ACCLAIMED FOR ITS DRAMATIC cliffside location that provides stunning sunset views, InterContinental Koh Samui Resort lets guests enjoy views of the Gulf of Thailand, five nearby islands, and Ang Thong National Marine Park.
Surrounded by 22 acres of lush tropical gardens that descend to a private white sandy beach, visitors can choose from 79 guest rooms, suites, and villas in three different zones that offer uninterrupted views from the cliffside, sea-level offerings, and beachfront pool villas.
On the property are six public pools, four unique restaurants and bars, the award-winning Baan Thai Spa by HARNN, and kids’ activities at Planet Trekkers, including ecology awareness, gardening projects, and arts and crafts projects using recycled objects.
The hotel’s ‘In the Know’ concierge brings the history, culture, and beauty of Koh Samui to life with an intriguing range of excursions, including visits to the traditional fishing village Bo Phut, Grandfather and Grandmother rocks, and the 12-meter tall Big Buddha statue at Wat Phra Ya.
Celebrate with a Sundowner
Air Bar, an outdoor cocktail lounge with panoramic ocean views of the Gulf of Thailand, is among the resort’s highlights for guests and locals alike. From magic hour until the sun well and truly disappears, this incredible sundowner destination is a favorite for pre-dinner drinks, sunset celebrations, and wedding receptions.
There’s something magical about toasting the blazing sun as it sets with a signature Samui Mist, made with Diplomatico Reserva rum, pandanus syrup, smoked coconut cream, and a pandanus garnish.
After cocktails, visit one of the property’s restaurants for fine dining with flavor. Amber is the resort’s elegant Thai and Asian outlet with a wine cellar featuring over 1,000 labels and a sommelier to pair wines with every dish expertly.
Flames is InterContinental Koh Samui Resort’sResort’s stylish European restaurant offering a range of entries from across the continent. Both restaurants offer indoor and outdoor seating, while the Fireside is an informal bar situated beside a beach bonfire — perfect for an aperitif or digestif.
Just Right for Romance
Voted Asia’s leading wedding resort, this idyllic resort can accommodate up to 200 guests in various venues around the property, including the beach, a seaside lawn, beside the infinity pool, and on Asia’s longest over-water wedding aisle, their 150-meter private pier.
The resort is also a top choice for before and after the wedding. Specializing in in-villa bespoke sunset proposals, many a romantic story has had its beginning at InterContinental Koh Samui Resort.
Post-wedding, the destination is a hit with honeymooners, who say that the beachfront villas lend themselves to romantic escapes thanks to private pools, wine bars, and sundecks with total privacy.

The traditional Thai wooden interiors offer a cozy, natural, and authentically Thai feeling, while the spa menu outlines a wide range of local, Western, and Ayurvedic therapeutic treatments.
The Tropical Samui Passage treatment reflects the history and culture of the locale, pairing fresh coconut collected from the resort’s gardens with signature HARNN products.
