From the various restaurants, the bar and the immense deck areas surrounding the horizon pool, this property is the island's best location to watch the sunset.
To describe this resort as a collection of individual bungalows would do it a great disservice. The guest houses are extraordinary examples of tropical modernism, and guests benefit from a hideaway that has used architecture and design to enhance the beauty and drama of the surroundings.
If there is such a word as a 'lost compound' then that is what has been invented at Six Senses Samui. These are vast, completely open plan, two level lofts, where one level features the swimming pool, deck and daytime reclining area, and the upper level is dedicated to sleeping, reclining and bathing.
Situated on a raised peninsular, isolated from the more mainstream tourist locations on the island, Six Senses Samui has very cleverly used its location to create an enhanced sense of privacy and privilege. The only way to get to this peninsula is to be a guest at Six Senses.
Choose between Dining on the Rocks on ten terraced decks of weathered teak and bamboo, or on the hill in casual Thai huts.
Both restaurants offer elegantly designed bars.
