Now in its 31st year, Condé Nast Johansens remains the most comprehensive illustrated reference to annually inspected, independently owned hotels.

In order to narrow the final selection down to, quite simply, the best selection of accommodation for independent travellers no stone is left unturned.

SALA Samui Resort & Spa and SALA Phuket Resort & Spa are thrilled to be recognized by such a prestigious organization for the third time.

'We are honoured to receive such prestigious recognition. Condé Nast Johansens is a highly respected publication, and to be recommended by them once again is a very nice compliment for our resort teams in Samui and Phuket.' - Brian Moodie, Chief Operating Officer SALA Hospitality Group.

Every featured property is approved for recommendation following an annual inspection by one of their team of local experts. If a property does not reach their exacting standards it is rejected, so you can be confident when you make your booking. That’s why independent travellers have trusted the integrity and quality of the Condé Nast Johansens mark of distinction for over 30 years and can rest assured of the quality and disctinction at both SALA Samui & SALA Phuket.
