Luxury Koh Samui Holidays

Temples, waterfalls, white-sand beaches

Koh Samui

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, too. If you prefer things a little quieter, but still want amenities on hand, head a little way down the coast to Lamai.

On the north coast, 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, while Mae Nam has a huge, palm-edged sandy beach and a peaceful, laid-back feel.

Annick Barbaria

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

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

Introduction to languages

The official language of Thailand is Thai. English is widely spoken too.
