Central Festival Samui describes itself as 'the most complete and largest lifestyle shopping complex in Samui’. With 3 storeys and around 90,000 square metres of retail space, there couldn't be a better description for this huge shopping and dining mall, which is located between Chaweng's Beach Road and the nearby lake.
Centrally set in the prime east coast resort town of Samui Island, Central Festival Samui completely changed the face of Chaweng when it opened in 2014. The mall has 4 sections – Chaweng Port, Bird Cage, Fisherman Village, and Beach Town Market. This modern and trendy complex boasts some original architectural features with its central open-air atrium and a beautifully landscaped garden area that comes complete with benches, a kid's playground, and countless shops and restaurants.
