Exclusively for adults, The Coast Resort Koh Phangan offers a relaxing island escape and a popular choice for honeymoons and romantic holidays because of its over-16s-only policy.
The 78-room Coast Resort is located just outside Haad Rin village, with three beaches within walking distance and sunset views.
The Coast Resort has been followed by sister property, Sensimar Resort & Spa Koh Samui, which opened in late 2016. Sitting on a 120-metre reserved stretch of Maenam Beach, regarded as the best and cleanest beach on Koh Samui, the resort has 125 luxury rooms and villas with sea views over the Gulf of Thailand. Some have private pools or outdoor spa baths. Lead-in rates start at 6000 THB.
The resort’s “Just the Two of Us” concept is ideal for romance, and facilities include a 40-metre infinity pool with swim-up bar, beachfront restaurant and indoor lounge bar. Sensimar also has its own spa and wellness centre, Zense Spa, which offers a full range of pampering, including a couples package.
A shuttle service is available from Samui International Airport, just 10 kilometres away, and there is a daily shuttle service to the fishmermen’s village and the main city Chaweng. Private taxi services, rental cars or scooters can also be booked at reception.
Both resorts offer minimalist décor – a contrast to the lush tropical landscapes outside – and full resort facilities, including gym, daily yoga classes and kayaks. Lead-in rates start at 6000 THB.
