A stay at an elite haven gives you access to our Elite Concierge Services, which can add that extra spark to your vacation. Lay back on a sun lounger and relax, leaving your itinerary planning to us, rest assured that you are in capable hands. Ask the Concierge to book you on a full or half-day tour around the island, to visit some of its wonders like Grandfather and Grandmother Rocks and Magic Garden. This can be part of the island safari tour on a 4X4 truck, or one crafted especially for you, basis your preferences. For an exotic experience, you can spend half a day at Samui Elephant Sanctuary, where ethical elephant tourism is preserved and encouraged. No tricks or rides here, your day will be spent witnessing the giant beasts go about their daily tasks, assisting in their meal preparation and feeding them.
Besides its pristine, soft-sand beaches, Koh Samui also has an array of exciting activities to keep the entire family entertained. Thrill seekers will love go-karting at Easy Kart, which has a variety of karts and tracks to suit all ages and skill levels. For something racier, pop over to Easy Fly, which, as the name suggests, makes skydiving child’s play. The only wind tunnel in Thailand, it offers skydiving experiences, minus the risks, to adults and children (weighing more than 20kg). For those who prefer to spend a day on the greens, 18-hole Santiburi Samui Country Club is one of the region’s most picturesque golf courses. The Concierge team can organise tee off times, equipment and transport to this heavenly course, replete with bubbling creeks, natural waterfalls and coconut plantations.
An island adventure is incomplete without water fun and Koh Samui’s clear blue waters make it a favourite with the deep sea diving set. First-time divers can take a PADI course or the Concierge can arrange for a tailor-made aqua expedition for experienced divers. If you want to witness whale sharks at play, or sea turtles and dolphins swim around a colourful array of curious fish and stunning coral, you can also try snorkelling, which is a great family activity. Prefer to stay dry? How about cruising the waters on a sailboat or even a luxury yacht? Sip on a beverage and click a few envy-worthy photographs, for others to ooh-aah over when you return home.
The Elite Concierge will be happy to offer restaurant recommendations and even make reservations for you, so you can sample Samui’s delicious fare and experience the island’s nightlife. But with an array of in-villa experiences to choose from, you may prefer to just kick back and spend time in your luxurious villa. Get a spa treatment besides the pool, a henna tattoo or a private yoga lesson with a qualified instructor. Pre-arrival requests for gourmet hampers can ensure that the villa is stocked with your favourite foods and wine, when you check in. Special occasions can be celebrated with aplomb, complete with cakes, entertainment and even live music, if you so prefer. No ask is too big for the Elite Concierge.
