Sail away on Meliá Koh Samui’s remarkable nautical theme

Fronting the powder white sands and aquamarine waters of secluded Choeng Mon Beach, on the north-eastern tip of Koh Samui island in the Gulf of Thailand, Meliá Koh Samui is the first property in Thailand launched under Spanish hotel group Meliá Hotels International. Opened January 10, 2020, the five-star resort’s host of world-class facilities include a 700-metre long lagoon pool that meanders through the resort’s lush grounds like a river and a picture-perfect two-level infinity pool with sunken seating and in-water loungers. The nautical-themed resort, that pays tribute to Thailand’s rich maritime history in an understated yet compelling way, is also home to two restaurants under the stewardship of award-winning executive chef Azizskandar Awang, an executive lounge, a swim-up bar, spa, fitness center, ballroom and, for families, a kid’s club, outdoor playground and mini water park. Meliá Koh Samui’s 159 rooms and 41 suites include rooms with private terraces that segue into the lagoon pool and elegant two-story “boat suites” made from meticulously refurbished teak wood merchant vessels.
