With its jungle setting and relaxed ambiance, we love Six Senses Samui in Thailand for a honeymoon or holiday for couples. We’re delighted to say it’s one of the featured hotels in our Holiday Sale for 2019 and as a result we wanted to share five reasons why we love this tranquil Thai escape so much…
1. The view is unbelievable
Set on Ko Samui’s lush hillside, each villa at Six Senses Samui affords incredible views over the Gulf of Thailand, glittering in the sunshine, and its neighbouring emerald islands. The best place to soak it up is from the resort’s infinity pool, where it’s tricky to discern where the pool ends and the ocean begins. It’s a view that will transfix you so much, you’ll lose countless hours in the pool…
2. Jungle privacy is paramount
The resort’s wooden-clad villas are scattered across the forested slopes, giving you your own slice of jungle paradise. Each one is utterly private with its own pool, so you can really relax and enjoy the rainforest ambiance that you can’t help but feel from staying at Six Senses Samui. It’s a setting that is sure to bring out the Tarzan and Jane in couples!
3. It has brilliant food options
You won’t go hungry while you’re at Six Senses Samui and its Dining on the Rocks restaurant is arguably the best on the island of Ko Samui. With terraced decks of teak and bamboo perched on rocks overlooking the majestic Gulf of Thailand, the setting is like no other, while its fusion food of modern and traditional fare matches the unbeatable views that lay before you.
4. The sustainable initiatives are great
As a brand, Six Senses is known for its sustainable endeavours. At Samui, its Farm on the Hill offers you a way to see the farm-to-fork concept the resort is using and get involved, too. You can wander the gardens which authentically replicate a Thai farm and help feed the goats, collect fresh eggs and pick ripe produce ready for your next meal!
5. It’s a good base for exploring further
The tranquil villas make it hard to convince yourself to move from your private pool but Six Senses Samui is in a great location for exploring further. You’re within easy reach of the lively nightlife at Chaweng Beach and the sleepy fisherman’s village of Bo Phut, which offers a charming glimpse of local life.
