Our stay at Outrigger Koh Samui

Let me show you our experiences at Outrigger Koh Samui. We stayed there for four nights in August 2017 but I wish we had had more time to enjoy this beautiful beach resort!

There are multiple reasons why this resort has convinced us that it is truly the most romantic hotel in Koh Samui.

This article will provide you with a detailed overview of why Outrigger Koh Samui is the best choice for your romantic getaway to Thailand.

In order to get an additional visual impression, feel free to watch our video:

Our private Pool Villa

We stayed at the most luxurious room category, the 1-bedroom- pool villa that can be occupied by up to four persons.

The villa is very spacious (100 square meters) and includes a stunning 8-meter-pool that is provided for your private use. It comes with a large terrace and a private sunbed, umbrella and chairs.

Inside the villa you experience all the comfort of a 5-star-resort, including a highly comfortable king bed, a huge bathroom with rain shower, an amazing bathtub, high performance air conditioning and so much more! See for yourself:

Inside the Pool Villa:

Look how much space you have!

I also loved the soothing atmosphere with wooden details and relaxing colors.

Outside the Pool Villa:

The locations of the villas ensure that you have lots of private space!

This pool is so relaxing with all the beautiful plants around it..

The view from inside the pool

We absolutely loved this pool villa and found it to be the ultimate relaxing experience! No other hotel in Thailand has given us so much private space completely hidden away from eyes of other guests. The pool and the interior of the Pool Villa were very clean and provided high comfort.

The Outrigger pool area

Outside your private suite or villa you will find a luxurious resort space the provides you with everything you could possibly ask for.

What we loved most besides our Pool Villa was the shared pool area with different basins and a breathtaking ocean view!

Garden pool area – So relaxing!

Does it get any greener? I loved all the plants…

So peaceful and serene..

Look at this ocean view! Does it get any better?

This view was incredibly beautiful…

The beach at Outrigger Koh Samui

The pool area at Outrigger Beach Resort is amazing but it’s called Beach (!) Resort for a very good reason. If you get tired of relaxing by the pool you can go swimming or simply choose one of the comfortable chairs that are set up by the beach.

In case you feel more like going on an adventure, Outrigger Koh Samui has an amazing complimentary kayaking and paddleboard service. I can definitely recommend the kayaking experience since you’ll get to see much more of the beautiful sea.

Relax by the ocean on the comfortable chairs

Or go kayaking if you feel more adventurous!

The breakfast

In order to start your day right you should not miss the incredibly delicious breakfast at Outrigger Koh Samui. Besides the amazing buffet, you have also complimentary a-la-carte options like different egg dishes, French toast, waffles and many more.

Find lots of fresh fruit and pastries in the buffet

Complimentary a-la-carte options like Eggs Benedicte or French toast are so delicious!

Lunch at Outrigger Koh Samui

For lunch there is a variety of amazing options! You could go for one of their amazingly fresh and healthy smoothies, the mouth-watering pizza from the stone oven or a variety of different Thai dishes – It’s all there for you!

Oh, and have I mentioned the breathtaking lunch location yet? There’s no better place to enjoy delicious food than by the beach. Can’t beat this!

Is there a better place to enjoy lunch together?

We can totally recommend the healthy and fresh smoothies!

The traditional Thai dishes and the truffle pizzas were also amazing!

Dinner options at Outrigger Koh Samui

The dinner options at Outrigger are as diverse as the lunch options! A romantic dinner by the beach was our favorite option. Just look at this beautiful and utterly romantic scenery:

Enjoy the most romantic dinner location by the beach

What we really loved about this location is the old tree in the middle! At breakfast and lunch it provides shade for you and at dinner you enjoy the beautiful lamps that create a romantic atmosphere. Instead of cutting down the tree, Outrigger has used it to create something natural and unique! We loved this!

Outrigger’s menu provides a huge choice of different dishes and delicious signature cocktails that are to die for!

However, our favorite dinner was the original Thai buffet on Thursday. We can definitely recommend trying it! You will find plenty of different foods that are freshly prepared. You will also be able to indulge in fantastic desserts!

The desserts were amazing, we couldn’t get enough!

What a romantic evening!

Cocktails at Outrigger Koh Samui

Outrigger offers a huge choice of traditional and signature cocktails for lunch and dinner. Furthermore I can definitely recommend WetBar to enjoy a fresh cocktail by the beach or pool!

Enjoy refreshing drinks by the beach

Or try fruity cocktails while relaxing in the pool 🙂

The Spa

What’s an activity not to miss while on a romantic getaway? Right, a partner spa treatment!

Our spa treatment at Outrigger Koh Samui was a 3-hour-experience that left us feeling so relaxed that even my partner vowed to visit spas more often from now on :).

You’re welcomed with a delicious tea

One part of our treatment was a relaxing bath

How wonderful that was with all the flowers!

Our treatment consisted of a foot bath, a relaxing flower bath, massages and facials. The staff at the spa was so friendly and sweet that we truly felt like we’re in heaven. What a great experience!

Our conclusion

The luxury and comfort of staying at Outrigger Koh Samui has absolutely convinced us!

We enjoyed the most romantic and relaxing getaway we could have imagined and definitely can’t wait to visit more Outrigger resorts all around the world.

    This hotel is so dreamy! The villas are spacious, modern and very chic! You couldn’t tell that there’s 52 villas on site with the beach being so secluded! Food looks delicious too and breakfast with a view! Wow …my kind of place. I might have to book here if I make a return trip to Koh Samui.

    I always want to visit Thailand and I’m gonna consider this villas as an accommodation option! Everything looks so great, I’m starving now with all the delicious food you’ve tried!

  26. Mario sagt:

    Seems cool, especially having a remote beach for oneself (private one, I guess?). Usually I just tend to book a homestay in Asian countries & spend the saved money on activities. But as for the last few days I like to spoil myself a bit – this here might be a place I’d visit for the end of my trip… 🙂

  27. Jay sagt:

    This places looks absolutely amazing! Almost don’t even need to check out the beaches…

  28. Anna sagt:

    Looks like you really enjoyed your stay! I love the video you created of the hotel and the beach and pool, really makes me wanna stay there too! I fell in love with the bathtub and the rain shower. Thanks for sharing I’ll check that place out when I go again to Thailand!

  29. Jas sagt:

    Thailand has been on my bucket list for so long and this seriously just makes me wanna book a flight over. Their pool and food look absolutely phenomenal. Seems like I just need to find a significant other so I can have an excuse to stay here hahaa.

  30. You cover so many beautiful destinations on your blog! I love it. This hotel looks like a perfect honeymoon place. So pretty, and the beach is so pristine and the garden area so nice. I want to stay there next time when I’m in Thailand!

  31. Sveva sagt:

    Loved the video! It gave me a better layout of the hotel. The place looks amazing like paradise. I haven’t been to Thailand since I was a little kid..I want to go back because obviously now it’d be a completely different experience. It’s on my bucket list 🙂 http://www.svadore.com

  32. Renata Green sagt:

    Although I prefer Northern Thailand since it has a richer culture and more of a Thai feel to it, I definitely would love to stay at this villa. Your own pool – wow! But as a matter of fact I couldn’t use it since I’d stay the entire day in that incredible bathroom – that’s really too good to be true.

  33. Priyanka sagt:

    This is so so helpful! Last time I visited only Koh Tao and missed Samui but now I have to go back! Thanks again!

  35. Taylor sagt:

    Wow! This sounds like an amazing place to stay. Thank you for sharing your experience!

  36. Shaily sagt:

  38. Tracey sagt:

    This looks like an incredible place to stay. Love the plunge pool!

  39. Cassie sagt:

    I thought I was sold at the pool pictures and then I saw the buffet. Wow. Slightly different from my experience on the island twenty years ago!

  40. Lisa sagt:

    Oh wow I’m totally sold on this resort! You’re right about the bedroom and bathroom, they’re both so spacious, and I’m not jealous at all about the private pool! Your dinner choices look wonderful, and I’m so hungry writing this, and I’ve just had dinner.

  41. Carol Colborn sagt:

    We will stay at an Outrigger in Hawaii next Christmas. Judging by your description and pictures of Outrigger Koh Samui, I can’t wait!

  42. Alouise sagt:

    Being single I can’t say I’m looking for a romantic getaway, but I’m pretty sure I’d be okay staying in the private pool villa here. The fact you have you’re own private pool, plus the shared pool, and beach access is fantastic. And the spa treatment sounds wonderful. Perfect place for a splurge.

  43. Diana sagt:

    Ahh this place looks like heaven! I love that you get your own secluded private pool with your hotel room. I didn’t get a chance to visit the islands last time I was in Thailand so I would love to visit Koh Samui and stay here when I go back!

  44. It’s romantic indeed. I loved the Pool villa for the luxury and privacy that it offers. I really loved the location for the meals. The lamps and trees must have made it very atmospheric and a unique experience.

  45. Samah sagt:

    Well I don’t have a significant other at the moment, but I’d go for a private resort any chance I get. The Outrigger Koh Samui looks heavenly, with all space and greenery and the food looks so fresh and delicious! I would love to stay here when I go to Thailand.

  46. Wow, this looks so much fun. I would love to go here with my husband. The private pool, sunbed, the view from the room, the privacy, lavish breakfast, the beach, everything makes it a perfect getaway for sure. Thanks for sharing.
