Imperial Boat House Hotel, The, Koh Samui, offers a unique blend of delightful illusion and funfilled reality. Thirty-four authentic teak rice barges, imaginatively converted into two-storey luxury boat suites, and "moored" on land just metres from picturesque Choeng Mon beach.
Imagine being lulled to sleep by the lapping of waves and the murmur of sea breezes in the luxurious stateroom of a boat...and then awaking to find you're still on terra firma.
Each suite features a sunbathing deck, living room, dining corner, tea & coffee making facilities, fully fitted sky-lit bathroom and luxuriously appointed bedroom.
The second part of the hotel comprises of eight southern style low-rise buildings, forming three sides of a square around landscaped gardens full of fragrant tropical flowers. All 182 spacious, airy rooms have private balconies overlooking the gardens and sea.
At the rear of the garden, a unique boatshaped swimming pool sits invitingly beside the beach. Lovers of water sports can enjoy sailing, canoeing, snorkelling and windsurfing in the bay. For those who want to explore further afield, trips can be arranged to many of the beautiful off-shore islands.
Imperial Boat House Hotel, The is also eminently suitable for incentive groups. It's one of the few hotels on the island large enough to take groups and it offers marvellous locations for theme parties.
