Design + Sustainability
Surrounded by sand and sea this perfectly situated luxury beach resort and spa is one of the sparkling jewels of the island of Koh Samui. It’s been thoughtfully designed to embrace nature, nourish the soul and inspire you with stunning ocean views at every glance. Modern architecture combines with contemporary white interiors in the accommodation, creating an atmosphere of calm and purity, which is a brilliant contrast with the vibrant red beach cabanas nestled amongst the palm trees around the resort pool.
Stepping in to our superior suite, the first thing I notice is the crisp white and oatmeal coloured palette, the modern furniture with a splash of red soft furnishings, and Asian inspired art - a timeless style statement. Designed to offer complete comfort, my suite had a separate bedroom with luxurious bedding, a bathroom with a jacuzzi bath tub and separate rain shower, and a living space with fully equipped kitchen. All this was complimented by an over sized balcony. The suite provided ample space to relax and relish in some quiet time, and after a few hours spent in the beautiful spa, participating in a yoga class, or rejuvenating in the herbal steam, room there’s nothing better than a good night’s sleep. All rooms come equipped with luxurious beds and a thoughtfully created pillow menu.
Why go: With luxury accommodation and great facilities, this stunning beachside resort will do more than satisfy your senses. It’s a body and soul reboot, as well as the perfect place to treat yourself to a luxury couples romantic getaway or a wellness retreat.
