Stepping into Silavadee Resort is like entering a luxurious island dream. From the moment you are greeted upon arrival until the wave goodbye you are treated like royalty. The staff were eager and welcoming to our family and practiced the highest hygiene standards during check-in and throughout the resort. I instantly fell for traditional yet grand design and settled quickly into our luxurious Two Bedroom Oceanfront Pool Villa Suite. Boasting two large en-suite bedrooms, sumptuous king size beds, an insanely large bathtub with a view, refreshing outdoor shower overlooking the ocean, and spacious areas to dine and lounge, we found it hard to ever leave the villa. The expansive infinity pool was perched beautifully on a cliff edge overlooking Silavadee’s picturesque secret beach and the crystal waters crashing over Koh Samui’s famous boulders. It was a true escape from reality and a place our family could relax and unwind.
If you are looking to explore Samui, Silavadee offers a free shuttle into vibrant Lamai where you can visit the white sand beach and shop along the local food markets and cute boutiques. We found there was plenty to do at the resort itself. We highly recommend a family visit to Silavadee’s organic farm where you can see first hand where much of their produce is grown. The resort’s executive chef walked us through the grounds before leading a fun cooking session with the kids. Private lunches are also served on the tranquil grounds and Ever and River loved meeting the resident animals and sharing veggies with them throughout our visit.
The resort’s secret beach is another beautiful place to spend the day. It’s fully serviced with plenty of activities for adults and kids. Choose an immersive snorkeling session, afternoon boxing, or just enjoy a cocktail in a hammock under the palm trees. We signed the kids up for private Muay Thai lessons and they loved every minute before returning to the sea for a splash and swim. For true relaxation, the spa is an unbeatable choice. They even have a children’s spa menu, so River and I indulged in a Mother and Son massage. I loved seeing him find tranquility after a big, busy day and it was an amazing bonding experience for us both.
For foodie families like us, you won’t be disappointed by the many dining options at Silavadee. Make sure to order a picture perfect in villa breakfast, grab sundowners and admire panoramic views at Star Bar and sample the irresistible menu at Moon Restaurant. Every menu was family friendly and they were quick to learn ours and our children’s preferences. The homemade ice cream is a must have and will keep your kids begging for more.
The memories we created at Silavadee were some of the best during our long stay on Koh Samui. The staff and resort were able to adapt seamlessly during a time when travel is just picking up again and we felt completely safe and peaceful during our time at the stunning resort. I can’t recommend it more to families or couples looking for five star luxury and an idyllic stay in Koh Samui.
