The Calvie is centrally located in Chaweng Noi. This area has been referred to as the “Beverly Hills” of Koh Samui. The area has only recently been developed, with the development retaining the area’s integrity with its huge palm trees, natural boulders and sweeping views of the Gulf of Thailand. Chaweng Noi beach (only 5 minutes down the hill from The Calvie) is one of the best on the island and is lined with a range of high end hotels.
10-15 minutes north on the main ring road that takes you around the island is Chaweng, the main town in Koh Samui. This is the place to go for a lively beach, lots of shopping, markets and a huge array of restaurants.
10 minutes south is Lamai, also another busy town on Koh Samui with a similar lively atmosphere.
20 minutes directly across the island north takes you to Fisherman’s Village, a fantastic area of hole in the wall restaurants and bars, overlooking Koh Panang.
