Experience true relaxation at this pool-per-villa resort in tropical Koh Samui.
99/9 Moo 4
Just over the ridgeline from the party-happy sands of Chaweng is Banyan Tree’s private palm tree lined bay. In an architectural and engineering feat the villas dramatically ascend the steep hillside resting on stilts. There is a reason they use carts to transport the guests here, the paths are steep. Each of the 78 villas comes complete with its own sizeable swimming pool, but don’t let this fool you – the beach boasts crystal clear waters worthy of a swim. The villas are designed to make you feel as though you are shut off from the outside world – surrounded as they are by lush tropical foliage with views of the blue waters beyond. Down on the beachfront, Patricia Urquiola’s iconic Canasta loungers for B&B Italia line the sand, extending the comfort of the resort right down to water level; whilst poolside you can make the most of their bar with a creative cocktail list designed exclusively by their mixologists.
