Luxury Koh Samui Holidays

Temples, waterfalls, white-sand beaches

Koh Samui

Koh Samui provides everything you need for an exotic island getaway; sugar white sand, swaying palm trees, secluded coves and luxury villas. It’s easy to see why it’s one of the most popular islands in Thailand – the island is full of natural beauty, and surrounded by coconut groves and dense rainforest. So, grab a fresh coconut and relax, as Koh Samui promises a truly luxurious escape.

Koh Samui is the perfect location for couples, families and solo adventurers alike. Whether you’re looking for a sun soaked escape for relaxation only, or you’re looking to get active, the island has something for you. Choose to book an island hopping tour through the marine national park, take a 4WD tour through the jungle or enjoy an afternoon of sea kayaking. Those who enjoy diving will be thrilled to know that Koh Samui is also a great base from which to explore some of Thailand’s best dive sites. Expect to see a large diversity of tropical fish and dazzling coral reefs - and it’s not uncommon to see turtles.

Luxury holidays in Koh Samui

Holidays in Koh Samui comprise of languid beach days, where you’ll be able to swim and sunbathe on one of the most beautiful islands in Thailand. Expect to enjoy gourmet dining and upmarket shopping, from designer stores to smaller local markets. There are also plenty of opportunities for massages on the beach or a full day of indulgence in a deluxe spa centre.

We recommend a stay at Six Senses Samui, an intimate resort where guests can enjoy their own private villa set among tropical forest. The villas offer staggering views over the ocean and many of them even have their own private pool. Enjoy the resort’s award winning restaurant “Dining on the Rocks,” which sits on the tip of a headland and provides world class views over the Gulf of Thailand. Don’t forget to take a dip in the infinity pool or indulge in the Six Senses Spa.

Koh Samui's airport is one of the most extraordinary airports I have ever flown into, with its beach hut-style building and surrounding greenery. There is nowhere else in the world where you feel like you are on an exotic holiday before you have even left the airport!

When to go

Thailand has a tropical climate, which means it’s hot and humid for most of the year. Rainy months vary depending on where you are in Thailand: in south-western areas like Phuket, the monsoon season starts around April and finishes in October, while south-east destinations like Koh Samui see more rain between September and December (there’s still plenty of sunshine between showers, though). The hottest months are March to June, although humidity is high and average temperatures can push 40°C. Wait until after the rainy season if you prefer slightly cooler temperatures – between December and February, averages stick to the high 20s and early 30s.

Visa Information

British passport holders do not require a visa for stays of up to 30 days.


Tipping is not expected in Thailand, although most hotels and restaurants will include a 10% service charge.
