Hyatt Regency Koh Samui, the first Hyatt hotel on Thailand’s southern resort island, debuts in the lively area of North Chaweng. The 140-room resort is built around more than 600 protected Yang Na and coconut trees.
The resort was designed by celebrated architect Smith Obayawat of The Office of Bangkok Architects, Pongthep Sagulku of August Design, and Wannaporn Phornprapha of landscape studio, P Landscape. The long lobby with skylights draws attention to a perfectly framed and breathtaking ocean view. Beyond the lobby, guests can walk through a valley of tropical flora and fauna, pick fresh ingredients in the organic garden for a cooking class, and even experience a taste of the local fishermen’s lifestyle.
Hyatt Regency Koh Samui is home to 140 comfortable guestrooms, including 24 spacious suites and villas, all boasting private balconies. Select rooms include access to Regency Club privileges, while seven beachfront pool villas offer the ultimate indulgence. The interior design is characterized by the use of a neutral palette with artisanal ocean-inspired décor and refreshing blue accents.
The resort features four restaurants and bars, including Yangna, an all-day dining restaurant serving Thai and international cuisine, and the open-air Sesun Grill & Beach Bar where diners can enjoy fresh seafood and Mediterranean sides alongside relaxing sea views. Located next to Yangna, Cobalt is the place to sip on fresh juice, iced tea, and coffee while Kube is an ideal spot to enjoy a Thai-inspired afternoon tea or crafted cocktails.
The family-friendly resort features five freeform pools – including a lap pool, plunge pool, family pool with a whirlpool and kids’ pool with a slide – which cascade to the beach. Over at Camp Hyatt, kids can enjoy supervised play and activities from arts and crafts to movie nights.
The resort’s spa consists of five treatment rooms, including two couple’s suites with a private deck and outdoor tub. Guests can relax and recharge with a curated menu of revitalizing treatments incorporating original Thai ingredients and wellness traditions.
For celebration and memorable gatherings, Hyatt Regency Koh Samui features indoor and outdoor venues. The elegant pillar-free Regency Ballroom can accommodate up to 100 guests for a majestic wedding banquet or 150 for cocktails and can be divided for more intimate events. A 97-sqm manicured lawn is the ideal place for wedding celebrations and alfresco events.
