The 5 Best Kid-Friendly Hotels in Koh Samui
Four Seasons Koh Samui – luxury
The nicest resort on the island with an amazing swimming pool and private beach. The kids club is great and has lots of fun and adventurous activities. One, two, three, and four bedroom villas are available. Privacy, seclusion, and luxury are the themes here but the hotel retains a very family-friendly feel. Phone: +66 (77) 243-000
Banyan Tree Samui – luxury
The Family Ocean Pool Villa is as stunning as it sounds and has 2 twin, 1 sofa bed, and 1 queen bed. Set on a hill a buggy helps guests get around the property. The kids’ club and spa are among the best on the island. If you’re looking for a luxurious vacation this is the place to find it. Located about halfway between Lamai and Chaweng beaches. Phone: +66 77 915 333
Imperial Boat House Beach Resort – moderate
A super kid-friendly resort on one of Samui’s most kid-friendly beaches (Choeng Mon). Free kayaks, snorkels, and flippers available for guests. A fun play area for kids and a great swimming pool. Rooms are large or stay at one of the converted teak rice barges. (The boats sit in the garden not the sea.) The breakfast buffet is very good. Phone: +66 (77) 425-041
Centara Grand Beach Resort Samui – moderate
The best family resort on lively Chaweng Beach. A great kids’club and fantastic swimming pool. The beach here is on Chaweng’s nicest stretch of sand. Lots to do through the day and fun day trips are easy to arrange from Chaweng. If you want a wide range of places to eat then Chaweng is where you want to be and the Centara is close to many restaurants. The spa is top-notch. Phone: +66 (77) 230-500
World Resort Bungalows – budget
Large triples and interconnecting rooms are great for families. Nice pool, free wi-fi, tasty breakfast. The beach is great (though it does get narrow during high tide) and the water is calm, shallow, and perfect for kids. Located in Bophut so the very fun Fisherman’s Village is nearby. Phone: +66 (77) 42-5355-6
