Just twenty minutes south of Koh Samui International Airport on Lamai beach on Samui’s east coast lies an enchanting island paradise known as Le Meridien Koh Samui Resort and Spa. At this unique and splendid resort Thai and Chinese craftsmanship combine in perfect harmony across 14 villas and 63 suites. Serene and welcoming Le Meridien has plenty to offer, both resident and nonresident guests alike.
Le Meridien Koh Samui Resort and Spa goes far behind the traditional five-star hotel experience, here guests will discover a new perspective with a strong focus on contemporary art and cuisine. Art comes in many forms at this splendid resort, both visual and conceptual. From the Chinese antique collectible items in the HUB, Le SPA, venues and guest rooms to the contemporary LED lighting and fiber optics illuminating the Feng Shui feature, to the more traditional Chinese lanterns and fragrant candles, this curated art experience provides guests with a subtle yet calculated stimulation of the senses.
Showcasing Koh Samui’s strong Chinese heritage, Feng Shui, the Chinese art of creating harmonious surroundings that enhance the balance of Yin and Yang, has been subtly implemented throughout the scope of the resort’s design. The main entrance is an extraordinary octagonal porte cochere modeled after the Yin and Yang, encouraging guests to leave all stress and worries behind as they enter the island paradise. The exteriors of the buildings feature a contemporary fusion of Chinese-Thai architecture, while the soothing interiors feature décor and artwork incorporating a melting pot of Thai, Chinese, Burmese and Indian elements. The lush landscaping is distinctly Balinese, seamlessly blending the surrounding verdant jungle foliage with the serene beachfront location.
