Think of an archetypal tropical paradise – palm-fringed beaches with stretches of white sand, coconut groves and lush, mountainous rainforests – and you will be close to picturing the island of Koh Samui. Once a Thai fishing community, the island retains its original charm and natural beauty whilst being superbly well set-up for holiday-makers.
First becoming popular as a back-packers’ destination – think full-moon parties and beach-shack accommodation – Koh Samui has undergone something of a transformation to a much more upmarket and luxurious island, but despite its popularity quiet corners of serenity can still be found.
Should you tire of the beach, all around the coast there are hidden treasures to discover; ornate spirit houses, Buddhist temples and natural rock formations.
Clickstay’s Koh Samui villas are available to rent across the range of resorts, stylish and busy or tranquil and relaxed.
