If you’re looking for seclusion and luxury plus a pool villa, we recommend a little bay tucked away called Taling Ngam. It’s on the south-west coast of Samui and is a little piece of secluded paradise. It’s also home to the InterContinental Samui that has the most secluded and luxurious pool villas on that side of the island.
Resorts with private pools are essential when you really want to escape from everyone and everything.
In Koh Samui the coastline is sprinkled with luxury resorts with private pools. One of our favourites is the beachfront pool villa at the InterContinental Koh Samui. The resort is tucked away from the main tourist hub of Samui. It’s located on a cliffside, which means spectacular views. The private pool villas are located right on the beachfront.
The beach itself is very quiet and exclusive. It’s mainly used by the guests and a local crab catcher.
The pool villas at the Intercontinental Samui are luxurious, exclusive and set in a true idyllic location. Catch a glimpse of the pool villa 12 seconds in to the video.
Wake up every morning to sound of the ocean. Make an espresso in your room before or after your morning dip in your private pool. There’s a deck and terrace where you can enjoy breakfast. You can also head up to Amber for a full gourmet buffet breakfast with stunning elevated ocean views. You can walk up the stairs and across the suspension bridge to get there or call a buggy. Afterwards, spend the day by your pool, looking out to the ocean, catching up on emails, or reading the book you bought at the airport.
If you feel the need to get more social, there are seven other pools that you can swim in.
At the InterContinental Samui, you can swim in a different pool every day of your stay. Every pool comes with a unique view of the ocean or tropical gardens. There’s two infinity pools to explore. One hovers and floats above a coconut plantation with unbeatable views of the ocean. It’s the type of pool that you’ll spend too much time taking photos in instead of relaxing. The other infinity pool is by the sea. It’s a great place to spend the whole day in Samui.
Get access to an exclusive white sandy beach, a pool bar, a shallow pool for kids to splash in.
The other pools can be found scattered across and down the cliff face where you’ll find the residence villa collection. These pools are secret swimming spots and are quiet spots to relax in. These pools are color coded. The colors reflect the different shades of the Samui sunset, which itself is incredible. The InterContinental is also know for being one of the best spots on the island to watch the sun set, especially from Air Bar. After a day spent in your pool villa, Air Bar is the perfect way to celebrate the end of your day in paradise.
These luxurious private pool villas are perfect for romantic escapes, honeymoons and anniversaries.
You could easily spend a romantic week relaxing in the villa and never leave the resort. In addition to swimming and sunbathing by your pool, there’s lots to see and do around the resort. Water sports, master classes, local insider tours and spa treatments. The InterContinental also has a range of private and romantic dining experiences to choose from. You can organise a private in-villa bbq with your own chef for the evening.
There’s a private wharf that can be turned into a romantic dining spot under the stars that is a short stroll along the beach from your villa.
The bathrooms are also worth a mention at these luxurious and secluded pool villas. There’s a tub that can easily fit two. The vanity is beautiful. The layout is spacious and functional. This bathroom is a dream to get ready in for a dinner under the stars or a romantic sundown glass of champagne on your private terrace or at Air Bar.
