Conrad Koh Samui Resorts & Spa in Gulf of Thailand
Design: ecoi.id Architects
Location: Gulf of Thailand
Sited at the steepest portion of the site with uninterrupted view of the Gulf of Thailand, Conrad Koh Samui Resorts & Spa is a destination in itself, where spectacular views and relaxed ambience lie yonder.
One approaches the Spa from a high point and descends towards its main building. Walking on a path flanked by a magnificent sea view on one’s right and lush green slopes on the left, the Spa reveals itself as a sculptural form on the edge. A curved wall of timber shingles stands two and a half storeys tall, embracing and shielding the spa against the slope, opening the other side of the building to the allure of the vast sea view with full height glass enclosures.
Located at the rocky zone of the resort site, entrance to the Spa includes an exposure of the rocky wall on the site, in a harmonious juxtaposition with the feature wall of timber shingles. A series of mono-pitched shingled roofs fan out, following the curved building and creating an interesting visual impact when viewed from the higher elevations of the resort.
The two-storey Spa houses one VIP treatment suite, two twin suites, five single suites and two Thai suites. The entrance is on the upper level that includes a reception, juice lounge and library. Located above the upper level is an expansive roof terrace for yoga and pilates to an amazing sea view.
