The paradise Thai island of Samui that is located in the South China Sea, or the Gulf of Siam as its known locally, is classed by many as one of the most beautiful beach resort islands they have ever stayed at - thanks to the many new 4 and 5 start hotels that can now be found in the various towns scattered around the islands coast.

Chaweng being the busiest town on the island is also home to most of the luxury resort hotels in Koh Samui. Villa Lawana is one of the more recent additions to the island and is a villa resort style hotel. This is the most expensive hotel to stay at in the Chaweng Beach area of Koh Samui with prices starting at 10,000 baht (roughly $300) per night. This is closely followed by The Library Hotel , The Briza Beach Resort & Spa and Muang Samui Spa Resort, which vary in price from around 6000 baht (roughly $170) to 9500 baht ($280).
