This Upscale Sanctuary Showcases the Serene Side of Koh Samui

[SPONSORED CONTENT] Travelers can’t get enough of the InterContinental Koh Samui Resort.

Published on May 15, 2019

For many travelers, Koh Samui is the ultimate seaside escape. Known for its abundance of coconut trees, spectacular shorelines and laid-back vibes, this Thai oasis practically begs all those who visit to relax, unwind and slow down to island time. Yet the island’s ever-increasing popularity with international visitors means that certain areas are no longer as paradisiacal as they once were. 

Fortunately, the soul of Samui is still there and a few secluded havens have retained their splendor. For a true glimpse of the island’s natural beauty, in-the-know travelers head to Taling Ngam Bay, an achingly lovely enclave unscathed by the passage of time. Here, in this little patch of heaven, is where you’ll find the InterContinental Koh Samui Resort. With just 79 spacious suites, rooms and villas, this intimate haven overlooking the Gulf of Thailand is the perfect place to get away from it all. 

Guests at the resort can indulge in pan-Asian cuisine at Amber or dine directly on the sand at Flames, a beachside grill that serves an array of seafood and prime steaks. Many opt to spend the afternoon at Beach Bar, a chilled-out club serving snacks and cocktails on the resort’s exclusive beach, or stop by Air Bar for a sundowner with a view of one of the most spectacular sunsets in the world.
