Sterling Design, a designation of Sterling Hotels, has signed its fifth member in Asia Pacific and first in Thailand, the ShaSa Resort & Residences, Koh Samui. The resort is also Preferred Hotel Group's 19th hotel in Thailand.

The Swahili word for "blessed waters", ShaSa Resort & Residences is surrounded by water elements, beginning with a welcoming fountain at the highest point that descends through three swimming pools and ends at the sea. The resort's design pays homage to the natural surroundings, while the interior takes inspiration from local materials with a modern twist. Located at the south coast of Koh Samui, Laem Set is a peaceful haven with one of the best beaches on the island.

The resort is located on a lush sloping hillside, offering 31 suites of one to three bedrooms with sea views, plus one beachfront pool villa with a plunge pool and roof deck.

All suites feature spacious balconies furnished with lounge chairs, a dining table for private alfresco meals, and day bed for massages. A complete entertainment center with a JAMO sound system from Denmark provides in-room recreation. Guests enjoy all the conveniences of home with a washer/dryer and fully equipped kitchen that features an oven, refrigerator, stove, and a complete set of cooking utensils and appliances. Complimentary wireless Internet access is available throughout the resort.

For relaxation, there are three free-form pools, including a hydrotherapy pool and a spa, which offers a wide range of treatments with Dermalogica products. For a physical workout, there is a fitness center as well as watersports such as kayaking. A sleek restaurant and bar serves Thai and international dishes in an open-air setting overlooking landscaped gardens.

"The Sterling Design brand is perfectly suited to Thailand's home-grown boutique properties representing great style and personality with affordable luxury such as ShaSa Resort & Residences," said Mark Simmons, area managing director Asia, Preferred Hotel Group.
