I’m currently exploring the Four Seasons Resort situated in Koh Samui. For me, the first impression begins at the reception area where guests receive a welcome. The journey from the entrance to the reception is truly remarkable; it’s hard to put into words just how beautiful and serene it is. With 60 villas and 11 residences nestled amidst hills offering breathtaking views of the sea this resort is truly awe-inspiring. To get around such a property with inclines they provide buggies for transportation – it’s like taking an exhilarating ride, on a luxury roller coaster.
Thailand is renowned worldwide for its biodiversity making it a beloved destination, for nature enthusiasts seeking a captivating experience of wellness.
Beach, Pool and CoCoRum
Four Seasons Koh Samui has its own private secluded beach. Located on this beach is a 40-metre infinity pool and the CoCoRum pool bar. You will find an abundance of lounges where you can relax savour delicious food and drinks and take a dip in the expansive infinity pool overlooking the shoreline. The beach offers plenty of activities from kayaking, paddleboarding, e-foil surfing, and football, to playing frisbee, etc.
CoCoRum also offers Asia’s first and only Rum Vault where you can sample rums from all over the world. The nearby Pla Pla restaurant also located on the beach was closed for renovations during our stay.
Serenity Pool Villa
Set amidst gardens the Serenity Pool Villa provides an idyllic retreat with its tranquil 15 square meter infinity pool. As you meander along the pathway leading to the villa you’ll be greeted by breathtaking vistas that set the stage for a stay at this family abode spanning 103 square meters (approximately 1,108 square feet). Perched on a hillside away from the beach it offers views of the Gulf of Thailand.
The wooden deck invites relaxation with loungers for your comfort. What particularly impressed me was having a refrigerator conveniently placed on the deck along, with coffee amenities. This thoughtful addition meant I didn’t have to enter and exit this villa inspired by island living.
It’s uncommon for hotels to provide dedicated curtains that effectively shield against sunlight strong winds or even rain showers—a feature that truly enhances guests’ comfort and privacy. However, these curtains would give guests the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors while still ensuring a relaxing stay.
Embroidery Personalise Bed Linen
Adding an embroidered touch to your bed linen is a way to personalize it. During my stay, at Four Seasons Koh Samui I had my initials and a special motif embroidered on the pillows. Soon as I entered I noticed that the font used was welcoming and easy to read in both English and Thai languages.
The uniqueness of the bed linen truly made it stand out creating a sense of exclusivity. This attention to detail extended to the his and hers bathroom, where towels also featured my initials. The best part was that I could take them home, for use. Behind the bed, there was a window that allowed me to gaze into the gardens while comfortably sitting on the bed.
Window Views Of Gardens through Villa
One of the aspects of staying in a villa is being able to enjoy breathtaking views of lush gardens through its windows. As I looked out from my space I was greeted by an orchestra of colors and abundant greenery. These windows serve as gateways into a world of beauty allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the tranquility of nature.
From the beauty of blooming flowers to the sway of majestic trees in the gentle breeze every view is like a masterpiece waiting to be admired. The vibrant colors and diverse textures create a sense of awe and inner peace providing the backdrop for relaxation and deep contemplation. Whether I choose to bask in the embrace of sunlight or simply gaze at the changing scenery the window views from the villa gardens offer an enchanting experience that truly captivates me. This is what I anticipate when staying in Thailand.

Situated amidst surroundings this exceptional desk provides a tranquil and inspiring environment that fosters focus and productivity in my work. With its design, I can comfortably spend hours without any discomfort or distractions hindering my progress. The desk also offers storage space to keep all my essentials organized and conveniently within reach. Its robust construction ensures durability while its stylish and contemporary design adds a touch, to your workspace. The desk also served as the welcome area with coconuts, a fruit platter and some prepared snacks waiting for me.
When it comes to designing bathrooms adding stoneware can bring a sophisticated touch to spaces, for both men and women. Stoneware is a choice for bathroom fixtures and accessories due to its beauty and durability. At the Four Seasons, I had the pleasure of experiencing an area with intricate mosaic tiles that offered countless possibilities for incorporating stoneware into the bathroom. The bathroom felt exceptionally clean with a design that exuded a vibe and stylish elegance thanks to the stoneware elements. What’s more, stoneware is easy to clean and maintain making it a practical choice for hotel bathrooms.
Beige Oversized Stoneware Bathtub
Speaking of luxury in bathrooms the oversized beige stoneware bathtub is truly something. It perfectly complements any bathroom setting— one like at the Four Seasons overlooking a pool and offering a sea view.
This bathtub was meticulously crafted from high-quality stoneware making it visually stunning while durable. Its spacious design provides room for a soak allowing you to fully unwind after a long day. The beige colour adds warmth and sophistication, to the bathroom decor creating an inviting atmosphere that harmonizes beautifully. As I indulged in Thailand’s wellness retreats again I couldn’t appreciate how smooth the surface of this stoneware tub felt.
Toilet And Rain Shower Separate with Garden Views
When it comes to hotel stays there’s nothing, like having a separate toilet and rain shower. It’s even better when you can enjoy the views of the garden landscape while indulging in a warm cascade of water. This unique feature provides convenience. Enhances the bathing experience allowing me to fully relax without any interruptions. Just imagine entering a well-designed bathroom that caters to all your personal hygiene needs. The highlight for me was being able to open the glass door in the rain shower area and soak up the view of the garden—it was truly unforgettable. I also loved how the wooden floors extended throughout the villa including the rain shower section.
Mood And Lighting
For a luxury getaway look no further than a stay at Four Seasons Villa. They pay attention to every detail in order to create the atmosphere for their guests. Soon as I stepped into my villa I was greeted with a warm and inviting ambience thanks to carefully curated mood lighting. Personally, I prefer an intimate setting, to something vibrant and energetic—and Four Seasons Villa definitely delivered on that front.
With the advanced lighting control systems available I could easily adjust the brightness and colour temperature to match my mood and preferences. I really liked using the ceiling fan as it provided a cooling effect allowing me to save energy by turning off the air conditioner. Moreover, the villa had curtains that created darkness for sleeping, although I must admit that the captivating nighttime garden views tempted me to leave them open.
