A new luxury boutique hotel has recently opened in the trendy Bophut Beach area of Koh Samui in southern Thailand.
Hansar Samui, a 74-room beachfront property, is located on the tropical stretch of golden sands and turquoise waters of Koh Samui’s up market Bophut Bay. The resort is a short stroll down the quaint cobblestone ‘walking street’, adjacent to the vibrant Fisherman’s Village, with its antique wooden shop fronts, chic cafes and atmospheric seaside bars. Hansar Samui offers spacious accommodation with unobstructed sea views from every room, and super-size private balconies and oversize daybeds for outdoor living and entertaining. Open plan yet intimate, each room has been artfully finished with teak floors, stone bathroom fittings and local textiles to provide a sense of place. Chic custom furnishings, large flat screen TVs balance the design’s natural touches with a modern flair. Walk-in rain showers and free-standing tubs are additional highlights of the Hansar Samui room experience.
Overseeing the culinary team at Hansar Samui is Executive Chef, Stephen Jean Dion. Stephen has created an epicurean experience for resort guests where they can appreciate the authentic taste of French Mediterranean Cuisine, in addition to a Thai menu at the beachfront H Bistro Restaurant. Menu highlights include fresh Maine lobster and oysters flown from Canada, Japan, and France, complemented by a carefully handpicked list of International wines and champagnes.
Sunset cocktails and canapés are best enjoyed at the elevated Chill Lounge – overlooking the golden sands and turquoise waters of Bophut Bay. The trendy Chill Lounge showcases a carefully hand picked international wine list and innovative cocktail menu. Alternatively guests can enjoy snacks and refreshments poolside or beachside, and relax and the beach bar.
