Many people might rule out Koh Samui as an appropriate holiday destination to take the youngsters. However, Samui has much to offer a young and active family who want a holiday experience that they will never forget.
Renting a villa can be the most practical accommodation option for those looking for somewhere stress-free to stay. A villa gives you all of the comforts of home as well as the freedom to create your own holiday itinerary and keep the children’s eating and sleeping routines as regular as you wish with no scheduled meal times and no late returning hotel rooms to interrupt sleep.
Most villas are extremely family friendly and come with a swimming pool and cooking facilities as well as televisions and DVD players which are sure to keep the kids entertained when they want a break from the sunshine. Alternatively there are places to take the kids if you need to be inside for a while such as indoor air conditioned bowling alley and cinema with a good range of films for adults and children, at the Tesco Lotus near Chaweng. For the child who isn’t up for Thai food there also a range of western style and fast food restaurants in this area.
There are many activities in Koh Samui that cater specifically to kids, especially those in the slightly older age bracket. As well as swimming in the sea, there are a whole range of sports for children to take part in. There is a carefully designed mini golf course in Choeng Mon as well as a chance to play the quirky hybrid game football-golf which involves using your feet to guide a football round an obstacle course, perfect for an aspiring little golfer or footballer.
If you are a particularly safety conscious family then you may be interested to know that Koh Samui is located in a Tsunami free spot.
If you just want simple family fun in one of the most beautiful and idyllic places in the world then Koh Samui could be just what your family needs.
