Hyatt makes stylish debut on Thailand’s Koh Samui
The new Hyatt Regency Koh Samui showcases outstanding design by Smith Obayawat of OBA, Pongthep Sagulku of August and Wannaporn Phornprapha of P Landscape.
Conveniently positioned close to the airport on the Thai island of Koh Samui, this sophisticated property takes full advantage of its tropical location.
Simplicity is king in Koh Samui
Koh Samui has welcomed its first Hyatt Hotels Corporation-branded property in the form of Hyatt Regency Koh Samui, a 140-key resort in the vibrant area of North Chaweng. This scheme – the brainchild of a stellar design team that includes Smith Obayawat of OBA, Pongthep Sagulku of August and Wannaporn Phornprapha of P Landscape – aims to immerse visitors in the natural world.
“We are excited to debut Hyatt Regency Koh Samui and invite guests to experience our picturesque retreat and the warmth of Thai hospitality where they can relax and recharge amid this blissful scenery,” said Adrian Pulido, general manager of Hyatt Regency Koh Samui. “Our resort has been thoughtfully designed to offer distinctive accommodation, culture-infused programmes and inspired seasonal menus so that our guests can discover timeless connections and celebrate any occasion with us.”
What’s in store at Hyatt Regency Koh Samui
Among the 140 guestrooms are 24 villas and suites, all of which feature private balconies. Moreover, the Hyatt Regency property’s seven beachfront pool villas promise to deliver the ultimate luxury experience in unforgettable surroundings.
There are five swimming pools dotted throughout the resort, and further entertainment for kids is provided over at Camp Hyatt. Meanwhile, the spa boasts no fewer than five treatment rooms, and events such as wedding celebrations can be held in the pillar-free ballroom or on the manicured lawn.
Hyatt Regency Koh Samui also features four F&B outlets: all-day dining is available at restaurant Yangna, while the outdoor Sesun Grill & Beach Bar is perfect for refuelling in front of expansive sea views, Cobalt serves fresh juices, and Kube specialises in Thai-inspired afternoon tea and carefully crafted cocktails.
