Samui's glorious 'Golden Triangle' encompassing 'Big Buddha' and neighbouring Bang Rak Bay is a vibrant and exciting part of the island on the north-east coast, close to the main tourist areas of Chaweng and Bophut; and just minutes from the picturesque international airport.
This ferry-pier district bustles with chic beachfront restaurants and bars, cool designer resorts and beach clubs, colourful shops and an eclectic range of spas.
Just beyond, Bang Rak is one of the island's most charming beaches – a crescent-shaped bay of fine white sand, clear blue water and pleasure boats bobbing at anchor just offshore.
In the distance, the legendary 'Full Moon Party Island' of Koh Phangan looms invitingly, luring a monthly retinue of party-goers to its famous beach party.
Sitting quietly and serenely amid all this excitement and activity, a world away from this district's frenetic pace of life, are Elite Haven's manicured, beachfront estates.
