Koh Samui – Our paradise

Koh Samui, occasionally also referred as Ko Samui or just Samui, is one of Thailand’s favorite island getaways and the third largest island in Thailand. It is located in the Gulf of Thailand bordering the South China Sea in the Pacific Ocean, and measures only 21 km at its widest point and 25 km at its longest and is therefore very easy to get around.

Koh Samui was voted one of the world’s best island holiday destinations 2013 by Travel + Leisure’s readers and it is no wonder. Easy to reach from Bangkok, Phuket or overseas, Koh Samui with its swaying coconut trees and crystal clear water, is a popular place for holidaymakers.

Apart from the main activities; sunbathing, swimming and relaxing, there are many attractions to explore and experience. Elephant riding, golf, sailing, island hopping, snorkeling and diving, local markets and attractions, glittering temples, forest pools and cascading waterfalls, exotic shows and entertainments, all these things plus much, much more await on this amazing island of tropical dreams.

Koh Samui Hotelier Games 2013

Last week during 10-14 September, Sareeraya Villas & Suites took part in the annual Koh Samui Hotelier Games 2013 held at Chaweng Lakeview. This is the biggest annual sports event each year for local hoteliers, organized by the HR Samui Club. This year the sports event included futsal, volleyball and sepak takraw, a kick volleyball native to Southeast Asia.

Sareeraya Villas & Suites was well represented in the sports event. The ladies team took home the 2nd place silver medal in Volleyball, which was an amazing achievement. The men’s team took part in futsal, an indoor soccer game. Although they did not make it to the finals, they did a great effort and got many good compliments from the crowd.

Congratulations on a fantastic achievement to all players and special thanks to the coaches.
