Ritz-Carlton Opens Luxury Resort on Koh Samui, Thailand

Ritz-Carlton, one of the world's most highly respected luxury hotel companies, has opened a hotel on the popular tourist destination of Koh Samui in southern Thailand.

 The Ritz-Carlton, Koh Samui features 175 suites and pool villas nestled amid 58 acres overlooking the Gulf of Thailand.

 Built on the site of a former coconut plantation, the resort pays homage to its past through the extensive use of coconut and other natural materials such as ceramics.

 The resort also features seven F&B outlets, a Muay Thai gym, and a very special Swim Reef with over 50 species of fish. It is the largest of its kind in Southeast Asia, and offers unique snorkeling and fish-feeding experiences. The Swim Reef also features expansive facilities including two white sand beaches, a beach-side resort pool, a water sports center and two floodlit tennis courts.
