If you’re dreaming of a tropical paradise, chances are you’ll find it on Thailand’s Koh Samui island. Pristine white sand beaches, turquoise waters, palm trees and glowing sunsets, plus world-class cuisine and luxurious accommodation – are we on track? You’re probably thinking this getaway doesn’t come cheap. Luckily, we’ve found just the bargain for you.
As the very first luxury resort to open on Koh Samui, the island hotspot, InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort, on Taling Ngam Beach ticks all these boxes and way more, making it the place to relax and recharge à deux or with the family in tow. And the New York Times bestseller 1,000 Places to See Before You Die agrees! Discover what this popular resort (voted Asia’s leading Beach Resort in 2015 by the World Travel Awards) offers as well as details of the Stay and Dine package that will have you packing your resortwear immediately.
The 79 Thai-inspired guest rooms, suites and villas in this exclusive enclave each feature a private balcony with spectacular sunset views over the Gulf of Thailand, the nearby Five Islands and Ang Thong National Marine Park. Bliss out in a Resort Classic Ocean View Room or one of the brand-new Family Rooms with a king-size bed and bunk bed that we’re totally loving. Upgrade your stay by nabbing a Beachfront Pool Villa with a private swimming pool, wine bar and sundeck or the spacious Two-Bedroom Ocean View Residence.
The resort’s restaurants get the thumbs up from foodies, too. Guests can choose from Amber restaurant for contemporary Thai, Asian and international fine dining, Fireside for pre- or post-dinner drinks, Serene for light bites, Flames for casual beachside grills, and Air Bar for creative cocktails and some of the best sunsets on the island.
When the spa calls, treat your body and soul at the award-winning Baan Thai Spa by Harnn. Perched 120 metres above the sea at the very highest point of the resort, the holistic retreat blends Thai therapies with Western practices and Ayurvedic medicine. Check in for soothing treatments and therapies, ranging from a full-day of pampering to a soothing tea ritual and head-to-toe massage.
Though you may find it hard to imagine that you’ll ever be able to move from the daybed on your balcony, you won’t want to miss all that the resort has to offer. While away your days on the private beach, hop between one of seven stunning swimming pools or learn the art of Thai cuisine with a cooking class led by Master Chef Tao in the signature open kitchen of Amber restaurant. Get your blood pumping with a gym workout, yoga session or Muay Thai lesson, take to the sea on a kayak or explore the underwater world with a snorkeling or scuba trip to spectacular coral reefs.
Children in your party? Young guests between the ages of 4-12 will love the Planet Trekkers Kids Club where trained staff will keep them busy with a range of activities throughout the day. Think beach soccer, tennis camp, hair braiding, nail painting and much more.
While we wouldn’t blame you if you chose to never leave the resort, Koh Samui and the surrounding islands await. Hit up the Concierge Team and head out to explore the buzzing nightlife and charming fishing villages of Koh Samui, or go island-hopping for snorkeling, diving or dolphin-watching.
