The Outrigger Koh Samui Beach Resort has officially opened, welcoming a group from Germany as its first guests. The fully renovated resort includes 44 premium category rooms, with an additional 102 superior rooms to open in November 2022.
Guests checking in from 1 August 2022 can indulge in the resort’s main lifestyle features, which are perfect for families, including the beachfront Edgewater beach club with three pool zones and a kids’ water slide. Other facilities include Outrigger’s signature Voyager 47 Club Lounge, the Coral Kids Club and game room, a fully-equipped fitness centre and refreshed main lobby area.
Premium category rooms comprise 12 Club Garden rooms (614 square feet), 12 Lamai Garden Suites (753 square feet) and 20 Premier Lamai Garden Suites (861 square feet).
Depending on the category, premium rooms showcase spacious living areas separate from the rest of the room, a four-poster bed, relaxing tropical decor and a sumptuous marble bathroom with a separate shower and bathtub.
All guests in premium rooms have exclusive access to Voyager 47 Club Lounge, which serves non-alcoholic drinks, afternoon snacks and the Chef’s tasting plate accompanied with evening cocktails.
Every room in the resort features either a balcony, French-style balcony or terrace with a contemporary design accented by soft-colonial details.
“We are really excited by the whole Edgewater family beach club concept, which is the first of its kind in this part of the island,” said the resort’s general manager, Leah Matters. “With the Voyager 47 Club and a colonial beach house feel throughout the property, Outrigger has created a truly memorable and unique beach holiday experience,” she said.
The resort was taken over by Outrigger in 2021 and redesigned by Bangkok-based architectural firm and longstanding Outrigger design partner, Santhaya + Associates.
In November, the remaining 102 superior rooms, an all-day dining restaurant and a fourth swimming pool are slated to open. Each superior room will feature French doors opening onto a private balcony overlooking the resort gardens or swimming pool.
With the goal of becoming the “Premier Beach Resort Company in the World,” Outrigger has opened four properties in Asia in the last six months: the Outrigger Koh Samui Beach Resort, the Outrigger Khao Lak Beach Resort, the Outrigger Surin Beach Resort in Phuket and the Outrigger Maldives Maafushivaru Resort.
