Amid a grove of cashew trees and a wandering herd of water buffalo, Belmond Napasai is one of Koh Samui’s top resorts. This lovely group of contemporary Thai villas dots tropical grounds full of plumeria and coconut trees. With a staff that graciously handles every request, it’s possible to check in here and then completely check out — as you spend days discovering the 24-hour infinity pool (with ocean views), two restaurants (one beachside), the full-service spa and the gorgeous, crystal-clear lagoon.
Bed & Bath
The resort’s 69 villas and suites are spread among lush, tropical gardens. Each villa is lavish, starting at more than 600 square feet, with contemporary Thai architecture throughout. Waterfall baths and outdoor massage rooms keep things relaxed. Some villas have ocean views, including the Seaview Hill Villas, which have a private balcony to enjoy them from. Oceanfront Pool Residences feature a separate bedroom and a private pool.
Right next to the resort’s 24-hour infinity pool is the casual Beach Restaurant, which is open daily and serves a fresh seafood barbecue. The Lai Thai restaurant offers traditional Thai cuisine, and there are two bars for sipping cocktails, open from 9 a.m. onward (it’s okay, you’re on vacation). For active types there’s an indoor gym plus two outdoor tennis courts and a golf course just five minutes away. Be sure to spend some time in the water; Koh Samui’s clear lagoon is ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving. The resort can arrange trips and lessons, but if lounging on a sun bed while someone gets you a tropical drink is all you require, well, this resort has that covered, too.
How to Get There
An absolutely beautiful hotel with it's own private beach and stunning views. The staff were amazing. Attentive without being intrusive and great fun around the pool. At breakfast they would remember how I liked my coffee from the day before. Stunning. Beautiful rooms. Can't recommend this highly enough. Would love to go back.
Great resort along the beach. There were enough activities that you don't have to leave the property if you don't want to. Went during New Year's break and it was a very relaxing 5 days. The staff is very attentive and always helpful.
My husband and I visited here for our honeymoon and this place is nothing less than perfection. The staff are incredibly kind and helpful. The space and private beach is beautiful. You have access to paddle boards, a hobbit cat, canoes and snorkeling gear on the beach.
We really enjoyed the secluded feeling that the resort was going after. It really makes you enjoy the serenity. The breakfast was delicious every day. Also the sky deck for yoga is amazing!
Highly recommend this place!
My partner and I stayed at this resort and we have only great things to say. The resort is beautiful, the private beach is paradise and very quiet. This is a very relaxing, quiet resort. We enjoyed our time here and would stay here again in the future. The staff are friendly. The buffet breakfast was really good with a good selection.
As a last minute Christmas break we booked 9 days Hotel Belmond- we wanted true R&R after a really busy year.
The hotel is set back from the main road about 20-30 mins north from the airport and is quite secluded with its own private beach and lovely pool area.
The accomodation consists of tastefully nestled in wooden and brick villas. The villas are roomy, very comfortable, quiet and reasonably private given the resort can take at a max 200 guests. While we were there this was around 80 guests.
Activities and spa facilities are on offer - I took the challenge with Mauy Thay boxing, 5km bike ride round local spots thanks to Lek, our activities instructor but also did flower arranging and fruit carving plus water sports - paddle boarding, kayaking and snorkelling.
The team at the hotel are fabulous and cannot do enough to look after you, the food is excellent as are the cocktails. Internet is very good and reliable. Local attractions close by include The Fishermen’s Village for food and water sports plus Friday night market.
Loved the most - boxing, bike ride, my big beach bed, sunset and early morning swim.
This is not a razzmatazz holiday - it is about slowing down, enjoying a good book, taking in the beach and some sun and allowing yourself to just be.
Thoroughly recommend a minimum of 3-5 nights and probably 7 as a maximum.
