Samujana in Koh Samui Thailand, has created a resort that is a piece of paradise where escapism is the ambition for you both. Comprised of a series of serviced villas that have their own pool and private beach access to give you unadulterated views. The large private infinity pools that nestle on the contemporary terraces of the villas, afford you the space to have pool parties or for those early morning risers, simply to do laps. The views create a space where you’ll simply want to sit and relax or do a session of yoga that the resort can arrange for you. Additional features of the villas for your comfort are audio and media installations, a contemporary luxury kitchen with adjacent dining and living area. Some of the villas also have landscaped rooftops and jacuzzis. The beauty of the resort is that it is almost completely customisable and you can be pampered by the staff whenever you wish, or you can be completely left alone and the staff will work with you to create your bespoke holiday experience. The resort has a variety of different sized villas suitable for those travelling in just a cosy twosome or if you are travelling in a group then go super sized and really take advantage of the fantastic villas that Samujana has to offer.
Within the resort, guests can charter the 43 foot resident catamaran, Kindred Spirit or one of the 4 smaller sailing and motorboats. Explore the local waterways before relaxing on land with a cooking class teaching you how to prepare dishes such as green Thai curries or spicy mango curries. All your friends will want to come to your dinner parties at home after one of these lessons. Or if you don’t feel like cooking in the evening, simply relax in your pool whilst your very own private chef cooks up a feast for you.
Guests have access to a great range of facilities and experiences at the resort and in the local area meaning that those that want to explore a little further from their villa won’t be disappointed. Sight seeing experiences nearby range from a rum distillery to Big Buddha or Wat Phra Yai, the 12 metre high statue built in 1972 – Samui’s largest temple. Koh Samui also offers several 18 hole golf courses such as Santiburi Country Club or the 9 hole Bophut Hills Golf Club.
For those of you who are really into yoga and wellbeing Michaela Olexova will be conducting a week of stretching, breathing and meditating in September. You’ll rise early to get the most out of the day with sunrise sessions followed by specially prepared meals that take advantage of the superb local produce on offer to Samujana.
