If you close your eyes and imagine a tropical paradise, chances are you’re picturing something very much like Koh Samui: pristine white sand beaches, crystal-clear turquoise waters, palm trees and lush green foliage. Samui is still relatively young as a world-class tourism destination: it wasn’t “discovered” until the 1970s, and major development didn’t start until the 1990s.
While the island has seen rapid expansion over the past two decades, InterContinental® Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort remains an oasis of tranquility. Located on the unspoiled west coast of Koh Samui, within the exclusive enclave of Taling Ngam (Beautiful Shore) Bay, the resort offers up dazzling views over the Gulf of Thailand and some of the most spectacular sunsets in the world.
Yet you’re never far from all that Koh Samui has to offer. Our “In the Know” Concierge Team will help you experience the sights, sounds and tastes of Samui, that rarest of locations in Thailand where luxury and local charm coexist.
Koh Samui’s most developed town, Chaweng, offers shopping, nightlife, restaurants, entertainment and a bustling beachfront. Other towns on the island, such as Nathon and Bo Phut, are slower-paced and offer a more local experience of markets, shops and a colorful fisherman’s village.
Popular local attractions include the Big Buddha at Wat Phra Yai, Namaung Safari Park, and the whimsical Grandfather and Grandmother rock formations.
InterContinental® Samui Baan Taling Ngam’s private dock and speedboat offer luxurious access to many nearby offshore attractions, such as Angthong National Marine Park, a breathtaking archipelago of 42 islands featuring limestone cliffs, waterfalls, lush jungles and exotic wildlife. Nearby island destinations such as Koh Tao and Koh Phangan are also easily accessible.
However you choose to spend your holiday in paradise, InterContinental® Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort is a perfect base to enjoy the very best of Koh Samui.
