There’s a few local businesses in Samui that we’d like to give a shout out to… and can recommend them if you’re on holiday or living here.
Health & Wellness
Samui Home Clinic – Our local GP is the best! A great little clinic run by a professional, English speaking GP. Located in Bangrak, next to the Samui Pier Resort.
Home Interiors & Fashion
Ms Carino – contemporary resortwear meets bohemian Bali inspired fashion. You’ll find a great range of dresses, skirts, tops, pants, jumpsuits, jewellery and handmade products in the Ms Carino shops in Bophut. Plus clothing for kids too! There’s one shop in The Wharf, and one shop in Fisherman’s Village.
Taiwaree Summer Lifestyle – a boutique online linen fashion brand with a range of linen clothing ideal for tropical island life. Taiwaree designs her own linen clothes and sells them online at https://taiwaree.com/
Food & Drinks
Bangrak Minimart – better than any corner store, they have a wide range of food, drinks and snacks. Also fresh bread and a great range of wine, beer and spirits (best price on Samui, perhaps?). Located on the Bangrak beach road, opposite Petcherat Marina. And they offer free delivery if you are in Bangrak & Plai Laem areas.
The Lucky Cow – homemade greek yoghurt, feta cheese, hummus, tahini and pita bread. Yum! Next door to Makro in Chaweng. You can also find Lucky Cow products in Bangrak Minimart.
ID Scooter & Car Rental – they are based in Bangrak, and will bring the bikes/cars up to your villa if you’re staying in the north-east. You don’t need to leave your passport with them which is good – but you will need to show your car/bike licence. Call Ian on 081 081 0340.
Ecopest Samui – professional, pet-friendly pest control, to get rid of the bugs and insects!
