Koh Samui is Thailand’s third largest island. Once a fishing village and coconut plantation, it is now known as a major, luxurious getaway destination. It is easy to get to and from Bangkok but despite its proximity to this major city, it is itself charming and relaxed even though it has grown in recent years. One of the main areas of growth is that of hotels and villas.
When choosing a villa rental on Koh Samui, there are overwhelming options. First, decide on the type of getaway that interests you. Is it one where you will enjoy spa days and return to your villa for a freshly prepared chef’s meal and cocktails on your balcony? Or, do you and your family and kids need a little more action such as going out to see the landmarks?
Koh Samui is known for many beautiful beaches, so it is great for relaxing with your toes in the sand or for water sport adventures. When you get back to dry land, enjoy the luxurious spas and retreats to restore yourself, body, mind and soul.
Once you decide the nature of your trip, you will be better able to choose the type of accommodations that will suit you. All kinds of villas from traditional to modern await you near Chaweng, Choeng Mon, Nathon and Bophut. Be sure to choose which type of view you want from your villa. There are some that are perched up on hilltops, making the views unbelievable.
Do you want a place that is central to where others are gathering? There are places that are great for those who want to travel in groups and party the days and nights away. Then there are places that are more secluded, making them the perfect place for a romantic vacation.
If you plan to take tours of the island, make sure you book with a place that handles day trip arrangements. No one knows the island as well as the people who run the most popular destinations, so put your plans in their care for a chance to see everything worthwhile.
Price will be important in making your final decision, but there are so many options for places to stay that there is sure to be a villa that works for your budget.
