- AJ, Kent



This 88 all-pool Villas resort combines the best elements of a tropical getaway with white beaches and sun. The resort is nestled in a series of cascading terraces on a private hill cove on the south-eastern coast of Koh Samui, overlooking the sapphire waters of scenic Lamai Bay.

Retreat from the bustle of the outside world and into this serene environment as your days pass away in a gentle flow of tranquillity, serenaded by the cool sea breezes off the Gulf of Thailand. Choose from iconic dining venues, the island's largest individual infinity pools in the villas, the award winning Banyan Tree Spa or The Rainforest, Koh Samui's only hydrotherapy wellness facility.
