Thailand’s Best-Kept Secrets
SAii Resorts is inviting its experience-seeking guests to discover two of Thailand’s best-kept secrets: Koh Tan and Koh Madsum, the exotic islands in the Gulf of Thailand that house diverse ecosystems, rich wildlife and even a population of friendly beach-dwelling pigs.
Just a short boat ride from Koh Samui, Koh Tan is a small slice of paradise that showcases southern Thailand’s stunning scenery, with powder-soft sandy beaches lapped by crystal clear seas and coconut palms. Far from the tourist trail, guests can also discover vibrant coral reefs, lush mangroves and serene sea grass. Just a short boat ride away across the sparkling sea, Koh Madsum is famous for its thriving community of pigs who spend their days relaxing on the sand, napping in the shade of trees and cooling off in the sea. They are also very friendly and love nothing more than playing with curious visitors.
SAii Koh Samui Choengmon, the elegant pool villa retreat, is now giving travellers the chance to uncover these island jewels with a dedicated new package. The Island Hopping Adventures promotion combines a three-night vacation with a private excursion to Koh Tan and Koh Madsum by traditional long-tail boat.
Guests can explore a variety of tropical environments, with snorkelling trips to the colourful coral reefs, a tour of the mangrove forest nature trail, and kayaking around the island to discover meadows of swaying sea grass, which are among the most ecologically important ecosystems on the planet due to their ability to absorb carbon and house a wide variety of marine life. On Koh Madsum, guests will have the unique opportunity to take selfies with the pigs.
Back at the resort, visitors can unwind and indulge in a sensational stay from start to finish, with roundtrip airport transfers, daily breakfast, one complimentary lunch or dinner at Miss Olive Oyl, the beautiful beachside restaurant, a soothing 60-minute pampering session at Lèn Spa, and a bottle of sparkling wine.
Travellers can choose to stay in a selection of spectacular pool villas, including beachfront options, all of which feature stylish, locally-inspired interiors, sumptuous linens, creature comfort pillows, signature SAii bathtubs or waterfall showers, plus handcrafted bathroom amenities from the unique M.I.Y Aroma Lab.
Nestled on Samui’s pristine northeast shore, SAii Koh Samui Choengmon is surrounded by lush foliage and swaying palms, with dramatic granite headlands and turquoise seas. Within this eco-sensitive sanctuary, visitors can kayak on the gentle ocean waves, snorkel at the offshore reef, swim in the sparkling seafront pool, enjoy sublime therapies at the spa or savour creative cuisine at Miss Olive Oyl.
“Thailand is home to many enchanting experiences, but Koh Tan and Koh Madsum are truly extraordinary. For wildlife lovers, the opportunity to chill out on an idyllic island, swim among colourful fish, spot native birds and even meet a local population of pigs is simply unmissable. Our Island Hopping Adventures package offers the perfect chance to visit somewhere that is truly off the beaten track, soak up southern Thailand’s stunning scenery and of course, snap photos that will light up any Instagram feed. We look forward to helping our lifestyle-conscious guests create memories that last a lifetime,” said Alexandre Frenkel, General Manager, SAii Koh Samui Choengmon.
