An important ethos of the owners of TEMBO is ‘giving back’. They are committed to adopting best practices for the environment and the community wherever possible.

Koh Samui, Thailand - TEMBO Beach Club & Resort, perched on the soft white sands of Koh Samui's renowned Bangrak Beach on the island's buzzing north coast, has quickly gained a reputation for offering fine food, amazing service, charming accommodation, and a deliciously playful experience for those who appreciate the good things in life.

The ‘plantation-style’ resort, which has dazzling views across azure seas to neighbouring Koh Phangan, is the perfect destination for travellers looking to enjoy a glamorous adventure on *one of the world’s most beautiful paradise islands. (*as voted by Travel+Leisure readers)

Life at TEMBO (which means ‘elephant’ in Swahili) revolves around the spacious pool area, where guests can relax on a single- or double-day bed, enjoy the beach, sip a refreshing drink, dine al fresco at the all-day restaurant, or simply enjoy the views from the welcome shade of the bar under softly whirring ceiling fans.

Tembo cares
