Koh Samui is a beautiful resort island in the Gulf of Thailand. It’s known for its cosmopolitan scene, stunning beaches and having something for every budget. The three main beach towns on Koh Samui offer different experiences. Chaweng beach has an energetic scene; Lamai beach has a relaxed and easy atmosphere; while still enjoying a bit of hustle and bustle and Bophut fisherman village is utterly timeless. This really is the best vacation spot to relax and pamper yourself in luxury while sipping on fresh Maphraw (coconut). Here are 4 ways you can enjoy an indulgent day in Koh Samui.
A day at sea
The utterly best way to spend a day here is on the Andaman sea. Enjoy a private charter boat with Champagne, traditional Thai food and all sorts of water activities. To make it even more luxurious, indulge in an on-board massage or get your nails done on the high seas. Thailand is known for having great service for a reason. Getting active in the salty sea always feels amazing on the body and leaves you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to relax. You can explore the breathtaking archipelago of the forty two islands that make up the gulf. A sightseeing tour is a must with stops for snorkelling, kayaking, and hiking to view points. Depending on the boat you book you can also have access to toys such as jet skis and so much more!
A day at the spa is a divine way to pamper. You can find a huge range of options to spoil yourself with. Massage, haircare, waxing, facials, manicures, soothing treatments, and therapies can all make you feel like a hundred bucks. You can enjoy a holistic blend of Thai therapies with Western practices and Ayurvedic medicine. Anantara Spa is a natural haven of lily ponds and has an emphasis on local ingredients alongside local healing traditions. They do a little of everything from a floral foot ritual, detoxifying green tea scrub or a Thai herbal steam and much more.
To pamper yourself in Koh Samui look no further than the abundance of nail salons and hairdressers. Spend an afternoon getting coral shades painted onto your fingertips and toes for that perfect “on the beach cocktail selfie” or get a blowout and cut, so you’re looking and feeling beautiful for a lovely dinner on a beach at sunset.
Explore the shops of Koh Samui where you can find some really amazing pieces and perfect outfits for the warm weather. Central festival mall in Chaweng has all the designer stores your heart desires alongside named brands such as H&M. There are lots of things to see in the mall so plan a full day for it. The cinema in the mall Is also a great way to get out of the heat and rest your feet. If you want the true authentic experience then head for the night-markets in Lamai Night Walking Street and Chaweng Night Market which make shopping in Koh Samui a unique experience.
