Koh Samui, one of Thailand’s most popular tropical islands, ideal for couples to indulge themselves with a variety of activities. Visitors are encouraged spoil themselves at the spas, take walks along the beach, lounge at the pool and enjoy the atmosphere of relaxation.

Koh Samui is never dull, with a myriad of great restaurants and bars to choose from. Namu, located at the W Hotel Koh Samui and Pla Pla at the Four Seasons Koh Samui offer you great, finely crafted meals, brunch over panoramic views or cocktails that will tickle your senses. Experience a fantastic nightlife along the Chaweng Beach Road.

The actual gay scene on the island is quite small. There is no bespoke gay beach in Koh Samui, but most of the gay tourists and locals head over to Central Chaweng beach, around the end of Soi Lamdin for their relaxation and sunbathing.
