From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Koh Samui now has a hotel scene to match its increasingly stylish visitors. Built on a slender plot on the northern end of Lamai Beach, Langham Place is a cleverly conceived maze of 77 suites and villas around three communal pools, with dense vegetation and gigantic boulders that offer a sense of private space. Interiors are elegant and contemporary, with Balinese wood furnishings, soft lantern lighting, and gorgeous gilded wallpaper that echoes traditional Chinese watercolors. The pool scene feels more South Beach than Samui: A DJ plays lounge music at the bar, and cult flicks play on a poolside screen. The beach all but disappears at high tide—the star attraction here is the hotel's pontoon pier, which spears 600 feet out to sea, with a seawater area at its far end. The sweet staff hand out ice water while offering to clean your sunglasses. The nighttime scene is surprisingly quiet, but this is an ideal destination for grown-up flashpackers seeking a buzz without the hangover.—2010 Hot List

Which room to book: Those in the least expensive category, Essential Place, are good value for the money; at the top end, Ocean View Pool Villa No. 1107 is the most private of the seven stunning seaside suites.
