MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

If you happen to have visited Koh Samui before its beaches became synonymous with sun-soaked debauchery, and you harbor nostalgia for the good old days, now’s the time to head back to this island off the Thai coast. The same explosion in popularity that made Koh Samui into a riotous nightlife destination has also created demand for secluded getaways in the form of resorts like Banyan Tree Samui, which delivers all the top-notch service and heady atmosphere you’d expect from the venerable hotel group.

Koh Samui is the third-largest island in the archipelago, so even with two huge beaches — Lamai and Chaweng — playing host to overdevelopment, there’s still plenty of untouched coastline for the Banyan Tree Samui to occupy. And make no mistake, this hotel occupies its coastline in style — with 88 villas nestled in the hills overlooking a private inlet, it’s a self-contained ecosystem of refinement, far indeed from the madding crowd. Along with impeccable interiors that hit all the right notes — rain showers, sliding-glass doors, and rich, dark woods — each spacious villa boasts a plunge pool and a spectacular view.

Despite the hotel’s largely successful attempts at private-island peace and quiet, the Banyan Tree experience isn’t what you’d call rugged. Creature comforts abound, beginning with a range of culinary options — go for traditional Thai at Saffron, or fresh-from-the-sea fish at Sands. The spa offers appropriately immersive hydrotherapy sessions, while a fully equipped gym caters to anyone looking for a more western take on wellness. And if you do find yourself with the urge to dip into the local nightlife, Lamai Beach isn’t far off.
