Karma Apsara resort opens in Koh Samui
Leading international travel and lifestyle brand Karma Group has announced a return to Thailand’s Koh Samui with the opening of Karma Apsara, a tranquil oasis located on the pristine coconut grove slopes of the popular holiday island.
Located on an elevated slope in Mae Nam along Koh Samui’s breathtaking north coast, Karma Apsara brings together 32 spacious one and two-bedroom residences offering both garden and ocean views.
Karma Apsara is located just five minutes from the sugary white sand and swaying palm trees of Mae Nam Beach, with Koh Samui airport just 15 minutes away. Besides its stunning natural attributes, Mae Nam features an excellent golf course, eateries and boutiques, with the town of Chaweng just a short drive away.
Featuring a pretty horizon pool with panoramic views, an on-site restaurant and bar and private beach access, Karma Apsara is the ideal gateway to discover one of southeast Asia’s most fabled islands.
John Spence, founder and chairman of Karma Group, said: “Koh Samui is one of my favourite islands in south east Asia and as Karma previously developed a highly successful resort on the island, I am delighted we are returning.
“Karma Apsara, named after the mythical water nymphs, is located in the north of the island close to pristine white beaches and the Santiburi golf course, making it a perfect base to explore the spectacular local surroundings or just kick back and relax by the pool. We are currently undertaking a rolling renovation programme to make the resort even better, according to Karma’s high standards.”
Karma Apsara’s 32 spacious rooms are perfect for everyone. Guests can choose from a range of one-bedroom studios and one or two-bedroom residences, ranged around a pool overlooking Mae Nam bay. All feature comfortable king or queen-sized beds and en suites.
Guests can relax poolside with a signature Karma Apsara cocktail, iron out the kinks from that long-haul flight with a relaxing Thai massage with one of Karma Spa’s bodyworkers, or take a stroll through the perfectly tended tropical gardens. If feeling like a longer walk, guests can head to Mae Nam beach or opt for a round at the Santiburi golf course, just 3km from the resort.
Karma Apsara’s semi al fresco restaurant features floor-to-ceiling glass that opens to create a seamless transition between interior and exterior spaces. Guests can enjoy a selection of exquisitely prepared local dishes inspired by Thai street food traditions, as well as international favourites.
There is a great selection of fine wines from the resort’s well-stocked cellar as well as cold, refreshing local and international beers and a wide range of cocktails.
