As Thailand starts to come out of lockdown from the pandemic and reopens to international tourists, Melia Koh Samui has introduced a getaway that makes the most of its beachfront setting, family-friendly facilities, dining and spa.

The resort’s Samui, I Miss You package coincides with Thailand’s Test and Go program that permits quarantine-free travel to the country for fully vaccinated travelers from 63 countries deemed low risk.

The Samui, I Miss You package offers special room rates, starting from $105 per night in a lead-in Deluxe Room with 3- and 7-night packages on offer.

Included in the package are: daily breakfast for two, a free stay for up to two children aged under 12 years with complimentary daily breakfast, a 20 percent discount on food and non-alcoholic beverages and a 50 percent discount on YHI Spa treatments are among the offer’s array of inclusions.

The three- and seven-night packages also come with a guaranteed upgrade to a Premium Pool Access Room, early check-in and late check-out, a complimentary roundtrip airport transfer from Samui International Airport and either a 60-minute Thai massage or one tapas set lunch for two. The 7-night getaway’s extra perks for two include a 90-minute spa treatment, one tapas set lunch and a daily cocktail. For the spa treatment, guests canselect either a Thai massage, aromatherapy massage, or facial massage.

A standalone bathtub on a private balcony is a highlight of the resort’s Deluxe Rooms. The Premium Pool Access Rooms feature a separate bathtub and shower, with large private balcony access to the lagoon pool that meanders through the resort’s grounds like a river.

Overlooking Choeng Mon Beach, Melia Koh Samui’s complimentary recreational and wellness pursuits range from kayaking and aqua exercise classes to gentle flow yoga and walking meditation at a massage river; a reflexology path situated between the infinity pool and lagoon pool.

Adjacent to an outdoor playground and mini waterpark featuring a shallow pool, slide, mushroom fountain and giant tipping bucket, is the kids club—Kidsdom— offering daily activities such as batik painting, super hero art, animal yoga, face painting, coconut leaf creation, nature discovery, play dough creation, mask making and Lego time. The hotel’s elephant mascot, Coco, visits daily and shares cotton candy with youngsters.

The onsite eatery, The Breeza Beach Restaurant & Bar, is focused on contemporary Thai dishes as well as Western and Mediterranean cuisine and anchors the resort’s dining landscape. And, blending ancient Asian wisdom with modern wellness techniques, YHI Spa offers a broad spectrum of treatments including massages, scrubs, wraps and facials, based on organic Thai wellness brand HARNN’s products.

Test & Go

Under Thailand’s Test and Go program, fully vaccinated travelers traveling by air from countries deemed low risk are required to do a COVID-19 test upon arrival to Thailand. With a negative result, travelers are allowed to freely travel anywhere in Thailand. Guests who stay at Melia Koh Samui on the first day of arrival in Thailand will be charged an additional $66 for the RT-PCR test as required by the Thai authorities.

The Samui, I Miss You package must be booked directly with the resort by Dec. 31, 2021 by e-mailing reservation.kohsamui@melia.com for a stays until March 31, 2022.
