Each Ritz-Carlton throughout the world offers its guests the finest in luxury, and the beautiful, new hotel in Thailand’s tranquil and lush Koh Samui will have you booking a trip to Thailand as soon as possible. Located within a private, secluded bay that overlooks the Gulf of Thailand, the Ritz-Carlton Koh Samui’s 58 acres feature gorgeous gardens, 175 suites and villas and a 40,000 square-foot spa.
Situated on the site of a former coconut plantation, the new hotel meshes traditional Thai architecture with modern luxury. Native ceramics to the area and coconut have been added to wood-paneled walls, and minimalist furnishings provide the ambiance with a truly immersive and experiential vibe. And make no mistake: the modern and traditional come together for an experience like no other at the property’s Spa Village. The Songkran Shower, for one, is a service inspired by Thailand’s annual Songkran Festival that takes place in serene treatment salas overlooking a meditative pond.
In addition to the relaxing and natural spa treatments, the resort also features an amazing Muay Thai gym. Equipped with an indoor kickboxing ring, guests can learn from on-site instructors and experts. The gym even comes with a temperate swim reef that’s home to more than 50 species of fish, so you can relax after an intense workout. And let’s not forget about dining: the hotel features seven food options, all serving up local food and drinks. Two beautiful white-sand beaches, a pool and two tennis courts round out the stunning property, ensuring for a stay like no other.
