The first luxury resort on the island of Koh Samui is set to be refurbished ahead of its new management deal.

The Baan Taling Ngam Resort and Spa has a total of 79 rooms but is set to undergo a $15 million makeover before InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) takes over its running.

Jan Smits, IHG’s managing director in Asia and Australasia, said: “Our region has many natural locations ideal for resorts and Koh Samui remains one of the most popular travel destinations in Thailand.

“The InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort supports our focus on the resort segment and is a wonderful addition to our portfolio.”

It is expected that the resort will reopen at the start of December and it could be an ideal choice for those taking flights to Thailand and it is located around 60 minutes away from the capital city of Bangkok, with transfers available from Surathani airport.
