There are a number of reasons why Koh Samui, in the Gulf of Thailand, attracts millions of visitors each year. A major pull is undoubtedly the glorious beaches where crystal-clear turquoise waters lap against an expanse of sparkling white sands fringed by tropical greenery. Many of Samui’s beachfronts have a castaway, barefoot-in-the-sand ambiance and with so many bays to choose from, it is still possible to find a secluded cove to really get away from it all. Koh Samui beachfront land for sale promises investors a prime opportunity to own some of the most exclusive plots, some of which come with exceptional properties too.
As well as wanting to ensure they have the chanote, or freehold title deeds, investors consider a variety of factors when purchasing land by the sea. Much depends on the purpose of the purchase, whether for a residence or a commercial enterprise from a watersports center to a wellbeing retreat or a hospitality business such as a villa, bungalow complex or boutique resort.
Another factor in choosing the right beachfront land to purchase is the ambiance of the local area and beachfront. Samui is a big island and this equals variety. Chaweng Beach is a tourist hub with an upbeat, young, hedonistic energy, whilst the beaches of Taling Ngam, further down the coast are far more sedate, attracting luxury holidaymakers to stay in high-end accommodation with views of Ang Thong Marine National Park.
Once-upon-a-time, beachfront land was regarded by local landowners as the least valuable, not being fertile enough for crops. Fast-forward to the present day and these pockets of paradise range from rai for sale thisclose to the sand to plots beautifully positioned on a clifftop or elevated on a hill with a rainforest backdrop.
Many tourists value privacy and prefer to stay in exclusive accommodation, including privately owned villas rather than a hotel away from the sea or a cookie-cutter style stay. The result is that the market for developing villa rentals is buoyant. However, for these vacation properties to attract the growing number of luxury vacationers, and the revenues that come with these upscale rentals, they need to be in the best positions, beachfront.
Of course, as well as a viable hospitality business a property developed on beachfront land can also offers families a timeless holiday-home for generations to come at the same time. There is no doubt that this a priceless investment.
