Renowned as the best spot on the island for sunsets, the InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort, awarded Asia’s Leading Beach Resort, offers five-star luxury for guests to celebrate, relax, escape and unwind in secluded tropical surroundings. From the terraced lobby, with its panoramic ocean views, this idyllic hideaway unfolds through lush gardens that lead down to the white sand beach and azure sea of the Gulf of Thailand.

The resort has 79 luxuriously appointed rooms, suites and villas, cascading through 22 acres, as well as the only suspension bridge on the island, which leads to the private beachfront and pier.

There are spacious balconies, with comfortable daybeds for resting and reflecting while gazing at the ocean, which can be turned into romantic, private dining spaces by dusk. Plunge pools beckon for morning dips before daytime lounging by infinity pools. Signature spa treatments await at the award-winning Baan Thai Spa by HARNN: a hidden elevated sanctuary, with Samui Tropical Passage treatments that relax, restore and reinvigorate the mind and body.

Four dining and bar locations all take advantage of the blissful vistas of the sea from elevated viewpoints or with toes dusted in sand. Private soirees surrounded by gardens or jutting out on a pier can be planned with a personal chef to curate a special menu. From the iconic Air Bar, which is nestled on the cliff, guests can witness sublime sunsets over the Gulf of Thailand while sipping masterfully mixed cocktails.

Activities and insider experiences, to connect to the spirit of Samui and create lasting bucket-list memories, are tailor-made for families, couples and individuals. Adventures can arrange to explore the national marine park or see the famous pink dolphins. Kids can have ecological experiences and enjoy Thai culture at Planet Trekkers Kid’s Club as parents relax by seven different pools, sip signature cocktails and enjoy spa treatments.

Guests can tie the knot, get down on one knee, celebrate a special occasion, treat the family or treat themselves as they float above the coconut trees with the glistening ocean and pristine island nuggets as the perfect backdrop.
