The 7 Best Hotels In Koh Samui

Our favourite island in Thailand, Koh Samui is pure paradise. Sleek beachside resorts, swim-up cocktail bars and a huge range of places to eat makes Koh Samui a top choice.

So, which Koh Samui hotel should you stay in? We’ve rounded up the7 best hotels on the island for an unforgettable trip.

1. Banyan Tree Samui

Banyan Tree Samui is nestled amid the lush jungle of a private bay in Lamai. Spacious villas feature a private terrace with sweeping views of the ocean and your own private infinity pool.

Utter luxury at its best.

2. Four Seasons Resort

Villas look out onto the ocean and feature private massage pavilions, sunken Japanese-style dining areas and sweeping infinity pools. Glass doors in the bathroom open onto a private deck so you can bathe in the outdoors.

A ‘Secret Garden’ spa is the cherry on the top.

3. The Library

A unique hotel on Chaweng Beach,  this is one of the most Instagrammable spots in Samui.

Designed with beautiful spaces for reading and an expansive library of over 1400 books available for guests to borrow. There’s also an incredible red swimming pool and private outdoor cinema.

4. Six Senses Koh Samui

A resort made up of 66 private villas, Six Senses is what every island resort should be like. Views of the Gulf of Thailand and a cliff-top dining restaurant make it extra special.

5. Anantara Lawana

Dine in the tree-tops and live your best life at this relaxing resort in Chaweng. Rooms come with open-air rain showers and four poster beds in a traditional Thai style and it’s mere minutes from the beach.

Complimentary yoga classes and smartphones for guests during their stay is a nice touch.

6. Tongsai Bay Resort

A family-run hotel located on 28 acres of greenery and its own private bay, Tongsai Bay is ideal for both couples and families. You’ll enjoy spacious swimming pools, yoga and wakeboarding (if you can tear yourself away from the sun lounger!)

The resort prides itself on its environmental awareness and has a no-chemical policy.

7. Beach Republic

We’ve written before about how much we love Beach Republic; this is the spot to stay in if you want that perfect mix of relaxation and party vibes.

Beach Republic The Residences is a collection of 42 private pool villas, stunning penthouses, and spacious suites.

The villas come with Porsche appliances, rain showers and hot tubs and the hotel itself has two swimming pools and a special Whiskey and Cigar lounge.
