Situated on the idyllic isle of Koh Samui, about one hour south of Bangkok by plane, beachfront Le Meriden Koh Samui Resort & Spa opened September 30 with just 77 suites and villas. Rooms offer pool or beach views, as well as 32-inch flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations. On-site, you'll find a luxury spa, saltwater and freshwater pools, and three restaurants and bars. Now through March 31, 2012, opening rates at the resort are just $145/night, a real bargain for a Le Meridien property, and during Koh Samui's high season. Daily breakfast for two is included; be sure to book by December 31.
THE VALUE: Rates will run about 20 percent higher next May.
THE CATCH: A round-trip flight to Koh Samui from L.A. – with a stop in Bangkok – costs around $1,900.
THE DETAILS: To book, go to www.lemeridien.com/kohsamui.
