From the parking lot, you’ll need to walk some 90 meters to reach the wat, as well as a short uphill hike. The temple grounds are serene and tranquil, perfect for meditation and contemplation. There are adequate seating areas for visitors, so it’s a wonderful place to come and get in touch with your spiritual side.

What makes this temple unique is that it’s not as touristy as the other wats on the island, which is ideal for visitors who want to see unique attractions without having to deal with hoards of other travellers. Here, you’re guaranteed solace, peace, and quiet as you explore the temple and its surrounding areas, and even take some photographs.

Near the temple are some breathtaking viewpoints from where you can take in views of Chaweng Beach. Better yet, after your visit, why not head down to the beach for a change of pace. After all, Chaweng is one of the most popular beaches in Koh Samui, known for a terrific selection of restaurants and vibrant beach life.

To make the most out of your day, it’s recommended to visit the temple in the morning, followed by a full day of activity or relaxation at the beautiful white sand beach of Chaweng.

Wat Sawang Arom also functions as a monastery and residence for Buddhist monks, so you may come across some of them during your visit.

The temple is open every day during daylight hours, and admission is free. It’s located near the Chaweng School, south of Tesco Lotus.
