From dazzling sea views to dramatic pools, InterContinental Koh Samui dials up the romance.
Picture this: Sinking into a poolside sun lounge as the last of the day disappears, gazing over a long stretch of palm-fringed sand and the ocean while you wait for your cocktail to be delivered. Such are the daily demands at the award-winning InterContinental Koh Samui Resort, enjoying a secluded perch enveloped by lush gardens on the west coast of the tropical Thai resort island of Samui.
The five-star property was recognised at the 2018 World Travel Awards as Asia’s Most Romantic Resort, Asia’s Leading Beach Resort and Thailand’s Leading Beach Resort, bolstering its appeal for those looking for seclusion as well as sun and sea.
The resort awes visitors with its views of the Gulf of Thailand, the array of international cuisine and its impeccable service to its 79 cliffside suites and beachfront villas with private plunge pools and shimmering water views. There are six other pools scattered around the resort, four of them uniquely designed with different colours inspired by the the Samui sky. The multi-award-winning Baan Thai Spa by HARNN will soon have you in holiday mode with a menu of full-body massages, aromatic scrubs and nourishing body masks.
Needless to say, the hideaway is hugely popular among wedding parties and honeymooners When it comes to saying “I do,” the resort features a portfolio of spectacular wedding venues. Couples can choose from intimate to lavish and extravagantly themed, with an on-site specialist available to curate every aspect of your big day. For memorable nuptials, walk down Asia’s longest overwater wedding aisle, then celebrate in Azure lounge overlooking the ocean.
Turn up the romance by making the most of the exclusive private dining offerings – think, a meal that defies gravity and sees you dining over an infinity pool on a floating glass island, looking out over coconut trees. And the jaw-dropping Air Bar serves up signature cocktails, backdropped by blazing sunsets and vistas across the Gulf of Thailand.
