Thailand has so many beautiful locales perfect for a lovers’ sojourn and Koh Samui definitely makes the list. It’s a gorgeous island which has a lively market, restaurant and bar scene, as well as relaxing, exclusive and tranquil beachfront retreats.
Amari Koh Samui is one such resort, located on one of Koh Samui’s most famous beaches, Chaweng Beach, overlooking the glittering waters of the Gulf of Thailand. The resort is currently undergoing renovations and will re-open in April 2016 with stunning new accommodation and dining options.
Couples will be able to choose from 197 rooms across three wings, decorated exquisitely in Thai-style decor, many featuring private balconies or private terraces with magnificent views of the beach.

The beaches of Thailand are a major travel drawcard but for the gourmands amongst us, there’s no doubt that one of the best things about a getaway to Thailand is the food.
Amari’s glamorous new restaurant, Amaya Food Gallery, boasts an array of Asian and international cuisines, taking inspiration from Asian street foods. If that doesn’t take your fancy, try Italian favourites at Prego such as wood-fired pizzas and handmade pasta or a quiet coffee and pastry at Amaya Café.
Explore the must-see sights in Koh Samui such as Grandfather and Grandmother rock (look it up on Google Images), the Samui Snake Farm and Angthong Marine National Park and unwind of an evening in one of the jacuzzis at Amari or the new Breeze Spa.
