Six Senses Samui reopens following renovation

Six Senses Samui reopened after an upgrade and revitalization of guest accommodations and public areas.

The property added floor-to-ceiling glass walls in the bathrooms to allow guest views of the landscaping and trees around the property. Updated furnishings and a new layout create additional space. Bathrooms are now fully enclosed and air conditioned, though the open showers were retained. The entire villa interior and furnishings were refinished with lighter tones.

All villa pools were resurfaced with turquoise stone tiles, while pools were added to increase to 59 the villas with private pools. The resort still offers the choice of seven Hideaway Villas that have lounging decks rather than a private swimming pool.
