This once former coconut plantation has been transformed into an exquisite resort but plays homage to its past with suites and pool villas set beneath the swaying coconut palms and the use of local, natural materials throughout. An infinity-edge pool is set perfectly on the beachfront and, for those who enjoy the freedom of swimming in the sea, the Ritz Carlton boasts the only ocean swimming pool in Thailand and there’s also a swim reef where you can swim alongside more than fifty species of marine life. A truly sumptuous array of dining options reflect the clean, chilli-heat of the southern cuisine, vibrant food markets, and huge bounty of local produce all while taking you on a gastronomical journey for the senses. Spend lazy days on the two white sand beaches, kayaking across the calm sea, stand up paddle boarding or snorkelling though the clear waters and vivid marine life. Younger visitors are equally well catered for with a fabulous programme of activities designed especially for children. The sun-kissed location of the Ritz Carlton brings a wealth of tropical experiences close to hand, making this the perfect resort from which to enjoy a blissful stay on the island of Koh Samui.

Lying beneath the gently swaying fronds of the coconut palms, the suites and villas have been designed to reflect the local architecture and offer beautiful havens in which to relax and unwind. Suites offer contemporary style, with a cool colour scheme and an abundance of space with separate living areas and a generous, furnished terrace overlooking the resort or the Gulf of Thailand. The villas are beautiful in their simplicity, with an elegant yet modern Thai design. Stone bathrooms feature indoor and outdoor showers, and on the beautiful terrace an outside dining area and a private pool.



The array of dining options is designed to entice, tantalise, and indulge. Shook! is the perfect place to ease into the day, seduced by the fragrance of freshly baked pastries or traditional Thai delicacies. Daytime dining takes place in pool and beachside Sea Salt, where Thai favourites and international dishes sit side by side, and Tides hits the spot for a cooling poolside drink. Baan Talat brings the atmosphere of Thai street market to the Ritz Carlton each week, where street food and handcrafted gifts are the order of the day. For exceptional southern Thai dishes head to Pak Tai, where the private alcoves make for an intimate dining experience. As night falls One Rai offers a magical spot for pre-dinner cocktails.



Under the warmth of the Koh Samui sun enjoy a wealth of activities. Relax by the beachfront pool, swim amongst the waves in the ocean pool (seasonal and weather conditions permitting) or explore beneath the waves with a snorkel in the swim reef. Beach lovers are spoilt for choice with two beautiful white sand beaches where you can just lie back and do absolutely nothing at all. The more active can cone their martial art skills with a lesson in the Muay Thai ring, or head to the tennis, basketball, or volleyball courts and if you fancy exploring Chaweng, there’s a complimentary shuttle service for guests too.


Spa Village Koh Samui focuses on age-old, traditional healing practices local to the region and has created a spa programme which is respectful of the Thai culture to offer both holistic and rejuvenating treatments. Traditional practices use coconut, herbs, water therapy and flowers to restore and rebalance mind, body, and soul. In additional to a Muay Thai training ring the fitness centre is equipped with a full range of cardio and weight training equipment.



Ritz Kids offers a unique take on the traditional children’s club with a programme of activities that use water, land, environment, and culture as their inspiration. A child’s imagination knows no bounds and using this innate curiosity the range of activities includes the natural wonders with swimming and snorkelling in the swim reef, plus introductions to Thai food and art.
