Santiburi Koh Samui Unveils New Grand Reserve Pool Villas, Creating a “luxury Resort Within a Resort”

New premium accommodation features an extended array of exclusive facilities and benefits, including generous pools, private dining and in-villa services

Koh Samui, Thailand. March 08, 2018 -

Santiburi Koh Samui, the elegant luxury retreat and leisure resort on Koh Samui’s pristine north shore, is ushering in a new era of refined private living with the launch of its spectacular Grand Reserve Pool Villas.

The 19 Grand Reserve Pool Villas are the newest addition to the top-level room categories at Santiburi Koh Samui, joining the Grand Deluxe Pool Villas and Deluxe Beachfront Villas to extend the resort’s premium accommodation choices.

The new additions create a “luxury resort within a resort”, offering couples or families the highest possible standards of bespoke comfort.

“Our new Grand Reserve Pool Villas offer beautiful, self-contained accommodation that elevates the standard of luxury living on offer and provide guests with exclusive services in spectacular surroundings,” commented Sabine G. Lamberts, General Manager of Santiburi Koh Samui. “We look forward to welcoming guests to these stunning pool villas and raising the bar for personalised private vacation experiences in one of the world’s most beautiful island locations.”

Nestled within their own walled tropical gardens, each Grand Reserve Pool Villa covers an expansive 250 square metres and is blessed with a private pool, contemporary interior design, custom lighting schemes and plush designer furnishings.

The large master bedroom comes fitted with an ultra-comfortable bed, pillow menu and sound-proofing for the most peaceful night’s sleep. The bedroom opens directly onto the spacious outdoor deck and turquoise pool, while guests also have a generous en-suite bathroom with standalone tub and powerful rain shower. Other guest amenities include a modern coffee machine, large TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi.

While they are an integral part of Santiburi Koh Samui, the Grand Reserve Pool Villas also provide guests with an exclusive private vacation experience thanks to the resort’s “Reserve Host” service. This includes in-villa check-in/out, private spa treatments, concierge services and complimentary pre-selected mini-bar items.

Under the Reserve Dining concept, guests are also offered a choice of exclusive meal options such as a floating pool brunch, special Thai dishes served in the villa, family garden barbecues and more. A curated in-villa cocktail menu and wine list is also available for guests to select the perfect drinks to pair with their in-villa meals.

The Grand Reserve Pool Villas are an ideal choice for extended holidays and Santiburi Koh Samui offers a number of additional benefits to guests who stay for 10 consecutive nights or longer, such as special rates for spa treatments, reduced green fees at Santiburi Samui Country Club 18-hole championship golf course and a complimentary Royal Thai meal at Santiburi’s exquisite Sala Thai restaurant.

Set within a garden oasis and framed by azure seas and soft white sands, Santiburi Koh Samui is a genuine tropical paradise. The resort features an array of leisure options, including a 50-metre freeform swimming pool, sports centre, luxurious spa, kid’s activity centre and eco-friendly water sports.

Guest Service: Empowering People

Excellent customer service is vitally important in all businesses but it is especially important for hotels where customer service is the lifeblood of the business. Outstanding customer service is essential in creating new customers, retaining existing customers, and cultivating referrals for future customers. Employees who meet and exceed guest expectations are critical to a hotel's success, and it begins with the hiring process. It is imperative for HR personnel to screen for and hire people who inherently possess customer-friendly traits - empathy, warmth and conscientiousness - which allow them to serve guests naturally and authentically. Trait-based hiring means considering more than just a candidate's technical skills and background; it means looking for and selecting employees who naturally desire to take care of people, who derive satisfaction and pleasure from fulfilling guests' needs, and who don't consider customer service to be a chore. Without the presence of these specific traits and attributes, it is difficult for an employee to provide genuine hospitality. Once that kind of employee has been hired, it is necessary to empower them. Some forward-thinking hotels empower their employees to proactively fix customer problems without having to wait for management approval. This employee empowerment—the permission to be creative, and even having the authority to spend money on a customer's behalf - is a resourceful way to resolve guest problems quickly and efficiently. When management places their faith in an employee's good judgment, it inspires a sense of trust and provides a sense of higher purpose beyond a simple paycheck. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate and manage guest satisfaction in their operations.
