"An introduction to . . . Koh
Samui Most Popular Boutique Resort"
tiny magical oasis of tropical enchantment, Poppies Samui lies
on a pristine white sandy beach in the Gulf of Siam. Located at the
south end of renowned Chaweng beach, well away from the hustle and bustle
of the main resort area, Poppies has earned its reputation, since opening
in 1994 as Koh Samui most exclusive boutique hideaway.
A crystal clear free form swimming pool with natural
rock formations, and a sparkling Jacuzzi lie between the gardens and
Poppies restaurant is now firmly established
as the leading restaurant on the island, where you can dine under the
stars overlooking the beach or in the magnificent Ayuthaya-style teak
pavilion beside the pool.
Poppies gardens are considered by many regular guests to be
our crowning glory. There can not be many hotels in the world
where the gardening team receive as many accolades as the frontline
staff! Every time you walk through them you will discover some delightful
new flower or feature you missed the time before. To take it all in,
there is a strategically located sala (a Thai style thatched roofed
gazebo) in the heart of Poppies, overlooking the carp filled fishponds,
where you can sit and contemplate.
A few gentle steps from the pool lead you from the hotel directly
onto a white sandy beach. This is probably where you will spend
most of your days, lazing under white canvas parasols on our fully reclining
beach beds. Our attentive beach staff will happily set you up for the
day as well as provide continuous glasses of complimentary iced water
and bar and food service.
The beach itself is completely coral
and stone free so the swimming conditions and visibility (subject to
weather) are of the highest quality. Poppies Samui is owned and managed
by an established team of caring and experienced professionals from
UK, Eire, Thailand and Indonesia (Bali).
