When in 1989 was opened the airport on Thai island of Koh Samui, this hidden gem was found in the center of attention of lovers of exotic destinations.
In recent decades, the island has become the site of an incredibly large number of luxury resorts, including large hotel chains such as Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons or Belmond, offering tourists a real tropical refuge.
For those who are searching for the lush vegetation that existed on this island 30 years ago, the wonderful information comes to us – the hotel “Cape Fahn“, a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, opens a private island on the north-east coast of Koh Samui, with just 22 villas. This place promises an immeasurable sense of privacy throughout the area.
Spacious accommodation, of which the smallest is about 378m2 is scattered around the island, and your intimacy and privacy are surrounded by lush gardens. Each villa has a separate living room, as well as a sunbathing platform with a private pool.
The interior is simple but elegant, decorated with lots of natural wood and mostly white with occasional blue accentuated details.
Wooden ceilings make the rooms airy, and huge windows allow you to penetrate the natural sunlight and offer a spectacular view of the Gulf of Thailand.
There is no doubt that you will want to consume as much sun and sea air as a step away from your private villa, but the three additional salt pools on the property – one of which is intended for adults – should never be missed.
Also, you can spend some time in a spa or participate in one of many weekly activities, ranging from yoga and cinema evenings to the pool, or go on a tour of one of the nearby islands with charter sailing yachts.
Just don’t miss a walk through the narrow spruce that connects Fahn Island with Koh Samui Island during the tide, which represents a seriously good opportunity for photography, as well as access to soft sandy and crystal clear waters of the Choeng Mon beach.
When you need a break from sand and sun, there are top chefs for a culinary course.
However, for those who wish to leave the food to professionals, Hue Restaurant offers international and Thai dishes, while Crest Restaurant offers a French menu. It is the perfect place to watch the sunset while enjoying creative bites.
