Area Excursions

Each day, Anantara features a range of organised and do-it-yourself area excursions that let you see beyond the boundaries of Koh Samui resorts.

Angthong Marine National Park Trip

Enjoy a light breakfast before skimming across the Gulf of Siam by speedboat. Just moments away from our Koh Samui Bophut resort you can marvel at over 40 idyllic islands in the protected nature reserve, ranging in size from mere rocks in the deep blue sea to paradise islets with stunning white sands. Stop off at Koh Wao, where a shallow sheltered bay offers ideal snorkelling snorkeling, then choose to swim in crystal clear waters or kayak to nearby Koh Lak.

Wat Plai Laem and the Big Buddha Temple

Discover Wat Plai Laem and the Big Buddha Temple, the island’s most evocative cultural treasures. Surrounded by a lake and home to a striking 18-arm statue of Guanyin, Wat Plai Laem is an active Chinese-Thai temple. Guanyin is the goddess of mercy and compassion as well as a fertility goddess, and many people come here to petition her help in bearing healthy children.

Nearby, Wat Phra Yai—also known as the Big Buddha Temple—sits on a small rocky island off the northeast corner of Samui. Its golden, 12-metre Buddha statue was built in 1972 and remains one of the island’s most popular attractions.


Spend an afternoon or quiet morning on the greens at the nearby Santiburi Country Club, one of Koh Samui’s golfing highlights. This par 72 course nestled in the hills in the northern reaches of Samui is set amidst coconut gardens and features views of the ocean from nearly every one of its 18 challenging holes. Between Bophut and Chaweng you can also find a 250 yard driving range.

Historic & Cultural Tours

Historic & Cultural Tours

Make the most of Anantara's unique location at the heart of one of the world's most intriguing destinations. Local experts and guides will take you on an up-close exploration of some of the island's most evocative and unique cultural and historic treasures, providing in-depth explanations of their significance to Thailand and the region. Discover gleaming forest temples, "Big" Buddhist shrines, a "secret garden" and more as you wander Samui, exploring its hidden treasures and natural wonders. Tell us what you want to see – we'll make sure you get there.

Koh Tao & Koh Nang Yaun Snorkeling Trip

The small, uncrowded islands of Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan offer a world of natural wonders both above and below sea level. As one of Southeast Asia’s most hallowed dive sites, a colourful underwater world awaits, teeming with life. Between dives, the quiet islands allow you to climb up through a rich jungle interior in order to reach a remarkable viewpoint of the palm tree-laced coast and azure seas of the Gulf of Thailand.

Mountain Tour by Land Rover

Venture off the beaten track to explore the lush greenery, stunning virgin rainforest, inland temples and diverse Koh Samui wildlife that are otherwise inaccessible. Our well-outfitted Land Rover will take you and up to five other friends or family members into the heart of this bejewelled isle.

Boat Tours & Cruises

Boat Tours & Cruises

From romantic sunset sailing to all-day snorkelling expeditions, there’s no better way to experience the magic of Koh Samui than by boat. You can don a mask and snorkel to explore colourful sea life, glide across the surface of the water in a kayak or just relax with a sunset dinner at sea or cocktail cruise. Whether you’re an adventure-seeker or leisure-lover, we have an ocean experience perfect for you.

Shopping & Handicrafts Tours

Shopping & Handicrafts Tours

Exquisite Thai silks, local handicrafts, solid teakwood furniture, textiles, cotton clothing and handmade jewellery are just some of the hidden treasures you’ll discover at local markets and shops on Koh Samui. Scour the island for the best finds and best deals, and don’t be afraid to bargain.

Quad Biking

Explore Koh Samui behind the tourist scenes and off the beaten track, riding along trails through the island’s unspoiled mountainous interior, past coconut, rubber and fruit plantations, and beautiful waterfalls.

Canopy Ride

Soar through the jungle canopy, enjoying an adrenalin pumping ride between seven tree top stations with amazing views. Then set off on a jungle safari to reach a scenic waterfall, where you can relax and take a refreshing dip. 

Cruise in style

Cruise in style

Discover breathtaking island diversity as you set sail on a luxury chartered yacht; Minor Affair. We’ll take you on a 60 feet Sunseeker for an intimate cruise of up to twelve guests to see exotic beaches and offshore islands in uncompromised style.
