Luxury villas to cater for couples or huge families can be found and you can enjoy the highest level of indulgence in the area.

A trip to Koh Samui will be an exotic indulgence you’ll never forget and choosing to stay in one of these luxury destinations will make your trip even more memorable.

    As a frequent visitor to Koh Samui, I absolutely love Bophut and Lipa Noi areas for families. There are lots of amazing luxury hotels but we always enjoy hiring a villa, especially when it comes with a chef!
