Do you need a break from work, the hubby, kids or just a breather from the busyness of life? Gather your best pals and head away for a girls’ trip! And, if you’re not sure where to go, we have one recommendation: Thailand’s sunny island of Koh Samui, and the InterContinental Koh Samui Resort. Here’s what you can look forward to at this fab five-star beach resort.
#1 Chill at the AirBar
Enjoy gorgeous sunset views to the smooth sounds of live saxophone and guitar. Overlooking the Gulf of Thailand, this incredible cliffside bar is the perfect backdrop to wrap up your day, whether it’s the first of your holiday or the last. Sink in one of the comfy loungers, sip on a cocktail (or two!) paired with tasty canapés. After sunset, head to Flames for a delicious beachfront BBQ or to Amber for a hearty themed buffet dinner.
#2 Pamper yourself with a massage
Indulge in a relaxing massage or other luxurious treatments at the resort’s spa. Choose from a refreshing body scrub, Thai herb bath, pressure point massage, a Thai traditional massage and more.
#3 Yoga on the pier
Stretch your way into relaxation and get in holiday mode with a morning yoga class over the beautiful azure waters of the Gulf of Thailand. After class ends, leap off the private pier into the refreshing waters – or head to Amber restaurant and dig into a gourmet buffet breakfast!
#4 Whip up cocktails
Become a mixologist on your tropical vacation and return home with a new skill to impress your dinner guests. Take a cocktail class with the resort’s five-star bar team while enjoying beautiful views of the Gulf of Thailand and the surrounding coconut jungle. The class is perfectly timed so you can enjoy your cocktail creations as you watch the sun set.
#5 Take part in a fun cooking class
Don’t miss experiencing an authentic culinary experience during your stay. Travel to a local market with Chef Tao to pick up ingredients and whip up delicious dishes unique to Thailand. After all the hard work, settle down to enjoy your creations overlooking the ocean.
#6 Indulge in an in-villa barbecue
Take exclusive dining to the ultimate level and enjoy a private dining experience with your girlfriends in the privacy of your villa. The sumptuous eats on offer include lobster, squid, king prawns and Australian Black Angus beef grilled to perfection. Sip a sunset cocktail at the Air Bar, with its astonishing ocean views, while the culinary team sets up your private barbecue and charcoal grill. Those in a three-bedroom residence can have the barbecue set up by the pool. There are a variety of menus, one to suit every palate and preference.
#7 Or have a beach barbecue on a private island
Treat yourself to the ultimate picnic experience in paradise. You get to choose the location and the InterContinental Samui team takes care of the rest. Between dips in the turquoise water in your very own slice of ocean, you’ll snack on gourmet mini sandwiches as the team grills prime cuts of meat and seafood to perfection. You’ll also indulge in a selection of premium cheeses, freshly baked bread and tropical fruit, served with chilled champagne and juices. Swim, relax and live the luxury island lifestyle!
