Meliá Koh Samui in Thailand has launched a “resort within a resort” concept called The Level. That element sets apart 55 luxurious rooms and suites, as well as a private lounge and a raft of privileges.
Overlooking Choeng Mon Beach on the north-eastern tip of Koh Samui island in the Gulf of Thailand, Meliá Koh Samui’s 24 ‘The Level Pool Access Rooms’ have private terraces that link to a lagoon pool through the resort’s lush grounds.
Thirty elegant two-story ‘The Level Boat Suites’ are made from meticulously refurbished merchant vessels that are more than 100 years old. Six of the boat suites afford vistas of the resort’s two-level infinity pool, with sunken seating areas and in-water lounges, and Choeng Mon Beach beyond. A further seven boat suites offer direct access to the lagoon pool.
Situated on its own exclusive floor for privacy, The Presidential Suite features a vast living area, 10-seat dining table and private balcony overlooking the lagoon pool, and also belongs to ‘The Level’.
The Level offers an upgraded level of service and benefits, including access to an executive lounge shaped like a boat’s hull with all-day snacks and beverages. The Level Lounge boasts a vast open terrace surrounded by a water feature, with panoramic views of Choeng Mon Beach.
A host of The Level privileges includes complimentary afternoon tea and complimentary cocktails and canapes at The Level Lounge from 2:30-4:30pm and 5:30-7:30pm respectively. During the latter, guests also have the opportunity to learn how to make cocktails at the lounge’s cocktail counter.
Other perks include private check-in and check-out at The Level Lounge and preferential reservations in the resort’s restaurants and bars by the concierge.
The Level guests have access to all of Meliá Koh Samui’s facilities, including two restaurants, a swim-up bar, fitness centre, ballroom and, for families, a kid’s club, outdoor playground and mini water park.
