Koh Samui Beach
Choosing a holiday destination and
a hotel Koh samui beach is one of
the biggest decisions most people
make each year. Please find below
a few pieces of information that may
answer a few questions and lead you
to propose The Tongsai Bay Koh Samui

traffic or noisy neighbours hotel
Koh Samui beach at Tongsai Bay.
in 1987, The Tongsai Bay has established
itself as the leading family owned
hotel on the beautiful island of hotel
Koh Samui Beach, Thailand. Hidden
amongst 25 acres of breathtaking natural
beauty and overlooking a sandy bay,
the hotel is renowned for its privacy
and tranquility, its passionate love
for the environment and last but not
least, the friendliness and professionalism
of its staff. This gives rise to our
proud boast that the Tongsai Bay is
“Koh Samui’s most romantic hotel Koh
It all began in 1985 when the late
Akorn Hoontrakul, then chairman of
Koh Samui beach, saw Tongsai Bay from
the sea and declared that it was love
at first sight. Seven days later Akorn
purchased the land. For three months
he slept on the beach, dreaming of
his ideal resort, and started to plan
the layout and location of the rooms.
A key challenge was to do it without
cutting down a single tree or cause
damage to the beautiful natural surroundings.
The Tongsai Bay Koh Samui beach opened
its doors in July 1987 and became
the first five-star luxury hotel on
Koh Samui beach, under the umbrella
of The Imperial hotel Koh Samui beach.
Following a period of illness in 1993,
Akorn sold the Imperial Hotel Group
whilst retaining The Tongsai Bay Koh
Samui beach, because he wanted to
live out the rest of his life there
with his beloved wife Chompunute.
In 2000 Akorn passed away and management
of The Tongsai Bay Koh Samui beach
moved to the capable hands of his
son, Thanakorn and his daughter in-law,
Saisiri who both share Akorn’s passion
for the environment and for providing
the highest standards of hospitality
and service. Under his watchful eye,
The Tongsai Bay Koh Samui beach continued
to grow from strength to strength
and developed its own ‘Green Project’.
This is now the model for many new
hotels at bophut who also desire to
preserve the island’s natural environment
for future generations. In 2009 Michael
Holehouse, a seasoned British born
hotelier with 14 years experience
of working in Thailand was appointed
He reports directly to the family
who now reside in Bangkok. Michael
is equally committed to taking The
Tongsai Bay Koh Samui beach to even
higher levels of service whilst maintaining
the green policies already in place.
