Koh Samui, Thailand is home to some of the world’s biggest resort brands like Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons and Belmond. But come September 15, all eyes will be on a private island just off the northeast coast of Koh Samui with the opening of Cape Fahn Hotel.
The resort features just 22 villas, with the smallest spanning more than 3,000 square feet. Strategically placed throughout the island, each villa is nestled into lush foliage and private from the others. All accommodations have separate living areas that open up to sun decks, complete with a private 26-foot pool. Vaulted ceilings give a spacious feel while oversized windows showcase views of the Gulf of Thailand.
The resort features three saltwater pools, including one adults-only pool. A spa, yoga classes and poolside movie nights are just some of the amenities that guests will be able to enjoy. For the ultimate day excursion, hop aboard the private yacht charter that will whisk guests off to other islands in the surrounding areas. And during low tide, make your way across the narrow strait to reach Koh Samui and Choeng Mon beach.
Dining options range from the all-day dining outlet Hue, serving up international and Thai cuisine, to fine-dining Crest, which offers a French-inspired menu. Guests can also partake in cooking classes or cozy up beachside with a private, romantic dinner.
