Family Friendly in Koh Samui

The Spirit of the Journey

The perfect week away for the family: a 4 star resort with all the facilities that will satisfy both kids and grown ups; huge pools and golden sand beaches for happy days of relax; and a couple of days out to explore beautiful Koh Samui and snorkel the amazing seabeds that bless its archipelago with countless colorful fishes and corals.

Destination Koh Samui

Koh Samui ThailandIn 1971 two backpackers stumbled upon Koh Samui, a paradise-like island - home to mainly coconut farmers and fishermen - fringed by white-sand beaches with palms blowing in the wind and clear green seas sparkling in the sunlight. Much has changed since then: Koh Samui has become one of the fastest growing tourist destinations in Thailand, and the spa capital of the region. But something has remained as it was: the blessed atmosphere of tropical living typical of the "coconut island". Nowadays Koh Samui offers tourist countless choices both in terms of entertainment and relax: you can spend the night sipping on tropical cocktails in a stylish bar and be on a Robinson Crusoe-like beach the day after; you get on a boat and do some extraordinary snorkelling in neighbouring Koh Tao or get to some serious beach party in Koh Phangan; or you can treat yourself to some 5 star relax in one of the fantastic health retreats of the island. At your arrival at Koh Samui our chauffeur will take you to the Bandara, one of our favourite 4 star, family-friendly, beach-front properties in Koh Samui.

Together, these islands form three bays with crystal-clear water and no strong current, white sandy beaches, a variety of colourful fishes and fascinating coral reefs that offer optimal conditions for snorkelling and diving. The high-speed catamaran is ideal when travelling with children: almost as fast as a speedboat, yet more comfortable, these modern, state-of-the-art vessels feature an air-conditioned VIP cabin with snack bar, sun deck and toilet facilities. Visit the Mango Bay, one of the most spectacular beaches of Ko Tao island, rich of colourful fishes and soft and hard corals. The snorkelling equipment will be provided for you, as well as a life jacket so you can float around looking at the beautiful fishes and corals care-free. Have a delicious buffet lunch before heading to explore Ko Nangyuan beaches and amazing marine life. There are many famous snorkelling locations here, all within a 5 minutes walk, nice hike opportunities to the viewpoint where you can enjoy the spectacular views over the beautiful blue bays and nearby Koh Tao (a real "Kodak-moment"), and of course perfect sandy beaches to relax on.
