Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, is set to open a new boutique property in Koh Samui, Thailand. Scheduled to open in December 2014, Mövenpick Resort Laem Yai Beach Samui boasts 50 intimate rooms, a beachfront restaurant serving international cuisine with sunset views, three outdoor pools and an Asian herbal spa.

Located on the northwest coast of Koh Samui, just steps from the exclusive and almost untouched Laem Yai beach, this pristine stretch of sand is known as the island’s best sunset beach. With crystal clear water and a gently sloping beach, the resort overlooks the beautiful tropical islands of Angthong National Marine Park.

The resort is situated 30 minutes from Samui International Airport and airport transfers are available.

The hotel is the third property in Thailand, alongside the Bangtao and Karon Beach hotels in Phuket, to be managed by the upscale international hospitality company. Out of the over 25 new properties due to open worldwide, 15 are scheduled to open in Asia including locations such as the Philippines, India, China, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Singapore..
