Conrad Koh Samui has all the ingredients for a perfect beach holiday.

Looking over the infinity-edge pool of the Conrad Koh Samui Resort & Spa, it is easy to indulge in grandiose daydreams. No one can blame you for imagining that your swimming pool reaches all the way to the azure blue horizon, and thinking something like “the whole Southern China Sea: Mine.”

CKS_PlungePool_03_HR_CMYK_reConrad Koh Samui Resort & Spa is a luxury all-pool villa – 80 free-standing of them — property set on an entire-hillside on the southernmost tip of the island overlooking Taling Ngam Bay, one of the most picturesque parts of Thailand. All the pool villas offer generous views of the Gulf of Thailand.

How generous? The resort’s owns an ample 25 acres in the southwest tip of Koh Samui, and views are accordingly clear and tranquil. Cyan blue. Down spreads the white sand of Aow Thai Beach, and forward the sea, your massive playground. If swimming in the ocean is not your thing, each villa has a 10-22.5m pool, so hotel guests can enjoy leisurely swims, sunbathing sessions or pool plays in their own private setting.

As the property is situated on a green hilltop, the surrounding exotic forest offers privacy to all villa-dwellers. Thus, no inadvertently shared neighbors´ snores, or full moon party soundtracks, only the calming lull of the ocean, for a peace-seeking travelers full enjoyment.

Creature Comforts
Conrad Royal - BathroomOf the 80 villas, 65 are One-Bedroom Pool Villas, 14 Ocean-view Two Bedroom Pool Villas, and one Conrad Royal Ocean-view Pool Villa (the suite). All of the villas are furnished in contemporary Thai-style, with original artwork. Bedrooms and bathrooms are conveniently large, and one window-wall opens to a balcony, which adds a feel of space.

The island setting does not exclude the latest technology. One deductive reason is like all modern resorts Conrad Koh Samui must compete for the business travelers´ favor with better-connected resorts in the whole region of Southeast Asia. This is why Conrad has many gimmicks for a vacationing high-flying geek. Some of the highlights include: Apple TV based computer system IPTV, iPod docking station, Surround Sound System, and LCD Flat Panel TV with HD, cable, and movie channels, plus on-demand video games. Most importantly, complimentary Internet access is offered throughout the resort.

Flexibly from Home to Work

For many guests, the villa is not only a temporary home, but it must also serve as a potential office. Consequently, even the most affordable One Bedroom Pool Villa has a long list of work-related amenities: an ergonomic desk chair, a work desk with adjustable lamp, convenient electrical outlets, a lap desk, a sofa, an iron/ironing board, a hairdryer, signature task lighting, a refrigerator, an espresso machine, and local newspaper delivery.

The space must also cater to naps, for example in-between meetings at their 130-guests´ Aow Thai Function Room. And a business traveler especially knows the value of a good night´s sleep — or a power nap — so the pool villa boasts black-out curtains, signature bedding, luxurious 250 thread count sheets, a choice of pillows, throw blankets, and an alarm radio. Luxurious, undisturbed, yet controllable sleep is a high priority. If something does come up though, housekeeping will be available to assist the guests with any further wishes, such as a change of a pillow throughout the 24 hours.

World within
Conrad Royal - Outside TerraceAlmost necessary because of the secluded location, Conrad Samui offers a considerable amount of services, a veritable world in itself. Three restaurants, two lounges, and a wine cellar with over 3,000 vintages operate in the premises. There is a spa with designated beauty, holistic, and wellness programs, and a fitness center with yoga, tai chi, Thai boxing, and aqua aerobics classes. Seeing the professionally equipped spa, it makes sense that some come to this part of the world not because of mai tais but for a detox.

Even kids will not be bored. The Turtle Kids´ Club gathers the smaller travelers for ducky and fun activities, such as workshops of cultural arts and handicrafts, as well as indoor and outdoor games. Not only does it make the vacation more interesting for the kids, this also means the adults may rest their feet by the pool or chill in the spa for a moment. If in need of a one-day silence retreat, the resort also offers baby-sitting services for additional charges.

World Outside
Saying this, some may rather spend their valuable free time in activities or shopping. For these wishes, the resort offers multiple attractive options. Firstly, there are sailing, diving, and boat trips, which can be arranged from their 120m-private jetty. A hint: diving is especially recommended because the region hosts some of Thailand´s premier diving spots. Other close-by attractions include Chaweng Beach (for shopping and nightlife), Lamai Beach (for more chilled dinners), golfing in Santiburi Country Club, elephant trekking, or visiting Wat Kiri Wongkaram (“temple of the mummified monk”).

Altogether, Conrad Koh Samui has all the ingredients for a perfect beach holiday. Whether for leisure or for business, it has something to offer every guest, from pristine nature to high-tech in-room entertainment, not to mention – again — a fruitful setting for daydreaming of almost megalomanic proportions. It is only up to you to visit and find your own paradise.
