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
Beautiful resort which is topped off by an incredible staff that attends to every need and whim. The restaurant staff are so careful to give you space but attention when needed. The welcoming management is top-notch. Will return.
We visited this resort in January 2019. Beautiful resort, wonderful staff and nothing is too much trouble. All the staff are very friendly and helpful.
Lovely restaurants and bars. Some nice touches on the beach, bringing you little drinks or snacks during the day, cleaning your sunglasses.
Resort is very hilly but they take you around by golf buggy and you never have to wait too long for the buggies. The buggy drivers are all very friendly.
Rooms are lovely - great facilities. There is however one big draw back for this hotel and that is the rooms don't get any sun. We paid extra for a one bedroom villa with pool but to be honest this was a waste of money because our pool virtually got no sun so we did not use it, instead we went down to the beach everyday, which is lovely but would have been nice to have the sun on our pool. There are 4 seasons private residences as part of the resort on the other side of the mountain and they do get the sun.
The drinks are also very expensive but a great selection of wines. Great food.
Since the opening of the resort we have been several times to Samui and we feel very relaxed each time we arrive at the hotel and are recieved with a smile and a cool drink, enjoying the majestic view on the property and the sea. They manage to give us the same villa every time we return. So very thoughtfull. And welcoming. Food is delicious in each of the restaurants. Staff extremely helpfull And attentive.
This was our second time staying at the amazing Four Seasons Koh Samui and it won’t be our last ! We are a family of 4, 2 adults and a 4 and 10 year old.
Our latest stay saw us checking in for a wonderful 13 nights in a family villa. The staff were thoughtful enough to give us the same fabulous villa that we had 2 years prior.
There is nothing that the staff won’t do for you ! Service is 110% at all times. From the buggy drivers to the wait staff at breakfast they all genuinely love their jobs and love interacting with you.
The kids were at kids club all day every day enjoying the varied craft and sport activities. Who wouldn’t want to hang out in a tree house overlooking the beach as part of their holiday !
The resort pool is the best we have experienced and we have stayed at all the top resorts on Samui. The villa pool was just the right size for some splashing and playing for the kids. The beach is 100% private and sheltered.
Food is varied and delicious. The Thai banquet is fantastic as is the beach bbq.
The pastry team are commended for their amazing work and superb creations. Thank you Dustin. We were even given some macaroons and peanut butter to take home .
Special thanks to : Tak, Tom, Supa, Ben (pool), Pun, Shen, Tina and Cookie.
This was a wonderful stay and we took away terrific memories from our time here.
Well worth the money for the level of service you receive.
You can not get much better than this. The four seasons koh samui had stunning villas such as the family villa, the 2 bed room villa and they even had 5 bedroom Villas.
I stayed with my family in the family villa and the was a pool as soon as we stepped outside (it was a private pool) nice beds and a excellent view of the island opposite us.
We went to the nice beaches and the 50meter infinity pool. Following all this excitement we went to some amazing traditional restaurants as well.
Well done to the general manger and his team to make this an unforgettable stay.
We will definitely be back soon!!!!
