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.

The Lobby

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.

 
 The reception desks are anchored by a welcoming backdrop that is reminiscent of a traditional Thai roof detail, very graceful in form and finished in gold-leaf. The remainder of the space is open to instill a sense of peace and tranquility.

The Villas

Each exclusive villa is designed for an impression of harmony in seclusion.

 
 The design team emphasized the clean lines of the architecture and blended them into the interiors, and diminished the boundaries between indoors and outdoors to showcase the uninterrupted panoramic views.

 Local tropical woods and stones sourced from the island are used together with local fabrics to achieve an exotic oasis of harmony and elegance that is sympathetic to its geography.

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.
