Meliá Koh Samui’s ‘Island Indulgence’ Experience Marks Island’s

As Thailand’s Koh Samui island opens to international tourists, Meliá Koh Samui has launched a package anchored by a stay in a meticulously refurbished merchant vessel.

Overlooking secluded Choeng Mon Beach on the north-eastern tip of Koh Samui island in the Gulf of Thailand, the resort’s “Island Indulgence” offer comprises a minimum of seven nights in a Premium Room or Boat Suite.

The package is priced from THB 22,222 (USD 676) nett for a Premium Room and THB 25,555 (USD 777) nett for a Boat Suite for direct bookings until March 24, 2022 for stays until March 31, 2022, and includes

The Premium Rooms feature a separate bathtub and shower, with a large private balcony overlooking a 700-metre-long lagoon pool that meanders through the resort’s grounds like a river. The elegant two-story Boat Suites are made from refurbished teak wood merchant vessels that are more than 100 years old and once plied the Gulf of Thailand’s waters.
