Koh Samui

Hotels in Koh Samui

Finding good hotels in Koh Samui is hardly difficult: this Thai island has attracted a number of five-star resorts and luxurious hotels with its natural beauty and exotic appeal. Inspired by the native splendor, Koh Samui hotels are equally attractive.

Consider, for example, the Hansar Samui Resort and Spa, a beachfront hotel located near a low-key fisherman's village. Known for its contemporary design and easy elegance, this hotel offers guests a private balcony with a wide ocean view. Who wouldn’t want to book another stay?

For a quiet and peaceful hotel in one of the most famous destinations in Thailand, retreat to Sala Samui Resort and Spa. Here, guests have exclusive access to a luxury villa with open-air balconies and private swimming pools.

The X2 Samui, located on the south side of the island, is another example of the top-tier hotels in Koh Samui vying for supremacy. The rooms are contemporary and refined, providing both unparalleled views of the surrounding Gulf, as well as modern amenities (indoor rain showers; LCD TVs).

The Banyan Tree Samui is hailed as one of the best hotels in Koh Samui. Its 88 villas are scattered along terraced hills, and each is appointed a private infinity pool and a personal butler. Don’t miss the spa, where you’ll sip lemongrass tea and enjoy a traditional Thai massage.

The 81-suite and villa Outrigger Resort and Spa is located on the Koh Samui island’s Bophut Bay, a laid-back stretch of sand 20 minutes from the island’s major city, Chaweng, and 10 minutes from Koh Samui International Airport.

Bringing a long-lacking dose of mod design and youthful exuberance to this ever-popular Thai resort island, W Hotels’ first “Retreat” property in Southeast Asia hews to the brand’s urbane aesthetic.

Samui's top wellness retreat sits on nine gorgeously lush acres on the tranquil southern coast.

106-room waterfront property with lots of activities (including sailing on Bophut Bay and Thai language lessons), on Phuket’s longest beach.

Room to Book: Deluxe rooms are on the second or third floor feature terrazzo tubs for two.

Doubles from $310.

Aimed at travelers who prefer Wi-Fi with their R&R, the 77-room Langham Place Samui promises you can stay plugged-in even from your villa’s rustic-chic canopy bed or on the sugar-sand beach. But that’s not to say this sleek newcomer doesn’t inspire relaxation.
