Experience Ko Samui holiday homes to rent

Ko Samui's got a reputation as 1 of Thailand's more upmarket islands, but the truth is that Ko Samui vacation rentals have something to suit all budgets and tastes. If you're in the market for high-end dining and luxury spas then you're onto a winner, but equally if you're more about beers on the beach and hiking trips into the interior jungle then Ko Samui's got that covered, too. The island does a great line in temples, the diving possibilities are fantastic, and it's got the kind of nightlife scene that's made Thailand a top travel destination for decades.

Things to do

Sightseeing near Ko Samui holiday rentals

Even the most dedicated beachgoer can only lounge on the sands for so long, and when you're finished, an excursion to 1 of the island's temples (or 'wats') is a Ko Samui classic. Among the most popular are Wat Phra Yai – with its 15-metre Buddha – and Wat Khunaram, which is famous for displaying a mummified monk. If you're looking for a hiking destination, then the waterfalls at Na Mueang are something a bit special, while selfies in front of the anatomically shaped Grandmother and Grandfather rocks on Lamai Beach are a regular fixture on social media.


Things to do near Ko Samui holiday homes

Ask any returning traveller about Ko Samui vacation rentals, and chances are their eyes will light up with visions of the island's famous palm-fringed beaches. During the day, it's all about sunning yourself and cooling off in the water, and by night, many of them light up with beach bars. If you like it lively, head for Chaweng, but if you want to dial the volume right down, try the more tranquil spots of Mae Nam or the south coast. Luxury-seekers can book into 1 of the island's upscale spas, while intrepid types will be drawn to diving trips and jungle treks.


Local weather for your stay in Ko Samui holiday homes

Ko Samui's got a tropical climate, but it's less tropical than most of the rest of Thailand. As you'd expect, it's hot year round, but it tends to be drier than elsewhere in the country, especially during the monsoon season (April to September), when the obligatory rain storms come in shorter bursts. The flipside comes towards the end of the year, when the rain picks up for Ko Samui vacation rentals and eases off elsewhere in Thailand. If you're not a great fan of the wet stuff then you'll want to book for February, which is usually the driest month.
