Superpro Samui seems to be the “go to” gym for the big name K1 fighters out of Holland. The owner is European and there’s trainers (Charoon for example) that frequently travel there to train fighters. The facility itself is quite developed as it is and it’s currently undergoing another expansion which will add more training space and additional rooms.
As the name indicates, “Superpro Samui” is located on the popular island of Koh Samui. The gym is on a residential street around Chaweng beach. Here is a map you can use to find it. To get to the main nightlife area, it’ll take you about 5-10 minutes on a motorbike (200 baht via a taxi) so it’s not too far at all.
They have plenty of on-site accommodation available at Superpro (and they’re in the process of building more). Guests who stay on site pay an all-inclusive rate for the room and training. The rooms can be pricy for long term stays but if money isn’t much of an issue, the rooms are of high quality and I’m sure you’ll appreciate staying right at the gym. They also have a fan room available for 10,000 baht per month and that rate includes training.
Alternatively, you can look around for an apartment nearby and when staying outside the gym, you will just have to pay 7500 baht per month for the training – which is a pretty reasonable rate.
