Forget about the paradise beaches, the English meaning of Ko Samui – ‘safe haven island’, makes you want to go there…
Koh Samui is one of Thailand’s most popular islands for tourists yet it has managed to stay authentic. It attracts trendy students and upmarket couples and thankfully, not as many rowdy crowds that descend on some of Thailand’s other islands. Stunning beaches, amazing restaurants and lively beach parties are what it is renowned for but if you look a little closer you will find lots of traditional villages with local food stalls, pretty temples, rainforests, waterfalls and even some deserted beaches. A visit to Ang Thong Marine National Park is a must. Complete with 42 islands, some mountainous, some jungle clad, and some with hidden coves just waiting to be explored. When you arrive back at your hotel, a Thai massage will be greatly appreciated 😉
Speaking of which, the luxurious 5* Mai Samui Resort offers many pampering spa treatments, as well as three swimming pools and a host of on site activities. Take a Thai cookery class, try water yoga or if you are feeling energetic try mountain biking or sea kayaking. The beauty of the Mai Samui Resort is that meals and drinks are included in the price. Enjoy personal service from their excellent staff who will cater for your every need. There is a choice of three restaurants plus light bites served at the Sand bar ( how cool does that sound?) For a full list of what is included click here. Enjoy a sundowner at the swim up bar or beach bar – did I mention that Koh Samui has the most amazing sunsets!
