Koh Samui is a cozy island in Thailand that has something for every kind of traveler. Every year hundreds and thousands of people visit Thailand in search of the ultimate holiday experience. While Phuket is the main attraction, Koh Samui is probably more deserving of the attention. With its pristine blue waters, palmed resorts and wonderful hospitality it is surely gaining the recognition it truly deserves.
A good option for travelers will be to rent a villa. This has become a common feature in the island simply because of the benefits it offers. However, you should rent a villa based on some research that you must do prior to booking. Spending all that money on renting a space that does not suit your needs will be a wasted effort and investment. Staying on the beach on Koh Samui is one of the best experiences money can buy – while I was there I got a nice beach villa here.
Some of the things you must pay attention to are:
- Families: These private villas work very well for those wanting the comfort of a home outside of your own home. In addition, children can be comfortable running around and having fun without worrying about bothering guests of the hotel or resort. Most villas are equipped with a good swimming pool and you can use the facility as a family again without the worry of other guests.
- Location: There are quite a few villas that are on the beach-side meaning that through your stay, you will have access to a restricted beach. Typically, public beaches can be a nightmare with the public bathrooms and the crowd. Swimming on the beach knowing that it is your space alone makes it an even more enjoyable experience.
- Groups: If you are traveling with a large group of family or friends, this is a perfect option for you considering that this will give you the privacy you need. These villas are usually rented for weddings (you have a small one and large ones to accommodate larger groups as well).
The above clearly indicates that if you are someone who wants a holiday in a good tourist destination but wants to stay away from the crowd, villa rental is a good option for you.
