The Langham Place Samui is said to be on target to open in November this year, but they're obviously thinking late November, because bookings are only open from December 1. For that date, we found accommodation ranging from 7,000 Baht ($200) up to 17,400 Baht ($500) for an ocean view villa, but things get more expensive closer to the Christmas and New Year season. But you might also keep an eye out for late November specials if they do get up and running before December.
The Langham Place Samui Will Open in November
We usually find plenty of good things to say about Langham Hotels and the Langham Place Samui looks like it will follow the good reputation when it opens later this year. With 77 villas and suites suitable for private getaways or arranged together for group vacations, the Langham gang are promising the same good service we expect along with a few interesting innovations.
One is their idea of "borderless dining" which means you can have a romantic meal in "specially-designed dining retreats scattered in the grounds". We also like the sound of the Portal Surf & Play area, which sounds like a combined WiFi zone and cocktail bar, plus they also have the Splash Bar poolside where you can keep a cocktail handy while watching a poolside movie.
