About Koh Samui

Our Favourite Sights
Emblematic Buddhist temples abound in Koh Samui. Among the most notable ones is Wat Phra Yai, a small rocky island in the north-eastern corner of Samui with a 12-metre seated Buddha statue. Very close is Wat Plai Laem, a stunning example of unique, colourful architecture featuring an 18-arm statue of Guanyin and a lake that surrounds the temple.
The south of the Island is home to an unusual sight. Wat Khunaram displays in a shrine of the body of the monk Luong Pho Dang who died 1973 in a seated meditative position.
Close to the villas are some of the most beautiful beaches. The most popular, Chaweng, is perfect for swimming, local food and its nightlife. A bit more south is the smaller and less busy Chaweng Noi Beach and on the way to Lamai, the second largest beach known for its relaxing atmosphere, is the charming little bay called Silver Beach, particularly good for swimming, snorkelling or sunbathing. Also worth a visit is the Choeng Mon Beach in the north of Samui, a quiet spot perfect for a long walk during sunset.
Ang Thong National Marine Park
Perfect for a day trip is the Emerald Lake, a stunning highlight of the mainly uninhabited 42 island archipelago, Ang Thong National Marine Park.
It is worth to climb up the pathways and wooden staircase for 20 to 30 minutes to the peak of a nearby mountain. The breathtaking view on the surroundings and on the glittering sea-green saltwater lagoon encircled by huge limestone walls and a succulent green forest is a memorable experience. After the walk back you can end your trip with some snorkelling, a swim or kayaking.
Only 15 km away from the villas, situated in the centre of the island, is Samui’s highest waterfall Na Muang. This 30 m rocky waterfall is a popular spot to cool off. Completely opposite and just a small hike through the forest away is Na Muang 2; its little private rock pool rewards the legs after the climb.
Another two outstanding waterfalls are Nam Tok Wang Saotong, easily accessible from the ring road and the Hin Lad waterfall, reachable over a dense jungle path (flip-flops are not recommended for this one).
The South Coast
This coast consists of some smaller natural beaches like Bang Kao and offers a perfect retreat for an undisturbed day off the popular sites. A famous landmark is the impressive golden Laem Sor Chedi, built directly by the water. As the area is rather undeveloped, swimming is not recommended. However, the views are beautiful and the two islands that can be spotted at the horizon, Koh Tan and Koh Madsum, are ideal for a short visit to enjoy snorkelling, mountain biking or a peaceful bath at the natural, almost empty beaches.
Koh Pha-ngan is with 125 km2 the second biggest island in the archipelago and easily reachable from Samui. As Koh Samui, it has stunning beaches, waterfalls, beautiful temples and various attractions to offer. The hilly landscape creates fantastic viewpoints all over the island.
Apart from its popular sunset spots, the island is most famous for its parties. Especially the annual Full Moon Party attracts thousands of people who celebrate for several days at the Haad Rin Nok beach until sunrise.
The ‘Turtle Island’ Koh Tao with its exquisite white sand beaches and perfectly clear water is the dream destination for scuba divers and snorklers. The coral reefs of the 21 km2 small island are home to a variety of exciting and colourful sea creatures. Just recently ‘discovered’ it is less inhabited and has less sights than the surrounding islands. Despite this, the Island’s infrastructure is constantly growing and therefore offers activities for every taste. Ideal for a short visit.
