Situated amid the jewel-like waters of the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Samui exhibits the palm-fringed white sand shores Thailand is so well known for, with a lush interior of forested mountains and coconut plantations. It’s here that the luxurious resort Conrad Koh Samui lies, offering travelers the chance to discover these natural surroundings in style. And now, with the hotel’s Stay Inspired customized guides, each guest can gain unrivaled insight into what makes this region so special.
Each new bespoke itinerary encompasses a carefully curated collection of immersive experiences, enabling anyone who stays here to delve into the arts, culture and gastronomy of Koh Samui and its surrounds, from the island’s verdant rainforest to the extraordinary marine parks it lies alongside.
Naturally, it’s the people behind Conrad Koh Samui who bring these experiences such authenticity; through peerless knowledge of the island, each team member brings their own insider tips together with the stories they have to tell, making the itineraries created for guests more immersive.
Not only do these one, three and five-hour plans provide travelers with the inspiration they need to make the most of their time, each guide is enhanced during the guest’s stay to suit their personal interests, from savouring the surroundings in an over-water hammock, to sailing to a nearby island by speed boat or traditional long-tail boat. Guests can snorkel, set out on a jet-ski, and kayak along the coast, or they can venture to an isolated island for a picnic on its peaceful shores.
One of Thailand’s greatest distinctions, though, is its world renowned cuisine. And what better way to get a taste of this mouth-watering fare than by tucking into the sumptuous seafood of the Fisherman’s Village night market in Bo Put, dining on a mountain top, or mastering the art of preparing Thai cuisine in a hands-on cookery class.
Specialist interests are catered for too, whether touring boutique pottery studios or teeing off from the island’s championship golf courses; whatever it is that a traveler finds most enticing, by using the StayInspired.com online platform to create the ideal itinerary, they can easily share their plans through photos and video, as well as reserving their spot on specific tours. The Conrad Concierge app can then be used to customize this itinerary at any time.
Having been named the region’s best Luxury Romantic Hotel in the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2016, Conrad Koh Samui is undoubtedly a coveted space to stay within. And now, the hotel’s Stay Inspired itineraries ensure the experience guests have in this award-winning setting is as extraordinary as they’d hope it could be.
