Samui Phangan Magazine August - September 2016

The waves! The sun! The shore! The Sun! That invigorating ocean breeze! The… SUN! What’s not-tolove about a day-at-the-beach if that day on the beach is on Koh Samui.

Samui is an island that for not so many years was just a relaxing coconut plantation with a few intrepid backpackers exploring, now we have an international island that is topping the charts of tropical dream destinations with its own boutique airport and a selection of shopping and real estate that is second to none.

Samui Phangan Real Estate has been part of this transformation practically from the start and our team strives to find articles and information that are not only informative for the general public but also editorials that are positive for Samui’s environment and its infrastructure. We all came here over the years and stayed for one reason, our love for Koh Samui. Ok agreed it’s not just the sun but also a wonderful combination of available facilities, delicious food and delightful amalgamation of people from all over the world. But we all stayed as many have before and many will in the future.

This issue is no different and we take a closer look at Vanaya Luxe Private Villas by Mandalay Samui Developments then a glimpse at the stunning sunset villa on the mountain at Ban Makham named El Cid. Moving into Bangrak we check out what’s going on at Privilege Hotel Ezra Beach Club and with your health in mind we look at environmentally friendly ways to get rid of household pests and this issue starts with Ants, then we have part one of our “Thinking Outside the Box” making a home out of a shipping container. List goes on but I don’t want to spoil it, open, relax, read and enjoy.
