Cliffside oasis on Koh Samui with seven pools, killer sunsets and a private beach
Once the famous Baan Taling Ngam Resort, the 79-room InterContinental sits on 22 manicured acres along the western shore of Koh Samui. The island is known as one of the most beautiful in the world, and the hotel’s slew of amenities only adds to its appeal. Seven pools offer a daily alternative to the private beach, and four restaurants serve a selection of Thai, Southeast Asian and fusion flavors. The guestrooms are done up in polished hardwood floors, deep soaking tubs, Egyptian cotton linens, goosedown comforters and a beachy color scheme with pops of turquoise and violet. The cliffside Baan Thai spa provides ample relaxation for adults, with holistic treatments like the Siamese herbal body scrub and a healing tea ritual. And for the little ones, the Planet Trekkers kids club offers an array of activities, from cooking classes to environmental restoration projects.
In the Area
Koh Samui earned its reputation as a bucket-list getaway thanks to its untouched sand and undersea attractions. Beyond the resort’s private beach, there’s Lamai and Chaweng, two of the most popular sandy stretches on the island, or you can head inland to Namuang Falls for a short hike with a breathtaking payoff. Across from the resort, Ang Thong National Marine Park has a cluster of protected islands with hidden coves and first-rate snorkeling. Charter a half- or full-day boat trip through the hotel concierge and explore the area on your own.
