The Lobby

"Let the sea set you free" - The excitement starts as soon as you arrive at our lobby which frames the sweeping views of towering trees, terraced swimming pools and the rocky northeast coastline of this magical island. Similar to the Lamai Viewpoint, our lobby presents you with curated glimpses of nature’s majesty and draws you to the captivating sight of slender palm trees against the boundless ocean.

The Reservoir

"Breathe deep at the pool with a view" - The best views of our manicured, lush resort can be had from a series of cubes set into the elevated section of our terraced swimming pools. If you have a panoramic facility on your camera, now’s the time to use it to take in the gardens, the beach and the rocky headland. If you happen to go to the top level of Namuang Waterfall, Samui’s highest cascade, you’ll find a private little rock pool that has a comparable stunning vista, looking down over the island’s luxuriant greenery. Both places are ideal spots to take a deep breath and admire the beauty of nature.

The Waterfall

"Tap into the soothing sound of water" - The sight of water falling can be mesmerizing, yet so can its sound as it splishes and splashes, burbles and gurgles down a rock face. Our terraced swimming pools, shaded by tall trees, bring to mind the multiple levels of Namuang Waterfall, which is named for the striking purple shade of its rock faces. Namuang Falls are at their best from September to November, while at any time of year you can float on your back in one of our pools, close your eyes and be soothed by the babbling and tinkling sound of water.

The Tree Marker

"Sense the energy of trees" - A major goal in the design of our resort was to embrace and protect nature in all its forms, especially the huge trees, some of which you’ll see are protruding out of buildings. The oldest and largest of these trees are called Yang Na, which traditionally were once used by fishermen to guide them back home as they could be seen from far away. Through the years these Yang Na have witnessed historical events, and now the birth of the Hyatt Regency Koh Samui resort. Thai people often adorn them with colourful ribbons or flowers as they believe that performing this act of reverence protects the trees against harm.

The Fishnet & SESUN

"Taste the fresh catch of the day" - The two main occupations on Samui Island are fishing and harvesting coconuts, and the Gulf of Thailand has provided the islanders with a fantastic variety of fish for as long as anyone can remember. In honor of the fishermen’s most important piece of equipment—their nets—we have hung a blue fishnet on the roof of Sesun Grill & Beach Bar. The rustic lifestyle of fishermen can be experienced in places like Fisherman’s Village at Bophut, where locals and tourists mingle against an idyllic background of beach and azure sea. As at Bophut, guests at Sesun can enjoy great food and drinks as they relax and party on the beach.

The Colors of Valley

"Stroll through the valley" - Do you know that feeling when you’re strolling along a country path with raised banks on each side, snuggled and shielded by nature? That feeling awaits you in the Valley, where you will be surrounded by an abundance of tropical flora and fauna. A variety of plants flower in different seasons, creating a constantly changing ambiance in the Valley which is ideal for a leisurely walk and exercise. Since Samui lies near the equator, its climate is mostly warm and on rare occasions cool, making it an ideal year-round destination for visitors.

The Wellness Courtyard

"Bask in wellness" - Due to its remote offshore location in the Gulf of Thailand, Samui Island has always provided a safe haven for its inhabitants. Similarly, our spa offers visitors a tranquil haven where all stress and tension will melt away. A dramatic staircase leads down to the Wellness Center from the lobby into the living green courtyard. Natural light streams down from above and plants on the walls encircle you. Take a few moments to soak up the peace and quiet before entering our spa where you will be pampered by an array of rejuvenating treatments.

The Organic Garden

"Tune into nature" - Don’t miss a visit to our organic garden to see how we grow our own produce using compost to create natural fertilizers that also deter pests. You are welcome to join us in transplanting some seedlings or helping our gardener in other ways. If you take a cooking class at our resort, this is the place to come to harvest fresh ingredients before heading to the kitchen. Since time immemorial, local people have tended the fertile soil of Samui, and we are doing our best to join them in creating a clean, chemical-free environment for our plants and our guests.
