The tranquility of Maenam still continues to draw those in search of peace and quiet, retaining its old Samui character. Maenam is home to both backpackers and well heeled guests. Some of Samui’ most expensive new deluxe resorts can be found here… Lots of excellent local restaurants plus new age spa centres for those in need of new age stress relief. A good place to stay if your priority is not necessarily a hectic party nightlife.
Perhaps it’s the excellent views of Koh Phan Ngan that have kept Maenam as Samui’s last predominantly backpacker beach. Or maybe it’s the fact that many of its Hotels & Resorts are located at the end of long rambling pathways, affording a degree of privacy unavailable elsewhere. Either way, Maenam is still the place to be while away for a few weeks on a low budget, staying in one of the many cheap fan bungalow operations that are dotted along the beach.
Maenam beach is one of Samui’s prettiest and quietest beaches where a quiet evening with your loved one is bound to be more than sipping cocktails with your partner as the sun sets. Despite what many will tell you, this quaint coastal village has far more on offer, nightlife wise, than meets the eye.
