InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort
When you first wake up, the beauty of this legendary island seems so stunning that you may be convinced you are dreaming. Rub your eyes, sprinkle drops of cool water on your face and you will be delighted to find that your eyes have not deceived you. After a breakfast of the freshest and sweetest tropical fruit at Amber. To appreciate it fully, I can recommend private classes on our outdoor platform with our expert trainer, a former Muay Thai professional. Known as the art of eight limbs, Muay Thai uses fists, elbows, knees and feet. As a total body workout, it enhances balance, flexibility and core strength and is a great stress reliever!
InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort offers 7 coloured swimming pools including 2 infinity pools. Following the ultimate in aquatic relaxation, guests are invited to retreats to The Spa for natural and ayurvedic treatments to sooth their suntanned skin or take a trip onboard the resorts signature speed boat to the five islands or the Angthong National Marine Park.
In the evening, I can recommend a short sunset that few try but those who do never forget. Air Bar's sunsets, perched high above the Gulf of Thailand on cliffs of Taling Ngam, Air Bar is a one-of-a-kind destination cocktail lounge on Koh Samui. The hypnotic color palette of a Samui sunset and the countless shades of blue and green of the Gulf of Thailand are your backdrop as you enjoy one of Air Bar’s signature cocktails prepared by our world-class mixologists. Accompany your drinks with delicate tapas creations or sushi and sashimi. Air Bar is a Koh Samui attraction in itself; make it your go-to for pre-dinner drinks as you watch the ballet of light, color and movement on the Gulf of Thailand. Or stop by for a nightcap and a sumptuous desert under the stars as the lights of the pier, ships on the water and the resort twinkle below.
That the head of a person in Thailand is considered even on children. Correspondingly, the feets are considered dirty and should not be used to move or point to anything. When on the floor, for example in a temple, make sure that your feet are not pointing towards someone or something of religious significance.
As a sign of respect and cleanliness, you should take off your shoes before you enter some’s home. This also apples to some shops where a little sign will be displayed on the door but no sign assume that shoes should be taken off.
Always wear appropriate clothing when in public spaces. Beach-wear is acceptable on the beach but should be refrained from when going somewhere else.
Please contact the Concierge for information on how to dress if you wish to visit a local Thai Temple, Church or Mosque.
