Tub Tim Koh Samet | Relaxed Gay Paradise
While Silver Sands is best for nighttime, Tub Tim Beach is perfect for a relaxed daytime. The restaurant has a huge menu of amazing food including Thai and European food. The resort and bar are famous for its relaxed attitude to bring your own alcohol onto their tables. Don’t worry, if your own supply of alcohol dries up the bar's prices are reasonable.
The resort’s huts (bungalows) are very popular too. Incredibly with 100 huts on-site the resort is still booked up months early for most weekends. Book early if you can because, like the restaurant, the huts are some of the cheapest on Koh Samet. The huts come in different classes ranging from just fan rooms to more luxurious beachfront cabins locations with A/C and hot showers.
Tub Tim’s is on the gayest beach on Koh Samet and becomes the gathering place every weekend. There are tables of gay guys at the resort all day but the beach begins to get really busy around 4 pm and peaks just before the sun goes down around 7 pm. At its peak, there could be up to 100 – 200 buff gay men on the beach. This scale of gather only happens on Saturdays, especially on Thai holiday weekends.Music: The resort plays no music however on the weekends some of the tables may bring their own speakers and play their own music.
Crowd: A total mix of European tourists, long-term ex-pat residences, and gay weekenders Bangkokers.
Tub Tim Resort is the most chilled resort and restaurant on Koh Samet and is located at Ao Tub Tim on the east coast of the island.
