The resort opened its doors in July 1987 and became the first five-star luxury hotel on Koh Samui. In 2021, the owners of Tongsai Bay met with the founders of Banyan Tree Group and identified that each held similar high ideals for sustainability, corporate governance, responsible tourism, and community support.
