Conrad Koh Samui
Koh Samui, Thailand
Overlooking the picturesque Gulf of Thailand, this exquisite property was designed to organically connect to the local Thai culture and environment.
Each villa is outfitted with tropical hardwood floors, Thai silk and local artwork, creating a sense of organic luxury. With rich granites and floor-to-ceiling glass panels, Wilson made this resort sleek, inviting and rejuvenating.
Upon entry, the reception pavilion is located at the highest point of the property, perched away from the cliff on stilts and creating an ‘on-top-of the-world’ perspective.
Each exclusive villa is designed for an impression of harmony in seclusion.
The All-Day Dining Experience
Zest, the all-day-dining venue, is a standalone structure with an expansive outdoor terrace overlooking the property and the Gulf of Siam beyond. The unique feature here is the concept of a food library, with a wall of refrigerated display cabinets of small dishes. Foods are displayed vertically as opposed to the traditional tabletop style, changing the perspective of buffet dining.
The Specialty Dining Experience
Jahn, a 24-seat cliffs-edge Thai specialty restaurant, is a freestanding structure dramatically stilted out from the cliff face. It is a sexy, yet modern, dark space accented with traditional Thai gold leaf motifs on the columns that stand the length of the restaurant. Flickering candles and black and gold tones exude a sense of magic and romance.
Private therapy rooms offer relaxing, uninterrupted vistas while guests receive rejuvenating, indulgent treatments. Step onto the private deck to soak in the sunshine and gaze at lush rainforests and cerulean sea.
