TTG Asia weekly roundup of new hotel openings and announcements
Hyatt Regency Koh Samui, Thailand
The result of a collaboration between three of Thailand’s biggest names in hotel design – Office of Bangkok Architecture, August Design and PLandscaping, the 140-room Hyatt Regency Koh Samui sits on a private coastline in the far northeast of Koh Samui.
The hotel advertises itself as a “vacation gallery” because of its array of visual highlights. These include a lobby, the longest lobby arrival point on Koh Samui, where numerous skylights allow natural light from the sun and moon. Other notable features include lavish accommodation with ocean views and one of the island’s largest pool areas, with pools cascading from the main pool on the resort’s upper deck.
Guests have access to four F&B outlets, a tranquil spa with five treatment rooms, Camp Hyatt for entertaining young guests, as well as indoor and outdoor venues for gatherings.
This is Hyatt’s first step into Thailand’s leisure island.
