Nestling among coconut and cashew groves fringing golden sands, the Napasai offers a peaceful, tropical hideaway on Koh Samui's northern shore. Stand-alone villas are dotted throughout the 43 acres of flower-filled gardens offering privacy and seclusion. Their airy bamboo interiors, enriched with vibrant, indigenous fabrics, open onto sun drenched balconies and views of the sparkling sea. Each even features its own open-air massage sala.
These expansive villas and residences - combined with a wealth of thoughtfully-curated activities - make the Napasai an attractive option for visitors of all ages and persuasions. Acquire a new skill with a Thai cookery, language or photography class, or perhaps embrace the physical and mental agility required for Thai boxing. Further energy can be expended on the tennis courts, or closer to the water with windsurfing and hobie cat sailing. The watersports centre opens up further opportunities to explore the coastline by kayak or paddleboard. Below the waterline, dive into a world of drifting rays, turtles and colourful butterfly and parrotfish with the resort's PADI certified experts.Meanwhile, those in search of a slower pace can absorb the sea views from the infinity pool or unwind in the spa, where soothing scrubs, massages and wraps are enriched with natural plant extracts to heal and restore.
Days at the resort can play out however you choose, beginning with an energising yoga class, for example, followed by a rewarding breakfast in Lai Thai, where omelettes and juices are made to order. This restaurant opens throughout the day, and makes generous use of the aromatic herbs and spices from the resort's garden in delicious creations such as seafood glass noodles and fragrant curries. The Beach restaurant serves freshly barbecued meat and fish dishes in a sublime setting on the soft sands. As the sun sets on another memorable day in this blissful corner of Samui, the Infinity bar provides the perfect venue for sundowner cocktails.
