Accommodation in Koh Samui

In the Gulf of Thailand is Koh Samui, the second-largest Thai island and a major tourism destination in Asia. Within just over 200 square kilometres of land, Koh Samui is home to some of the world's best beaches, lush rainforest, and endless restaurants serving up delicious and authentic Thai cuisine. The busiest part of the island is undoubtedly Chaweng, a beach boasting clean white sand, calm blue waters, endless attractions, and a variety of nightlife options. Nearby Lamai beach is similar, albeit on a smaller scale, and it is also home to the historic Wat Lamai Temple and the Wat Khunaram. Top pastimes to enjoy while in Koh Samui include surfing, snorkelling, and scuba diving, with some of the best diving spots being the tiny islands of Ko Kra and Koh Losin. If you've had your fill of the amazing beaches on Koh Samui, head to attractions like the Laem Sor Pagoda, the Big Buddha Temple, or the iconic Grandmother and Grandfather Rocks. For those travelling with children, don't miss the Samui Aquarium, the impressive Butterfly Garden, or the Bophut Elephant Camp. Definitely buy a fresh coconut to drink right on the beach, and dig into amazing Thai culinary specialties like grilled satay, fresh curried snapper, and Pad Thai.

Hotels and Accommodation

You will be spoiled for choice when it comes to picking out the perfect Koh Samui accommodation. The island is full of accommodation options, and here at Expedia.co.nz we offer deals to help you afford the right hotel for your budget. A family resort in Koh Samui might be one in a more quite area like Mae Nam, while many of the boutique Koh Samui resorts are in secluded spots like Choeng Mon and the South Coast. Cheap Koh Samui beach hotels close to all the nightlife are also an option, and most are concentrated in the Chaweng Beach area.

Best time to Travel and Getting There

While you could opt to get to Koh Samui by boat from the Thai mainland or one of the other outlying islands, most visitors choose to fly directly into the Koh Samui Airport (USM), which is just six kilometres from the hotels on Chaweng Beach. Taxis, hotel shuttles, and songteows, or group taxis, are available for airport transfers at affordable rates. Getting a rental car in Koh Samui might be a good choice for those staying further from the airport. The temperature in Koh Samui remains at a steady average of 25 degrees year around, but there is a distinct rainy season in October and November each year.
