Experience Samui in style

Intercontinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort

Postcard-perfect beaches with crystal seas, awe-inspiring sunsets...Koh Samui may be a well trodden path since backpackers first discovered its riches over 40 years ago but the island is fast becoming a 'must do' for those looking for luxury rather than a beach hut with friends and the Intercontinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort is at the forefront of this change. Located on the unspoiled south-west 'Virgin Coast' of the island, populated with fishing villages and secluded bays, this five star resort truly deserves its place on the New York Times Bestseller '1000 Places to See Before You Die'.

Set on a lush tropical estate, your arrival to this slice of paradise begins as you alight from the hotel’s speed boat onto the private 150m licensed jetty (this is the only hotel on Koh Samui to boast its own private jetty).  As you enter the lobby, the views are guaranteed to take your breath away; a panorama of the famed ‘Five Islands’ that will become your personal playground for your stay and a view that will stay with you forever. The resort offers 7 swimming pools, each with a unique design, two tennis courts, water sports centre and a yoga deck.  Guests can choose to dine at one of the resorts two exquisite restaurants, opt for in-villa dining or even a unique candlelit meal on the private pier, which stretches diagonally into the ocean.

Offering a choice of villa or hotel accommodation to suit lovers, honeymooners, friends and families, this is definitely not for backpackers. 

Families want luxury too

With a number of two-bedroom cliff-side villas set across two floors, Intercontinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort offers by far the most spacious accommodation on the island, making it ideal for family groups who are looking for a truly special getaway. The resort has a dedicated kids pool, the Planet Trekkers ‘kids club’ entertains and inspires younger guests (catering specifically for two distinct age groups 4-7 and 8-12) and the kids spa treatments are a real treat.

Easy to get to for British visitors, with a hassle free changeover in Bangkok, the Intercontinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam resort offers the ultimate in affordable luxury, with seven night packages starting from £1,239 per person including direct flights from London to Bangkok. To book, visit
