Thailand: The 140-room Hyatt Regency Koh Samui, located in North Chaweng, marks the brand’s first hotel on the island.
Three Thai design firms – Office of Bangkok Architecture, August Design and PLandscaping, collaborated on the project. It spans eight acres of private coastline in the far northeast corner of the island.
The 140 guest rooms, including 24 suites and villas, feature balconies and select rooms come with access to Regency Club privileges. There are seven beachfront villas.
Four restaurants and bars comprise the all-day dining restaurant Yangna, the open-air Sesun Grill & Beach Bar, Cobalt which serves sluices, tea and coffee, and Kube which offers cocktails.
As a family-friendly resort, younger guests can enrol at Camp Hyatt where arts, crafts and movie nights are arranged and supervised.
In the spa there is five treatments rooms, including two couple’s suites with a private deck and outdoor tub.
Indoor and outdoor venues include the Regency Ballroom, which can accommodate up to 100 guests or 150 for cocktails, as well as a 97 square-metre lawn for wedding celebrations and other events.
General manager of Hyatt Regency Koh Samui, Adrian Pulido, said: “The pandemic has been a challenging time for Koh Samui as it has been for the entire tourism industry in Thailand. That’s why we are so delighted to debut with such a special resort. This island has a central role in how Thailand fares following the pandemic, and it’s an honour to be leading the way as we begin to look positively towards the future.”
