Samui Temple Tour

We take a tour of the most spectacular and most culturally important temples (Wat’s) on Koh Samui.   First we visit Wat Plai Laem Temple famous for its large Chinese Buddha overlooking the entire temple complex. Next we go the Big Buddha Temple, Samui’s most famous landmark. From there we go to the ancient temple, named Wat Samret.  Lastly we visit the ‘Mummified Monk’ at Wat Khao Po, to learn the story of the monk who attained enlightenment.

Morning Market Experience

It is the local custom of Thai people to go to the market in the early morning to source ingredients for daily family meals. You will experience the hustle and bustle, the excitement and smells, of this vibrant place. Immerse yourself in the Thai daily lifestyle and savour a tasty, local Thai morning dish such as rice porridge or local coffee with Chinese doughnuts.

Mountain Bike Trip

On a clear & beautiful Samui morning it’s great to start the day with a mountain bike trip. Brush away the cobwebs and enjoy the local atmosphere on Samui as you cycle off from the resort to explore the island.

We start from the lobby and meander through the streets of of Plai Laem Village. You will stop and visit such sights as Big Buddha, Cheongmon Beach, Plai Laem Temple, and also our resort’s herbal gardens. Enjoy the scenery of the village and learn more about Samui people and their lifestyle.

Thai Boxing: Muay Thai

Muay Thai is a form of martial art that is both graceful and lethal. Used since ancient times, Muay Thai has become an integral part of Thailand’s cultural heritage. Learn Thai boxing from a professional trainer, teaching the basics of Thai style fighting through to advanced techniques for those that are experienced.

Ocean Excursions

Large variety of ocean based activies

There are many activies which can be done on the waters of the Gulf of Thailand

We offer a large variety of ocean based activies which range from private boat hire, fishing trips, kayaking, hobie-catamaran excursions, sunset cruises and island hopping.

Ang Thong Marine Park

Most of the islands consist of limestone mountains about 10-400 meters above sea level. Because the limestone can change its structure easily, by both chemical condition and weather, this causes the islands to have many strange-looking caves and cliffs. Indeed, some islands look like ancient Angkor Wat in Cambodia and Prasart Hin Pimai in Thailand’s north-east province. In the national park you can enjoy snorkeling and also find a quiet beach on which to relax and have lunch.

Private Fishing Trip by Fisherman

Enjoy fishing the Thai way. A Thai fishing boat will take you to the designated fishing areas where you can fish with the local fishermen. Lunch will be served on board.

Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan

Ko Tao (which translates to 'Turtle Island') is an island located near the eastern shore of the Gulf of Thailand. It covers an area of about 21 square kilometers.

Administratively, it forms a Tambon (Region) within the district Amphoe Ko Pha Ngan of Surat Thani Province. In 2006 the official population number was just 1,382 people.

Kho Tao was named by its first settlers for the island’s turtle-like geographic shape. Coincidentally, the island is an important breeding ground for Hawksbill turtles

Diving

Explore the underwater world in the Gulf of Thailand with us. Whether you are an experienced diver or a beginner, 100 Degrees East is the only diving center that we recommend. They provide professional, safe service, and they can come to your own villa to discuss your diving needs.

With a fast, safe and reliable dive boat, steering you clear of the crowds at the dive sites, it is comfortable and uncrowded, with the maximum number of divers limited to only 10.

Thai Wedding

For a truly memorable occasion the Thai traditional wedding begins with a hair and makeup appointment for the bride and assistance for both, the bride and groom, for fitting the classic Thai costume. The next step is a long drum parade from the villa to the ceremony area. This is a traditional way of beginning to celebrate your special day. Once at the ceremony area the Buddhist monks will arrive and receive the bride and groom.

After the monks have taken their places the bride and groom begin by sitting in front of the Buddha image, lighting candles and joss sticks, and offering these as a way of paying homage to Buddha and Buddhism. The monks then begin to chant and the bride and groom are led through the ritual chanting by a prayer leader. During the chanting, a yarn garland is placed on the bride and groom’s head and connected to the monks. At the end of the chanting the head monk will sprinkle the bridal couple and guests with the now holy water. The bridal couple is anointed by the monk on their forehead.

The second part of the ceremony is known as the Rot Naam ceremony, or lustral water ceremony. During this ceremony the bridal couple sits facing their guests who take turns to pour holy water over the hands of the bridal couple as a symbolic gesture of showing their good wishes for the newly married couple.

Hideaway Wedding

The Hideaway Wedding ensures that your wedding at Six Senses Samui is truly an occasion to remember and a special day to enjoy as a couple or to share with family and friends.

The ceremony itself comprises of a truly indulgent array of tropical flowers decorating the venue area, adding to that special sense of occasion.

A photographer will also be on hand to record all the memories created during your special day. We provide you with a beautifully presented digital copy of all photographs on CD ROM.
