Four Seasons Koh Samui
Four Seasons Koh Samui is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Beach Hotels
Situated on a steep hillside with dramatic views over the Gulf of Thailand and the beautiful Ko Pha Nga Island, this luxurious resort has some of the most comfortable and beautiful rooms on the island.
62 spacious villas are scattered throughout the property’s wonderful location, where atmospheric jungle terrain meets a dreamy turquoise tropical beach. Each secluded and elegant room comes with a private infinity pool and a chic furnished living area beneath a thatched canopy. The clean and bright interiors reflect the calm and serene island setting with their sleek white walls, azure blue details and woven furniture; not to mention the marble bathrooms, which feel particularly fresh and spacious, and provide the ideal spot to unwind after a day on the beach.
Modern amenities can be found throughout the hotel, from a swish infinity pool with seascape views to a state-of-the-art fitness centre and, of course, speedy Wi-fi. The signature on-site spa is particularly luxurious, offering Thai massages and other soothing treatments within a tranquil ‘secret garden’ – just heaven. For those seeking complete relaxation, we recommend joining a yoga or meditation session along the pristine seashore in silence save for the sound of the ocean waves gently lapping onto the sand. Alternatively, if you are seeking something more active, choose between an array of activities and excursions: snorkelling has to be our first pick when it comes to water sports on offer here, and the cooking and cocktail-mixing classes back on dry land are also not to be missed during a stay here.
Dining here is a treat, as the main restaurant ‘Koh Thai Kitchen’ serves a great selection of Southern Thai food and offers incredible views from its prime location up high on the hillside. For tasty Western and International cuisine, eat at ‘Pla Pla’ in a more laid back atmosphere. A highlight of this hotel is the opportunity to enjoy the fine food al fresco on the beach as it makes for a memorable and romantic dinner. Also not to be missed is sipping an expertly-made cocktail on the sand within twinkling lights at the ‘Cocorum Bar’.
We highly recommend this property if you are after sheer indulgence as the friendly and attentive team of staff here really are superb and attend to your every need. Your days here are bound to while away faster than expected as time flies when you are enjoying the picture-perfect beach and reclining around the glossy pool under the dappled shade of the coconut palm trees that sway in the breeze all around this idyllic resort.
When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.
