Directly at the arrival terminal wait many taxis for the newcomers. The prices are around 500 (+ -200) Baht. A Taxi for 500 Baht can be taken without hesitation. Cheaper it is nowhere. Somehow I had all the time anyway on Koh Samui the feeling that somehow every ride, no matter how long or where going to cost about 500 baht! Also toughest negotiations were usually not successful!
Nevertheless: The taxi is comfortable, fast, and you do not have to wait for more passengers. It is therefore suitable as a good option for the airport transfer ono Koh Samui. If you get together even more travelers who want the same destination, then the taxi is worth even more.

Update 22/09/14: Meanwhile, supposed to have been introduced on Koh Samui the taxi meter. The taxis are therefore supposed to Bangkok prices. Only a island surcharge of 50 baht per person will be due. I myself could not not test it, but I will report as soon as I saw it with my own eyes.
The classic minibus waits until enough passengers have come together for the tour to the respective destination. This can lead to short waiting time. But if you drive to the big places like Lamai, Chaweng or Bophut, you will probably have no problems to find enough passenger. The prices are a lot cheaper then Taxi and start at 100 baht per person. Best option for backpackers and budget travelers. The mini buses are also to be found at the arrival terminal and tickets can be purchased at counter in the lobby.

Many hotels offer a partly free or cheap pick-up service at the Koh Samui airport. This can be booked on request at the hotel. Prices vary here. But should be in the range of a taxi ride. The advantage is very clear that you don’t have to worry about anything and a friendly driver is waiting with a name tag on the baggage claim for you.

The car rental can be booked on Koh Samui International Airport in the arrivals terminal.
