There are some very huge supermarkets on Koh Samui: Tesco Lotus, Big C, Makro. They offer you all you need. It's an experience to visit these large supermarkets and to see their amazing range of products. The Tops Market at Central Festival offers more international and western products, but is also a litte bit more expensive.
There are a lot of pharmacies and they offer a huge range of all needed products. They also speak Englisch so it's no problem to explain your symptoms and get something for it. They offer good medicine against mosquito bites and sunburned skin. A well-known and good pharmacy is Morya with many branches on Koh Samui.
You can find petrol for your car at large gas stations or in small bottles at every street. We always prefer to fill up at large official gas stations. The nearest gas station to the villa is in Choeng Mon.
