New private retreats at Four Seasons Chiang Mai and Koh Samui
Earmark Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui and Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai for the next family vacation: offering two- to four-bedroom luxury ‘Private Retreats’ exclusively for short to long-term stays. In addition to expansive accommodation, these Private Retreats come with indoor and outdoor living areas, live-in butler, dining rooms, private pools and open-air pavilions designed for relaxation.
Set amid emerald rice paddies, Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai is a haven of wellbeing in the cultural capital of Northern Thailand. An invigorating hillside oasis, Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui is a true reflection of island life in a lush tropical setting in the Gulf of Thailand.
With an enviable reputation of being amongst the world’s best for family holidays, the resorts offer a range of enriching, fun and safe experiences for children including a dedicated ‘Kids for All Seasons’ programme that will keep the young travellers entertained throughout their stay.
SAVOUR THE ISLAND LIFE
At Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui, children can learn about sustainability and the Coral Conservation Project. Over 16,000 broken coral fragments have been nursed back to life and replanted into the reef under the supervision of the Resort’s on-site marine biologist.
Muay Thai classes are energy-packed and designed for children aged 4-15 years. The session includes games and other fun-based activities to keep them focused, active and attentive in the Muay Thai training ring.
Even the smallest members of the family can participate in interactive cooking classes accompanied by parents to learn the secrets of Thai cooking, making dishes which can be easily be recreated at home.
BOUNTY OF CULTURE
At Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai, children can immerse themselves in Thai culture and tradition. With its very own working rice fields, the resort offers a valuable opportunity to experience Rice Planting, where they learn about the fascinating journey of rice and witness – first-hand – the hard work that goes into farming. Along the way, they get to meet the resort’s resident buffaloes and take part in the ritual Buffalo Bathing ceremony.
Creativity is encouraged through the art of making Krathongs from banana leaves, painting on traditional umbrellas and working with local sa paper from mulberry bark to make their own Lannaand hill-tribe garments, culminating in an exciting dress-up party around the resort grounds, where they wear and parade their own handiwork.
FAMILY HOLIDAY GOALS
While children indulge in fun learning, families can enjoy complete privacy as both resorts offer exclusive amenities, including a live-in private butler, kitchenette, buffet breakfasts, welcome bottle of wine, round-trip limousine airport transfers, evening canapés, and a USD 500 credit which can be redeemed for dining at any of their exceptional restaurants (valid for 2019, to be booked by 30 April 2019).
