Six Senses Samui
Choeng Mon Beach
This hidden bamboo paradise is worth the once-in-a-lifetime splurge. Set along a rugged promontory, Six Senses strikes the perfect balance between opulence and rustic charm, and defines the term ‘barefoot elegance’...
This library is too cool for school. The entire resort is a sparkling white mirage accented with black trimming and slatted curtains...
The Scent Hotel
Find a taste (and scent if you light your complimentary incense) of Indochine at this resort that recreates the elegance of 1940s and '50s colonial Asia...
The Jungle Club
Chaweng Noi Beach
The perilous drive up the slithering road is totally worthwhile once you take in the incredible views from the top. This isolated mountain getaway is a huge hit among locals and tourists alike...
This hidden, low-key collection of hip huts gathers along a sloping, bouldered terrain punctuated by towering palms. The fan options are rustic but the newest, spacious air-con bungalows are terrific value...
Inter Continental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort
Taling Ngam Beach
Unlike most of Samui’s five-star digs, Baan Taling Ngam has been designed in a ‘classic Thai’ theme. Luxuriously appointed guest accommodation contains custom-made Thai-style furnishings and the service here is impeccable...
Smack in the heart of the action, Palita is a tribute to the never-ending party that is Hat Rin’s Sunrise Beach...
Loyfa Natural Resort
Loyfa scores high marks for its friendly, French-speaking Thai staff, charming gardens and sturdy huts guarding sweeping ocean views. Modern bungalows tumble down the promontory onto an uberprivate sliver of ash-coloured sand...
Buri Rasa Village
Thai-style wooden doors lead to private villa patios and simple yet elegant rooms...
Kirikayan Boutique Resort
Simple whites, lacquered teak and blazing red accents set the colour scheme at this small, hip address along Hat Chaweng’s southern sands. Wander past thick palm trunks and sky-scraping foliage to find the relaxing pool deck at the back.
Jamahkiri Resort & Spa
Wooden gargoyle masks and stone fertility goddesses abound amid swirling mosaics and multi-armed statues at this whitewashed estate. Feral hoots of distant monkeys confirm the jungle theme, as do the thatched roofs and tiki-torched soirees...
Tango Beach Resort
Tango features a string of bungalows arranged along a teak boardwalk that meanders away from an excellent but busy stretch of beach...
Koh Tao Coral Grand Resort
The plethora of pink facades at this family-friendly option feels a bit like Barbie’s dream Thai beach house...
The Blue Parrot
Two cute lines of good-sized, clean bungalows – some tiled with burnt yellow exteriors and others of grey polished cement – lead to the beach. There's a little on-site cafe that travellers say serves great Western and Thai food.
W Retreat Koh Samui
Mae Nam Beach
A bejewelled ‘W’ welcomes guests on the curling road to the lobby, and upon arrival jaws immediate drop while staring out over the glittering infinity pools and endless horizon...
Salad Beach Resort
A full-service retreat along the sands of Salad. Room decor employs an unusual palette of colours, but the grounds are tasteful and understated – especially around the pool.
Mae Nam Beach
If Apple computers designed a hotel, this is what it would look like – all sleek modern lines, white and not a hint of dust. The contrast of this against the turquoise sea and the hotel's large infinity pool makes for a stunning piece of architecture...
Tommy is a trendy address in the heart of Hat Rin, striking a balance between chic boutique and carefree flashpacker hang-out...
The world-famous Full Moon Party was hatched at this scruffy batch of bungalows, and the place has been living on its fame ever since...
In Touch Resort
Older bungalows are a mishmash of bamboo and dark wood, while several rounded air-con rooms have a cave theme – it’s all very Flintstones...
The Tongsai Bay
Choeng Mon Beach
For serious pampering, head to this secluded luxury gem. Expansive and impeccably maintained, the hilly grounds make the cluster of bungalows look more like a small village...
Samui Jasmine Resort
Smack dab in the middle of Hat Lamai, varnished-teak yet frilly Samui Jasmine is a great deal. Go for the lower-priced rooms – most have excellent views of the ocean and the crystal-coloured lap pool.
