Belmond Napasai launches new experience packages that invite guests to relish simple pleasures of island life and pay homage to the traditions of Koh Samui.
Curated in collaboration with the local community, this latest host of experiences takes guests beyond the sun, sand and sea to discover hidden escapes and appreciate local heritage and Samui way of life. From seeking an inner peace at Kunaram Temple to exploring a secret garden of sculptures tucked away on the hills or learning the art of ‘Kalamae’ making, Belmond Napasai offers enriching and transformative journeys for guests to indulge in the joys of discovery as well as help preserving the local community.
Kunaram Temple & Magic Garden
Start the day by paying respects to the Island’s highly revered and respected monk, Luang Pho Daeng at the Wat Khunaram Temple. Guests can learn the benefits of meditation and receive blessings at the Buddhist temple, before making their way to the Magic Garden to take in majestic views of Koh Samui, amid a garden of sculptures. Make new discoveries amongst the unusual statues featuring deities and animals with many representing Buddhist folklores, a collection of stories waiting to be shared.
This cultural adventure will introduce guests to Koh Samui’s tropical fruit orchards as well as learn how to make the famous local treat, ‘Kalamae’. Pay a visit to one of the few villages in the country that continue to preserve the art of ‘Kalamae’. Consisting of glutinous rice flour, palm sugar and coconut cream, this candy takes hours of teamwork to create, making it a rare-to-find delicacy in today’s context.
Guests can choose between a two-night or four-night stay package for two people with a choice of one of the journeys, whilst taking in the beauty of Koh Samui in one of Belmond Napasai’s spacious villas with unobstructed sea views. For the four-night stay, enjoy a complimentary dinner at the resort’s Lai Thai Restaurant featuring distinctive Thai and international dishes with herbs and spices freshly grown at the hotel’s very own Secret Garden. All deposits from the Belmond + You packages will be invested in the respective communities as we play our part to keep traditions and history alive.
Set between jungle and sea, Belmond Napasai is the perfect destination to savour peace and privacy with its private sandy beach, beautiful standalone villas and suites and infinity-edge freshwater pool. Perfect for families and friends, the World of Belmond promises a revitalising escape with unique and meaningful experiences for your next holiday.
