Thailand’s Island Life at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui

International Travellers Welcome to Experience Thailand’s Island Life at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui

Cocooned in a natural amphitheatre along a lush tropical hillside, with endless views of the azure blue waters of the Gulf of Thailand, Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui welcomes guests as the island has opened to fully vaccinated international travellers without quarantine. The Resort is renowned among the world’s best for family vacations, where adults can soak in the vitality of the sea while children frolic in the outdoors with enriching experiences.

Whether it is the much-needed dose of “vitamin sea” or a longing to work remotely at ocean’s edge, the SHA+ Certified Resort is the perfect sanctuary for an extended get-away. With Private Retreats ranging from two to five bedrooms, guests seeking a home-away-from-home now have a new address on the island of Koh Samui.

Samui Plus Program

As part of the Samui Plus program, guests can now arrive on the island and stay at the Resort for seven nights, before travelling to other provinces in the country. The Resort has received Amazing Thailand Safety and Health Administration (SHA) certificate, which is given to venues and businesses that have public health measures in place for COVID-19 along with the SHA Plus Certification, which confirms that more than 70 percent of employees in the organisation are fully vaccinated.

“As we welcome international guests, the health and safety of our residents and employees remains our top priority,” remarks Sean Mosher, General Manager. In response to the evolving situation, the Resort recognises that the expectations and needs of the experience may continue to change. “Our goal is to instill the same level of trust and confidence as ever before,” he affirms.

Four Seasons has introduced Lead With Care, an enhanced global health and safety program that is being implemented at Four Seasons properties worldwide. Combining public health expertise with access to leading technologies and tools, Lead With Care establishes clear procedures that educate and empower employees to take care of guests and each other. 

Re-discovering Thailand is now safe and seamless. From the pristine white sand beaches of the South, guests can explore the beautiful Northern Thailand – the bamboo jungles and hill trails of Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle, to the lush countryside retreat of  Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai.

Revel in the Island Life 

Much of the experience at the Resort revolves around celebrating the outdoors – whether it is relaxing on the deck of the all-pool villas, enjoying a cocktail at the beachside CoCoRum Bar or focusing on mindfulness at the outdoor Yoga Sala.

While adults revel in the tropical paradise, there’s a new classroom waiting to be discovered for the Resort’s young guests. Packed with daily activities that focus on fun learning, the Resort’s Kids for All Seasons program offers insights into culture, art and even sustainability with a closer look at the Resort’s Coral Conservation Project. “Suited for the energetic, the Muay Thai classes includes games and other fun-based activities to keep them focused, active and attentive in the Muay Thai training ring,” shares Alessandro Baccarelli, Resort Manager. “Even the smallest members of the family can participate in interactive cooking classes accompanied by parents to learn the secrets of Thai cooking, making dishes that can be easily be recreated at home.

Extend Your Stay

For guests planning that much-needed get-away within Thailand, the Resort has launched an Extend Stay Package with a host of benefits including spa experiences at the award-winning The Secret Garden Spa, consultation with the culinary and spa teams to personalise dining or relaxation experiences, round-trip airport transfers, and more. 

Families can also get together with a personalised menu by Executive Chef Renato Rizzi, and hand-crafted cocktails at the “Infinity Dining” table at ocean’s edge. For a family escape, the Resort’s Private Retreats offer the most luxurious stay, with a private butler, private chefs on call, canapes in-residence and stunning accommodation with infinite views from the multiple pools. “The team of chefs curate personalised dining experiences with special menus served in the comfort of the dining room or the private deck by the pool,” shares Alessandro.

Learning Made Fun and Personal

For families choosing to stay longer to savour the island life, the Resort has a range of personal tutors who can help children get through their school schedule in the comfort of the Resort’s premises. “We have partnered with certified tutors for in-person lessons including math, science and language exploration,” he adds. Suitable for children of age 6-15 years, all lessons can be customised based on learning requirements. A highlight is the art immersion, where children can explore their creativity through sessions in watercolour art, paper mâché and more.

Contactless Connections

A key part of the service experience at the Resort will continue to be the award-winning Four Seasons App and Chat. As one of the only industry platforms powered by employees on property, not chatbots, this service will further allow guests to control how they engage with employees at the Resort. “While face-to-face interactions may be more limited in times like these, we will remain as connected as ever,” explains Sean. From the comfort of the guest’s own device, the App provides a contact-less experience that does not compromise Four Seasons genuine care and signature service.

“Discover a new space that complements your lifestyle. While the experience may look different, it will feel the same. Our dedicated team is committed to delivering the same intuitive service and personalised care for which we are known for and trusted the world-over,” Sean reassures.
