Location, location, location! Koh Samui or Coconut Island, as affectionately called by the natives, is Thailand’s third-largest island, and fast becoming a favorite destination of world travelers. Le Méridien Hotel group targeted this enchanting spot on the Gulf of Thailand, bordering the South China Sea, for its newest luxury retreat, the Koh Samui Resort and Spa.
Featuring 77 stylish suites and villas arranged in the manner of a traditional Asian seaside village, the resort was constructed in accordance with Feng Shui principles. This is Le Meridian’s 99th property in the world, and the number 9 is considered to be lucky in most Asian countries, especially in Thailand. “…Le Méridien Koh Samui brings inspiration to our guests and the local community alike, truly elevating a sense of place for Koh Samui and bringing a new perspective to the island,” said Tina Liu, General Manager.
Although equipped with all the modern amenities, this lush refuge demands a no work and all play attitude. Enjoy water sports and horseback riding on Lamai beach, drive all terrain vehicles through the forests, or play golf at the Santiburi Samui Country Club, one of the most breathtakingly beautiful and challenging courses in Asia. If on the other hand you prefer total rest, relaxation and rejuvenation, we enthusiastically suggest the resort’s world-class spa. Offering a holistic mix of ancient and modern treatments, it’s a must-visit for discerning spa lovers. ■
