Suk Samran (Thai: สุขสำราญ) is a district (Amphoe) of Ranong Province, southern Thailand.


The district was created on April 1, 1992 by splitting of the southern part of Kapoe district.[1]

Following a decision of the Thai government on May 15, 2007, all of the 81 minor districts were to be upgraded to full districts.[2] With the publishing in the Royal Gazette on August 24 the upgrade became official .[3]


Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Kapoe of Ranong Province, Ban Ta Khun of Surat Thani Province, and Khura Buri of Phang Nga Province. To the west is the Andaman Sea.

The eastern half of the district is part of the Khlong Nakha Wildlife Sanctuary.


The district is subdivided into 2 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 13 villages (muban). There are no municipal (thesaban) areas, and further 2 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
