Koh Samui Homes

Many people from all over the world have chosen to make Koh Samui their home in recent years, and the island now boast a fairly cosmopolitan scene with ex-pats from all over the globe bringing various skills and experience to the island. Alongside this, there are a growing number of professional, urban Thais spending extended periods on the island either for work or as a lifestyle choice.   

This shift toward longer staying ‘visitors’ has been facilitated by the ever-improving standard of living attainable on the island. There are now four international schools, mainly following the British Curriculum, while at the same time offering culturally relevant additions. All of these schools are well attended and provide social networks for new families also. There are three international hospitals, equipped to deal with most eventuality and direct links to Bangkok for those rare occasions when a case is too complex for the local team. The ease of travel between Samui and Bangkok is another major plus factor in many people's choice to settle, on Samui and the one airline operating the route offers hourly flights throughout the day, every day.

Because of the increasing popularity of Koh Samui as a ‘lifestyle choice’ or ‘downsizing’destination, there are a great number of properties available for sale or lease, with an incredible variety of style and budget, ready to become home to the islands new additions. There are also plenty of homes already occupied and a secondary sales market is developing as people look to see a return on investments made in previous years.
