"An introduction to . . . Koh Samui Most Popular Boutique Resort"
A tiny magical oasis of tropical enchantment,
Poppies Samui lies on a pristine white sandy beach in the Gulf of Siam.
Located at the south end of renowned Chaweng beach, well away from the hustle and bustle of the main resort area,
Poppies has earned its reputation, since opening in 1994 as Koh Samui most exclusive boutique hideaway.
A crystal clear free form swimming pool with natural rock formations,
and a sparkling Jacuzzi lie between the gardens and the sea.
Poppies restaurant is now firmly established as the leading restaurant on the island,
where you can dine under the stars overlooking the beach or in the magnificent Ayuthaya-style teak pavilion beside the pool.
Poppies gardens are considered by many regular guests to be our crowning glory.
There can not be many hotels in the world where the gardening team receive as many accolades
as the frontline staff! Every time you walk through them you will discover some delightful new flower
or feature you missed the time before. To take it all in, there is a strategically located sala
(a Thai style thatched roofed gazebo) in the heart of Poppies,
overlooking the carp filled fishponds, where you can sit and contemplate.
A few gentle steps from the pool lead you from the hotel directly onto a white sandy beach.
This is probably where you will spend most of your days, lazing under white canvas parasols on our fully reclining beach beds.
Our attentive beach staff will happily set you up for the day as well as
provide continuous glasses of complimentary iced water and bar and food service.
The beach itself is completely coral and stone free so the swimming conditions
and visibility (subject to weather) are of the highest quality.
Poppies Samui is owned and managed by an established team of caring
and experienced professionals from UK, Eire, Thailand and Indonesia (Bali).
Getting to Koh Samui has never been easier or quicker thanks to Bangkok Airways,
who exclusively operate frequent daily flights from and to Bangkok (domestic terminal Don Muang Airport),
Singapore, Hua Hin, Phuket and Krabi with a fleet of state-of-the-art Boeing 717 and ATR aircraft.
Koh Samui airport is regarded as one of the most uniquely charming airports in the world.
Poppies cottages combine the very best of Thai style with western comforts and amenities.
The carved roof panels, floors, doors and windows are of solid teak and the fabrics are of finest Thai cotton and silk.
Poppies underwent a major refurbishment in late 2006 including brand new and unique bathrooms
with a sunken bathtub & shower set in marble, glass sink atop a teak table and a private garden.
Each cottage is L shaped like a small suite comprising a sleeping area with either a king-size bed
or twin single beds, and a living area with an easy chair, marble table and a large comfortable sofa
that converts to a full size single bed if required. Of course individual air-conditioning, ceiling fan, personal safe,

Koh Samui. Thailand southern paradise island - the third largest in the country - lies in the Gulf of Siam
and has long been famed for its incomparable beauty as a truly tropical island.
Chaweng Beach, with its silver-white powder-fine sand and crystal-clear blue water,
is one of the best beaches in the world. Poppies lies on the best part,
where there is no coral under the water - just pure sand.
Koh Samui is an island of coconut palms - about 2,5 million of them.
For sightseeing Samui has much to offer - the mountainous interior conceals coffee
and rubber plantations as well as tracts of untouched jungle and spectacular waterfalls.
Strange rock formations abound.
The most impressive landmark is the Big Buddha, a huge golden image set on a rocky peninsula jutting into the sea.
Other activities include Elephant Trekking, a visit to a Snake Farm, a Crocodile Farm, or the Butterfly Garden.
You can watch trained monkeys picking coconuts, or you can go mountain biking.
Poppies owns small jeeps which may be rented - this is the recommended way to see the island,
so bring your international drivers license. For those who do not wish to drive themselves,
Poppies offers chauffeur-driven day tours, with a picnic lunch provided by our Chef.
