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.

Absolutely First Class!

My wife and I have stayed here once before and having enjoyed it so much last time decided to come back. This Hotel is every bit 5 Star and everything about the place exceeded our expectations. Thank you to Fongbeer and her team for making our holiday like a home from come. These people really can’t do enough for you and we hope, one day to return again!

Weekend getaway trip

I spend 3D/2N for weekend getaway alone to recharge and no work. I came to Koh Samui many times and spent most of the time on the other sides like Chaweng, Lamai and Bophut. This is the first time to stay away from crowds. This place is secluded and very good for relax. The view here is stunning and beautiful like many people used to comment especially in lobby and club area. I came here straight away from the airport. I am a member of ambassador and the room I booked is club panoramic ocean view room. I could enjoy club benefits and enjoy sunset view. The staffs are the most impressed from their services in every areas. They are nice, attentive and helpful. They helped to arrange a room to stay for a short period while waiting for the room. I don’t expect this as I arrive early and just thought to spend time in the club lounge should be ok. Anyway, I could change my jeans to shorts. The staffs in Amber are nice as well. They change canapé in club lounge for my first day was Italian and the second day was Chinese which are good thought for people who have Long stay not to feel boring. The breakfast in Amber has a local Thai foods change as well from Khao Kluk Kapi on first morning to Khao Mun Kai on my last day.
The room is very nice, clean, comfortable and of course has good views of ocean... The spa is superb and well trained therapist (Tu). This is one of the very good memorable and wonderful weekend getaway. I would like to thank to K.Kie, K.Tim and many more in club lounge as well as K.Pik, K.Fresh and staffs in Amber staffs. I will find time to return here again.

My mother and I stayed at this beautiful resort for a total of 4 days and 3 nights. It was exceptional! Ranging from the great service from all the staff, the hospitality, and the breathtaking location! Definitely worth the trip down south for this gem.
