Dear Ashish K Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, it is safe to travel to Koh Samui in January - from Christmas to end of March is our High Season in Koh Samui. Generally, it is safe to travel to Koh Samui all year round. I do believe your main concern is the weather. This is a global issue which affects almost every destination in the world which is unpredictable. Best regards. Mark Suppiah General Manager

"The lower the room number the closer it is to the beach."
"Rooms with sea view are quiet and comfortable"
"We had a spacious, well air conditioned suite, 2 large beds, lounge dining and swimming pool sized bath. With balcony. Great room."
"Lots of stairs. If you aren't agile/fit, definitely ask for bottom floor."
"Ask for a room nearer the rear of the property/ beach"
