Koh Samui, Thailand is fast gaining popularity as the preferred tourist destination of international tourists. To meet the demand for accommodation posed by the growing number of tourists to the island, hotels are coming up in a wide range of budget. Koh Samui hotels from 6-star to budget and even those suitable for backpackers is available in plenty all over the island, especially the beach areas.
With so many hotels coming up in such short time, visitors to this beautiful island are the ultimate gainers. The high competition among the hotels has lead to drastic slashing of rates and unbelievable discounts. Here, it is possible to stay in a five-star Samui hotel for the rate of three-star accommodation. But selecting hotels after looking at the rates alone can be disastrous, as the quality may not be good enough.
There are two surefire methods of choosing a good hotel at the lowest tariff possible. The first one is booking rooms through an online agent. And, the second method is to book the hotel directly as a repeat guest. Koh Samui hotels offer huge discounts for repeat guests, if asked for the same. As the second option is available only to those who have visited the island earlier, online booking agents are the best bet for first-time visitors.
There are scores of hotel booking websites with numerous hotels listed in them. These sites also provide detailed information about their tariffs, discounts, images, facilities and even reviews written by past guests. The tariffs offered in these sites are the lowest, as hotels give them huge concessions for the enormous volume of booking they bring in. These rates are not given to even walk-in guests.
Samui hotel booking websites usually offer the lowest rates, if the booking is made sufficiently early. They also provide other services like tour packages and local transportation, which are quite helpful for first-timers to the island. By utilizing all these facilities, it is possible to plan the entire vacation in advance, that too within the allocated budget.
