Pretty in Pink: 5 Koh Samui Sunsets

Sit back and enjoy the nightly show

So, you have Koh Samui on your radar. You’ve seen the photos, you’ve heard the rave reviews, and you’re well aware that it has a few star qualities that make it the ideal destination for relaxation. After a hard day of chilling out – yoga? Private yacht? – these sunsets are just the dessert you’re looking for.

The Headland Villa

sunsetskohsamui-theheadlandvilla3--02Part of the exclusive Headland Estate Villas, this beautiful home boasts otherworldly views of the Gulf of Thailand from many vantage points, not just from this dreamy infinity edge pool. Before sunset hour rolls around, you’re well advised to divide your time between reading your book in the villa’s lush shaded courtyard, relaxing with spa treatments, and a yoga session at the nearby Marga Yoga Centre. Make it back to your deck in time for sunset, and don’t forget that glass of rosé (to match the sky, of course!)

Suralai Villa 

sunsets-kohsamui-suralai--03In Thai mythology, Suralai was the residence of the angels. Which is a fitting name for this villa, as its hilltop position gives the feeling of being high up in the sky. The 65-ft pool is complete with a swim up bar, and state-of-the-art Bose sound system ensures you can have your favorite relaxation tunes on repeat. Whether you’re most comfortable in the airy interior space, or outside taking in the magical views, we can’t think of a more heavenly spot to chase the sunset.
