Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts with their simple philosophy of doing normal things, but in an extraordinary manner, is set to change the management of The Passage Samui Villas & Resorts with its rebranding under their umbrella to Mövenpick Resort Laem Yai Beach Samui in November this year.
Mövenpick already has a portfolio of international resorts in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Europe. The Passage Samui Villas & Resorts will become a part of Mövenpick’s ethos of the Green Globe label, which is a non-profit organization promoting “sustainability” in the tourism field. It is a much coveted stamp for eco friendly resorts around the world.
Sitting on the beachfront on the northwest end of Koh Samui, this resort embodies romance, a surreal sense of calm and relaxation. Nestled in lush tropical surrounds, it is steeped in Thai culture, with its architecture traditional and elegantly sublime. Single one level living is complimented with the views of the sparkling blue water of the Gulf of Thailand. Evening sunsets of such an intense blazing red rival the hue of the brilliant hibiscus flowers, scattered throughout the manicured grounds. This sophisticated resort reflects the paradise that is found on Koh Samui, and blends it naturally with all the smiles of Thai hospitality.
The facilities include an Asian herbal spa offering authentic treatments, beach front dining, pool and beach butler service, two large swimming pools and a children’s pool, complimentary use of kayaks, a library and business center.
The resort offers a free shuttle bus service to the Island’s town center of Nathon for the gadabouts that may wish to leave the haven of their slice of utopia. For the truly adventurous who wish to indulge in one of the famous full moon parties that Thailand is renowned for, the staff can arrange a speedboat ride to Koh Phangan Island, home of the decadent rage where dancing on the beach watching brilliant fireworks and the moon rising over the beach is a night of Thai memories.
Reservations can currently be made under the current name of The Passage.
