Location

Fishermen from the Malay Peninsula and Southern China began settling on the island around 15 centuries ago, yet Samui did not appear on maps until the 17th century. The origin of the name "Samui" remain mysterious, and is thought to be an adaption of the Chinese word for "safe haven". While the island's first visitors arrived by coconut boat, now Koh Samui is just a short flight away. Famed for its pristine sandy beaches, clear blue waters and lush jungle interior which now draw visitors from all over the world, Anantara Bophut reminisces the island's essence of privacy and tropical seclusion. Koh Samui is Thailand's third largest island and situated on the northern coast, Anantara Bophut is both conveniently located – only a ten minutes from the airport – and an escape from the bustling nightlife of nearby Chaweng.
