Dine in style, unwind in the spa, then relax in your private pool villa
Although the Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui is perfect for a relaxing, chilled-out, carefree holiday, it’s also a place where you can keep very busy if you want to. Just reading the resort’s daily activities list makes it clear that there’s no end of things to do here—rain or shine. From spa treatments to an array of sports activities and one-of–kind dining experiences, this beachfront paradise delivers plenty of choice.
The resort’s design scheme displays a playful use of aquamarine colours in the décor of all 60 pool villa units—from the family-friendly Beachfront Pool Villas and the lavish multi-bedroom Residence Villas with Pool. Couples, meanwhile, will especially enjoy the romantic, and very private One Bedroom Pool Villas (of which there are 22), which offer 60 sq.m of high-ceilinged indoor space, a spacious 43 sq.m outdoor hardwood deck, and a 15 sq.m private infinity pool with decorative fountain. All units also include all the luxury amenities you’d expect in a 5-star property, such as flatscreen TV, Wi-Fi, premium toiletries, bathrobes, etc.
The overall property is quite large, and much of it is built on the hillside, but a squadron of on-call electric buggies is always available to take you up and down the steep slopes. The trip down to the beach is quick, and here the gently curved stretch of white sand with shallow water is perfect for swimming, kayaking, or upright paddling.
Dining options abound at this resort, and a variety of new and interesting promotions is guaranteed to entice visitors. The exclusive Sunday Brunch, for instance, at Koh Thai Kitchen—perched atop a palm-clad hill and cooled by pure sea breezes—offers a gourmet gamut of gastronomic delicacies, while live jazz provides the perfect Sunday soundtrack. Brunch packages are: B2,700 (food only); B3,300 (includes glass of sparkling wine); and B4,200 (includes free-flow beverages, including house wines, cocktails beer, and more).
For meals closer to the beach, Pla Pla (meaning “many fish” in Thai), is an 80-seat lunch and dinner restaurant with a fan-cooled deck and open-air terrace. Another venue overlooking the beach, as well as the beachfront swimming pool, is CoCoRum Bar & Restaurant. The seating at this fun and funky covered cocktail bar consists mainly of colourful daybeds and cushioned rattan wingback chairs built for two. Come on Wednesdays for ‘Ladies Night’ where gals can enjoy 2 for 1 drinks all evening.
And if you like sugarcane spirits, you have to visit new pirate-inspired Rum Vault—where a prison door opens into a cozy tasting room with a stellar collection of “imprisoned” rums from across the world.
Finally, take time to relax and unwind with a body beautiful treatment at The Secret Garden Spa. The newly-launched ‘Intuitive Massage’ is aimed at curing ailments with a combination of acupressure, trigger point therapy, hands-on healing, and soft and deep massage. It works miracles on lifestyle problems such as frozen shoulder, back ache, and neck pain and more.
