Guesthouses, hotels and resorts
Lined with attractive wooden shopfronts, Bophut's Fisherman's Village has a bit of an old-world charm to it that you'll find nowhere else on Ko Samui. The guesthouses and hotels in the village are mostly boutique-style affairs, and there's some excellent options to choose from. The only downside is it is a bit of a walk to the better part of the beach, but that doesn't seem to bother anyone who stays here.
