KARIBU (which means “Welcome” in Swahili) is a newly renovated house right on the soft white sands of beautiful Bang Por beach in Northwest Samui. After an extensive renovation, the two storey house has a shaded terrace overlooking the sea, an en-suite bedroom downstairs and two light and airy bedrooms upstairs. Many of the items in the house were sourced in Bali, with the colours being predominantly turquoise, white and light grey.
Sam-kah is a new boutique property management company that puts our guests first in everything we do. Our small but growing team is always available to assist our guests; we strive for perfection and believe in doing things the right way, right away! We know this island very well and are always available to our guests to answer questions about things to do and see, how to save money when bargaining with retailers and which restaurants and shopping venues are the best (and which should be avoided).
Bang Por Beach is one of Samui’s hidden treasures. Situated on the glorious north west corner of Samui, it is relatively undeveloped and has excellent sand quality. Swimming is possible year round and it is very safe (no unexpected deep ledges or drop offs!)
Fishermen bring in their catch right onto the beach and often you can see them wading out into waist high waters as they fish.
Karibu Beach House sits at the western end of the beach, close to an excellent beachside tapas bar (La Playa) and also a great beach club with a beachside infinity pool, Music Beach. There are several great seafood restaurants within 200 metres of the house. Across the road are several authentic small Thai restaurants that serve great food for take away or eat in. There is also an Italian restaurant just down the road called Celli’s.
The drive from the airport takes around 30 minutes, and on the way you will pass through the small coastal town of Maenam.
We’d like to advise you that Karibu is located on the island’s ring road. As such, it can sometimes be busy during the day. To minimise any noise, we have taken several steps, building walls and installing plant pots and bamboo. There is a gate to the house main area making it a completely safe compound for families..
