Located on the Island of Samui, the latest addition to Langham’s portfolio of five-star hotels is for fun-loving, young-at-heart travellers who enjoy the finer things in life. Langham Place Samui at Lamai Beach enjoys prime position beachside and comprises a chic modern village of 77 stunning villas and suites, many featuring personal plunge pools and views over the Gulf of Thailand. The resort promises a journey of stimulating hospitality touching all the senses. Your arrival will lead you through a walkway of waterfalls after which you will be greeted by breathtaking views of the sea from the raised lobby. Here, signature scents waft on the breeze, while a DJ gently sets the mood with cool vibes. In addition to the sea view restaurant and poolside Splash Bar, the property will pioneer the concept of ubiquitous or borderless dining outside of a traditional restaurant setting. With two piers extending 150 metres out to sea which end in a secluded sala or an ocean pool, guests can happily dive into the waters to cool off or enjoy invigorating water sports. Alternatively, they can simply lie on the sala decks working on a tan while sipping their perfectly chilled daiquiris and martinis. intercontinental BangKoK unveils FresH new looK An extensive THB890 million (US$25.9 million) refurbishment program at The InterContinental Bangkok was recently completed.
