Set the course to “chill” the moment you land. Only 6 minutes away from the Samui Airport is Chi Samui, a beach club that has everything you need to let loose: good food, handcrafted cocktails, a stunning view of the ocean—oh, and did we mention Samui’s first-ever Cannabis Menu? (They take finding your chi very seriously.) There’s also a swim-up bar and a 25m salt water infinity pool, perfectly perched on a pristine white beach in Bangak. And really, what more could you ask for?

Looking for a stay that’s within walking distance? Upni Duniya is only an 8-minute walk away (literally a 1-minute drive) and shares the same beach views along the Bangak shoreline, except this time, you can enjoy it from the privacy of your own infinity pool. This 9-bedroom beachfront villa also comes with a private gym, a cinema, and massage and spa services upon request, so you won’t run out of in-villa activities either.

2. Samui Elephant Haven

There’s no better place to get up close and personal with majestic elephants than an ethical sanctuary that gives them the care they deserve. Learn more about each elephant’s story as you spend some time in their natural habitat: follow along as they roam, forage, bathe, and play in this 60 rai haven. This meaningful encounter is a one-of-a-kind way to support local, ethical tourism.

Don’t want to stray too far? Baan Leelawadee, a quiet beachfront property, is also in Bophut, with calming sea views, a great entertainment system, and a private chef to rejuvenate you after a long, fun day with the elephants.

3. Coco Tam’s

If you’re planning to eat your way through the island, don’t miss Coco Tam’s in Bophut Beach. This beach bar and restaurant takes you from day to night, with smoothie bowls to start off your morning, a mouthwatering selection of pizza and pasta for your entrée, and colorful cocktails for a scenic night cap by the shore.

Interested in exploring more of Bophut? Find a place to stay that’s right in the area, like Villa M—aside from its great location, it also has direct beach access, a private pool, a rooftop jacuzzi and a private terrace for you to come home to after a long day of sightseeing.

4. Eranda Spa

After all the excitement that Samui has to offer, winding down with an authentic Thai massage is always a great idea. Eranda Herbal Spa is go-to for relaxation; you get to enjoy massage services, facial therapy, and various body treatments at a gorgeous mountainside location, against a postcard-worthy view of the Gulf of Thailand.

It’s a gem of a find, especially if you’re staying near Chaweng. Villas like Baan Jakawan are right in the neighborhood (only a 3-minute drive away!) so you can pop in for an appointment anytime, which is an absolute cherry on top if you’re staying in this 7-bedroom ocean view villa that has Samui’s largest villa infinity pool at 39.5m!
