WHITE SANDS, BLUE SEAS, AUTHENTIC TRADITIONAL SETTING

Our secluded white-sand bay in Laem Sor is a gem. There are outstanding sea views across to Koh Matsum and Koh Tan while at low tide meandering sand bars head out into the shallows- you’ll believe that people can walk on water! Shallow waters, a white sand beach fringed with palm trees only steps from the villa makes this the ideal location for young and old. As the bay is quiet and not lined with hotels, you’ll be forgiven for thinking it’s your own private beach!

Local Area

Laem Sor is well known for being traditionally Thai and as it’s not over run with tourists, it retains a sense of a time past, mirroring the early days of Koh Samui. Away from busy roads and tourist enclaves of Samui’s other coastlines, here coconut plantations line quiet roads, Thai villagers smile as you pass by, Thai teak houses are dotted around the village, and isolated beaches beckon.

While loving the remoteness, with Lamai beach 15 minutes’ drive away and Chaweng beach 25 minutes, it is easy to access vibrant nightlife and upmarket shopping attractions. It is 20 minutes to the island’s capital town, Nathon, and a 40 minute trip to Koh Samui International airport.

Koh Samui

Kids on Koh Samui

Koh Samui is an ideal destination for children and there is plenty to occupy the little minds while the adults clock-up some hours of vital relaxation time.

Thai people love children and will fawn dotingly on babies – so expect a shower of cooing attention, smiling tickles and your kids never wanting to leave. Unsurprisingly, the major attraction for children are the sandy beaches and the shallow waters.

The kids will enjoy a visit to the elephant sanctuary, or speed across the jungle at a Canopy adventure. Older kids might enjoy Go-Karting, football golf or the 360 sports park opening in late 2023!

Activities around Laem Sor

Within a few kilometres of Villa Kalyana you can find some great activities. Try your hand at horse riding on the beach, some action packed ATV riding into the jungle or a visit to the local Pagoda and newly completed temple (2023) just a short walk away from the property.

Keen Fishermen can visit nearby Top Cats to fish for a big catch at their lake designed and manicured to sit majestically within the spectacular natural environment. Those who love to try local produced items can visit the local rum distillery, maybe take a taxi for that excursion! 

Plenty of water sports are easily arranged from long tail or speed boat or even larger vessels for group excursions for snorkelling trips and or a further afield trip to Ang Thong marine park.

Hin Lad and Na Mueang waterfalls are great for a dip in cool crystal waters.

Chaweng

Shopping

Chaweng is an amazing shopping wonderland and the sellers happily haggle and banter with you as browse for anything from sunglasses and bags to copy watches and high end brands. Remember, don’t pay the original asking price; you’re expected to bargain and never forget to smile during interactions too!

Many villages on Samui have an evening of stalls selling arts and crafts, cocktails and street food and these markets are called ‘Walking Street’. The nearest on to the villa is Lamai and it happens of various nights of the week. Fishermans Village ‘walking street’ is the most popular market, which offers a more varied option of wares just a stones throw from many bars and restaurants for those who prefer to watch some live music or catch a glimpse fire show on the beach. 

For a more formal style of shopping, Chaweng’s Central Festival Samui is an open air shopping centre with over 80 shops. The shopping mall is situated close to Chaweng Beach road, which is also popular to browse many outlets for clothing, souvenirs and trinkets to take home.

Nightlife

Villa Kalyana is within easy reach of Lamai beach (20 mins) and Chaweng beach (40 mins) – the central hubs of nightlife. You’ll find great live music bars as well as beach bars and chic cocktail lounges.

Thai boxing events make for an exciting cultural experience and check to see if your visit coincides with one of the many music festivals that grace the island. Chaweng’s draws the biggest crowds for the island’s best club scene. The thumping epicentre is Chaweng’s Green Mango, which has the most popular clubs and bars.

Lamai is more relaxed and you’ll still find old style bars nestled into the rocks and along the beach.
