Maenam Beach, Mae Nam

4.2
Laid-back and private, Maenam Beach mainly draws a backpacker crowd. The beach offers excellent views of the island of Koh Pha Ngan, and its resorts are set much farther away than at other beaches, allowing for a quieter atmosphere. Stretch out on the soft golden sand, in the sun or under the canopy of palm trees, and then cool off in the calm sea. Amenities include many restaurant options along the beach, as well as massage kiosks offering Thai massages. If you fall in love with the spot, consider staying in one of the affordable bungalows dotting the shoreline.

  • Clean resort, away from the hustle and bustle. Wonderful to read. Was a dream vacation. For dinner, it goes to the Philip in the free travel Samui. There's delicious Tai food

Where to stay in Mae Nam

The quiet, laid-back nature of Mae Nam often attracts couples and families, leaving fewer budget-friendly options catering to backpackers. The town center still manages to retain a liveliness despite the relaxed atmosphere and offers a modest selection of self-contained bungalows. However, the main concentration of accommodations here lie (unsurprisingly) along the water. Beachside hotels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses offer understated luxury and clean rooms close to amenities such as restaurants. Don't fret too much if air-conditioning is not offered, as the gentle sea breeze usually precludes the need for AC.
