Exploring Koh Samui

Get the most out of your Koh Samui adventure by staying at the ShaSa Resort. 

            When visiting a beautiful place like Koh Samui, it’s best to stay in a resort that has everything you can ask for, like the ShaSa Resort. With the numerous things that you can do in Koh Samui, it would be terribly hard and inconvenient for you to contact so many different people to look for what to do, arrange the necessary transportation, and even looking for the best places to eat. Rest assured! ShaSa Resort is the best place for you if you seek total relaxation as well as an adventure to remember. ShaSa Resort can arrange different tours and activities that will showcase what Koh Samui has to offer, keeping in mind your personal interests as well. They can help you when it comes to exploring Koh Samui.
Koh Samui is an island that’s very rich in natural resources. One of the things that tourists go to in the island is the white sand beach with a diverse marine wildlife found underwater. However, beaches are not the only sights to see. The culture in Koh Samui is very palpable and is especially seen in the numerous temples on the island. Aside from this, if you want to see the lush greenery, Elephant Trekking is the thing to do. Here you can see the island’s jungle while riding on an elephant’s back. At the end of the action-packed day, fret not as there are a lot of excellent and comfortable accommodations, such as ShaSa Resort, that will pamper you and make sure you get a good night’s sleep.

            To be able to maximize your beach experience to the fullest, it’s best to choose a resort located on the beach, just like ShaSa Resort, so you can walk on the white sand or watch the waves crash whenever you please. Whether you’re into having fun in the sun or taking a moonlit stroll on the beach with your partner, as long as you stay in a resort located on a beach, anything is possible. Kayaking and other water sports can be done as well, and in places like ShaSa Resort, they offer these amenities.

            Just like in the other islands of Thailand, sightseeing is great to do in Koh Samui. Most of the sights that you will see in Koh Samui are related, in one way or another, to Buddha. This, along with the prevalence of temples, shows the culture of Thais: they’re very religious and spiritual. Although seeing the sights can be very exciting, it can often get tiring too, especially if you have to hop from one place to another and constantly look for transportation that will take you around. Luckily, resorts like ShaSa Resort can take care of these kinds of things for you so you can see and enjoy the sights without being frazzled.

            Stress-free yet adventurous vacations are a reality if you choose the right resorts to stay in, such as ShaSa Resort. If you want to enjoy your Koh Samui vacation, be sure to stay in a resort that’s not only beautiful and well maintained, but one that will allow you to experience the wonderful beaches and will arrange for other things you’d like to see and do. Exploring Koh Samui is bound to be a great experience but it will also leave you needing to rest for the next day’s adventures. After all the exploring and sightseeing in Koh Samui, it’s best to return to a resort that’s peaceful and luxurious and ShaSa Resort is one of these. With proper rest and relaxation, you’ll be more able to explore the beautiful island of Koh Samui and have a vacation of a lifetime.

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.
