Overview

Cliffside oasis on Koh Samui with seven pools, killer sunsets and a private beach

The Lowdown

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.

Chilled out Paradise

Travelling for one and a half hour to the hotel from the airport had almost shunned my zeal when this lovely manager Seen (Savitri) welcomes us at the main entrance with her most beautiful smile... You step in the lobby, the view of the sea across zaps you up... Welcomed by the most refreshing chilled drink in the slightly humid weather was most appreciated...
We in the amazing cliff room with the spectacular view of the sea from our personal terrace...
The hotel with seven different coloured pools, two restaurants (this could be a couple more), kids zone, adventure sports, well equipped gym and out of the world Spa gives an outstanding service.. The hotel team is most hospitable and always smiling...
I came here with my husband’s office colleagues along with their spouses on an off site meet...
Great company, fantastic ambiance, delicious food and on the top hospitality made our three days one of the best days this year...

Thanks much for the lovely place... will definitely come back here, if in Koh Samui...

Paradise on earth

When we booked to stay here we weren’t entirely sure. It is on the west coast of the island and most resorts are around the airport on the east. We knew, as an Intercontinental, it would have high quality service, but we thought it might feel a little too isolated, so we hired a car so that we could visit other parts of the island. However, we needn’t have worried, it is a beautiful paradise. Peaceful, elegant and totally relaxing. We had to force ourselves to leave the hotel to use the car.
Everything is well thought through and has a feeling of luxury.
Our room was spectacular with breath taking sunset views.
The club benefits are well worth it. The afternoon tea and cocktails in the club lounge felt like a VIP experience.
Pools are scattered around the hillside of the hotel and we had a pool to ourselves.
The staff give such great attention to detail, but I have to mention our butler Aof. He really looked after us, even appearing with a surprise birthday cake when he heard us talking about the fact them at it was my partner’s birthday.
This place is paradise, I definitely intend to visit again

We were so sad to leave this amazing hotel!

We would like to deeply thank you for the amazing hospitality during our honeymoon.
We had enjoyed every single moment of it and the amazing room!

Every single staff member with whom we came in contact was attentive, kind and professional.
Breakfast at Amber restaurant, tea time and happy hour at the club were AMAZING!

Will definitely be recommending to all our friends who go to Samui.

Thank you again for the best vacation!

Beautiful beach.....!

Talking Ngam is not your obvious destination as away from the main points of attraction on the island.......down South is less populated and the beach simply beautiful.....not to be missed while on the island.....!
