The kitchen is self contained with all the appliances you may require, including a large fridge, gas hob, microwave, toaster, kettle and all cutlery, crockery & glassware.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Moonrakers were recently built and the views from each room are incredible. The view from the living room is especially nice. Having the living area between the two bedrooms allowed privacy for each family. All the beds were very, very comfortable. (The twin beds were seamlessly joined together for us, making a large bed.) Both bedrooms have plenty of storage and all the rooms are attractively decorated. The kitchen is equipped for four people, however, there is no need for a lot of cooking since there are three very reasonably priced good restaurants within a short walk along the beach. We loved walking barefoot down the beach to one of the three open-air restaurants for lunch and dinner. Two of the restaurants offer dining directly on the sand. The Moonraker owner was extremely helpful and we saw him most every day since he lives nearby. He quickly responded to all our emails from beginning to end and made certain we arrived from the airport without a problem even though our flight was delayed. I suggest you let him line up transportation from the airport for you. The price was very reasonable. The owner will be happy to answer any questions you have, make suggestions, arrange transportation, etc. for you. (The business owners all know each other and seem to work together to make the visitors' stay a good one.) If you plan to do any snorkeling/diving, the dive shops all seem to know where the Moonhut is and will pick you up from there. Massages are a must in Thailand and two massage areas are just steps from the Moonraker. Our favorite massage place was at the Moonhut up under the palm trees, but the massages next to the Nature Bar were good as well. Mini-markets, a fruit stand, Angela’s for breakfast/lunch and laundry businesses are a short 10-15 minute walk away and can be reached via two paths. The path behind Moonhut is more scenic and along that path was where we had our laundry done. Early mornings were great for walking along the beach and watching the locals fish. Maenam Beach is a good swimming beach and doesn’t have the rocks that can be found on other beaches on the island. The beach is sloped but walk-able and some people used it for their morning jogs despite the slope. The beach at Moonraker isn’t noisy or highly populated, which suited us well. There were enough friendly visitors to converse with, but not so many that you had to share your beach time with them. It was a perfect two weeks. Thank you, Alastair!

Wonderful time in a wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Alistair for a very warm welcome. Great accommodation - well equipped for a family of four, with all the basic essentials covered and with very good cleaning/maid service every few days. We spent 6 nights in Moonrakers and had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. The beach was not busy at all and the property has great views across the entire bay and we found that once we arrived we really didn't need to move or do much at all! So if it's relaxation and a complete unwind that you want - this is a great choice. There is plenty of shade available on the terrace and under the parasols throughout the day, which was very welcome. There are several great restaurants along the beach - our favourite was Nature Bar, but all were very friendly and welcoming with a decent standard of food and willing to adjust to taste. You can walk to the nearest 7-11 to top up on basics and so it really isn't necessary to have transport. Alistair is available if you need and he very kindly offered to arrange transport to and from the airport at the going rate which is also great to take the pressure off. Thank you again Alistair from Deb and Jonny

Moderner Bungalow direkt am Strand

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist sehr modern und komfortabel ausgestattet. Die Lage direkt am Strand ist nicht zu übertreffen und "direkt" ist auch keineswegs übertrieben: Die Terasse geht direkt über in den Sandstrand, an dem für die Mieter vier Sonnenliegen bereitgestellt sind. Man hat somit zum Haus einen eigenen idyllischen "Privatstrand". Der Strand ist alles andere als übrlaufen und trotzdem gibt es, ebenfalls direkt am Strand gelegen, verschiedene Restaurants, die auch ein Frühstück anbieten. Die Restaurants sind vom Haus aus zu Fuß über den Strand zu erreichen. Auch Supermärkte gibt es in der Nähe. Wir empfehlen trotzdem einen Roller auszuleihen.

Der Hausverwalter reagierte prompt auf Fragen und es blieben keine Wünsche offen.

Der einzige Wehrmutstropfen: Wir waren nach unsererer Rundreise durch Thailand von Ko Samui nicht wirklich begeistert. Aber wer ein paar Tage am Strand entspannen möchte, für den ist diese Unterkunft perfekt!

There are many attractions very close to the Moonrakers. First of all as we are located right on the beach, there are many watersports available all within a few hundred metres. You can choose from Hobie cat sailing, wakeboarding, waterskiing, kayaking, wind surfing and stand up paddleboarding, There is also a kite boarding school right next door and private boat charter for snorkeling & sightseeing trips around Koh Samui and the surrounding islands. The nearest dive shop is in the town just about 10 minutes walk away. There is also a daily ferry service to Koh Phangnan just 15 minutes walk away along the beach.

For land based activities, Samui Quads is just a short drive away. They offer guided quad bike tours, taking you off the beaten track up into the hills behind Maenam where you can enjoy amazing views and even a swim at a waterfall. There is also a zip lining company in the same area if you are looking for an adrenalin rush.

Mountain biking is very popular around the Maenam hills & bicycles can be rented locally.

There are a huge range of restaurants and bars to choose from in Maenam, including many which located right on the beach and only a short walk away from your front door. Of course most serve Thai & seafood, but there are also several Italian, Japaneese, Indian , French & also Turkish. For shopping, Maenam has nearly all you could want for day to day supplies, the fresh market is well worth a visit but it does start very early in the morning and is normally finished by 11.00am.

Nightlife is limited in Maenam as it is a quiet area and is still mainly inhabited by Thai families, however there are a few bars that stay open later if you fancy a night cap.

Just 10 minutes drive away is Fisherman's village, which also has a wide & varied range of restaurants & shopping and also it's famous walking street, held every Friday night.

Chaweng is a 15 minute drive away and has almost every possible type of bar & restaurant you can think of, it is also the main nightlife area with bars & clubs staying open until the early hours of the morning. There is also the Central Festival shopping Mall, which has a full range of shops selling clothes, electrical goods & souvenirs from top brands.
