Six Senses Samui, Koh Samui
It feels like a million miles from anywhere, peaceful and secluded with some of the most jaw-dropping views over the Gulf of Siam we have seen. In true Six Senses style it has a real feel of rustic luxe but there is absolutely no compromise on the luxury element, the blend is just perfect.
Six Senses Samui
66 wooden-clad villas are scattered across a gentle hillside and there is a wonderfully relaxed ambiance about the place. Each villa is perfectly in tune with its surroundings, utterly private and all with outstanding views. 52 of the villas have a private pool, which we highly recommend, and depending on your preference, the higher you go up the hill the better the view, the lower you stay the closer proximity you have to the beach and glistening infinity pool. The style will definitely bring out the Tarzan and Jane in you – crisp white linens, wafts of sheer muslin and monster-size bamboo canes, all coming together in a serene, jungle-style harmony. The villas have semi-open air bathrooms and some have a private sala which is heaven sent for romantic sunset dining. 24 hour butler service also comes as part of the deal.
For the foodies out there it is worth mentioning that the Six Senses is recognised as having one of the finest dining establishments on Samui, the much-lauded Dining on the Rocks – nine terraces that tumble down to the sea, is a must. Dining on the Hill offers classic Thai fare and each restaurant has a bar attached. You are also within easy reach of lively Chaweng Beach and the more relaxed vibe of Bo Phut Fisherman’s Village with its excellent local restaurants, if you crave a change of scenery.
If you do manage to drag yourself away from the tranquillity of your villa then Samui is ripe for exploration whether it be on foot, cycle or elephant! Get off the beaten track and you will be well rewarded for your efforts. Jungle hiking is superb on the island and the beautiful outlying islands in the spectacular Angthong National Marine Park are just crying out to be explored.
