Koh Samui is the kind of island that you just never forget!
It casts a spell, and creates fond memories that begins with the cutest airport you have ever seen. There are yoga schools and health resorts, gilded pagodas and shrines, a rum distillery, gorgeous beaches and three million coconut trees.
If you visit Koh Samui, a small island off the coast of Thailand, you will discover small villages built entirely of bamboo; lush jungle interiors and turquoise-fringed beaches. Samui’s amazing landscapes are just a fraction of the appeal, as local culture gives you a taste of the region’s Asian traditions and a unique heritage preserved in hidden Buddhist temples with their iconic, gilded-red roofs, and resilient fishing villages on the coast.
More than a holiday, more than a destination, it is a pocket of nostalgia, a flashback to a more innocent, more exuberant time. While tourism and a burgeoning bohemian class of artists has brought a wave of new resorts and international restaurants to the dusty white shores, Koh Samui still offers a casual, relaxed alternative to more traditional beach vacations.
Whether you’re looking for a modern spa getaway, a luxury International resort, an Independent boutique bungalow, a luxury villa or seeking to slip back into the age of coconut harvesting and the Muay Thai martial arts scene, Koh Samui has it all.
