Enjoy a beautiful holiday at Mae Nam Beach.

Located on the island of Koh Samui, Mae Nam Beach is a beautiful place to spend a Thai holiday. Though Koh Samui has several popular beaches, Mae Nam Beach is quieter and less crowded than the others, making it an ideal location for families who desire a tranquil break. Swimming is excellent, and when the wind picks up, Mae Nam Beach is also a great place for wind surfing.

Mae Nam Beach was long a favourite destination for backpackers, but over the years this idyllic beach has transformed into a destination with a greater variety of accommodation options. HomeAway offers several villas at Mae Nam Beach, ranging from holiday villas that accommodate 20+ to smaller houses and bungalows. Many of the apartments at Mae Nam Beach even have private pools.

HomeAway also offers holiday homes in other locations on Koh Samui such as Lamai Beach and Bang Po Beach, while those wishing to explore multiple islands can also find holiday homes on Phuket.

Things to do

Angthong Marine Park:

This national park consists of three islands where travellers can enjoy beaches, spectacular views and kayaking. Those who seek a unique experience can indulge in a spot of elephant trekking; the price to get to the park includes entry to a fish spa. The trip to the national park takes about one hour by speedboat.

Walking Street Market:

Every Thursday evening there is a market near the Chinese temple that attracts a mixture of locals and tourists. Visitors can sample local cuisine such as fried crickets while listening to local bands or sipping on an inexpensive cocktail. Those looking for fresh fish should head to Fisherman’s Village, which is only five minutes from the market.

Santiburi Golf Course and Country Club:

This championship golf course is located on the mountainous side of Koh Samui and is a must for those who crave a round of 18 holes. Given the hilly landscape, the course presents a tough challenge – one that also offers picturesque views of the island.

Koh Tan:

Koh Tan is a nearby island replete with many attractions. Tourists can go snorkelling or scuba diving to explore the coral reefs and sea life, while those wishing to see more of the island can take a 30-minute walk to the beautiful Namuang Waterfall, where the pools offer a refreshing way to relax after the trek.

Spas:

Mae Nam Beach is home to several spas that will make a Thai holiday even more relaxing. These range from cheaper spas with decent massages to more luxurious options at upscale resorts, such as Napasai resort, where the immersive experience goes above and beyond that of a standard Thai massage.

Full Moon Parties:

Koh Samui is renowned for its vibrant, pulsating full moon parties. These parties are intense events with blasting music; travellers looking for a wild night out will feel right at home and will relish the chance to party with locals and fellow tourists.

Weather at Mae Nam Beach

The weather on Koh Samui can be broken down into three seasons. The dry season, from December to February, sees little rain and temperatures slightly lower than the typical 28°C. The hot season runs from March to August, when temperatures rise to the 30s. Brief late afternoon thunderstorms are not uncommon. The rainy season runs from September to November, when rain generally comes in short bursts. During this period, beach holidays are still great, but the choppy waters make diving less enjoyable.

Travel to Mae Nam Beach

The easiest way to get to Mae Nam Beach is to fly into Samui Airport (USM) and rent a car. From the airport, drive along the Ring Road to Mae Nam Beach, which is about 18 miles from the airport. Those coming from Phuket can either take a one-hour flight or a six-hour ferry from Phuket to Koh Samui.

Paradise

Right from arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome, the villa was spotless the fridge was prepared with all the necessities i.e. Bread butter, orange and apple juice tea coffee ect. Mrs Nickie looked after our every request ( taxies , scooter rentals, advice on market day ) the beach is second to none very quiet away from the main busy resort . All the staff were so polite and respectful. The ladies on cleaning duties were sweet and impeccable about there work . I loved every thing about coconut Laguna and would have no hesitation in recommending these beautiful properties to everyone.

Fantastic villa with excellent host

5 of 5
My wife and I have just returned from a 2 week stay at Villazendo and thought it was fantastic. The main features for me are the privacy of the villa itself plus the infinity pool of course. Emma too is extremely responsive and very helpful indeed before and during your stay. Our bags were delayed and were delivered when we were out at dinner, so Emma signed for them and ensured they were waiting for us when we returned to the villa. Emma also helped with ensuring that our fridge was stocked with fruit and various items so we didn't need to head out to go food shopping as soon as we arrived. Now that's great service indeed! You do definitely need to hire a car. It's quite an incline to the villa and it's located up the hillside in the jungle, which is excellent but with the humidity, definitely rent a car like we did. It also allows you to explore the island. As I said the pool is the main feature as most of the time is spent outdoors, as it should be. Inside is fairly minimalistic but has everything you need and if it doesn't Emma will arrange for you. The beds are firm, so if you're used to a super soft mattress, it will take a few nights to adjust but we slept soundly every night. The photos tell it all. It's private, tranquil, modern and extremely relaxing. There are plenty of fabulous restaurants by the beach 5 minutes from the villa which are excellent. Also Fishermans Village, which is a 30minute drive, also has great choice. All are good quality food and very well priced. Emma's recommendations are spot on! Everything is very close by and there are fantastic beaches 5 minutes away or all around the island, One top tip when driving there first time is have a look on google maps to make sure you don't miss the turnings to the villa. 4G doesn't really exist, so be sure to download the route or print off directions before you set off. We have already recommended to friends and colleagues to go and will be recommending more. We'll definitely be returning.
