Thailand, Koh Samui (3 days +)

Koh Samui’s location off the east coast of southern Thailand in the sheltered Gulf of Thailand makes it an ideal spot for some quality island time during the western monsoon period that affects Krabi and Phuket.

For our recommended island sojourn we’ve selected Mae Nam – one of the island’s quietest and most unspoilt beaches, which to us makes for an ideal combination of  a gorgeous and uncrowded beach with easy access to the restaurants, night-life and shopping of nearby Chaweng or Lamai.

The Maenam Resort offers superbly designed individual wooden chalets set in a garden facing the beach.
