Arrive in Koh Samui with ease. There are more than 50 daily flights on three airlines from Bangkok, Phuket, Chiang Mai, Singapore, Hong Kong and a host of other regional and international locations. Also, ferries frequently go back and forth between the island’s Na Thon Pier and Surat Thani on the mainland.

From Koh Samui International Airport (USM)—a complex of open-air pavilions with thatched roofs surrounded by lush gardens and shaded by swaying palm trees—our Welcome Ambassadors will whisk you to W Koh Samui in signature WHEELS(SM) in just 15 minutes. Hired local transportation is also a safe and efficient way to get to the resort.

Once on the island, rental cars are an easy way to get around. But there are also plenty of taxis and songthaews—mini-buses converted from a truck—traveling between popular destinations. Just be sure to bargain for a good fare, which will be significantly higher after dark or between remote spots.

If you are traveling by car, please see driving directions, from the airport or any other location.
