Grand opening for the impeccably designed SALA Samui Chaweng Beach Resort

 SALA Samui Chaweng Beach opens this week with the General Manager, Erwin van der Veen revealing the inspirations behind the resort’s interior design scheme.SALA Samui Chaweng Beach Resort was conceived by Thailand-based architectural and interior design firm Onion and draws references from Koh Samui and neighbouring Koh Phangan’s world-renowned Full Moon, Half Moon, and Black Moon celebrations.

Varying moods are pegged to the three lunar phases and these provide the design compass for different spaces within the resort. As guests move through the property they will experience a shift in mood – from the openness and high energy of the full moon on arrival, through smaller half-moon connecting courtyards to the more intense shades of the black moon spaces,” said Erwin.

The resort will open in two phases starting with the Oceanfront Wing where the designers drew heavily on the energy of a full moon, inspired by the 120 metres of beach frontage, as well as facilities and guest rooms designed to take in the ocean views. The circular shape of the full moon is incorporated into various design elements, from the architectural façade with touches deliberately placed to cast circular shadows, to the swimming pool, aptly named the Moon Pool, which references the lunar muse.


Inside the rooms, the circular motif continues, with full moon-inspired lighting fixtures and circular bathtubs. Interior archways follow the curve of the pervading theme, creating a relaxing and organic sense of space. All together the Oceanfront Wing will comprise of 52 pool villas and pool suites sized between 74 square metres (sqm) and 304 sqm, all featuring private pools between 18 sqm and 52 sqm in size.

For the most intimate spaces in the resort, the dark moon inspiration was interpreted by further increasing the density of trees, plants, and green areas to offer a feeling of natural tranquillity. The privacy and intimacy in these spaces is even more pronounced, with native landscaping planned to provide a sense of sanctuary in areas such as the SALA Spa.

The second phase will be completed in 2019 and will comprise 83 rooms, pool villas and pool suites, as well as the SALA Spa and SALA Gym, a garden oasis swimming pool with inviting Garden Pool Bar, plus an open-air show kitchen experience with an exciting roadside concept restaurant and bar.

Other highlights include the stunning Moon Pool located on the seafront, and an open-air beachfront restaurant – The TENT Beachfront Restaurant and Bar – serving a combination of international cuisine, modern Thai favourites and SALA Signature dishes amongst various private dining spaces, casual beach salas and romantic beachfront gazebos. Exclusive in-villa dining options and SALA’s signature selection of pillow types, organic soaps, scents and lotions will add to the unique indulgences of the stay.

Opening rates start from THB 8,500+++ inclusive of a 15% discount when booking 90 days in advance or 10% off for bookings made 45 days in advance.
