W Retreat Koh Samui



Angie Thien for "Where in Travel"
November 11, 2011

We've found the fountain of youth.

It's on Thailand's third largest island, among azure blue waters and coconut groves.  It's where nearly a kilometer of virgin beach is set before you, where music plays from 'singing stones', and where the ice cream is free… and limitless.

The good news is, you won't need to go on a dangerous expedition for it.  All you need is a plane ticket, and a reservation at W Retreat Koh Samui.

To put it in perspective, just take a look at the W lounge.  Arrive in the evening and you might notice holographic butterflies following your footsteps.  Arrive in the day time, and real butterflies flutter pass a magnificent sky lobby with sunken seats that disappear into the horizon.  Take a breath of sea air, sip a signature Moe-Hee-Toe®, and relax.  You're a W Insider now, and there are benefits to that title.


Your villa is your playground.  Each of the expansive units—introductory villas are 163 sqm— contain a private pool, sun deck, separate sitting room, luxurious bathroom with indoor shower, outdoor shower, and 2-person tub all stocked with Bliss Spa® amenities.  You can catch your favorite shows in the living room's 46" screen or while taking a bubbly bath.

Should you ever want to leave the privacy of your "playground", there are a number of options.  The Kitchen Table is W's all-day dining venue, serving a mix of western and Thai dishes.  If you're craving something not on the menu, just ask.  Most Thai favorites can be whipped up without hassle.  WooBar offers the best views in the resort, and is the key spot for mingling.  Come evening, lounge beachside like Romans at SIP, or for fine dining, go to Namu—a modern teppanyaki restaurant, featuring the future of Japanese cuisine.


 

Forget boring rest and relaxation, at AWAY® Spa its refuel and revitalization. Colorful, airy, and upbeat, W's Spa breaks away from tradition.  See Asia's first Thaimazcal® sauna/steam experience, indulge in unique massages, or detox like a rock star at the attached Tonic Bar.

"Whatever, Whenever"—You'll hear this often at W, a passing waitress may whisper it as she hands you your martini (stirred and not shaken, à la Somerset Maugham) or from the General Manager as he greets you at the lobby.  But when they say this at W—they mean it.  The Whatever/Whenever® service is much like having a genie at the end of a phone line.  Your wish is their command, from regular concierge services to the extreme.  If you can imagine it, they can do it—and you won't be limited to three wishes.


 

Things work differently at W Retreat Samui.  The resort speaks to you in its own voice, using everything from music and colors to the way staff members greet guests.  It's a cocktail between a city hotel and a private island, it's a story book setting where you choose your own adventure, and it's an outlet for the happy, young, and young-at-heart to do whatever they want… whenever they want it.
