Thanks to its popularity amongst traveling online workers, there are lots of amazing coworking spaces in Koh Samui; it’s one of the most popular islands to visit in Thailand.
Thousands of digital nomads flock to Thailand each year – and for good reason. The country is undeniably gorgeous, the people are known to be some of the friendliest in the world, the food is incredible, and the cost of living is absurdly affordable.
Koh Samui is a small island off the eastern coast of Thailand in the Gulf of Thailand. It’s known for its pristine, postcard-worthy beaches, stunning waterfalls, and vibrant nightlife. It has a popular backpack culture and has attracted digital nomads since the internet began.
Best Coworking Spaces in Koh Samui
I decided to call Koh Samui home for almost two and a half years, and it was one of the best chapters of my life. As a digital nomad, working online was always easy and convenient on the island; made possible by the many modern coworking spaces and cafes. These are my favorite, most reliable spots.

Located in the northern part of the island, Mantra Resort offers a coworking space called the Mantra Work Lounge. Tucked off the main ring road, this coworking space in Koh Samui is arguably one of the most popular.

Depending on what type of pass you purchase, you can even obtain access to the pool and gym, and receive a credit to the on-site restaurant.
