Conrad Koh Samui Picks Up Top Luxury Accolades
Conrad Koh Samui has received international recognition at the 2019 World Luxury Restaurant & Spa Awards – an annual event that names the best luxury restaurants and spas on every continent.
At the awards ceremony held recently in St. Petersburgh, Conrad Koh Samui received three awards for its oceanfront Jahn restaurant, well known for its fine dining atmosphere and modern Thai cuisine, and one award for Conrad Spa Koh Samui.
Accolades awarded to Jahn restaurant at the World Luxury Restaurant Awards were for top global “Luxury Resort Restaurant” (fourth consecutive year); “Thai Cuisine” (Asia continent category) and “Fine Dining Cuisine” (Regional category).
The Conrad Spa Koh Samui was named “Country Winner” in the Luxury Wellness Spa category at the World Luxury Spa Awards, held simultaneously in St. Petersburgh. The World Luxury Spa Awards recognise spas across a variety of categories on a country, regional, continental and global level.
Conrad Koh Samui General Manager Ruben Gabino said, “The judges in the World Luxury Restaurant Awards were clearly very impressed once again with the totally authentic dining experience provided for every guest at Jahn. Thailand is well known throughout the world for its diversity of cuisine and the sheer wealth of home-grown herbs, spices, fruits, vegetables and other ingredients. Indeed, Thailand is blessed with wonderful herbs and spices and we grow many of them in the kitchen garden terrace created by our chefs.”
Ruben Gabino added, “Health and wellness is an integral part of the Thailand visitor experience and we are very proud that Conrad Spa Koh Samui has been recognised as one of Thailand’s top spas. Our mission is always to create luxurious and poignant memories for our spa guests whilst recognising that the most important luxury is ‘being yourself.
“Spa treatments form an important element in providing an environment for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation. That’s why we have invested heavily in creating a luxury spa at the Conrad Koh Samui that delivers the highest possible global standards day after day. Each spa journey is a tailor-made experience that begins with a detailed consultation and continues with a customised treatment designed to ensure a transformed state of being.”
World Luxury Awards Group Marketing Director Michael Hunter-Smith said, “We congratulate this year’s winners. True luxury is not easily attained. It takes highly efficient and dedicated staff who are willing to go the extra mile and stop at nothing to ensure that every guest feels cared for and no challenge goes unresolved. This is the definition of luxury. It is what makes the winners shine.”
At Jahn, our award-winning restaurant, Chef Nicolas Piatti, Executive Chef, and his team take you on a culinary journey with a choice of three tasting menus featuring dishes that capture a myriad of Thai flavors using modern cooking techniques.
Kaffir lime leaves, ginger and lemon grass are typical of the magical ingredients added to Jahn’s special dishes – including curries. Chefs also use kaffir lime leaves to flavour the rice and to marinate the shellfish and seafood as they provide a uniquely wild aroma and distinctive flavour.
