Baan Samui was designed with a distinctive Mediterranean feel in mind, with stucco walls, arches, iron balustrades and chandeliers.
It was originally painted in earthy tones, with splashes of colour, giving it a slight Moroccan feel; then management decided to paint the exterior in every day glo colour imaginable. The buildings housing the rooms are painted cerise, tangerine, indigo and turquoise. The front entrance is a bright orange, and the restaurant orange, blue and yellow, with pink chandeliers and candy pink beach umbrellas. The rooms are surprisingly pleasant inside, still colourful, but more understated. Stained glass windows, crystal lamps, crisp cotton bedding and mosaic-tiled bathrooms are features in the rooms, and facilities include TV, air-con, minibar, hairdryer and bathrobes. There are two restaurants, one on the streetfront and the other on the beach. Live entertainment is a regular event, and a large swimming pool surrounded by a wooden deck leads to the beach, bar, lounge and restaurant, creating a festive vibe.
