These are some pics from a recent trip to Koh Samui, an island in south Thailand. Samui is a beautiful place, with clear blue-green waters all around. We spent a week there in a wonderful resort – Six Senses Samui. Located on the northern tip of the island, amid hills and a lot of greens, it is quiet, calm and is the ideal place to to take a lazy break. The views of the oceans from the resort are picturesque.
Besides the views, the resort itself is very rustic and charming, with an old world feel – all wooden villas and matching decor.
The nearby, an hour and a half from Bo Phut beach, Angthong National Marine Park is a beautiful place too. You shouldn’t miss this place if you are in Samui. Snorkelling and open ocean kayaking are part of the regular tours here.
It was a lazy break so we stayed away from most of the hustle bustle and hit only a few of the many must-see tourist spots – no Chaweng beach, Lamai beach, the multitude of waterfalls, street shopping or beach hopping for us. We did visit a few nice places though – Samui is a small island, so a couple of days with the car and we were able to get a closer look at the island.
Samui is perfect to laze around at beach in the evening, watching the sun set. Some beaches on the south-western side of the island are tailor made for it – sandy beaches and very calm waters.
