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.
Six Senses can set up a Thai cuisine lesson. At the end of the class, you'll dine on your own creations. As a souvenir, you'll take home an embroidered apron and cookbook of local recipes.
Ang Thong translates to "golden bowl" and this national marine park consists of 42 islands in the central gulf, northwest of Koh Samui. Wade in emerald water and explore the stunning rock formations.
Board a Thai fishing boat for a private tour around the bay. You'll learn the tricks of the trade of the local fishermen and after you work up an appetite, lunch will be served on board.
Six Senses prides itself on its cornerstones of sustainability and environmentalism. To leave a lasting impression on the island, guests are given the opportunity to plant a tree at the resort's herb garden.
Dine on one of 10 terraced decks of weathered teak and bamboo overlooking the water. Dining on the Rocks, located on-site, is the signature restaurant of Six Senses and presents contemporary cuisine paired with superior service.
The spa treatments at Six Senses are diverse and plentiful. Ask your butler to book an outdoor massage in your own private sala after a detoxifying seaweed body wrap or aromatic marine salt scrub.

As the tap water in most areas of Thailand is generally not potable, your best bet is to purchase and drink only bottled water. Most restaurants offer it on the menu as well. If you're experiencing a language barrier, ask for nam kowat, a bottled water.
You've likely encountered Singha, Tiger or Chang. These beers are all brewed locally in Thailand and available everywhere you look. Try the Tiger, an Asian lager, with a spicy dish or a Chang, a malt brew, if you're in the mood for something a little heavier.
Lined with plenty of coconut trees ripe for picking and dazzling white sand, the beaches of Mae Nam and most anywhere on the South Coast are choice spots for a quiet day near the water. The tides here are typically calm.
For most of the year, you can expect typical tropical conditions that are warm, clear and humid. Monsoon season generally runs from September through November, when brief, occasional storms bring replenishing showers. However, this season is still full of sunny days.
