Where to Stay During This Season?

During the peak tourist season, most of the Koh Samui 5-star hotels such as the SAii Koh Samui Choengmon and most other accommodation options get fully booked. Apart from hotels and resorts, there are Airbnb’s, hotels and even apartments that can be rented for the season – whichever option you choose, make sure to book it in advance due to the aforementioned reason.
