Recommended Honeymoon Hotel: Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui
An idyllic resort in a remote corner of Thailand’s second-largest island, Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui boasts a premium location with a secluded bay looking out over the crystal blue waters in the Gulf of Thailand.
Ideal for honeymooners, the all-private-pool-villa resort was built on the site of a fruit orchard and has been carefully constructed around the original trees that grew there. Perched on the hillside, each villa offer maximum privacy and comfort, equipped with large, open terraces and infinity pools that afford spectacular views of the ocean. The resort also features a 50-meter swimming pool, tennis courts, a Thai kickboxing ring, yoga sala, fitness center and kids’ club and a range of dining venues.
After returning from his recent honeymoon, our Product Manager, Adam O’Keefe, shares his experience:
“If the aim of a honeymoon is to enjoy an almost hedonistic experience of absolute indulgence in a paradise location, Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui is absolutely amongst the ultimate romance retreats in Southeast Asia.
Intimate, secluded and immaculate, the private Pool Villas offer the highest quality fixtures, luxurious amenities and natural elements, while maintaining a touch of modernity with Bluetooth speaker systems that resonate from hidden speakers throughout the villa. Food and beverage options are exquisite, with both authentic local fare and modern international cuisine available at the outlets or in-room for that extra touch of intimacy with your new spouse.
In addition to the exquisite accommodations and divine cuisine (breakfast offerings are particularly of note), the service is one truly special element that stayed in the hearts and minds of my wife and I, even after our stay. We got the feeling that the staff genuinely value their guests and, perhaps most importantly, appear to relish the opportunity to serve. Fixtures and fittings can be replicated, food can be imitated, but top-quality service can only be offered by hotel staff that sincerely care and who love their work.
With every want sated before realizing the need, the team at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui pay great attention to every detail. What sets them apart from the rest however, is that from arrival to departure and beyond it’s clear they cultivate a true passion for service within their team; a team that genuinely cares about its guests and are dedicated to creating once-in-a-lifetime moments – something every couple dreams their honeymoon will be.”
