The Picture Perfect of the Family Ideal

in Families by
Children are fabulously celebrated and doted on by the Thai people which makes it a seriously sensational destination for a family holiday. The stunning island of Koh Samui is trending hard among those ‘in the know’ families. Velvet soft sandy beaches are perfect for sand castle construction (and parent lazing) while the glittering azure shallows are so safe for swimming and snorkeling – the exact amount of needed shade is provided by the abundance of trees which complete the picture perfect of the family ideal.
Koh Samui is just off the south-east coast of Thailand’s Surat Thani. It’s laid back and a tranquil corner of an energized nation. Blessed with extraordinary natural beauty it has a raft of fun adventures that will be certain to create memories.

Family-friendly villas

The first concern for most families is where to stay. Hotels and resorts may pitch themselves as family friendly, but the prying eyes of other guests can be vexing. Massive resorts offer little in terms of space and privacy and certainly don’t give you access to your own private chef.
The support of a stellar team of professional staff in a luxury private villa caters to the broad demands of family life. Daily housekeeping discretely happens every day everything is pristine and random glasses are whisked away. Meals are a stunning affair with a private chef creating beautiful dishes – from exotic delicacies, western favourites, barbeques, kids’ choices and even special diets. Add to this an easily secured in-villa nanny and the load of parenting can be lightened even further. 
Imagine a private swimming pool with floating toys, play equipment, board games and possibly table tennis and pool tables. Staff are quick to help with the kids, so you can enjoy the bliss away from other guests who may not love junior’s joyful squeals and noisy pool games. Secure walls deliver safe spaces for little ones to wander and explore under the watchful eyes of a nanny. Many villas are also big enough to house a few families turning a gorgeous estate into a sensational tribal ground with friends and cousins roaming in packs. 
A stream of homemade snacks will be prepared by the cooks and guests also have open access to the kitchen which is worth its weight in gold for families with toddlers and babies – and jetlag. 

Enjoy Koh Samui in Family

Villa managers are a mine of local intelligence and know where to find the fun far and beyond snorkeling and kayaking in the crystal-clear waters and mysterious coves of the Ang Thong Marine National Park.
Coco Splash Adventure & Water Park and zip lining through the trees with Samui Canopy Adventure are popular spots and families also give the thumbs up to crazy golf and football golf. Jump on the giant inflatables at the Aqua Park or hit the track with go-karting. Cultural visits can take in the stunning Thai temples, explore Thai cuisine at a cooking class, visit art galleries, a butterfly garden and insect museum. If that’s still not enough then try fishing, jungle trekking or teen training kick boxing followed by a kid friendly Thai massage.
Family Holiday - Koh Samui
Kids will delight in watching the monkey school graduates harvesting coconuts. These monkeys have been trained to climb trees and twist the coconuts until they drop, and they love to put on a bit of a show. Drink delicious fresh coconut water straight from the source that was picked by a cheeky macaque.
It’s believed the word Samui is a corruption of the Malay word ‘Saboey’ which means safe haven – which could not be more suitable for this outstanding family fitting destination.
