Six Senses Samui Resort
Tucked away at the northern tip of Koh Samui, and only a 10-minute drive away from Koh Samui Airport, you’ll find the stunning Six Senses Samui Resort. This rustic rainforest retreat affords perhaps the finest vistas on the entire island of Koh Samui. From its romantic multi-level villas, sublime restaurants and holistic Six Senses Spa, the views stretch far across the Gulf of Thailand, while the headland location means guests can admire both sunset and sunrise.
Just 66 teak villas create an atmosphere of space and light whilst maintaining views from almost every location in the villa. Most of the eco-deluxe villas at Thailand’s Six Senses Samui Resort have private infinity-edged swimming pools that blend into the horizon and help maintain a feeling of seclusion. The higher up the hillside your jungle-luxe villa is located, the better the view across Six Senses’ rock-fringed bay.
The “Dining on the Hill” restaurant serves a mix of regional and international meals, while the award-winning “Dining on the Rocks” restaurant is located at the tip of the headland and boasts 270-degree panoramic views. Focusing on super fresh ingredients from the resort’s organic garden, Six Senses Samui’s restaurants truly won’t disappoint.
Treat your body as a temple: Samui is Thailand’s holistic haven, and if you’re looking to spa, detox or enjoy your best-ever massage, Six Senses Samui Resort is the place to do it. The emphasis of the soothing Six Senses Spa is to offer de-stress programmes that focus on bringing out your inner beauty by pampering to your body’s needs. Try the signature treatment: “Secret La Stone 4 Hands”, a four-handed massage with hot basalt stones. There is also a beauty salon, sauna, steam rooms, a gym plus a room for yoga, Pilates and Thai chi.
On the grounds of the Six Senses Samui Resort you can also find a water sports center as well as an art gallery. If you wish to venture further afield, the hotel takes all the hassle out of arranging island tours, snorkeling trips, catamaran sailing, Thai cookery classes or just borrowing a DVD for the night.
Worth knowing: like all the Six Senses Hotels & Resorts around the globe this is an eco-friendly hotel. The commitment to the environment at Six Senses Samui Resort is serious, but not in-your-face.
Without a doubt, this is the ultimate place to be in Koh Samui for pampered relaxation or a tropical island adventure.
