Koh Samui takes everything from the quintessential Thailand experience and packs it into a single island. From five-star resorts to Thailand overwater bungalows, Koh Samui combines idyllic beaches, beautiful waterfalls, and majestic Buddhist temples with the luxury and comfort of thoroughly modern amenities. As Thailand's second-largest island, Koh Samui is a destination of promised serenity.
One of the best accommodations throughout the island is the KC Resort & Over Water Villas. Located along the hills of the island's eastern coast, this luxury resort overlooks the tropical waters of the Gulf of Thailand. Situated away from the island's primary commerce centers, KC Resorts & Over Water Villas offers quiet vibes while remaining only a short distance from the island's top tourist attractions.
Best Time to Book
Koh Samui's primary tourist season is during the region's dry months, from December to February. During this time, the area sees its optimal weather conditions, with warm temperatures and little rainfall throughout the month. As a result, the island experiences a steep increase in the number of tourists during this time. In response to this influx of tourists, many resorts and Thailand overwater bungalows will receive inflation in their nightly rates to compensate for the increased demand.
Conversely, visitors booking their stay at KC Resort & Over Water Villas can plan their trip during the region's monsoon season. Most travelers to Koh Samui avoid visiting in October and November to stay away from the region's wet months. However, this is arguably one of the best times to visit the island. Not only do visitors receive a reduction in their nightly rates, but they still receive plenty of sunshine and warm weather for enjoying the beach.
Another option visitors booking their Thailand overwater bungalow at KC Resort & Over Water Villas have is planning their stay during the region's shoulder months, particularly in April and May. While nightly rates are not as low as during the region's wet season, the reduced tourism still sees slightly reduced costs than during peak times. However, visitors during this time should be aware that April and May are some of the hottest months the island experiences, with very high humidity levels. Still, what better way to combat the heat than staying directly on the water at KC Resort & Over Water Villas.
Rooms & Services Available
As a luxury accommodation, the KC Resort & Over Water Villas provide all the comfort and full-service amenities you would expect and includes 24/7 concierge service, cabanas, a mini bar, and room service. However, as a luxury resort, the hotel also offers lavish amenities that go above and beyond the necessities. The following are some of the most significant features of this luxury resort.
- Infinity Pool: As the resort's highlight, the hotel's infinity pool offers stunning views of the gulf and surrounding area. Guests can swim up to the edge or relax on one of the deck's many lounge chairs.
- Panorama Bar: Situated alongside the infinity pool, the Panorama Bar offers delicious cocktails and snacks to enjoy by the water.
- The View Restaurant & Wine Lounge: Continuing the hotel's theme of breathtaking views, the View Restaurant & Wine Lounge is the resort's fine dining experience.
- Sari Wellness & Spa: Who doesn't want a little pampering on their tropical vacation? The Sari Wellness & Spa offers massages and facials. Its featured service is a WATSU massage in a floating saltwater pool.
Those visiting KC Resort & Over Water Villas typically arrive on the island through the Samui Airport. Only a five-minute drive from the resort, the airport offers plenty of taxis and buses for incoming tourists. Alternatively, the KC Resort & Over Water Villas' personalized and 24/7 concierge service would be more than happy to arrange shuttles for their guests.
