Growth in Koh Samui commercial property

Last year saw substantial growth in the commercial property sector, with a number of new shopping centers set to open, improving retail services and facilities around the island considerably.

Many local market commentators still cite the arrival of the Tesco Lotus superstore three years ago as a major contributing factor in the success of Samui’s property market.

With several new commercial developments well on the way to completion, particularly along the main island ring road from Chaweng to Mae Nam, the availability of global goods and services will attract even more potential home buyers. This will also mean the arrival of retail chains and brand names that will compliment those already established on the island including:

  • Le Meridian Resort & Spa
  • Amari Hotel & Resort
  • Central Hotel & Resort Group
  • Imperial Hotel Group
  • Nautica
  • Adidas
  • Nike
  • Lacoste
  • Warner Brothers
  • Boots

(Sheraton, Marriott and the Four Season’s hotel and resort chains are reputedly building new resorts)
