The Club Koh Samui Group broke ground on the first phases of Club Koh Samui, Thailand’s first sports-and-leisure destination resort. To develop Koh Samui as an international destination for people who enjoy sports and an active lifestyle, the Club Koh Samui Group is investing USD 400 million (THB 12 billion) into the island to develop the largest resort project ever built in Thailand. Club Koh Samui will be an integrated destination resort that revolves around an extensive sports & leisure complex in the mountains above Chaweng Beach.

"Club Koh Samui  will change the face of Koh Samui tourism and enable the island to reach its full potential,” said Finn Hyttel, Club Koh Samui’s Group Managing Director. “Koh Samui desperately needs a landmark tourist attraction, and Club Koh Samui will satisfy this need and be a signature amenity and demand generator for the entire island.

While Thailand and Koh Samui are successful destinations in their own right, Club Koh Samui will have the needed range of tourism drivers and attractions to become a global tourist destination all on its own.  As Samui’s signature tourist attraction and only destination resort, Club Koh Samui will be both a sound investment vehicle and an exciting lifestyle holiday choice. The overall concept combines fantasy, luxury, and numerous entertainment possibilities and has already proven to be hugely successful in other venues around the world like Club La Santa on Lanzarote in the Canary Islands. As a destination resort, it will generate significant economic benefits for Koh Samui and Thailand and create substantial jobs and economic spin-offs, attract more regional and international visitors, increase tourism receipts and boost the country’s tourism industry as a whole.

Green Paradise Island
Samui needs to become sustainable and truly be a “green” paradise island, and the Club Koh Samui Group will work to protect the island and its inhabitants from overdevelopment, create sustainable projects and jobs, and redevelop the island’s faltering agricultural base. Its sustainable development plans include a massive solar power project, a unique waste management project that turns garbage into needed topsoil, an effective wind-generated electricity system, multiple water management programs, and diverse platforms to revive the island’s farms and agriculture. All this will make Samui healthy, self-reliant and economically sound, and the world will then see an island that is really doing it, not just talking about it.
