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
My wife and I, joined together with 2 more couples close to us, spent the most memorable, relaxing and cherished vacation that we recall having taken. Back in the US, all this seems to be a dream and we were in it for real. This gorgeous location is a true gem in Koh Sumai , the oceanfront villas are beautiful , superb tasting food, and exceptional and friendly service from all.
Memories of this paradise will linger on and on.
My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at Belmond Napasai. It was our first time in Koh Samui, so we weren't quite sure what to expect, but we had a fantastic time and would definitely come back both to the hotel and to the island.
We had a beach villa room which was incredible, particularly the private pool.
We did get bitten a lot by mosquitos so bring some deet or similar!
What a special place this was, an utter hidden gem. The beach side villa was excellent, staff were superb, food wonderful and just a lovely atmosphere and wonderful place to stay. Certainly take advantage of the Belmond boat, great fun to be had there.
What a stay. My wife an I just spent 4 nights at this beautiful located resort to relax and unwind from everything. From the beginning on, everyone was so helpful and friendly, it really exceeded our expectations by far. Especially Tom from the restaurant and Dominique from Guest Services took good care of us and gave the trip this little special touch. We stayed at one of the Ocean Facing Villas which was very well maintained and close to the pool and the restaurants. We had dinner twice at the beach restaurant and the selection is pretty large and everything we have tried was from excellent quality. Thanks again to the whole team and keep going in what you are doing.
My stay was absolutely amazing! The great customer service started via email when i was trying to book my shuttle service. Once i landed, I was greeted with a smile and the driver was very friendly and very informative of the island. He made several recommendations on what i can do during my stay. Check in, Check out, Spa, Restaurant, Beach, and Housekeeping was all outstanding. The staff were extremely friendly and professional. They truly shaped my experience at this hotel and i look forward to coming back hopefully next year!!
