Investing in Koh Samui

Most cost-effectivesea viewaffordableluxuryvillas for sale at Koh Samui

With regards to property investment for buyers with an eye for long-term growth or to generate a rental income, Thailand is a perfect choice, as it has no capital gains tax for private investors and low ongoing taxes. Samui’s burgeoning property market is fast becoming a top commodity for shrewd investors as it makes for a relatively inexpensive choice when compared to real estate in neighboring countries and other parts of the world. Koh Samui offers year-round rental opportunities, since the island only has a short rainy season. Further enhancing its investment appeal is Samui's central accessibility, with direct international flights from Kuala Lumpur and the financial powerhouses of Hong Kong and Singapore, with mainland China, Dubai and others soon to follow.

What to expect

Investors can expect a significant rental income, with the holiday rental market showing consistent year-on-year growth. We calculate that an actively managed property can produce annual returns of 7-12% net of management fees. Capital appreciation of properties in Koh Samui varied from 15-20% annually, with off plan properties appreciating by as much as 50% between the launch of the project and its completion. The Global Property Guide says yields have notably risen at the luxury end of the market, with the price index for a detached house increasing by 14.9% since 2014.

Tourist Seasons in Koh Samui

The Peak season in Koh Samui starts from late December to mid February, when there’s plenty of sun with a 30°C climate and moderate winds. The Christmas holidays are the highest, reaching above 90% occupancy.

The high season goes mainly from July to August, where the sun shines the brightest with great beach weather - sunny and warm but not blazingly hot like April and May.

Low season begins in October - where it starts out hot and sunny and gently approaches the rainy season. Dark clouds begin to make an appearance from mid-October, but the island tends to save its wettest and windiest conditions for November, going into December.

Although October falls into the Low Season category, the island enjoys a relatively good occupancy rate owing to the Chinese Golden Week - a national holiday spanning from the 1st of October until the 7th of October.
