S Hotels & Resorts celebrates Global Wellness Day with natural, energising and eco-conscious activities in Thailand

S Hotels & Resorts, the global hospitality company from Singha Estate, is inviting its guests to join the Global Wellness Day celebrations on 8th June 2024, with a series of energising events, immersive activities and sustainable experiences at its four luxury lifestyle resorts in Southern Thailand: Santiburi Koh Samui, SAii Phi Phi Island Village, SAii Laguna Phuket and SAii Koh Samui Choengmon.

The theme of this year’s Global Wellness Day is #MagentaNature, which focuses on the deep-rooted connection between physical and mental wellbeing and the environment. With nature, conservation and sustainability woven into every aspect of its culture and ethos, S Hotels & Resorts sets the stage for escapes that will stimulate the body, mind and soul.

At Santiburi Koh Samui, the natural five-star sanctuary on Samui’s stunning north shore, guests can discover a deeper connection with the natural world this Global Wellness Day with a full schedule of experiences for adults and kids alike. Following a sunrise yoga session, travellers can kickstart their morning with Lèn healthy shots and snacks on the Beach Lawn. A series of hands-on classes will then let all ages come together and forge a new connection with nature, including coconut tree planting, flower decorating, and kids’ arts & crafts at Panya & Yim’s Junior Camp. A jungle trek will allow intrepid adventurers to hike up to a local waterfall, and the Lèn Nature Trail will reveal the diverse flora and fauna that can be found at Santiburi Koh Samui.

Golf is a wonderful way to achieve wellbeing.

Nestled in 70 acres of coconut groves on an 800-metre-long stretch of sandy beach, this is the perfect place to weave the beauty of nature with the spirit of wellbeing. The Marine Discovery Centre is a haven of conservation that showcases the destination’s vibrant underwater ecosystems, and small-scale excursions will uncover the wonders of the Andaman Sea.

Diners can also savour delicious and nutritious dishes at Api, the resort’s stunning seafront restaurant.
