Luxury Koh Samui Holidays

Koh Samui is an old hand when it comes to holidays - it was the go-to island back when Thailand first started making waves on the travel scene. Visitors were originally drawn in by its white-sand beaches, nodding palms and first-rate snorkelling and diving. Nowadays, you can add luxury hotels, gourmet restaurants and slick beach clubs to the mix.

Chaweng is the liveliest resort on the island, with a big helping of restaurants, late-night bars and shops. The beach is one of Koh Samui's best. If you prefer things a little quieter, but still want amenities on hand, head a little way down the coast to Lamai. Bophut has a village feel, with lots of small cafés and restaurants (some right on the sandy beach), as well as shops selling handicrafts and local art. Mae Nam, on the north coast, has a huge, palm-edged sandy beach and a peaceful, laid-back feel.

Things to do in Koh Samui


Explore Ang Thong National Marine Park
Ang Thong is an archipelago of islands close to Koh Samui. As it's a national park, only approved boats can enter. Join a trip or charter a private boat for added luxury and spend the day exploring jungle-clad mountains, discovering virgin beaches and hidden coves, and snorkelling among hundreds of tropical fish.

Gaze up at the Big Buddha Temple
If you've got a window seat on the plane, you'll spot the Big Buddha Temple before you even land on Koh Samui. The temple, also known as Wat Phra Yai, is home to a huge, 12-metre-high gold Buddha statue, which sits serenely at the top of a flight of stairs. Stop by early in the morning and you'll see locals lighting incense and leaving offerings of fruit and flowers at the base of the statue.

Swim beside Na Muang waterfall
Na Muang is actually two separate waterfalls - imaginatively named Na Muang 1 and Na Muang 2. The name comes from the purple hue of the rocks that they tumble down. Na Muang 1 is the larger and more impressive fall. It flows into a natural pool at the bottom, which is surrounded by bottle-green jungle.
