Hyatt Regency Koh Samui in Thailand opens its doors as tourist activity slowly increases
July 9, 2021: With travellers beginning to pack their bags again, Hyatt Regency gets set to welcome guests at the newly opened Hyatt Regency Koh Samui in Thailand. The resort, which is Hyatt's first on Koh Samui, allows visitors to make everlasting connections and have exhilarating experiences.
“The pandemic has been a challenging time for Koh Samui as it has been for the entire tourism industry in Thailand. That’s why we are so delighted to debut with such a special resort,” said Adrian Pulido, general manager, Hyatt Regency Koh Samui.
Because of its diversity of visual elements, the resort describes itself as a "vacation gallery," employing a design-forward strategy. There's a showstopper lobby, the world's longest lobby arrival point in Koh Samui, with multiple skylights.
Other prominent features include luxury suites with amazing sea views, as well as one of the island's biggest, multiple pool zones, each cascading downwards from the resort's uppermost decks. The Gallery of Eight, a collection of eight beautiful points dispersed across the resort, is another significant dealbreaker.
There are around 140 guestrooms, including 24 spacious suites and villas with personal balconies and beautiful sights of the sea. Select rooms come with Regency Club privileges, while seven beachfront pool villas offer much more luxury. The minimalism of the interior design—created by August Design—in a neutral palette with ocean-inspired decor and blue highlights, enhances the spaces.
Yangna, an all-day dining restaurant serving Thai and foreign cuisine, and the open-air Sesun Grill & Beach Bar, where guests can savor fresh seafood and Mediterranean sides while relaxing with sea views, are among the resort's four restaurants and bars.
Camp Hyatt takes care of young guests by offering activities from arts and crafts to movie nights. Adults can at the resort’s spa, a tranquil sanctuary, featuring five treatment rooms, including two couple’s suites with a private deck and outdoor tub.
“This island has a central role in how Thailand fares following the pandemic, and it’s an honor to be leading the way as we begin to look positively towards the future,” added Mr. Pulido.
