Ko Samui Gay Guide

A guide to help you find the best hotels & places in Ko Samui for Gay travellers


Gay Koh Samui 2019: Chaweng Beach & other popular Gay Hotspots on the island

Exotic, lavish & gay-friendly: Koh Samui is everything that a gay man would hoped for. It is one of the most distinguished gay destinations in Thailand, particularly popular for its laid-out character and friendly locals. Koh Samui is not about partying or crazy dancing nights, Koh Samui is more about lying on a beach with your favorite cocktail on-hand, watching over the turquoise-water coasts.

We recommend Koh Samui for both romantic and fun trips. Its exotic character makes it an on-earth paradise for the ones searching for an alternative and more “down to earth” holiday experience. While its peacefulness and privacy make it one of the best islands in the world to spend your romantic holidays or gay honeymoon.  The best time to visit Koh Samui is from Late December to April, when the weather is great, the rain is limited and there is lots of sun. The best time for outdoor activities like snorkeling and scuba diving is from March to May. The low season of the island is from April to June!

Koh Samui features a compact but vibrant gay scene with all kinds of gay venues including gay bars, gay dance clubs, gay massage spots, and gay beaches. The majority of the gay bars of Koh Samui are located in Chaweng Beach area, near the Boxing Stadium. The most popular gay bars around the island are the Poolside Bar of ALPHA Gay Resort, Pride Bar SamuiSamui Mojito LabK-Club BarBar SoloARK Bar and The Road Less Travelled.

The gay cruising scene of Koh Samui is based on the gay saunas and some outdoor gay cruising hotspots, which we do not recommend. The most popular gay saunas in Koh Samui are Samui Men's SpaEmerald Green Mens Club, and Prince Samui Men's Club. A satisfying experience in Ko Samui can only be achieved by exploring all the amazing places the destination offers.

Do not forget to visit the gay-friendly Chaweng Beach as it is a sight to remember. A long shore covered with white sand  and packed with beachfront bars and restaurants for the travellers to savour. If Koh Samui is your dream destination then you should check out our amazing Hotel Collections and choose the hotel that will make this unique experience even more worth-like. 

Gay Accommodation Koh Samui: The Best Hotels to Stay!

Alpha Gay Resort is the largest gay resort in Thailand and the first and only exclusively gay hotel in Koh Samui. In addition to the common hotel facilities, Alpa gives to its guests the opportunity to socialize on its sunbaking terraces surrounding the pool. It is less than 10 minutes' drive from the airport and less than 1km from Chaweng Beach.

Apart from Alpha Gay Resort, there are not any other gay-only hotels or guesthouses on the island. On the other hand, there are plenty of gay-friendly hotel and resorts, which are distinguished by their friendly and cozy attitude. 

We have made a collection of gay-friendly hotels and resorts around the island, which are known for their luxurious facilities and gay-friendliness. Furthermore, we have included some gay-popular places around them in order to make your gay trip planning even easier!

Gay Tips

Gay couples & singles usually spend most of their time with activities such as diving, trekking, riding elephants, playing golf, and of course swimming in the idyllic white-sand beaches!

Gay Cruising in Koh Samui can be found in one place; the Khanom Ferry Terminal area, where several gay men are searching for fun, and the number of young guys is surprising!

There aren't any exclusively gay beaches in Koh Samui but the majority of gay travelers prefer the Central Chaweng beach, around the end of Soi Lamd in Pattaya, for unwinding and sun bathing.

The Gay scene of Koh Samui is centred in Chaweng, and has a mild character, especially compared to the vibrant gay scenes of Phuket, Bangkok and Pattaya.
