A Must See
This was the first luxury resort on Koh Samui; one of Thailand’s most idyllic islands. It has changed hands a few times but remains one of the most high-status spots on the island. The design of the hotel is “classic Thai” and makes the most of its unspoiled surroundings. Arrive by speedboat at the private jetty and the first view you’ll see upon arrival is the famous “Five Islands” all yours to explore by boat, snorkel or water-ski. The resort boasts seven swimming pools, two tennis courts and yoga deck with private teachers available. Eat at one of two restaurants or take a private meal on a pier that juts out into the sea. Your room has a private balcony, large bathtub and waterfall shower. The Baan Thai Spa is located on a cliff top with huge views of the jungle and sea below. This unadulterated relaxation hub has a number of treatments that use local plants and herbs to bring healing and well-being.
