Orient-Express to revamp Napasai spa resort

Napasai Resort and Spa on the Thai island of Koh Samui is to undergo a redevelopment as part of owner Orient-Express’ strategy of upgrading its Asian portfolio of hotels and resorts.

Plans include clearing underwater rocks and coral to create a 28,000sq m (301,000sq ft) fine sand lagoon in front of the hotel.

The project is the latest phase in Orient-Express’ investment in Napasai and will see the resort lose for one month from 15 May 2011. Existing facilities at the resort include the Napasai Spa.
