Known for its serene atmosphere and vibrant nightlife, Koh Samui with its surrounding islands promises a really romantic and exciting time for newlyweds. From serene beaches and wellness retreats, to luxury hotels and spas, this tropical island in the Gulf of Thailand has all you need to make your first days as a couple memorable.

Tourists like to visit Samui during the dry season (December to August) when they can enjoy all of its attractions without worrying about rain.

For the ultimate in luxury, we recommend the Four Seasons Resort, or the Six Senses Samui. The Buri Rasa Village, or the Kala Samui, will work just fine if you’re on a lower budget.
