Only 80 minutes away from Bangkok is Koh Samui, Thailand’s third largest island. Today it is among the finest tourist destinations in Asia thanks to its magnificent beaches, thriving greenery and inspiring temples.
Koh Samui is a place where you can have your holiday anyway you like it simply because it has so much to offer. With the exception of the sun, sea and beach there is bowling, shooting, go karting, waterfalls, spas and full moon parties!
Situated on Throng Khut Bay off Koh Samui, a 30 minute boat ride from Koh Samui, is the Naga Pearl Farm, yet another interesting tourist site. The pearl industry in these parts began with the natives who were curious by nature which most probably led them to the discovery of these precious commodities that lay beneath the intimidating tropical waters. The Naga pearl farm is an interesting tour to experience the methods by which pearls are cultured. The farm offers day tour packages that are a fun affair while allowing you to enjoy some Thai food along the sandy beaches.
There are many Samui Resorts that line the costs of the islands. The Anantara Resort and Spa is one such resort that offers an experience that combines the islands magic and Thai charm in perfect balance. The resort offers pool villa’s with one or two bedrooms with and without beachfront views. The villas also offer outdoor and indoor showers and private pools that allow you to indulge in a cold water shower with the wind in your face any time of day. There is also a sun bathing deck on the lounging area of the private patio and garden allowing you to have one of the best experiences of all Samui Pool Villas. Anantara Bophut, Koh Samui also offers wedding packages and an array of water sports from Kayaking to private boat charters.
