|Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. today announced the opening of Sheraton Samui Resort, underscoring the brand's expansion in Thailand and building upon 2014's global growth momentum. Owned by TCC Hotels Group, a member of the TCC Land Group, Sheraton Samui is a conversion hotel that features 141-rooms situated on the beautiful Chaweng Noi Beach on the island of Koh Samui.|
"The opening of Sheraton Samui Resort is set to solidify our presence in Koh Samui, Thailand's second largest island," said Lothar Pehl, Senior Vice President, Operations and Global Initiatives, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Asia Pacific. "As a global icon, the Sheraton brand is well-poised to meet the demands for contemporary upper-upscale accommodations, and we are confident that the brand will continue to resonate with travellers given its successes across the Thai Kingdom."
Sheraton Samui Resort is the newest addition to the area, joining three existing Starwood hotels in Koh Samui while also building upon the current Sheraton portfolio of five dynamic Thai-based properties---Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers, Sheraton Hua Hin Resort & Spa, Sheraton Hua Hin Pranburi Villas, Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort, and Sheraton Pattaya Resort.
Koh Samui, a popular destination for both short and long-haul markets, is easily accessible from several major airline hubs and is a quick fifteen minute drive from Samui International Airport (USM). The property is also conveniently located near excellent nightlife, fashionable shopping districts and popular attractions ranging from the pristine Chaweng Beach to the temple of Wat Kunaram. Adventure seekers can take boat trips to the nearby Angthong National Park and islands of Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan for world class diving and snorkelling.
Sheraton Samui Resort boasts 141 well-appointed guest rooms and suites with a stylish blend of modern decor and light pastel colors. Each room features the signature Sheraton Sweet Sleeper(tm) Bed, a bathroom with separate shower and bathtub, high speed Internet access, 42" LCD TV and a private balcony with garden or ocean views.
Upon arrival at the lobby lounge, guests are treated to breathtaking panoramic ocean views through a glass-encased balcony, alongside a lighthouse inspired water feature as part of the "oceanic wave" design concept of the resort. On-site recreational facilities include 24-hour access to Sheraton Fitness(r), tennis facilities, and also two salt-water swimming pools. Guests can also pamper themselves at the Glow Spa with seven treatment rooms, offering a range of signature massage and wellness treatments.
Guests will be spoilt for food and beverage choices at the resort's four bars and restaurants. Coco Spice serves a sumptuous buffet breakfast spread in a contemporary dining experience; and in the evening it serves a menu featuring a fusion of eastern and western cuisines. Long Talay is an all-day beachfront dining restaurant with an open kitchen concept, allowing guests front row views as boldly flavored Thai and seafood dishes are prepared. Blue Monkey, with its distinctive wave-inspired bamboo roofing, is an open air beach club style bar that offers another social venue for guests on a stunning beach front location. In addition, guests can also visit the resorts' lobby lounge bar for bite-sized international and Pan-Asian snacks.
