While this property looks amazing on its website - its just stunningly breathtaking when you actually arrive at Samui Baan. Asmara, their delightful AGM assisted us with a flawless check-in process which appropriately acknowledge my platinum ambassador status and went even further to provide us with a quick history of the resort as well as useful local recommendations. She and the rest of the staff have a sincerity that is sometimes rare at 5 star resorts. At this location, you get the sense that the guests, the property and the staff are allowed to flourish to their fullest potential. I'm a fairly snobby foodie but was pleased with the breakfast selection - while its not vast - its all of the highest quality. I loved the fresh made juices and taro croissants. Pools, pools, pools. There are infinity pools with picture postcard perfect views at all levels of the resort. The Spa is serene, private and offers lovely signature treatments in exceptional rooms. The view from the beach along their private jetty to the five islands is simply stunning. This is a backdrop for a Gucci or LV advertising campaign in the making (if its hasnt been used a fashion shoot already?).
I'm generally not a resort person, I like to get outside and see 'real life' but this lovely hotel did bring a lot of the local thai culture into the property so I was able to enjoy the best of both worlds.
Highly recommend this as a perfect getaway for both a Honeymoon or just to beat the stress of life.
