STAY

For those look­ing for a se­cluded ex­pe­ri­ence with plenty of time to re­lax and en­joy the Is­land, The Sala Sa­mui Re­sort fo­cuses their at­ten­tion on cre­at­ing a pri­vate and per­sonal at­mos­phere for their guests. Lo­cated on the Cho­eng Mon Beach, the Sala Sa­mui has pris­tine beach­front views and op­u­lent pri­vate vil­las and suites. The re­sort is de­signed in a mod­ern Thai style, fea­tur­ing hard­wood bal­conies over­look­ing pri­vate pools with ocean views. Ope­nair bath­rooms and out­door show­ers give guests full ac­cess to the warm cli­mate and scenery sur­round­ing the re­sort, and re­lax­ing out­side un­der­neath the ve­randa is a great way to take ad­van­tage of the lush land­scape.

There are three gor­geous vil­las on the site: the Sala Pool Villa, the Gar­den Pool Villa, and the Deluxe Bal­cony Villa. The Sala Pool Villa of­fers an out­door day bed which is per­fect for laz­ing and re­lax­ing in the warm sun­shine and a pri­vate pool. You don’t have to move far to ex­pe­ri­ence the won­ders of the out­doors here and a lush, green gar­den by the pool­side is a wel­come ad­di­tion. The room fea­tures a king size bed, writ­ing desk and sofa, along with hard­wood floors and white and cream color tones to add to the re­lax­ing at­mos­phere. The Gar­den Pool Villa is sim­i­larly de­signed, and the Deluxe Bal­cony Villa fea- tures the same ameni­ties, along with a bal­cony for guests to en­joy the view from above.

Other ac­com­mo­da­tions of­fered in­clude villa suites rang­ing from the One Bed­room Pool Villa Suite, with ex­tra liv­ing room and a sun deck along with a pri­vate pool. The Two-bed­room Pres­i­den­tial Villa Suite, is per­fect if you’re stay­ing with fam­ily and a group and of­fers an out­door din­ing area.

PLAY

Sala Sa­mui Re­sort is aware that Koh Sa­mui has a lot more to of­fer be­sides ro­man­tic, lux­ury re­sorts, and they make sure their guests are aware of this too, by pro­vid­ing an ex­ten­sive list of ac­tiv­i­ties to do through­out the is­land. One of the most popular places to visit is the Fish­er­man’s Vil­lage in Bo­phut, which is sin­gle street lined with au­then­tic Chi­nese shops and some de­li­cious din­ing op­tions. The Sa­mui Boat Char­ter is a fun ex­pe­ri­ence for fam­i­lies, and pro­fes­sional guides will tai­lor an out­ing to in­di­vid­ual de­sires and you can choose from ex­plor­ing re­mote beaches, hook­ing some fish, or div­ing. For golf­ing en­thu­si­asts, the San­tiburi Sa­mui Golf Course is cel­e­brated as one of the most beau­ti­ful cour­ses in Asia, em­bed­ded in a moun­tain land­scape and sur­rounded by co­conut trees.

SPA

The spa of­fers four unique ex­pe­ri­ences: The Sig­na­ture mas­sages, Stress-break­ers, Well-be­ing, and Some­thing Spe­cial. As an even more unique and spe­cial treat­ment, mas­sages can be sched­uled on the beach at sun­rise or sun­down; the per­fect way to start the morn­ing or end the night! The Sig­na­ture Mas­sages com­prise the Sig­na­ture Thai Mas­sage us­ing warm vir­gin co­conut oil and gen­tle pres­sure to en­sure tran­quil­ity. Some of the mes­sages that com­prise the Stress-break­ers are the Hot Stone Ther­apy, which uses heated basalt stones to de­liver deep tis­sue mas­sages or the Swedish Mas­sage which is a clas­sic tech­nique com­bin­ing long, flow­ing strokes, com­pres­sion, and oils to re­lieve you of stress and ten­sion. A popular Well-be­ing mas­sage is the Asian Com­bi­na­tion Mas­sage, which com­bines a heated aro­matic com­press with tra­di­tional Thai herbal reme­dies to re­lieve you of ten­sion and sore­ness in the mus­cles. Fi­nally, the Some­thing Spe­cial mas­sages are truly some­thing spe­cial, as they are done quite dif­fer­ently than tra­di­tional mas­sages. The ‘A Head Above’ mas­sage driz­zles warm co­conut oil on your hair and mas­sages it into your scalp, per­fect for calm­ness and en­ergy and leaves your hair healthy and shiny.
