There are 74 rooms with private balconies, all of them with uncluttered oceanfront views, now accepting reservations at the Hansar Samui
resort in trendy Bophut Bay, on the island of Koh Samui, Thailand. The open-plan accommodations are furnished with local-flavor teak floors, stone bathroom fittings and local textiles, walk-in rain showers and free-standing tubs, and also come equipped with flat-screen televisions.
Culinary options come in the form of canapés and wine and champagne at Chill, the lounge, or Thai specialties at H Bistro served alongside French Mediterranean fare, Maine lobster, and oysters from Canada, Japan, and France. If you're a light eater we're sure that snacks and cocktails taken on a chaise between the ocean and the 30-meter, infinity-edge saltwater pool will be quite enough.
And if you must know, then yes, the Luxsa spa and its complete range of treatments will attend to any other need you might have. More traditional sweats can be worked up in the fitness center, more traditional relaxation can be had in the 24-hour lobby library and its free Internet access. The resort team will also be happy to arrange golf, yachting, diving, and sightseeing excursions if you're still trying to figure out how to relax by the beach. Rooms start at $197, which includes transfers to and from the airport. Bliss will be no extra charge...
