Looking to buy property in Koh Samui? See our pick of the best beaches …
Buying property abroad is a very big step, and there’s a lot to consider. Firstly, you need to think about the type of location, do you go beachside, ocean view, stay near a town or a golf course, and do you want to be quite near the airport? Also, what about the actual location within Koh Samui, do you want to be in the most popular North-East or, for example, the less developed South of the island? Then what about property type, features, swimming pools and number of rooms? You also need to consider things to do, proximity to amenities such as hospitals and, crucially, ensure you fully understand the legal side ... it’s a lot!

Luckily our blog and buyers guide will help you de-riddle those questions and queries, and you’ll soon be in a position to enquire about one of our many properties to buy in Koh Samui.
