Koh Samui is part of Thailand's largest and
most important Southern province, Suratthani. Suratthani literally
means “City of the good people” and is the former seat of the
Sivichaya Empire. Located 785 kilometers from Bangkok, Koh Samui
is one of 18 Amphurs (administrative divisions), and is the
province's major tourist attraction.
Koh Samui is the third largest island in the
Gulf of Siam. It is almost literally an island of coconuts and
forested hills on Chalk Mountains, culminating at 636 meters.
Its beautiful white sand beaches, its crystal clear water, its
jungle, its hills and waterfalls all create a very dynamic tropical
landscape rarely found on other islands.
Koh Samui has now become an internationally
renowned holiday destination and receives more and more tourists
every year, attracted by its perpetual beauty.
Koh Samui is only a 70 minute flight from Bangkok,
and only 30 minutes drive from Samui Airport, Thai Ayodhya Villas
& Spa is the quickest escape to paradise.
