Q Signature Samui Hotel, Choengmon

Located only seven kilometers from Samui Airport, the Q Signature Samui Hotel is a modern luxurious spa and hotel. The Q Signature Samui Hotel comprises of 20 elegant Thai design villas with private pools, 55 apartments and 3 communal pools.

The Samudra Retreat Samui Hotel is also part of this complex and was also known as The Peninsula. In total they host 132 rooms and villas.

The location is really nice and fairly secluded, it's build on a hill and golf carts take you around the place. There's also a nice beach in front of the resort and around the corner of this beach, in walking distance over the beach is Choengmon Bay, in my opinion the nicest bay of Samui island. This bay hosts plenty of restaurants and bars which can give a nice break to the furthermore excellent restaurants at Q signature;

The Royal Siam restaurant, the Aow Thai Terrace, The Royal Pool Bar and the Royal Mountain Pool Bar.

It's a vast complex with all necessary and required amenities and beautifully located in Choengmon Bay.

It's prices range from medium to high end. Well worthwhile checking out and a great location to enjoying your stay on Samui.

Imperial Samui Hotel, Chaweng

Imperial Samui Hotel in Chaweng

Is part of the same Imperial chain as the Imperial Boathouse in Choengmon and the Imperial Queen's Park Hotel in Bangkok. It's also once more a place where my wife used to work for a few months when the Imperial Boathouse underwent extensive renovations.

The Imperial Samui Hotel is located on Chaweng Noi Beach, about 1.5 kilometers from Chaweng's shopping and entertainment areas and 10 kilometers from the airport. The scenic Imperial Samui Hotel is built in Mediterranean-style and is set in the hillside with landscaped shadowy gardens tumbling down to a serene beach. The Imperial Samui Hotel has a total of 141 rooms including 108 newly renovated Premier Sea-Facing rooms, 13 Junior suites, 1 Duplex, 6 One Bed Room Suites, 11 Garden Terrace rooms and two Grand Duplex with two bedrooms and all guests have plenty of space along Chaweng Beach.

The prices are in the upper range but well worth it. The setting is gorgeous and the facilities are excellent.

The hotel supports a spa and also a flood lit tennis court, two restaurants, Le Jarmjuree for breakfast and dinner and Tara Restaurant as well as the Le Sandy, the beach bar.

The hotel exterior

Imperial Chaweng supports 2 pools, one near the ocean with unique seawater, pictured above and a fresh water pool.

All rooms come with a private balcony and stunning views and offer the very latest in resort luxury. All rooms are in low-rise Mediterranean style buildings. Most of them have a sea view taking full advantage of the cool breezes that waft in from the Gulf of Thailand. All rooms have en suite bathrooms, hairdryer, 220V electrical points, complimentary bathroom toiletries, personal safe, fully stocked refrigerate, mini bar, color TV and satellite reception, air-conditioning and IDD telephone.
Once more a hotel that comes highly recommended by me.
