Silavadee Pool Spa Resort 

Feel on top of the world

A hillside hideaway with picture-perfect views, ocean-view dining and a focus on wellbeing.

This upscale eco sanctuary has magnificent sea views from its quiet pocket on Koh Samui. Its buildings are embedded into the cliffside around huge beach boulders, where pool villas float over the water’s edge and dinner tables are perfectly angled for oceanside date nights. Silavadee’s activity programme is refreshingly different, taking on a wellness spin with sessions in pranayama (ocean breathing), origami and temple visits to make merit with monks. The resort’s location means you’re just a short drive from Chaweng and Lamai but tucked away from the busy main beach on a mini peninsula. Bask in the peaceful quiet of the almost-secret beach a few steps from the resort or hop on a bicycle and explore the neighbourhood.

Why we love Silavadee Pool Spa Resort

  • There’s a focus on wellness that includes stress-relief therapies in the spa, mindful art sessions and private yoga and t'ai chi classes

  • Aquaphiles will appreciate the ocean views from the stunning clifftop infinity pool and the tucked-away private beach

  • The impeccably designed accommodation consists of stylish pool villas and spacious rooms with private outdoor spa baths

  • There are plenty of complimentary activities to keep you happy, including snorkelling, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding

It’s in the evening that the resort comes alive, although it rarely feels busy at Silavadee. Guests make a beeline for the rooftop Star Bar for live music, epic sunsets and cocktails under the stars. The restaurants are all dreamy, whether you’re eating exotic fruits for breakfast by the full-length windows at Moon or having dinner at sunset out on The Height’s striking terrace. Sun Lounge is filled with all things good and healthy like bowls of nutritious, whole foods and juices blended with superfoods and raw produce.
