W Insider at W Koh Samui

Kent – Chairin Khongchanmitkun

"I love that my role as a W Insider lets me interact with guests and share my interests and experiences – and plenty of tips on the island – with our guests. In my own time, I love rooting out what’s New/Next, either by word of mouth or by reading up on local blogs and newspapers and of course keeping up with social media."
