A Family Getaway to Koh Samui

Chai Sian Lim

Recently, we decided to plan a last-minute trip to Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort. We decided to bring along our daughter, her husband and our little granddaughter. We arrived safely at the airport, and my granddaughter was very excited as it was her first time travelling. To our delight, an airport transfer was waiting for us at the airport to shuttle us to the resort. We were also given some nice welcome treats upon our arrival.

Once checked in, we decided to head down to the beach. The beach was so clean and the sky was so clear. We chose to have dinner at the resort after an afternoon of relaxing. As native Malaysians, coconuts are something we are quite familiar with. That being said, we still ordered 5-6 coconuts over dinner because they were so amazingly sweet and refreshing!

The next day, after a fantastic breakfast at the resort, we decided to walk around and explore. It’s a great place to walk around if you have kids. The resort features a kids’ play area and nursery room. While we were busy in the afternoon, our granddaughter stayed at the nursery where she was able to take a kids’ baking class. She loved it!

Near the resort, there is a fisherman village with a walking street. Luckily for us, there was a great night market for us to explore. After enjoying our walk, we stopped for a wonderful seafood dinner by the beach. Since there are so many options for dining, the hotel staff was kind enough to provide some suggestions.

On the following day, my husband and I enjoyed some morning swimming with our granddaughter. The pool was right by the beach so we could enjoy a great view of the sea. Later, we decided to rent a car and explore the whole island. It just us about two hours to complete our tour.

Overall, it was a truly amazing trip. Even now, our granddaughter still asks us when we can go back so she can make some more cookies! If you have a family with kids and are looking for a place to go, make sure you visit Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort. You will love it!
