Six Senses Samui reopens on July 1 with refreshed interiors

SAMUI, Thailand – June 18, 2015 (Six Senses media release) – After an extensive upgrade and revitalization of guest accommodations and public areas, Six Senses Samui reopens with refreshed interiors on July 1, 2015.

The addition of floor to ceiling glass walls in the bathrooms make the accommodations feel brighter, airy and more spacious as though the guest is ensconced in an open-view cube yet secluded by lush landscaping and trees. Updated furnishings and a new layout create additional space, allowing guests to enjoy their in-villa experience to the fullest.

Bathrooms are fully enclosed and air conditioned for added comfort while the popular open showers have been retained. The entire villa interior and furnishings have been refinished with lighter tones conveying a more modern feel.

All villa pools have been resurfaced with turquoise stone tiles, while an additional seven pools have been added to make a grand total 59 villas with private pools plus the main infinity pool. The resort still offers the choice of seven Hideaway Villas that feature spacious entertaining and lounging decks rather than a private swimming pool.

Completed in time to welcome guests to Samui’s high season, the all-day venue Dining on the Hill and the adjacent  infinity pool have also undergone an upgrade, with new landscaping, new decking and refreshed furniture. There’s a new display buffet counter, plus a hot show kitchen. The resort’s signature restaurant Dining on the Rocks also introduces a new lounge deck.

The Library now has an expanded range of reading material along with games tables and suspended relaxation nets. The lobby has also undergone an uplifting refreshment.

General Manager Gary Henden said, “The revitalized product and enhanced services lift our resort to new heights on the island and entire region. Our designers have succeeded in delivering a lighter, brighter and more spacious feel with improved functionality to give our guests an enhanced stay. ”

Six Senses Samui opened in 2004.
