Koh Samui, Thailand Hotels

4 Apr

When planning our upcoming trip to Thailand, we got stuck on deciding which hotel to stay in in each area. There are so many questions that come to mind when choosing a hotel: is this a good area? how is the service? is this within walking distance to the sights? etc. etc. etc. Despite the answers to these questions, the Thai people are known for their excellent service so pretty much wherever you stay, you know you are in good hands.

For the Koh Samui leg of our trip, we ultimately decided on staying at Beach Republic in Lamai beach but there were so many great hotels we considered that I wanted to share some of them, in case they suit your needs.

Location tip: after doing quite a bit of research and speaking with people who’ve visited Koh Samui, we realized there are two places you are better off staying in if you want a taste of the nightlife but don’t care to be right in the heart of it (aka Chaweng Beach): Lamai Beach or Bophut Beach (aka Fisherman’s Village).

Here are some of the Koh Samui hotels that were top of mind when we planned our Thailand trip:
