The popular Thai island also provides couples with many opportunities to spend time together while enjoying exciting escapades. Listed below are our favorite activities for romantic bliss in Samui, such as private dining experiences, sunset cruises, and relaxing spa treatments.


    Private beach picnic

    Your private beach picnic excursion begins when your guide picks you up at your hotel and transports you to Thong Krut Pier. Here, you board a long-tail boat to explore the Gulf of Thailand. Feel free to stop along the way to snorkel in the turquoise water.

Relax on the beach while your guide prepares your picnic. Local specialties are prepared right in front of you, allowing you to see how each dish is made. After your private picnic, you can relax on the beach for a while before heading back to Koh Samui.
