Le Méridien Koh Samui keycards have been created by LM100TM members Sam Samore, Yan Lei and Hisham Baroocha. The unique key cards – collector’s items in themselves – grant guests preferred access to one of Koh Samui’s most treasured cultural institutions – Guan-Yu Koh Samui Shrine or Nakhai-Huathanon Shrine.
About Guan-Yu Koh Samui Shrine
Constructed at the turn of the 18th century, the Nakhai-Huathanon Shrine uniquely functions as both an Islamic Mosque and a traditional Thai Temple, and was one of the first places where these religions united harmoniously. In fact, the shrine helped establish Samui as a peaceful paradise where people of different religions could co-exist in peace. The UNLOCK ART key card gains visitors admission into the shrine, along with a complimentary gift of fruits to present as an offering to Guan Yu, a famed warrior who was a prominent general of the Shu Kingdom in the 3rd century. He is revered for his bravery and accomplishments, and is worshipped throughout China as a guardian.
