Koh Samui, Thailand

Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui invites guests to experience the best of island life this holiday season. Heartwarming festivities, indulgent dining, special performances, and spa pampering are set to elevate the holiday mood. The Resort kicks off the year-end celebration with bright lights and dazzling energy, offering myriad reasons to reconnect with loved ones on one of Thailand’s most scenic islands. “What better place to embrace the festive spirit with family and friends, letting the warmth of our island’s culture inspire you to make a difference in the place we proudly call home,” smiles Jasjit Assi, General Manager. He highlights the themes of unity, appreciation, and creating lasting memories while giving back to the community and honouring their beautiful homeland. Whether soaking in expansive ocean vistas from the all-pool villas nestled along the lush tropical hillside or enjoying thrilling beachside experiences, the Resort focuses on family-first celebrations. Guests are promised a memorable end to 2024 and a joyful beginning to the New Year, filled with bigger smiles and cherished moments.

Sustainable and Community-Focused Festivities

“This year’s festive theme continues our commitment to sustainability while paying homage to the island’s rich agricultural heritage,” says Shivan Pillay, Director of Rooms and Residences. The rice plants and flowers cultivated by the Resort’s gardening team, led by Thada Whasakool, Sustainability Manager, alongside students, will be used to adorn the Resort’s Christmas tree, symbolizing growth and the nurturing of traditions. After the festive season, the rice plants will be transferred to an organic rice farm on the island, where they will continue to grow and be harvested in the future. The flowers will be returned to the schools and temples, beautifying the spaces for the students to enjoy, and fostering a deeper connection to their community and environment.

Gastronomic Delights

The culinary experience through December and January, curated by Executive Chef Ruslan Shipunov, provides the much-needed festive cheer. Fresh seafood, sustainable produce, and prime cuts of meat are the theme this year as the restaurants come alive with delectable dining experiences. The festivities begin in true island style with Fisherman's Christmas Eve at Main Beach - a Christmas beach BBQ featuring freshly caught seafood, Christmas roasts, and grilled meats, complemented by live music, fire spinners, fireworks, and Thai-inspired cocktails.

Tam Rab Thai at Koh Thai Kitchen showcases the diverse flavours of Thailand through a tantalizing Thai dinner buffet, where live traditional dance performances and local crafts on display create the perfect setting. “Welcome the new year with an electrifying Neon Full Moon Party Beach Countdown,” smiles Assi. “Experience an unforgettable night with vibrant music, dazzling neon lights, and excitement. Enjoy signature neon-inspired cocktails and celebrate in style. At midnight, a breathtaking fireworks display will illuminate the night sky as you raise a glass of Champagne to toast the new year.”

The spirits are high at CoCoRum with Sax Sunset every Wednesday, with soothing melodies of live saxophone music as guests watch the sunset over the horizon, and Electric Sundowner every Friday night, setting an upbeat mood. “Enjoy the allure of our tropical paradise as our intriguing violinist tunes into the dramatic sunset at our poolside bar. Do not forget to sample the carefully crafted tiki-inspired cocktails,” says Bar Manager Thom Geerts, who has curated a menu of mezcal and tequila cocktails paired with signature cigars to set guests up for fantastic evenings by the poolside.

Kids and Teens For All Seasons

At the Resort, young guests are never an afterthought, as a full itinerary of fun experiences will keep them engaged throughout their vacation. “Children can take advantage of the Resort’s tropical surroundings with a variety of outdoor adventures, themed parties, and creative activities,” shares Resort Manager Hannes Schneider. The highlights of the season include the Fisherman’s Christmas Eve Party and Under the Sea Christmas Day Children’s Party, promising an oceanic adventure with mermaids, dolphins, and a visit from Santa in his aquatic sleigh. At the Neon New Year’s Eve Celebration, children can enjoy neon face painting, glow-in-the-dark games, and an art station for luminescent creations. “Parents can relax, knowing that their children are in good hands and are perhaps having more fun than the adults!" Schneider smiles. Teens For All Seasons invites young adventurers to explore a world of exciting outdoor activities, sports, and water-themed parties. “Our initiative offers a wide array of outdoor fun, from thrilling Muay Thai boxing and tennis tournaments to air hockey showdowns and beach table tennis battles. There’s something for everyone. Come join us for an unforgettable, action-packed experience.”

Festive Rejuvenation

“No vacation is complete without self-care,” asserts Director of Spa Kotchaphan Mekloy. The Secret Garden Spa offers the perfect solace and holistic well-being, promoting balance in consciousness and natural elements, aligning with the Spa's commitment to sustainability through the traditional Thai philosophy of “Tard Chao Ruan.”

The team recommends Festive Rejuvenation Specials that allow guests to celebrate this season by embracing the spirit of earth energy. Indulge in the Rice for Life 120-minute treatment, which includes a jade gua sha facial and full-body massage. Return to roots with the Tree of Life, featuring a homemade coconut scrub and warm coconut oil massage. Embrace the Miracle Moringa sustainable treatment, crafted from farm to face, where warm moringa oil is poured over the body to detoxify and enhance long massage strokes, followed by a clear quartz gua sha facial and mask to detox and reset.

Celebrate the festive spirit with the Ancient Siam Herbal body and facial treatment, which includes a detoxifying herbal mask and a light-pressure facial poultice made from Secret Garden ingredients. Combined with rose quartz gua sha, this treatment pairs anti-ageing and skin-renewing benefits, deepening connection and leaving one rejuvenated. For those seeking an active getaway, training at the hill-top Muay Thai ring with panoramic views of the Gulf of Thailand can be a thrilling experience. “Afterward, head over to the spa for a rejuvenating Muay Thai Recovery experience,” says Mekloy.
