Koh Samui, Thailand
From Europe to Latin America, from Australia to the USA, very many people now recognise the name of Koh Samui, and for good reason. This beautiful tropical island has been charming its visitors ever since the first tourists arrived in 1971. Those who experience Samui are rewarded with an idyllic tropical retreat with little traffic, white-sand beaches, a sapphire-blue sea, an abundance of tantalising Thai cuisine and an unusually warm and friendly people.
Koh Samui is just 21 kilometres at its widest point and 25 at its longest. Its hinterland consists of forested hills of limestone and granite, and the shoreline is made up of countless palm-fringed beaches and bays.
With direct air links to an increasing number of international destinations, or just an hour's flight from Bangkok, Koh Samui is easily reached, and yet remains an idyllic island in the sun. Against an interior of lush green hills, a shoreline studded with white sandy beaches and quiet coves, it offers an enormous range of leisure activities.
Azur Samui is located in charming Maenam - just 10 minutes from the Santiburi golf course, 20 minutes from the airport, and 20 minutes from the extensive shopping, diverse restaurants, and vibrant nightlife of Chaweng. Nestled in the hills, it commands spectacular views out over the Gulf to the neighbouring island of Koh Pha Ngan. It’s an unsurpassed setting.
