The Koh Samui International Airport is the only gateway to connect travellers (from both domestic and international destinations) to the beautiful beaches and resorts in the area. The open-air airport is located only a short drive away from the main city but the airport itself houses only basic facilities and a number of souvenir gift shops. Paid airport lounges are available here but overnight stays at the airport (and the lounges) are not permitted.
Should you require accommodation near to the airport, the Saboey Resort & Villas, as well as the Samui Pier Beach Front Resort, are both located five minutes away from the airport with transfer services available.
