The Navigator


Explore Koh Samui’s Hidden Gems

Apart from being a good resort host that loves to greet all guests on arrival with a wai or even homemade tropical sorbet, Khun Aod is a local resident who spends his free time seeking new places on the island in order to advise travelers. ‘So that they can visit, experience, love the places and finally they do the reviews on social media channels or share to friends and their beloved ones about Koh Samui.’- Khun Watcharaphong ‘Oat’ Rianthong added. Whether it’s the traditional ceremony, history, nature and new emerging places, all is in his spotlight and he can talk with pride as he reveals all as one of the proud locals.

Tips From Our Navigator


Learn New Things
Taking the lead as Navigator and having grown up on Koh Samui, where there are lots of new and emerging things to learn more about each day, Khun Oat added 3 keywords/tips for those who love to discover something new, unique and indigenous about this world.
Sincere, Animated and Lively-Storyteller
This attitude is a great start, as travelers will judge what you suggest based on first looks, what you say and that it is understandable and most of all – Is it worth a try if that trip is their first trip on the island?
Be Open Minded & Helpful 
You respect the guests, do not force and you may talk with them like you’re friends who love to share great things for them to discover. Sometimes, you are a guide, a friend or a photographer for them to bring back great memories.
Think Out of the Box
Guests can be your future friends, also your English teacher or they might have some information that you might not know due to different perspectives, so listen, seek to understand and enjoy your fruitful conversations!
