Design blurs the line between outside and in, opening up villas, restaurants and spas to views of Laem Yai Bay and the Gulf of Siam. The overall look is rustic luxe—think teak loungers, rosewood side tables and Thai silk linens, curtains and throw pillows. At the bottom of the hill, guests lounge poolside under the shade of coconut trees, and waves lap the four-mile long powdery white sand beach. Treatments at the spa take place in open-air salas with outdoor showers and tubs. The guest villas are perched on the side of the hill or right on the beach among swaying palms. Each is furnished with a southern Thai touch that blends modern teak and rosewood furnishings with silk accessories in azure, turquoise and copper. The enormous bathrooms are equipped with his-and-her vanities, terrazzo shell-shaped tubs big enough for two and separate glass-walled rain showers. Sliding glass doors open onto patios or decks for al fresco bathing. The living area extends outdoors to wooden decks furnished for lounging, dining and, with private infinity pools, skinny-dipping. You won’t have to go far for a great Thai meal. The casual beachside Pla Pla focuses on fresh-caught seafood and traditional dishes. For something a little fancier, dine at Lan Tania where Thai cuisine meets Italian perfection—try the larb tuna, which is marinated in local herbs and served with cracked rice and chili powder. Sign up for an elephant trek into the jungle and a dip under a tropical waterfall. Back at the resort, let a masseuse work out all the kinks in your sore legs and back at the Spa, where treatments rely on century-old healing techniques and holistic remedies.
In the Area
Nearby is Koh Samui’s chic beachside town of Chaweng, where you can shop for souvenirs or grab a bite to eat at one of the many cafes. The concierge can arrange a day trip by private car to Na Muang 2, a 260-foot waterfall where you can splash in the pools. For more traditional culture, take advantage of the resort’s Buddhism Experience. A guide escorts guests to Wat Phra Yai—home to the golden three-story Big Buddha—and two other temples. Back at the resort, you can book a private sunset cruise aboard a 66-foot boat. Or take a cocktail class under the tutelage of the resident mixologist.
How to Get There
The staff and members of the concierge were attentive, devoted, and welcoming. They knew my husband and I by name and were able to attend to our every need. I had an allergic reaction while on site and they helped me get the medication I needed quickly. Best hotel experience I have had to date.
I had such an incredible stay with FS Koh Samui! The property is vast built into the cliffside on Koh Samui and features stunning villa-only accommodations. Being a frequent FS traveler, I would have to say the resort at Koh Samui has been in my top 3. The beach is perfect and the restaurants are delicious! Pla Pla is wonderful and worth a visit even if you are not staying at the resort. Also the spa is incredible, they offer an amazing spa journey tucked in their lush tropical forest.
I traveled while I was pregnant and I couldn't have felt more safe and accommodated by the staff during my stay. I would have to say this is one of the top properties in Thailand for a luxurious holiday. I highly recommend!
Sweet dreams are made of this; coconut trees stretch as far as your eyes allow them to, crystal-clear turquoise blue water reflecting the endless horizon above, where pure white satin sand beach is your private playground. This is definitely a homecoming, to our all-time favorite property, Four Season. Koh Samui is where we call home for the week to celebrate our 8th year anniversary together on this romantic getaway.
Get ready for the kiss of the sun on your tanned skin, dozing all day on a hammock on water, feasting on mouth watering gourmet, savouring the perfectly blended cocktails by your very own infinity pool, sweating it up with private Muay Thai boxing classes and pampering yourself with flower-fragranced baths in the garden combined with a flowing massage. Follow us, this way.
Each arrival is marked with the sounding of a traditional gong. Upon our arrival we headed through an unassuming massive door that once opened, led us to this fantastico open-air platform boasting a panorama view of the lush green jungle, the pristine beach, and vivid clear blue sky and water of the mystical Gulf of Siam. Topped by the exquisite interior and exterior designs. Courtesy of Bill Bensley. That is when we realised that we have safely arrived in this paradise, our home away from home.
To say that Four Season Samui has the dreamy location is an understatement. Four Seasons Samui has the hands down, best location. This 42 acres estate is tucked away on the northwest coast of Koh Samui only 40 minutes ride from the airport. This is truly an away from it all beachfront pool villas only resort set amid the stunningly beautiful Gulf of Siam. The property perfectly blends in with its marvellous natural environments; those tropical gardens, conserved coconut groves, this exotic island.
Our villa is spacious with its very own private terrace, large outdoor sofa with bright fluffy yellow pillows, sun deck, infinitely pool and Mr. and Mrs. private sinks with matching wardrobes. The villa is furnished with slick rich dark woods, crisp white walls, high ceilings, airy bathrooms, all brushed with fashionable shades of teal and baby turquoise. Once you throw yourself onto that big white bed, it is hard to recover from it. When we are not lounging all day in the villa, you can find us in these three places; CoCoRum bar, the beach, or the spa.
Sit back and relax by the pool while sipping the most exotic and authentic extensive selections of rum in Thailand at CoCoRum Bar. In fact, this is Asia’s only rum vault! The highly recommended drink is El Presidente, the Cuban made famous cocktail that made its debut during American Prohibition from 1920s to 1940s in Havana. El Presidente at Four Season Samui is made from the first batch of rum aged and bottled here at the Vault.
Your journey to the estate cannot be completed without a tranquil visit to the forest spa. On our anniversary, Patrick surprises me with this hot oil message and the insanely beautiful flower-fragranced baths in the garden for two. It was so perfect. We feel rejuvenated. Another romantic experience that must not be missed is the once-in-a-blue-moon dinner, the magical celebration of private dining experience on the private cove.
What brings Four Seasons close to our hearts is not only the uniqueness and charms of each property but also its people. Service delivered is impeccable from concierge, buggy drivers, housekeeping and gardening team, spa Therapists, and to all the way to the waiters and waiters of every venue and restaurant. There is not a single person who was not smiling and giving its best. We called this place home for a few days and we will surely be back for more.
