Koh Samui is getting in on the Northern glamping trend.
Situated on Maenam Beach on the island’s north coast, the boutique pool villas of Khwan Beach Resort will welcome a new collection of luxury tents in mid-Jan at the special opening rate of $279 (from Jan 23), nearly half the full rate of $519.
The tents have mod-cons like air-con despite their 19th-century expedition vibe—think four-poster king beds, oil lamps, vintage wooden chairs, leather trunks and daybeds. The location is close to the weekly walking street on Maenam Road and famous island food staples like Ko Seng, Kanomjeen Pa Maitree and even the posh Woo Bar at the east-end of the beach. Here’s what you can expect at the resort:
Koh Samui is just less than two hours away from Singapore. Both Bangkok Airways and Silk Air have two flights that fly directly to Koh Samui, with return tickets starting from $425 and $522 respectively. Alternatively, you can also fly Thai Airways ($781) if you’re looking for a more luxurious trip.
