Kirsty S's City Tips

  • Most taxis on Ko Samui tend not to have meters so you’ll have to bargain with the driver. Ask at your hotel how much average journeys should cost and always agree on a fare upfront.
  • The best time to visit Ko Samui is from December to June when you’ll avoid any heavy rainfall and it’s hot, but not too hot.
  • Anniversary? Popping the question? If you’re planning an extra special night out, call ahead and let your restaurant know. Most owners and staff in Ko Samui will go out of their way to ensure your night is one to remember.

    What could be more romantic than a pampering spa day for two? There are a number of spa resorts in Ko Samui, but for sheer tranquility and scenic surroundings, the Tamarind Springs Forest Spa at Lamai is your best bet. Enjoy a day of peace and quiet amid a tropical setting and feel the stresses of life melt away and the romance creep back in...

    Tips
    • Tamarind Springs sits off the main road between Lamai and Chaweng. Ensure your driver takes you to the correct spa as many earn commissions by taking tourists to certain spas.

    Situated inside the Six Senses resort, Dining on the Rocks does exactly what it says on the tin, plus a whole lot more besides! This is one of the most romantic places to have dinner on the island; you and your loved one can dine on a terraced deck under a blanket of stars with views across the ocean. The menu offers ‘new Asian cuisine with a crossover accent’, but all you really need to know is that it’s simply delicious.

    Ko Samui is an island so be sure to get out on the water with your loved one. Kayaking presents the ideal couples’ adventure day trip and Blue Stars Kayaking are one of the best on the island to offer this type of tour. You’ll be taken by boat to the best kayaking spots around the Ang Thong National Marine Park, exploring hidden lagoons and drifting through coves while admiring all that beautiful natural scenery.

    The couple who cook together stay together. (At least I think that’s how the saying goes!) Learn how to prepare and cook your favorite Thai dishes by having a cooking class with the talented and ever-patient chef, Pai. She’ll explain everything in a simple way and make it easy for you to recreate the dishes back home.

    Dedicate a whole day to the jaw-dropping beauty of the islands of the Ang Thong National Park. Covered in lush jungle inland, the park’s islands feature stunning stretches of sand lapped by clear, turquoise waters. Ko Wua Talap is home to the park headquarters and it’s from here that you and your loved one can climb up to a spectacular viewpoint offering panoramic views across the islands. Scenery like this is surely what enticed you to Thailand in the first place, so this is a must-do!

    If it’s a peaceful and secluded slice of paradise you’re after, a visit to Bang Po Beach is just the thing. Ditch the bustling party beaches for the day and opt for this narrow strip of white sand fringed with coconut palms. There’s a chilled out bar and restaurant to keep you fed and watered, but the beach is free from crowds, jetskis, sailboats and vendors, making it the perfect spot for a romantic day on the beach.
