With a wide range of sports, cultural experiences, spa journeys, environmental adventures and a full calendar of classes for kids, families can come together and enjoy unforgettable vacations in Southern Thailand
Santiburi Koh Samui, S Hotels & Resorts’ natural five-star sanctuary on Samui’s stunning north shore, is the ultimate destination for immersive, activity-filled family vacations this summer. Nestled in 23 acres of tropical foliage with spectacular suites and villas, a long sandy beach, a 50-metre swimming pool, spa, sports centre, tennis courts, children’s facilities and more, this is not just another luxury resort – it is a destination in its own right. This makes Santiburi Koh Samui the ideal choice for parents and children seeking an energising escape in paradise during the forthcoming school summer holidays.

Wellness is a key aspect of any Thai vacation and Santiburi Koh Samui is one of the few places where kids are treated like grown-ups and welcomed into the spa alongside their mom and dad. At Santiburi Spa, the resort’s soothing sanctuary, a dedicated family programme features a series of innovative therapies, including “Mommy & Me,” which allows a mother and child to enjoy side-by-side massages and pedicures, and “Family Time,” which offers up to 15 hours of beauty and wellness treatments for the whole family throughout their stay.

All ages can also come together and feel the refreshing spray of the sea with a wide range of non-motorised water sports, including kayaking, sailing and paddle-boarding, hire bicycles to explore the island, or even learn the art of Thai cuisine with an outdoor cooking class, led by the resort’s talented chefs and using fresh local ingredients such as Koh Samui’s famous coconuts.

Sustainability is now integral to life and travel for all generations, and Santiburi Koh Samui is inviting its guests to embark on a nature trail through the local ecosystem. Walking through this organic oasis, wildlife lovers will be able to learn about the diverse tropical flora and fauna that call the resort home, from towering banyan trees and ferocious water monitors to brightly coloured parakeets and tiny stingless bees. For eco-conscious children, this is an experience that could inspire a deep and meaningful connection with the natural world.

Youngsters will also be kept fully entertained and educated at Panya & Yim’s Junior Camp, the colourful kids’ club. Visitors aged four and above can embark on exciting adventures every day of the week with a daily activity schedule. With inspiring sessions such as kids’ yoga and hip hop dancing, arts & crafts sessions like bracelet weaving and mask making, cultural classes including Thai dance lessons and batik painting and much more, every child can find something to stimulate their mind and inspire their imagination.

While their little ones are being kept fully engaged, parents can enjoy some well-deserved “me time” with a wealth of sports and spa sessions. Whether they tee-off at Santiburi Samui Country Club’s 18-hole golf course, work up a sweat at the fitness centre, challenge each other to a game of tennis on the full-size courts, or enjoy a couple’s massage at Santiburi Spa, moms and dads can find plenty of ways to relax and reconnect with each other. Babysitting services are also available for those who want to enjoy a relaxing evening or romantic meal.

Mr. Giulio Stix, General Manager, Santiburi Koh Samui, said: “Santiburi Koh Samui is a dream destination for families, with an unparalleled collection of activities for young and old alike. For parents, the long summer school holidays offer a unique opportunity to spend quality time with their children and make lifelong memories. Our suites and villas provide plenty of space for up to six guests to stay together in style and comfort. And with such an extensive selection of classes and experiences, kids could even discover a new lifelong skill and passion, right here on the pure shores of Samui.”

Valid until the end of 2024, the Santiburi Koh Samui’s “Family Getaway Stay” package offers immersive, activity-packed summer holidays, including daily breakfast, roundtrip airport transfers, one Thai set dinner for the whole family at Sala Thai Restaurant, and free babysitting for kids aged 4+ every Thursday.
