Four Seasons Resort, Koh Samui, Thailand (Continued…)

Beach & Infinity Swimming Pool

The beach is completely private and totally exclusive. Nestled between 2 hillside cliffs, it is only accessible by water or through the hotel so it’s one of the only beaches on the island where you won’t be bothered with people trying to sell you things, leaving guests to relax in the chic surroundings, complete with hammocks and circular beds dotted around the white sand. However, if the sea isn’t for you, fret not…this is also where you will find the resort’s giant infinity swimming pool!

For those who find it difficult to relax, a game of volleyball with the staff can easily be arranged or there are free snorkelling masks which are provided if you fancy checking out the beautiful coral reef. The resort also has a high-tech health club, tennis courts, an open-air yoga pavilion and water sport facilities.
 
Another nice touch is the activity schedule which changes daily, offering a range of pursuits from learning the art of Thai massage to kite-making. There really is something for everyone here!
 
Holistic Thai healing can be found at the spa, which is nestled in the thriving coconut groves. The resort has five individual spa pavilions with ample indoor and outdoor treatment areas for two and features treatments which are indigenous to Thailand, fusing traditional techniques with yogic and Asian cultures. I must recommend one of the resorts signature treatments – the Siam fusion - an 80 minute pressure point massage treatment, which includes  ‘Luk Pra Kob’ (a warm herbal compress of lemongrass, ginger and camphor) to warm the muscles and relieve tension, followed by an energising deep-pressure massage with mandarin and peppermint essential oils.
 
A final word of praise is for the Four Seasons’ food, which is as spectacular as the surroundings and an exercise in aesthetics in itself!

For hilltop dining, Lan Tania offers innovative Thai and Italian cuisine with stunning views of the ocean and surrounding islands. Pla Pla (the Thai word for fish) is the resort’s beachside restaurant and the venue for special weekly dining events such as barbeques and traditional Thai themed nights. Fish lovers get a real treat here as fish are caught daily and can be hand-selected by guests. Also, check out Pla Pla’s signature dishes and vitamin enriched cocktails, you won’t be disappointed.
 
The skilful architecture protects of this beautiful resort 100% protects your privacy so it’s clear why celebrities would flock here! However the staff, professional as ever, unfortunately remained tight-lipped as to the identities of their high profile clientele.
