A seriously cool new Cape & Kantary boutique hotel on a private island just off Koh Samui’s Choeng Mon Beach.

Cape Fahn Hotel is the newest addition to boutique brand, Cape & Kantary Hotels. Sister to Thai favourites, Cape Kudu Hotel, Cape Nidhra Hotel and Cape Panwa Hotel, this all-villa resort steps up the exclusivity factor with its unique location. On a private island just 200 metres from relatively quiet Choeng Mon Beach on Koh Samui, you’ll be able to reach the island resort via a short transfer. Head over by boat or car after some post-flight relaxation at the Cape Fahn Hospitality Lounge – or in the window when the tide is out, you can even walk to the island from Koh Samui across the 200-metre strait.

As a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, you can expect high, personalised standards of service and lashings of sophisticated style. There are Instagram-worthy experiences to inspire a fun, laid-back vibe like the Moonlight Cinema, where guests can watch films beneath the stars, and stand-up paddleboards to head out on and watch the sunset. The food is deliciously creative with two restaurants to choose from; Long Dtai which serves local seafood with spectacular views over the Gulf of Thailand, and Hue, the casual poolside eatery for authentic southern dishes and international favourites.

Just 22 pool villas means you’ll get an intimate island experience. Clean and understated, everything from the double bed to the scatter-cushion seats are made for sinking into. Each villa has a private pool and the difference is the view – Tropical Pool Villas sit amid vivid green flora; Ocean View Pool Villas have dazzling sea views from higher spots on the island; Deluxe Pool Villas are scattered around select locations for extra privacy, and Beachfront Pool Villas place you seconds from the beach.
