With lockdown restrictions being eased and people gearing up to spend some time in the sun, a beachside resort with an air of relaxation is just the place to be. It has been said time and again that short-haul destinations will be the first to pick up in the post-COVID era, and X2 Koh Samui – A Spa Retreat (by Cross Hotels & Resorts) makes for the perfect setting.
Koh Samui is one of southern Thailand’s most popular tourist destinations and is home to pristine beaches, lush tropical forests, and vibrant dining and nightlife. The island has its own airport and is just an hour-long flight from Bangkok. It also offers just the place to rejuvenate at X2 Koh Samui – A Spa Retreat, with over 100 metres of uninterrupted beachfront and serene views of the Gulf of Thailand. What adds to the experience is its ‘all spa inclusive’ package, a first to be offered in the region. Ideal for couples, honeymooners, families or friends looking to blend some quality time together with that much-needed escape, the package offers unlimited spa treatments throughout the day to relax those sore muscles.
The X2 Spa has a luxurious relaxation space where skilled therapists apply innovative treatments that combine modern techniques with age-old practices passed on through generations to revitalise the mind, body and soul. In addition to ensuring that cleanliness and hygiene are extremely good across all operations, the resort has implemented enhanced cleaning and hygiene with best practices. While proper cleaning and frequent sanitisation of all common areas and guest rooms is carried out, alcohol-based hand sanitizers are also available for guests and staff to use.
The resort also offers a bouquet of activities! Guests can try their hand at a game of Pétanque, paddle a kayak on the calm ocean waters, or take a bike out for a spin along the coastline and through nearby villages. They can also dip into the resort’s magnificent centrepiece – an expansive swimming pool, the deepest resort pool on the island. They can take an invigorating swim or simply relax by the poolside on the plush sun loungers while enjoying the endless ocean view!
