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
What can I say about our stay here other than wow! From arrival you are greeted by beautiful views and amazing service, which only continues throughout your stay. We had an amazing time staying at the four seasons and can not recommend it highly enough for anyone considering a resort in Koh Samui.
After recommendations from other trip advisor reviews, we requested villa 504 and we were not disappointed. The views were amazing. I recommend requesting villas 503-505 if you can as the views are undisturbed and more private.
We had dinner at a number of different places across the resort but I would definitely recommend the massaman curry at koh and to do the private cove dinner as this really topped off our experience.
In terms of day activities, we also did paddle boarding and a cooking class, both of which were complimentary. We also did the beach massage whilst we were there and I can honestly say it was the best massage we have both ever had.
We were welcomed by a very well trained and professional staff, unfortunately we weren’t staying there but decided to have lunch at the beach restaurant where the food was really good and the waiters very friendly.
We also got the chance to visit one of their villas which was amazing,the room was new modern and really nice.
Can’t wait to stay there during my next visit
I stayed for four nights arriving on my 60th birthday. I had the FS car service pick me up at the airport, great choice as I was given lots of information and tips on my journey to the resort. I booked a deluxe villa with swimming pool which was fabulous and had been decorated with a HP banner plus a cake and bottle of fizz were left for me. All the staff are extremely welcoming and provide excellent service, they always stop to greet you and ask about your day. I had in-room lunch on my first day, excellent service. I booked half-board which I was so pleased I did, you can eat in any of the restaurants but I have to admit the Thai was my favourite for both lunch and dinner and also the menu changes often so you have a variety of choices. Breakfast was amazing, so many choices and sitting outside to eat and enjoy the view was amazing. The F&B director was always around at breakfast and dinner chatting to guests and again offering tips. The concierge staff are also excellent. It's buggy service everywhere as the resort is huge and getting one was always quick - I did walk to the beach as this was downhill from my villa (403). The whole place is really amazing and I'm so glad I stayed there, there are also daily activities, yoga, cooking lessons etc. There is a weekly barbecue on the beach which I did attend which was lovely and included a fire show, there was also a cocktail reception hosted by the GM but sadly I missed that. All in all it's definitely a 5 star experience and I would highly recommend for all types of travellers. Oh and the spa is heaven, I had an amazing treatment there. My only feedback would be please get rid of the single use plastic toothbrushes in the bathrooms - bamboo toothbrushes would be a better option. The beach (sadly like most now) washes up plastic daily, yes they keep it clean but it's a big problem worldwide for everyone...
Everything detail was above and beyond our expectations, from the moment we arrived at the airport to when we left. Resort staff was the best ever, each and every interaction was a pleasure. Our every need was met promptly and with great professionalism.
Want to come and check room for my friend’s visit. The lady (nute) has no smile and patience at all. She said go to internet to check room. But I am already there at hotel. Then she ask me to stand outside and waiting (really hot btw). I know they are busy, but at least invite guest inside and seat waiting. But I was refused to stand outside in front of gate. Really disappointed and unexpected.
