Coral reefs, bone-white beaches, and coconut trees define the landscape on Koh Samui, Thailand's third largest island. Once a laid-back getaway with rustic beach shacks and do-it-yourself bucket showers, the island is now home to various 5-star resorts. The Conrad, comprised of 70 stand alone villas, each with its own private infinity pool, faces west. That makes for unforgettable sunsets over the azure sea. Restaurants, a floating pier, a spa, and a yoga deck with panoramic vistas adds to the coddling.
