Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide has opened the Sheraton Samui Resort in Thailand, and we're here with a peek behind the scenes at the hotel's design.

Sheraton Samui Resort has 141 guestrooms and suites with a blend of modern décor and light pastel colors. Each room has the signature Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Bed, a bathroom with separate shower and bathtub, Internet access, 42-inch LCD TV and a private balcony with garden or ocean views.

Upon arrival at the lobby lounge, guests are treated to 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, tennis facilities, and also two salt-water swimming pools. There is also the Glow Spa, boasting seven treatment rooms.

For dining, the property has four bars and restaurants: Coco Spice, Long Talay, Blue Monkey and the resorts’ lobby lounge bar.

For events, Sheraton Samui Resort has function and pre-function spaces totaling 1,679 square feet, including outdoor venues with panoramic ocean views.

Sheraton Samui is a conversion hotel situated on the Chaweng Noi Beach on the island of Koh Samui. The property 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 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 destination for both short and long-haul markets, is accessible from several airline hubs and is a 15-minute drive from Samui International Airport (USM). The property is also located near nightlife, shopping districts and popular attractions ranging from the Chaweng Beach to the temple of Wat Kunaram.
