A paradise for holiday goers; an island of breathtaking natural beauty. Enjoy the Top 3 Luxury Vacation Experiences in Koh Samui right by the beach.
A natural beauty, sparkling in Thailand’s glittering Andaman Sea, Koh Samui promises a luxurious escape of scenic authenticity; an island of breathtaking natural beauty and a perfect backdrop to a tropical escape stay at a luxury resort. While it might be tempting to simply lounge by the beach or by the crystal clear waters lapping at the white sand shores of paradise, no luxury vacation in Koh Samui is complete without exploring a little more. Here are our Top 3 experiences while you are staying on the island.
Relaxing, holistic spa treats balance perfectly with an exotic vacation in a stunning location by the beach. Anantara Spa at Anantara Bophut Samui is an incredible oasis, inspiring a sense of wellbeing as you are taken on an indigenous Spa Journey, with healing rituals and ancient therapies for the mind, body and beyond. This award-winning spa is a perfect sanctuary by the sea where luxury experiences await.
Dive into underwater beauty
Below the blue waters you can discover an underwater world of beautiful reefs, rich marine life and an exotically luxury vacation experience. Scuba diving at Sail Rock is an incredible adventure where you can spot whale sharks by the colourful coral. Dive or snorkel with a day trip to the beautiful Angthong National Marine Park with Bophut-based 100 Degrees East Marine Team or enjoy a private speed boat charter for a luxuriously customised tour of an environmentally protected area, before exploring the beauty under the water. You can also take a fishing tour in Samui too!
A cultural tour of temples
As well as luxuriating in the simple natural beauty of Koh Samui, explore and experience the culture of Thailand with a visit to some of the island temples. Wat Phra Yai is renowned for its huge Buddha statue that sits on a rocky island off Koh Samui and can be reached from the island. On Samui, Wat Plai Leam is famed for its big Chinese Buddha and Wat Samret is off the main tourist track and houses more than 80 Buddha statues in one fairly small room. There are some unique, ancient decorations here too. A must-see is also the mummified monk at Wat Khao Po, with an interesting tale to hear about.
There is no better way to experience a dream vacation in Koh Samui than with a stay at Club Resort Anantara Vacation Club Bophut Samui, with luxury suites and stunning pool villas; relaxing in elegant, plush comfort with hardwood furnishings and touches of indigenous design, right by the quiet bay of Bophut, with a wonderfully tranquil stretch of white sands beckoning and a quaint fisherman village to explore.
