Good Karma in Ko Samui

There’s hardly a better place to be stranded than at the loose and lazy Karma Resort on the island of Ko Samui, Thailand. It’s a boutique hotel hosting up to twenty fortunate guests at a secluded locale on Bophut beach, a peaceful enclave situated on the northern coast of the island overlooking the neighboring Ko Phan Ngan and the vast Gulf waters between.

A statue of the Buddha welcomes you to the heart of the resort; a cozy poolside lounge and terrace comprised of tiki awnings and lush tanning beds circumventing a charming azure pool. It leads directly into the white, powdery sands of an intimate shoreline — an idyllic setting that routinely hosts weddings, jazz sessions and Traditional Thai Evenings.

The island’s dense verdure blends into neutral stone structures with wooden frames, rustic saloon doors and grass-hut roofs. Earthly elements and Buddhist themes pervade throughout, grounding guests in a cultural energy and leisure spirit that distinguishes Karma from the mostly contemporary hotels in Ko Samui.


Karma’s twenty tranquil villas are situated along a slender path that snakes between lush vegetation and a winding stream. Each is spacious yet homey, featuring predominantly stone interiors, local charms, an outdoor tropical bathroom and a harmonious aesthetic. The Karma Room Garden offers beauty and privacy with a terrace ingress surrounded by thick, tropical plants, while the Karma Room Pool includes its own private veranda and plunge pool. For something more comprehensive, Karma Room Villa consists of 94 square meters across two floors. The first boasts a private pool and veranda which lead to the bedroom. The second is a thirty square meter terrace showcasing a thatched canopy and gaping ocean vistas.


If nothing else, Karma will put you at peace. In addition to its serene ambiance and chill vibes, guests can choose from a wide selection of massages, facials and hot stone treatments to reenergize and rejuvenate. With a holistic wellness approach and natural ingredients, experienced therapists perform traditional Thai messages and remedies amidst a tropical sanctuary and echoes from the ocean. The resort also provides yoga, Pilates, Muay Thai and private sessions, located on the rooftop terrace observing the sea, from internationally accredited instructors.

Karma Beach Restaurant

You don’t even have to break your gaze from the horizon come breakfast, lunch or dinner, as Karma’s poolside restaurant and bar sits steps away from the lounging area. Beneath a thin, thatched ceiling and a setting sun anything seems fresh, but Karma’s selection of seafood truly is. There top dishes include newly caught fish of that morning, particularly prepared and ornately presented. Breakfast is especially emphasized, comprising six gourmet options that blend traditional Thai, continental European and organic cuisine. As the day rolls on at Karma Beach restaurant, the atmosphere shifts from mellow day eatery to a distinctive wine and dine.

Experience Ko Samui

As homey as the resort feels, it also offers endless opportunities to experience the island’s natural marvels. A cordial concierge is swift and happy to help you discover exclusive areas on one of the most exceptional islands in Asia. By sea, guests can explore uninhabited isles via a chartered sailing boat, visit the coconut trees and remote beaches of Angthong National Marine Park, or scuba dive amidst Thailand’s vibrant sea life. By land, you can embark on island tours to view hidden waterfalls and cultural sanctuaries, drive quad bikes through Ko Samui’s ancient forests, or feed and walk with elephants.
