Ocean breathing classes, holistic treatments and temple visits to make merit with monks, wellness holidays in Koh Samui are soothing for the soul; discover the best places to stay with Kuoni
Whether you’re on your honeymoon or travelling with your family, Koh Samui is the ideal beach escape with sunshine and tropical warmth almost all year round and a more relaxed vibe like some of its busier neighbouring destinations. Most resorts are found on the east coast – from The Tongsai Bay boutique resort with exceptional service and luxurious spa in the north, to Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary With Wellbeing Escapes which is one of the world's top wellness sanctuaries. Wellness is certainly taken seriously here, with a variety of soothing hotels that cater for every need; not only can you enjoy Kamalayas’ award-winning holistic treatment and former Buddhist heritage, but other options include Absolute Sanctuary With Wellbeing Escapes which specialises in detox, yoga, Pilates, fitness, weight management and de-stressing programmes, and Silavadee Pool Spa Resort’s activity programme which offers sessions in pranayama (ocean breathing), origami and temple visits to make merit with monks. At the seriously swish end of the scale, Cape Fahn Hotel is an all-villa hotel – each with a private pool – on a private island.
