If you're looking for a high-vibe, high-tech Thailand holiday, you won't find it on the island of Koh Samet. However, if you're looking for the whitest beaches in Thailand, this is the place to stay. There's no strict schedule in Koh Samet, free of the commercialization of some Thai attractions. The island is accessible by a 30 to 45-minute ferry ride from Ban Phe. Koh Samet was first designated as one of Thailand's national parks in 1981. You'll need to pay an entry fee to gain access to Koh Samet.
Finding a relaxing place to stay in Koh Samet isn't difficult. Spend a luxurious holiday at one of their upscale resort hotels, spas, or laid-back yet elegant cottage settings. Some resorts have spectacular hilltop ocean views. Relax in a hammock and enjoy the breeze, go for walks on the beach, and leave your watch behind in your room. Don't forget to get a massage, an affordable amenity at many of the resorts.
