Welcome to Samui Island
Ko Samui (เกาะสมุย) is a world-renowned island situated in the Gulf of Thailand, 84 km to the east of Surat Thani. It covers an area of 247 sq km. The road around the island (Thawi Rat Phakdi Road) is 52 km long. Only one third of the total area surrounded by mountains is a plain. The best time for a visit is from January to May when the sea is calm. Many beautiful white sandy beaches of Ko Samui are well-known; such as, Hat Chaweng, Hat Na Thian, Hat Taling Ngam, and Hat Lamai. It is an ideal island for visitors who wish to enjoy the sea, sand, breeze, and sunlight. A long coastal line fringed with coconut trees together with the crystal-clear sea attracts visitors to make countless revisits. Fresh seafood is another charm that keeps reminding visitors of this island.
Apart from the crystal-clear sea, Ko Samui has a tourist activity that has become popular among visitors from around the world, – a spa service. This kind of health service associated with hydrotherapy, including bathing, soaking in mineral or hot water, massaging, and phyto-aromatherapy, is available in both hotels and spa centres, having a specific atmosphere, comfort, and excellent services to make visitors really relax. For golfers, golf courses are on offer as well.
The natural beauty plus comfort the island has to offer is also combined with art and culture which is the foundation of many other communities on the island; such as, Wat Samret, Wat Lamai, Chedi Laem So, etc.
