If you've been to places like Krabi or Phuket, you'd already know how gorgeous the beaches are. Combined with beautiful resorts and delicious food, they're the perfect spots for an island retreat. But beyond these two popular spots, Thailand is filled with numerous islands that are also calling for you to visit, including Koh Samui! This island happens to be Thailand's second-largest and sits within the Gulf of Thailand (vs. Phuket and Krabi, which face the Andaman Sea).

The island attracts plenty of visitors and has a wide range of accommodations and resorts, ranging from luxury villas to budget hostels. We've rounded up 7 affordable accommodations (all less than RM200 per night) for you to check so you can start planning your Koh Samui getaway!

Please note that all prices based on checks as of 26 Jul 2019 - prices may fluctuate based on your period of booking. We've focused mostly on accommodations located near or along Chaweng Beach, one of Koh Samui's most popular beaches, as it also happens to have a good concentration of halal restaurants, so eating out will be a breeze ?
