        The Full Story:

        Seeming to rise out of the island jungle and directly facing the Gulf of Thailand, Silavadee reflects the spectacular natural beauty of Koh Samui. There is everything you need to completely unwind, but the Koh Samui nightlife in Lamai and Chaweng is just a taxi ride away.

        All of the rooms, suites, and pool villas on-site are large and impeccably decorated. All come with big bathtubs, powerful rain showers, and premium coffee machines, but each room includes its own special touches.

        The Jacuzzi rooms make for a great treat, but the private pool villas take things a step further. The Oceanfront pool villas are especially beautiful, with infinity pools that seem to stretch into the sea. The two-bedroom Duplex Ocean Villa houses four people, and is a great choice for groups of friends or two couples traveling together.

        The decor throughout the resort is both modern and timeless. Natural materials like wood and stone dominate, and large windows throughout the resort highlight the beauty of the Gulf of Thailand. The gay-friendly pool villas sit nestled among the jungle, with the restaurants and pool area all facing the ocean.

          This impeccably designed beach resort has some of the most spectacular scenery on the island and some of the most beautiful luxury villas, all while feeling laid-back and unassuming. It’s a beautiful and laid-back place, but there is no real nightlife to speak of. Chaweng, the main nightlife area of the island, is about half an hour away by taxi.

          Belmond Napasai is a picture-perfect Thai island paradise. The decor in the villas is elegant with strong traditional Thai influences. Think glossy wood paneling, warm neutral colors, and cool, pure white villas that emphasize the beauty of the natural surroundings.

          The gay-friendly resort has direct beachfront access, where you can lounge on a Balinese bed directly overlooking the ocean. There are two restaurants and a bar, all with an upmarket yet unpretentious ambiance.
