The Chai Talay Estate is located on the south side of Thailand’s Koh Samui. Accessible by direct flights for major Asia cities, Europe and the U.S, Chai Talay is the perfect destination for a family or extended families and friends. The location offers the best of both worlds; it is private but not isolated so groups can be happily entertained on site or can reach bars and restaurants within a walking distance.
Set within an exquisite area of natural beauty, the 3 Villas, Baan Kilee, Baan Puri and Baan Ora Chon offer unbeatable flexibility and can accommodate from 4 in two rooms to 40 using all three villas.
On site activities and facilities are extensive and range from kids and parents yoga, stretching and flexing classes, biking tours, paddle boarding and organised beach and pool games. There is also a children’s playzone and pool with a dedicated member of staff available to childmind, allowing parents to have some free time.
Each villa has a dedicated team of chefs and managers who deliver exceptional food and beverage to suite every age, as well as world class standards of service. The daily menus deliver healthy meals using the best of the Island’s local produce being both organic and hydroponic.
Chai Talay also offers families a range of integrated health and wellness activities if required. With the option for a professional retreat practitioner on hand, family wellness packages are designed to ensure that all ages can enjoy the perfect mix of relaxation and action with the added bonus of learning some wellness skills to enhance life back home.
