A Dense Rainforest Retreat

Six Senses Koh Samui sits in the Chumphon Archipelago on one of the largest islands in the Gulf of Thailand. The resort itself is located on a sprawling 20-acre estate at the northern tip of the island with views of the gulf and neighboring islands. Koh Samui has long drawn travelers to its dense rainforest, coconut and palm trees, white sand beaches and the Big Buddha statue located at the temple in Wat Phra Yai. On the south and west areas of the island, you'll find old Thailand and authentic family-owned restaurants, nearly private beaches and friendly villagers. This is home sweet home to some of the world's most beautiful beaches.

Fresh Things to Do

Featured Activity


  • Exploring Koh Samui

    Land-based activities are abundant on the island of Koh Samui. Spend a day away from your accommodations to sightsee the beauty of the island.

    Temple tour. Six Senses will guide a tour of the Wat Plai Laem temple, where homage is paid to the goddess of compassion and mercy, Guanyin. Big Buddha temple is next on the tour and its golden statue is often the first thing visitors see from the airplane. The statue sits 12 meters high. The day concludes with a visit to Wat Samret and the "Mummified Monk" at Wat Khao Po.

    Markets. Local custom for Thai people includes a visit to the market early in the morning to collect ingredients for the day's meals. Treat yourself to rice porridge or local coffee.

    Mountain biking. Guided mountain bike tours are offered. Beginning at the hotel lobby, you'll coast through the streets of Plai Laem Village and past several temples.

    Muay Thai. Learn the basics of Thai boxing, an ancient martial art, from a professional instructor. A great workout, the lesson can be tailored to your fitness level.
