Family holidays are where memories are made. Located less than three hours away and easily reached by direct flights from Hong Kong, Koh Samui in the Gulf of Thailand is known as the perfect destination for families. Once a Thai fishing community, Koh Samui is Thailand’s third-largest island after Phuket and Koh Chang. And on the island’s east coast, Sheraton Samui Resort is just 15 minutes’ drive away after stepping off the plane, providing an easy beachfront getaway for all ages.
Sheraton Samui Resort has just introduced a new family holiday package. Guests will receive 25 per cent off a second room when occupants are 21 years or under. Children under 12 years dine for free from the kids’ menu with any purchase of an adult meal in the restaurant. SPG members will also be able to earn triple Starpoints®.
This offer is valid for stays booked and completed by December 31, 2018.
Luxury family time at Sheraton Samui Resort
Sheraton Samui Resort is situated adjacent to the quiet Chaweng Noi Beach with a pristine stretch of white sand and crystal-clear waters. This tranquil tropical paradise is separated from the bustling Chaweng Beach and provides safe waters for younger children to paddle in.
Parents staying at the resort don’t have to worry about activities for their children—they’ll be well looked after at the StarKid kids’ club! The clubhouse offers easy access to the dedicated beachfront pool for children and features a spacious play area. A wide range of fun-filled activities, including Muay Thai boxing, kite making, beach football, traditional Batik painting and salt art, will keep the children occupied the whole day.
Soak up local culture
This exotic island is not just about white sandy beaches and coconut groves. Visit the golden beachfront pagoda, Laem Sor Temple. The shiny golden hue is astonishingly beautiful with the contrast of the blue skies, which makes the perfect family picture moment. Fisherman Village is also a great place to experience the bustling local scene. Every Friday evening, the street in the village will be filled with stalls selling local handcraft items and delicious Thai treats.
A great night market with friendly stall holders, delicious food, place to sit, cheap cocktails and great bargains. It wasn’t too crowded, was easy to get to by taxi and was a lovely end to the day.
