Where to stay in Ko Samet

Ko Samet offers a huge selection of accommodations, from budget to upscale. The island's proximity to Bangkok means the busy season lasts all year long, so book as early as you can to avoid disappointment once you arrive. As tourism increases on Ko Samet, room prices continue to rise, and lodgings friendly to backpackers are rapidly disappearing. Most decent rooms remain clustered on the east coast, but if you prefer a quieter Ko Samet vacation, head west instead.
