The origin of the name samui is unknown. It may come from the Sanskrit-Tamil word สมวย, meaning ‘sea weather’. Or it may derive from the name of a tree known locally in southern Thailand as ต้นหมุย (full name ต้นสมุย). A third possibility is that it originated from early Hainanese traders to Samui. In Hainanese Chinese, เซ่าบ่วย means ‘first island’, ‘barrier’, or ‘gate’, or literally ‘beautiful beach’. As it was their first port of call in Thailand, it became its name and evolved over time to สมุย. Some people believe that the word “samui” derives from the Malay word saboey, or ‘safe haven’. There is no firm corroboration of any of these theories. Ko is the Thai word for “island”.
