Koh Samui is often accused of having lost its personality due to the growth of homogenised upscale tourism. However, Belmond Napasai proves that it is still possible to experience the island’s true identity, located as it is upon the remote shores of Baan Tai beach on Koh Samui’s northern coast. Nestled amidst seventeen acres of lush, tropical garden that opens out onto an isolated stretch of pristine sand, Belmond Napasai offers the ultimate escape from the superficiality of the island’s more developed tourist centres. A tranquil haven defined by its atmosphere of romance and seclusion, this accommodation option offers all the amenities of a five-star resort whilst simultaneously preserving the beauty and traditionalism of its unique location.
