The main Koh Samui ring road runs through the centre of Maenam which is an established genuine ‘working’ village with traditional lifestyles and has the usual amenities of banks, pharmacies, convenient stores and various commercial establishments used by residents.
The beach is almost 5km long and is quite stunning with white sands, an all year round swimming beach and has an amazing backdrop of the island of Koh Phangan. The beach is not a commercial beach with almost no vendors but is popular for watersports having a cooling breeze at certain times of the year.
Visitors will find some nice relaxed atmospheric restaurants and cafes down in the centre of the village where two side streets heading down to the waters edge form a U shape. There are very few tourist shops here however you will find a shopper’s paradise less than 10 minutes drive away at the Fisherman’s Village in Bophut.
In general with a combination of relative peace and quiet, an excellent beach and easy access to entertainment, Maenam is a popular choice for a tropical villa holiday with family and friends.
Our villas in Maenam can be found both on the beach within walking distance to the village as well as 1-2km away from the village individually in the hills or part of a secure development and offer a range of rental rate options.
