InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Wins at World Travel Awards Asia & Australia

A beautiful nine-hectare property with magnificent views across the Gulf of Thailand and the islands of Ang Thong National Marine Park, InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam has long been considered one of the best places to stay on Koh Samui; it even received a coveted mention in the New York Times bestseller 1000 Places to See Before You Die. So it’s perhaps little surprise that the 79-room resort took home four accolades at the recent World Travel Awards Asia & Australia, including Asia’s Leading Beach Resort and Thailand’s Leading Beach Resort for the fifth year in a row. “We are constantly striving to exceed our guests’ expectations with our design and superb hospitality and these awards are fantastic recognition,” said General Manager Michael Shin on the occasion. “I have no doubt they will inspire our team to keep delivering exceptional experiences for our guests in 2017 and beyond.”
