Why Koh Samui’s The Ultimate Honeymoon Destination
Pristine beaches and azure blue waters are not the only things the island of Koh Samui has to offer. Iconic Buddhist temples, uninhabited islands and mountains are part of the equation as well, and with the help of the concierge team (aka the destination experts) at Vana Belle, a Luxury Collection Resort in Koh Samui, you’ll have the best time honeymooning in Koh Samui and the surrounding islands.
The best time to capture the beauty of the island’s iconic landmarks is during the sunrise, as spears of light pierce through the dark skies, transforming the temples into dark silhouettes against the golden sky. If you’re lovers of the ocean, explore the Gulf of Thailand the way locals would by embarking on a 30-minute traditional Longtail boat ride to the uninhabited island of Koh Matsum. Head over to Angthong National Marine Park for an unforgettable snorkelling experience where black corals and extraordinary marine life, including the friendly giant whale shark, will greet you when you dive into the crystal clear waters.
If the two of you are adrenaline junkies who are all for adventure, climb the steep inclines of Thailand’s second largest island in a jeep through coconut plantations and dense jungles, to a stunning mountain top vantage point. End your day basking in the sunset, admiring scenic views of the towering five islands, and indulge in delectable Thai food such as Alaskan king crab in Samui style curry sauce and wild boar stir-fried with delicious southern curry at Kiree. Foodies, fret not. The Concierge team at Vana Belle Guests will help you on your quest to explore other authentic food haunts on the island.Vana Belle, a Luxury Collection Resort, Koh Samui is offering Starwood Preferred Guest members the chance to earn Double or Triple Starpoints for bookings made from 31 August – 20 September 2017.
