Hotels in Phang-Nga
This is the Asian seaside escape at its best: all the beauty of a remote destination without the hassle of being entirely off the grid. On the isle of Yao Noi, 45 minutes by boat from Phuket, guests are surrounded by lush jungle, tiny fishing villages, and untouched beaches.
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.
In-the-know locals travel 130 miles south of Bangkok's steamy bustle to this secluded locale, which commands a three-mile stretch of white sand near Hua Hin.
Formerly Pansea Napasai Samui
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.
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.
