Koh Samui Has More True Beachfront Hotel


Recommended Posts

New website shows beachfront hotels that really are on the beach

Is that hotel really on the beach? According to John Everingham, you're more likely to find a true beachfront hotel on Koh Samui than anywhere else in the world

'Among the sandy statistics, Thailand shines, but Australia slumps.

"Koh Samui has over 230 qualified hotels, making it the single 'biggest' true beachfront destination in the world," Everingham says.

"Australia, which has vast coastlines, fares very poorly in the 'true beachfront' stakes, because roads were built right along most of its famous beaches long ago."

Direct access points to any of the main beaches on Samui are rare, so I guess the numbers don't suprise me.

I have perfected that arrogant 'I am a paying guest here' look as I saunter through a hotel to get to the sea!!:lol:

The absolute majority of guests stay in resorts directly on a beach and therefore don't walk through a another hotel to get to the beach.

Secondly, working in the business since over 2 decades I have not heard of one tourist saying that.

and thirdly, why care? maybe a future customer? or not?

It is the famous "Dunns River Falls" in the background, a popular tourist destination in Jamaica.

Never been stopped, just wave at the entrance guards and take a golf cart at the lobby down to the beach, swimming pool, restaurant area.

Was thinking much the same. Visited the place a few times and clambered on the rocks on the beach.

you can have as many beach front hotels as you like but surley you need a decent beach and water to be in front of them which samui is lacking big time.

What a <deleted> clueless comment.
