The problem is that technically the ownership of the house would still be controlled by the Thai company. Thai businesses require a majority ownership of 51%. Sure, you can spend all the money you want to build a nice house, but like you said, you won't own the land. That wouldn't be a problem if you're wealthy enough if you're willing to write it off as a loss.

Default Koh Samui/Thailand Question

Kou Samui Island is a paradise on earth. It is the only place to relax and enjoy that I have ever travelled. Thailand legislature prohibits owning a land in Thailand. However, you can purchase a Koh Samui Property with the help of property companies.
