When visiting Koh Samui, Thailand, you will find that you have arrived at an island paradise located in Southeast Asia. This is the second largest island off the coast of Thailand and is an extremely popular resort location for travelers.
Very popular in the way of accommodations are the sumptuous villas that are available and very numerous, most of them on the beaches, or near to the beaches. You can book a two bedroom villa, which will easily accommodate 4 to 5 people, or for larger groups, 5 and 6 bedroom villas are available. These luxurious stand-alone villas have very large sized rooms, full sized kitchens, all with the latest in modern appliances, a living room area, in in most cases, a private pool.
Most are located right on the beach, nestled back into a protective cove of coconut trees, yet still close enough to the beach to be just a few steps away. Can you imagine anything better that to be able to walk a few paces to your spot on the sandy beach, while enjoying the cool ocean breeze? Take a dip in the water, or simply stay in the sun.
There are villas located in higher elevations, for the most vibrant and breathtaking views of the bay of Thailand. The magic of the mountains set against the clear, blue sky and looking out across the broad waters is one of the most awe-inspiring sights that you would every want to see.
One of the very sought after and popular beach areas is Chaweng Beach, where the sunsets are spectacular and the settings luxurious. There is shopping and restaurants close by, and transportation and excursions near as well. Other beach areas where villas can be had are Bo Phut Beach and Lipa Noi Beach.
Events and festivals that are interesting to see include the Buffalo Fighting Festival, the Samui Regatta, The Ten Stars Samui Art Party, and the Samui Triathon.
There are currently over 17,400 hotel rooms and rentals in Koh Samui, and more are being built as the mild climate and luxurious scenery lures more tourists to the area. There are many hotels, bungalows, resorts, and of course the many villas. The luxury Samui villas have such demand that it is good to book them months in advance, and in that way you will be assured of the accommodations that will fill the wishes you have for your vacation.
