Updated: May 30

As we gear up to welcome the auspicious Year of the Dragon, what better way to embrace the spirit of renewal and celebration than by booking a getaway to picture-perfect Koh Samui? Blending age-old traditions with laid-back charm, the Island is a captivating place to celebrate and immerse yourself in the vibrant spirit of the Chinese New Year. Here’s why.

A Beautiful Time of Year

Cool sea breezes, the end of monsoon season, low humidity, and warm evenings, Koh Samui is ‘the’ place for those in search for some winter sun. As the island enters dry season, which typically runs from December to April, you can expect clear skies and plenty of sunshine – ideal conditions for hitting the beach and trying your hand at a water sport (or two).

Epic CNY Celebrations in Koh Samui

While Chinese New Year isn’t a national holiday in Thailand, Koh Samui still pushes the boat out when it comes to celebrating. Home to the Mae Nam Chinese Temple, the northern coastal town of Mae Nam stands out as the most popular area for celebrations. Here, you can expect dazzling dragon and lion dances, bustling street markets, musical performances, and family-friendly beach parties. For those seeking a more tranquil atmosphere, the nearby Nathon town provides a laidback setting for quieter celebrations, hosting an array of traditional events. Whether you choose to partake in vibrant street parades or witness authentic temple festivities, the island promises an electrifying and unforgettable atmosphere for visitors looking to embrace the holiday spirit.

Multi-Generational Festive Fun

Chinese New Year is all about spending time with family, and with the estate’s expansive design and secluded location, Lime Samui makes the perfect choice for larger groups looking to celebrate. Comprising three stylish 5-bedroom villas, which can sleep up to 44 people, you’ll find room for everyone - with a safe environment for children to play and extra privacy for grandparents or teenagers.


A real home away from home, you can unwind with your nearest and dearest, making a splash in the impressive infinity pool, relaxing in the luxe cinema room, or even challenging the family to a game of pool. Enjoy the added luxury of a dedicated private chef preparing unforgettable feasts every day and a full staff on hand 24/7 to take care of your every need throughout your stay.
