Travelers who visit the island of Samui, Thailand, may feel like they have stepped into a tropical postcard. The powdery white beaches, emerald forests, and secluded vistas present a picture-perfect paradise for romantic excursions, family vacations, or laid-back getaways.

Six Senses Samui, a 66-villa resort located on the northern tip of the island, reopened last week after an extensive renovation. The suites feature updated furnishings, and the bathrooms—which are air-conditioned and fully enclosed—have been refitted with floor-to-ceiling glass walls, giving guests an open, airy view of the surrounding scenery. The villa pools have been refinished with turquoise tiles, and an additional seven pools have been added to the grounds. The resort now has 59 villas with private pools in addition to the main infinity pool; seven Hideaway Villas offer decks for entertaining and sunbathing in lieu of private swimming pools.

The popular Dining on the Hill restaurant and adjacent infinity pool also underwent a transformation—with refreshed furniture, beautiful landscaping, a display buffet counter, and a brand-new deck. The award-winning restaurant, which has a reputation for serving some of the best food on the island, uses organic herbs, vegetables, and greens from the resort’s garden to create its delectable dishes—yet another gift from the island’s natural bounty.
