Celes Beachfront Resort is taking accommodation to new levels.Palm trees and beaches help make the settings for a tropical holiday. But where would we be without resorts that complete the dream? Celes Beachfront Resort brings a world of luxury to the shores of Samui, offering superior accommodation that ticks all the boxes – and then a few more still.

          

The rooms are totally contemporary, not only when it comes to décor but also for the connections with the world outside. High-quality Wi-Fi speakers allow you to listen to music from your phone, and there’s a large screen TV with all the smart functions you could ever wish for. Highspeed internet keeps all options functioning smoothly, and in addition Celes has a library of movies that you’re free to borrow. For added comfort, there’s not only a minibar but you can also be your own barista thanks to each villa having its own capsule coffee machine, dispensing Illy coffee.

          

Three types of villa await; you’ll find 50 Deluxe Botanical with two storeys, ten Pool Villas and eight Beachfront Pool Villas.

          

Deluxe Botanical

Choose a ground floor or first storey suite, depending on your needs. Each villa has all mod cons throughout, and is luxuriously appointed. From upstairs there are views out across the gardens of the resort, while downstairs faces onto the tranquil leafy lanes that criss-cross the property.

          

Pool Villas

What could be better than being able to sit around your private pool? Alternate dips with lounging on a sunbed and experience tropical living at its best thanks to the cool air-con interior of your villa being just steps away. The pool itself has a bubble jet, adding to the fun. In the villa itself you’ll find a big bathtub, a walk-in closet and a bigger shower room than in the deluxe rooms. In addition, there’s an ‘amenity menu’ allowing you to decide on the flavour of the shampoo you’d like in the bathroom, as well as shower gel choices.

If travelling as a group, such as a large family, you can also combine two or three Pool Villas to make a Two Bedroom Connecting Double Pool Villa or a Three Bedroom Connecting Triple Pool Villa.

          

Beachfront Pool Villas

For more enhancements still, opt for a beachfront pool villa, which has all the amenities of the first two choices combined, and enjoy living as close to the beach as possible. Because the villas and their gardens are raised above shore level, you can look out over the sea, but people walking along the beach can’t see in. You’ll also have your own private beach access; steps lead down to a gate that opens onto the sands. A cabana, Celes Beachfront Resort is taking accommodation to new levels.set in the garden, helps you get the most out of your private swimming pool by providing adequate shade, even on the hottest of days.

Whatever you choose, you’ll benefit from all the other delights of Celes. Breakfast, included in your stay, is served in the large, blonde wood dining room at Sea Grille restaurant. It’s a light, airy and very relaxing space that that looks out onto the bay of Bophut just beyond. Eat inside or out on the terrace, exactly as you wish, while you indulge in one of the most sumptuous breakfasts around. With choices that range through international and bring in Chinese, Thai and Asian breakfasts too, the fare is bound to please everyone. Enjoy the very refreshing juices that are made from real fruit and are deliciously refreshing. Cold cuts, cereals and an egg station add more to the early morning enjoyment here, and to cap it, Celes even has its very own bakery, ensuring that croissants and bread come straight from the oven to your plate. Sea Grille remains open during the day, and well into the night, offering casual dining with a fine selection of foods, both Thai and international.

          

You can start, continue or end the day with romance thanks to some brilliant options that Celes offers its guests. Wake up with your beloved to an epicurean in-villa breakfast, with your choice of food brought to you. It’s a memorable way to start off a new day at Celes and is as private as it is fun.Celes Beachfront Resort is taking accommodation to new levels. It’s mirrored by an equally great end-of-day experience, the private romantic dinner. Imagine seeing a candlelit table, decorated with flowers for just the two of you, with your own chef cooking everything to perfection. Both of these are great options provided by the very caring team here. And it goes without saying that if you have any special wishes then the staff will be happy to help fulfil them.

          

You can also luxuriate in a complete spa treatment right inside your villa. Just about anything that catches your fancy on the spa menu is also available in the privacy of your own space. It’s a particularly good way to end an evening and prepare you for a very sound sleep, but you can avail yourself of spa treatments at any time.

          

The staff at Celes are always open to suggestions, and delight in bringing their guests new experiences, so if there’s some special treat that would delight you or your partner, just have a word with them. They’re used to being creative and will always go the extra mile to fulfil your wishes.

          

You’ll no doubt want to explore the world beyond Celes, and there are plenty of trips you can take – all resorts offer these. But Celes goes further, literally. What could be more fun than going down to the beach and stepping up into a luxury catamaran that takes you for a cruise round local waters, visiting the tiny off-shore islands visible from Celes? All this can be arranged at reception, and you can even decide on your own itinerary and places to visit. Once you’re on board and heading out to sea, you can look back and get a glimpse of just how scenic Bophut Bay is, with its palmdotted shore and long stretch of sand.
