Finding Wellness In A Little Slice Of Paradise
Koh Samui is becoming an increasingly popular destination for health and wellness enthusiasts. With stunning beaches, crystal-clear seas, and beautiful forested hills as well as a range of fabulous health and wellness resorts, it’s not hard to see why.
Located off the southeast coast, Koh Samui is the second largest of Thailand’s many islands. It has excellent access for tourists, with non-stop flights from Bangkok taking around 60 minutes and departing hourly throughout the day. The airport is also international, with direct flights to Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and China.
Health-conscious travellers will find that the palm-fringed island is the perfect destination not only for the classic beach holiday, but also to indulge in a soothing wellness retreat, with great healthy food options, an abundance of activities, such as yoga and hiking to try out, and a beautiful, peaceful atmosphere.

If there were ever a place to remain forever, it would be Baan Kilee. Located on Koh Samui’s unspoiled western coast, the 8-bedroom sanctuary sits on 1.5 acres and 30-metres of beach frontage on the white sands of Lipa Noi, one of Koh Samui’s few year-round swimming beaches. Dedicated to family and wellness, Baan Kilee is an unparalleled retreat for the entire family, no matter how young or old. The fully accessible property comes with a vast 22-metre infinity pool ideal for relaxing on its sunken pool loungers, playing water polo, or simply enjoying some laps as the sun comes up. A second pool lies to the side and you can enjoy a drink at the swim up bar or even an outdoor movie as this sunken pool comes complete with a pull-down projector. A shaded sala too is wonderful for all-day dining and lounging, while the massage deck is ideal for your mid-day spa treatment. There is a world-class gym on-site, and everything from private Muay Thai lessons to spa treatments can be organised by the Villa Manager and concierge team.
The View Samui Cliffside is a magnificent piece of work and, as the name suggests, the view is nothing short of spectacular. And did we mention the property comes with an incredible infinity pool and jacuzzi? The View opens up to Taling Ngam beach, which is considered a less touristy beach in Koh Samui. Guests can enjoy snorkelling and kayaking any time of day. Or, try walking to the end of the pier and jumping off - it makes for the ultimate Instagram shot! Keep fit with a session of Yoga and Muay Thai by the yoga deck, or work up a sweat at the villa’s private gym. At the end of the day enjoy a relaxing massage at the dedicated sala, overlooking the ocean.
