The 10 best beach resorts in Big Buddha are situated close to perhaps one of the island’s most popular attractions. The namesake of the beach itself, the imposing Big Buddha statue smiles across Koh Samui from its position on a small islet just off the north coast, connected to the mainland by a small land bridge. The area around it is littered with local restaurants and is also the home of the main tourist ferry terminal, with boats sailing for nearby Koh Phangan and Koh Tao.
The most popular Big Buddha beachfront resorts are found right by the side of the long, peaceful seafront, enjoying soft sands mere steps away from their other fantastic facilities. Many of the places listed below boast great swimming pools, spacious rooms, fine dining restaurants, exemplary service and a relaxing atmosphere while still being conveniently located to give you direct access to the best bits of Koh Samui.
