Meliá Koh Samui launches getaways designed to strengthen family bonds

Luxury beachfront resort Meliá Koh Samui has introduced packages designed to reconnect loved ones and foster quality family time, combining a getaway in a remarkable Family Suite with a host of recreational, culinary and wellness experiences for all ages.

The Family Escape and Family Fun and Wellbeing packages are on offer at the resort’s 105sqm Family Suites that each feature a master bedroom and double sofa bed for two children, large living area and private balcony overlooking a 1600sqm lagoon pool that meanders through the resort’s lush grounds like a river, as well as games including Jenga, Othello, Rubik, tic-tac-toe and dominos.

In addition to a stay for two adults and two children in a Family Suite, the Family Escape package also includes an educational workshop that instructs the kids on how to create traditional Batik textile art at the resort’s two-storey Kid’s Club called Kidsdom, housed in a refurbished teak wood merchant vessel situated adjacent to an outdoor playground and mini waterpark.

Priced at THB 4800 (USD 154) net per room per night for a minimum of two nights, Family Escape also includes free daily ice-cream for the kids, a 20 percent discount on food and beverage at the resort’s dining outlets including Breeza Beach Restaurant and Bar with a terrace overlooking Choeng Mon Beach, and 50 percent off the price of all treatments at YHI Spa.

As part of the long stay Family Fun and Wellbeing package that also includes a stay for two adults and two children in a Family Suite and a round-trip airport transfer from Samui International Airport, the parents are treated to a wellness consultation at YHI Spa, 90-minute firm healing massage, facials, reiki and meditation. An edutainment programme at the Kid’s Club — jam-packed with activities ranging from active pursuits such as animal yoga and splash dance to creative workshops including coconut leaf creation and painting with nature — is complimentary for the kids.

Priced at THB 29,999 (USD 966) net for seven nights, making for a 40 percent discount on room rates, Family Fun and Wellbeing also comprises a daily food and beverage credit of THB 500 (USD 16), ice-cream for the kids, cotton candy each afternoon, and a 20 percent discount on food and beverage at the resort’s dining outlets.

A further five percent discount is applied to the Family Fun and Wellbeing package for bookings of at least 14 nights, with a further 10 percent discount applicable for bookings for 30 nights or more.

“Inspired by the simple yet all-too-important need to escape from the hassle of daily life, particularly amid what has been a very challenging year due to the global pandemic, we wanted to introduce experiences that focus on the fact that family is everything,” said the resort’s general manager Ernesto Osuna.

Other world-class facilities at Meliá Koh Samui include a two-level infinity pool with in-water sun lounges and sunken seating areas, a swim-up bar, an executive lounge, KoKo Kitchen, a fitness centre, and ballroom and conference facilities. The resort offers complimentary use of foam floats for the lagoon and infinity pools.

The family-orientated packages are available until December 23 this year. To contact Meliá Koh Samui or to make a booking, please call +6677 938 899 or email
