To maximize your time on Thailand's boutique island you should identify accommodation offering as many extras and conveniences as possible without breaking the bank. Koh Samui hotels with pool access rooms will do just that. At these you won't be surrounded by strangers when you go for a swim, but can kick back on your own private terrace with direct access to the water reserved only for a limited number of guests.
There are for example resorts with a meandering pool surrounded by as few as 4 to 7 other villas, and that's to say the other rooms are in fact occupied, or at least that their occupants are in the water at the same time as you. Suites from which you can take a splash right outside your door will also allow you to experience a much different atmosphere than in a traditional hotel. It creates more space, it is more romantic and allows the freedom to use these facilities whenever you want and without leaving the comfort and privacy of your own personal space.
Another advantage of choosing Koh Samui as the location to book accommodation with direct pool access is that most of these hotels are located right against the beach. In many other locations you might not not necessarily have this added advantage. Something important to take notice of is that this room type is extremely popular and our advice is not to wait too long before securing your space.
