Barefoot Luxury ‘Chill Out’ at The Haad Tien Beach Resort on Koh Tao in Gulf of Thailand

3-night stay in private villa with snorkeling, sunset cruise, spa pampering seafood BBQ priced HK$5,200

The Haad Tien Beach Resort is offering a 3-night ‘Chill Out’ package at the ‘barefoot luxury’ boutique resort on Koh Tao, the trendiest new holiday island in the Gulf of Thailand.

Against the idyllic backdrop of its own secluded palm-fringed beach, The Haad Tien Beach Resort is a tropical haven of tranquility on an outlying island reached by ferry from Koh Samui.

The laid-back retreat now offers 3 nights for two in a private villa, priced THB23,000 (HK$5,200) from now until November 30, 2017.

The ‘Chill Out’ promotion includes a snorkeling day trip, sunset cruise and aromatherapy massage at the resort spa and seafood BBQ set dinner – along with complimentary transfers between the island ferry pier.

‘Barefoot luxury’ design of 70 private villas and 74 sea view rooms with private balconies is in harmony with the natural environment, scattered amid 45 acres of tropical landscaping around a private white sand beach.

Three dining outlets spoil guests for choice, with freshly-caught seafood BBQ, Thai and international cuisine at InSea Bar & Grill; freshly-baked pizzas, pastas, antipasti and homemade desserts, at classic Italian bistro Capri; and thirst-quenching drinks, cocktails, fresh fruits and savoury snacks at The Beach Bar.

A large beachfront pool overlooks the crystal blue waters of the resort’s secluded bay and for complete relaxation, Tien Spa features an exotic menu of massages and holistic pampering treatments.

Koh Tao is especially renowned among Thailand’s top diving and snorkeling destinations, and The Haad Tien Beach Resort has its own reef dive centre for classes and expeditions.

Like Koh Samui, Koh Tao was originally ‘discovered’ by backpackers in the 1990s, with many of the first visitors now returning with their families as more luxurious accommodation opens.

The Haad Tien is now at the forefront of hideaways catering for this new generation of guests, while staying faithful to the island’s ‘barefoot’ heritage.

Koh Tao not only offers some of the best scuba diving in the Gulf of Thailand, as host to over 130 species of hard corals and 223 species of reef fishes, but is also popular for rock and boulder climbing bouldering, and hiking.

The island is named after sea turtles that reside on its shores, and is an important reserve and breeding ground.

Koh Tao has no airport, but is connected to Koh Samui Airport, Chumphon Airport and Surat Thani Airport by high-speed catamarans and ferries.
