Beautiful sea views and an eclectic activity programme can be found from this upmarket eco sanctuary’s secluded location on Koh Samui.
Silvadee Resort is located just a short drive from Chaweng and Lamai but tucked away from the busy main beach on its own, private mini-peninsula with its serene, enclosed beach.
The sprawling resort of luxury villas is embedded into the cliffside, with rooms located neatly beside emerging boulders that are incorporated into the design. The effect is that some of the villas seem to float out into the water. Two elegant infinity pools seem to extend out into the ocean.
There is a range of room options with escalating luxurious features, some with private jacuzzis and stunning panoramic views. Whereas the resort design is sleek and stylish in muted grey colours for effortlessly elegant simplicity, the rooms themselves are warmer and welcoming with teak wood furnishing and handmade Thai textiles.
The activities programme at Silavadee is refreshingly unique, including classes in pranayama (ocean breathing), origami, and temple visits to earn merit with monks.
Despite that wellness spin with the on-site spa also attracting rave views, the resort comes alive in the evening as the rooftop bar dishes out cocktails accompanied by live music. Several restaurants offer oceanside dining catering to a range of tastes, all with beautiful terraces to watch those mesmerising sunsets.
Free kayaks and diving equipment are available for rental if you feel like getting out and exploring the ocean. The crystal clear waters around Koh Samui are known for their abundant, multicoloured marine life to explore.
