Hotel Buzz: Conrad Opens on Thailand's Koh Samui

Thailand's Koh Samui continues to raise the bar on luxury. The uber-chic island in the Gulf of Thailand has just welcomed the five-star Conrad Koh Samui.

The resort features 80 freestanding villas with private plunge pools and sundecks, including 64 one-bedroom villas, 14 two-bedroom villas and a Royal Villa, which sits on 25 acres of tropical features. Cool touch: All the villas are west-facing, so guests will have the opportunity to capture sunsets at night.

We love the villa interiors (think tropical hardwood floors and Thai silks). The rooms also feature LCD flat-screen televisions, CD/DVD players, iPod docking stations and wireless internet. Marble bathrooms are outfitted with oversized tubs and glass-walled rain showers.

Time to dine: Guests can partake in private in-cellar dining at The Cellar, Thai-influenced dining at the specialty restaurant, Jahn, or Mediterranean-inspired cuisine at the all-day venue, Zest. For something dimly lit and sexy, we recommend cocktails at Glow/Lounge.

Other resort features include an onsite spa, a sailing center, floating pier, 24-hour fitness center and outdoor yoga pavilion.
