Where can I stay with my kids in Koh Samui

Have you ever head of Koh Samui? This island, known as simply Samui by the locals, is utterly stunning with a strong fishing culture, thriving coconut plantations and is a popular destination for people from all over the world.

The island has many family friendly resorts that provide the perfect base for the rest of your travels.

Dara Samui Resort

This boutique style resort can be found right on Chaweng, which is the main beach of the island. The rooms have been decorated with the Lanna Kingdom period in mind, and are utterly sophisticated, easy and breezy.

You'll be immersed in a distinctive Thai ambiance and have access to a range of top class facilities, such as two lovely eateries, the Dara Phirom Spa and the pool bar, where you can relax on a chaise lounge with views of the sea.

Melati Beach Resort and Spa

Another completely chic, luxurious and comfortable resort, this is a perfect place to stay with your family. At the end of your day adventuring, check out the Pha Ngan restaurant, where you can enjoy al fresco dining right on the beach, with a meal of freshly caught local seafood.

When you're having a more relaxed day, book yourself in for a treatment and massage at the Melati Spa. In the middle of the tropical gardens, you'll be treated to herbal steam treatments, body scrubs and facials.

Chaweng Regent Beach Resort

For something more intimate and modern, check out this resort. The buildings and cottages are all utterly Thai, and are a wonderful way to experience this culture. Right on the beach, you'll be in an ideal location to enjoy the ocean, and with one of the best restaurants in the area - the Red Snapper Bar and Grill - you'll ease into the evening in style.

It's also very close to Chaweng, so you can wander through the streets of this exciting area.
