Fabulous 100

X2 Samui

X2 Samui (pronounced "cross-to") is designed with privacy and intimacy in mind. 27 secluded villas, many of which are not unlike a good sized studio apartment back home, are stretched over five acres of pristine land. Gracious staff are well versed in the art of aiding while never intruding, making guests wonder if there's some sort of phantom cleaner sneaking about.

Although Koh Samui’s small but vibrant strip of restaurants and street vendors is only a few miles away, the property of X2 Samui is as secluded as a desert island, and a welcome escape from the world as you know it. After a day of haggling for Thai treasures, or snorkeling the local beach, return to your private oasis for a refreshing dip in the pool – cocktail resting on the edge, of course.
