Samui Holiday Rentals
The growth of the Koh Samui property market has benefited a great number of people, not least the many developers and land owners that have taken advantage of global interest in one of Thailand's most popular tourist destinations. Consumer groups have also benefited, including those looking to stay in a fabulous Samui Holiday Rental for a few days, week, a month or even longer. In fact, holidaymakers now enjoy an island positively filled with gorgeous private properties to rent, widely varying in size and style, also in terms of location and ambience.
Today, the Samui villa holiday market is decidedly upscale-as are many parts of the island-and therefore trends somewhat towards larger properties. In particular, families looking for a 3 or 4 bedroom Samui villa will find a large supply of rental properties on offer that are perfect for their needs. These larger residences come with everything one would expect to find at a similarly priced hotel or resort, with amenities such as private pools and Jacuzzis, as well as state of the art entertainment and security systems. Many Samui villas will even have full time staff, including a manager, housekeeping staff and even a chef, who can prepare delicious meals to order for guests staying in the villa.
Renting a holiday villa on the island has also become more attractive thanks to infrastructure improvements that have made getting to and around Samui easier than ever before. An especially beneficial development has been the expansion of Koh Samui’s international airport, allowing visitors to bypass the arduous ferry trip form the mainland and get straight to the beach. The island also has an asphalted ring road, which means getting from one part of the island to another takes a matter of minutes.
Samui is the third largest Island in Thailand but fairly sparsely populated, meaning those looking for peace and quiet will find some of the less developed beaches positively serene. Apart from on the island’s west coast, tourism development that has taken place elsewhere is relatively modest and the beaches remain the main attraction. Even bars and restaurants are far less conspicuous in some parts of the island, with a few delicious spots serving up local specialities such as fresh seafood. However, the more developed areas such as Chaweng, Lamai and Bophut are still very appealing and home to some fantastic shopping and international dining options.
Koh Samui’s status as a major tourist destination is well-deserved, thanks not only to its natural beauty but also to its incredible properties. Renting a Samui private villa gives one a hotel cannot match. It is therefore one of the best ways to enjoy the island's diverse appeal to the full.
