As Thailand loosens the shackles of the pandemic and reopens to international tourists, Meliá Koh Samui has introduced a getaway that makes the most of its stunning beachfront setting, family-friendly facilities, dining and spa.
The resort’s ‘Samui, I Miss You’ package coincides with Thailand’s ‘Test and Go’ program that permits quarantine-free travel to the Kingdom for fully vaccinated travellers from 63 countries deemed low risk.
Lauded among Thailand’s top 20 resorts in this year’s Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards, the resort’s ‘Samui, I Miss You’ offers special room rates, starting from THB 3499++ (USD 105++) per night in a lead-in Deluxe Room with three- and seven-night packages on offer.
Daily breakfast for two, a free stay for up to two children aged under 12 years with complimentary daily breakfast, a 20% discount on food and non-alcoholic beverages and 50% discount on YHI Spa treatments are among the offer’s array of inclusions.
The three- and seven-night packages, starting at THB 9999++ (USD 300++) and THB 22,222++ (USD 668++) respectively, also come with a guaranteed upgrade to a Premium Pool Access Room, early check-in and late check-out, a complimentary roundtrip airport transfer from Samui International Airport and either a 60-minute Thai massage or one tapas set lunch for two. The seven-night getaway’s extra perks for two include a 90-minute spa treatment, one tapas set lunch and a daily cocktail. For the spa treatment, guests select either a Thai massage, aromatherapy massage or facial massage.
Under Thailand’s ‘Test and Go’ program, fully vaccinated travelers traveling by air from countries deemed low risk are required to do a COVID-19 test upon arrival to Thailand. With a negative result, travelers are allowed to freely travel anywhere in Thailand. Guests who stay at Meliá Koh Samui on the first day of arrival in Thailand will be charged an additional THB 2200 (USD 66) for the RT-PCR test as required by the Thai authorities.
A standalone bathtub on a private balcony is a highlight of the resort’s Deluxe Rooms. The Premium Pool Access Rooms feature a separate bathtub and shower, with large private balcony access to the 700-metre-long lagoon pool that meanders through the resort’s grounds like a river.
Overlooking Choeng Mon Beach, Meliá Koh Samui’s complimentary recreational and wellness pursuits range from kayaking and aqua exercise classes to gentle flow yoga and “walking meditation” at a “massage river”; a reflexology path situated between the infinity pool and lagoon pool.
Adjacent to an outdoor playground and mini water park featuring a shallow pool, slide, mushroom fountain and giant tipping bucket, kids club Kidsdom is housed in a repurposed teak wood merchant vessel and offers daily activities such as batik painting, super hero art, animal yoga, face painting, coconut leaf creation, nature discovery, play dough creation, mask making and Lego time. The hotel’s elephant mascot Coco visits daily and shares cotton candy with youngsters.
With an outdoor terrace that sits above Meliá Koh Samui’s strand, The Breeza Beach Restaurant & Bar is focused on contemporary Thai dishes as well as Western and Mediterranean cuisine and anchors the resort’s dining landscape. Blending ancient Asian wisdom with modern wellness techniques, YHI Spa offers a broad spectrum of treatments including massages, scrubs, wraps and facials, based on organic Thai wellness brand HARNN’s products.
