One of Thailand's largest islands, Koh Samui is popular among holidaymakers because of its beautiful palm-fringed, white-sand beaches, fragrant coconut groves, dense, mountainous rainforest, refined resorts and posh spas with a relaxed Asian-Western ambience, such as at the Le Méridien Koh Samui Resort & Spa.
This luxurious 4.5-star resort is directly on Lamai Beach, overlooking the Gulf of Thailand. There is a 224-metre floating pier with options for private drinks and dining by sunset, while a unique feature of the resort is its 'Celebration of the Day' lantern ceremony at 19.19pm. The Coco Splash Adventure & Water Park offers hours of entertainment for families, and is fairly near the resort.
The 64 elegant, high-ceilinged suites feature contemporary décor with traditional Thai touches, an LCD screen TV, a well-stocked mini bar, and large, open-air bathrooms with rain showers and/or double bathtubs; they also feature enclosed verandas or open-air terraces with sun loungers/day beds. Additionally, there are 14 stand-alone villas, some with their own private plunge or infinity pools, or access to the shared pool; these have espresso machines, and a private courtyard or dining area with garden or ocean views.
Amenities include a restaurant and bar/lounge, a luxury full-service spa, a 24-hour fitness centre offering daily pilates and yoga classes, an outdoor infinity pool with a pool bar, a garden, a picnic area with barbecue facilities and a library.
