Legendary Samui hotel reopens

17 Sep 2012

A complete makeover of a celebrated Samui hotel resort has finished and it is now open for business again. The former Baan Taling Ngam Resort closed 10 months ago and has been refurbished and rebranded as the InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort.

When it opened 19 years ago, the Baan Taling Ngam was the first luxury resort on an island primarily noted for its wide variety of backpacker accommodation. Its location on the western shores of the island is still the same pristine setting it was when the first pioneer well-heeled travellers arrived.

The resort’s elevated cliffside spot provides guests with panoramic vistas across the sparkling blue seas of the Gulf of Thailand to Angthong National Marine Park. Former resort guests claim the sunset views here are the best they have ever witnessed.  

Baan Taling Ngam is set in its own private 22-acre grounds and has only 79 residences. All the contemporary rooms, suites and villas boast their own balconies, cascading showers and unique Thai décor. The beachside villas feature private pools and sun-decks.

Guest amenities include the cocktail and tapas Air Bar; two restaurants, Flames and Amber; and the Baan Thai Spa. The spa provides guests with a range of Thai and Ayurvedic wellness treatments, facials and massages.

Guests at the Baan Taling Ngam are able to gain interesting glimpses into Samui’s draws and Thai culture with the ‘In the Know’ educational programme. The 1Stop Samui hospitality page has a link to a reputable hotel reservation website.
