“Built on a former coconut plantation, Ritz-Carlton Koh Samui sits on 58 acres of land overlooking the Gulf of Thailand. Our favourite rooms here are the standalone villas, the largest of which spans over two floors and has three bedrooms, perfect for groups and families. There are also on-site tennis courts, yoga classes, a fitness centre, and kickboxing ring for Muay Thai lessons.”
Nestled on the northeast tip of Koh Samui, the Ritz-Carlton occupies a former coconut plantation which descends to a semi-circular sweep of sand and azure waters. A 15-minute drive from Samui International Airport, it offers dining options, an exquisite spa and endless sea views.
Its 175 luxurious suites echo local architecture with villas elevated on stilts to accommodate sun-drenched plunge pools. Contemporary interiors are sumptuously furnished with oversized windows complementing panoramic views.
Savour fresh Thai fare at Sea Salt, indulge in street food favourites at market-style Baan Talat, opt for southern Thai cuisine at Pak Thai with views of an artificial reef, or try Tides Bar and cevicheria. Ease into One Rai’s intimate atmosphere, sundowner in hand.
The resort is ideally located to explore the island’s beaches, jungles and famous attractions, including Big Buddha Temple, Fisherman’s Village and Chawaeng Beach. Relax at the Spa ‘Village’ complete with lap pool, health bar and massage pavilions.
