Eco Tours on Koh Samui from ShaSa Resorts

Let the ShaSa Resorts take you on an unforgettable Eco Tour. The memories will last a lifetime.

Koh Samui island is an amazing holiday destination, yet there’s far more to it than the sun, sand and sea you’ll experience at ShaSa Resorts. Koh Samui is also an epic natural wonder, full of incredible hidden treasures that are just waiting to be discovered. Due to its verdant and hilly nature, an eco tour/elephant trek is the ultimate way to discover just how magnificent Koh Samui’s nature really is.
From your base at ShaSa Resorts, you’ll be able to explore the incredible flora and fauna that Koh Samui has to offer in a way that’s responsible and doesn’t impact or disturb its fragile ecological environment.

Elephant Trekking

The might elephant is one of the icons of Thailand, a symbol of the Royal Family and the pride of all Thais. The center of Koh Samui is just one huge lush green tropical rain forest and it’s just moments away from Shasa Resorts – explore this hidden paradise in the most traditional way. The elephant trekking tour takes you deep into the jungle, through rivers and clearings, past many exciting sights on the way. The elephants are incredibly gentle, yet nothing will get in their way! Finally, at the end of the tour, you’ll get to visit the magical Namuang waterfall, where you’ll be able to dismount your ride and cool off in the fresh waters.

Jungle Safari Tour

The full day jungle safari tour from ShaSa Resorts lives up to its promise of off-the-beaten-track adventure like nothing else! You’ll get to do everything you could possibly expect to do on a jungle safari, including riding elephants through the jungle, then jump into a jeep and race through rough jungle terrain up to the summit of the highest peak on the island for a truly spectacular photo opportunity – where else can you get a shot of the entire island in just one pic?

You’ll also be able to see Koh Samui’s most famous mummified monk, visit the Magic Buddha Gardens and then go to visit a rubber tree farm and see how rubber is collected and processed, before you are whisked safely back to ShaSa Resorts. All in all, this is a great tour for anyone who wants to see the other side of Koh Samui, away from the tourist hot spots.

Nine in One Safari Tour

This tour is an extensive full day program that will leave you totally exhilarated. Depart from ShaSa Resorts in the morning and see it all in a non-stop ride of adventure and fun, beginning with elephant trekking through coconut plantations and tropical rainforest, followed by an amazing monkey show where you’ll get to see how the farmers train monkeys to retrieve coconuts for them. After that, we’ll get to see a local rice farmer at his farm and see how he uses water buffalo to plough his rice fields, before embarking on a ox cart ride through the fields. Next up is a fantastic Thai cooking show, where you’ll learn exactly how the famous Som Tam papaya salad is made. Feel free to try some but be warned – it’s spicy stuff!

Once we’re done cooking, ShaSa Resorts guests get to pile into jeeps and head deep into the jungle highlands at the center of Koh Samui. The ride takes us to an authentic rubber farm where you’ll get to see how farmers extract latex from rubber trees and even try doing it for yourself. Following that, we’ll go for a walk through some lush green jungle that culminates in the awesome Namuang Waterfall, where you’ll be free to take a dip in any of the numerous refreshing natural pools and cool off.

Finally, we top it all off by jumping into some canoes and paddling through stunning mangrove forests and see Koh Samui at its most tranquil, before returning back to our luxury ShaSa resorts for a well-earned rest.
