Sandwiched between Chaweng and Mae Nam, Choeng Mon is made up of a series of white sand bays. It’s one of the quieter areas on the island, with a family-friendly vibe ideal for vacationers with young children.
Your Choeng Mon villa enjoys a tranquil ambience, picturesque views and a spacious outdoor compound complete with private pool. You’ll find vacation rentals across a variety of styles - from modern homes kitted out in contemporary furnishings, to ultra-chic abodes with an all-white interior and glass walls to minimalist villas decked out in neutral hues. Impeccable housekeeping service and the staff’s warm hospitality lend a homely, welcoming vibe to each villa.
Choeng Mon Beach is ideal for villa travellers seeking to avoid the hustle and bustle of other beaches. With its quiet shores and shallow, child-friendly waters, the beach is a popular hangout among expat families. There’s plenty else to do apart from swimming and sunbathing - go snorkelling or scuba diving, rent a banana boat or hire a jetski to cruise across the turquoise waters. When you’re away from Choeng Mon’s idyllic coasts, stretch it out in a yoga class at The Yogarden Samui, learn how to cook Thai dishes at Island Organics, try snookah diving with operators like Samui Snookah Dive or unwind with a spa at Six Senses Samui.
Choose from an array of high-end and casual, fuss-free restaurants depending on your mood. SALA Samui Restaurant offers a great ambience, as does Pangaea, which boasts cosy wood-clad interiors. The Orchard Restaurant and Bar and Garland Samui are great options for a relaxed night, when your only focus is to dig into an array of tasty Thai dishes. The best way to soak up the town’s relaxed nightlife scene is enjoying drinks at a beachfront restaurant. For a livelier atmosphere complete with late-night parties, hop into a car for a 13-minute ride to Chaweng Beach.
With your villa manager’s ready assistance, planning for daytrips is a breeze. An 11-minute ride will take you to the iconic Big Buddha, while the colourful Wat Na Phra Lan is a 34-minute drive away. The charming Fisherman’s Village, with its myriad shopping and dining venues, is 18 minutes away. Or cruise around the island on two wheels to take in its Instagram-worthy landscape; operators like Samui Bicycle tours run half-day and full-day tours.
Got more time on your hands? Venture offshore to picture-perfect Ko Tao, an island known for exceptional freediving and scuba diving. Ferry boats depart from Mae Nam Pier (30 minutes’ drive from your villa), and the journey to Ko Tao lasts about an hour and 45 minutes.
