Airport to Conrad resort

Hi.

We are arriving in the evening into Ko Samui airport (~9+pm).

What is the best way and reasonably priced way to get from the airport to the Conrad hotel, which is located at the south western tip of the island ?

Would be Ok to simply hail a taxi down at the airport easily ?

Presumably we have to haggle for the price, if so what is the reasonable rate ?

Also, what is the best way to get back to the airport ?

(around noon on a Sunday)

I am trying to avoid having to book a taxi via the hotel as I would most certainly be charged a fortune for that.

Thank.s

At Samui airport you have to use their transport service. Taxis are not allowed to pick up inside.

The prices are here https:/…

You can take a private car or a shared minivan.

The prices are set.

Pre book a driver, usually cheaper than getting a transfer at the airport and they’ll be waiting for you when you arrive.

When you get to Samui, in the atrirum where there are hotels etc with booths there is a limo service. it is reasonably priced. If you follow the signs to the meeting place then there are 'taxis' there and prices are similar. There are no authorised taxis on the airport site other than the Limo service.

Samui island Explorer may be doing transfers again, so why not google them to ask!

Got it, thanks all.

I got a quote for THB2k net for a private 2 way transfer between Samui airport and the hotel.

Sounds reasonable ?

Thanks usmcare.

Do I need to input my credit card details when registering for an account ?

Not sure how safe my card details will be.

Also, would you know how much a normal taxi may cost between :

- Conrad hotel and Nathon

- Conrad hotel and Lamai/Chaweng ?

Thanks.

Just bear in mind with Navigo there aren’t a huge amount of drivers available so there may not be a driver nearby when you land meaning you’ll potentially have to wait around or worst case end up getting an airport transfer. Much better for arrival especially later at night to have it pre booked.

You’ll also struggle with NaviGo from Conrad in my experience unless you’re prepared to wait a long time for pick up. I often stay down that end of the island and have never been able to get a NaviGo down there. Much better chances if in the busier areas of the island.
