SAii Resorts, the free-spirited lifestyle brand from S Hotels and Resorts PCL, the leading Thai hospitality investment and management company, has unveiled a series of immersive festive celebrations at its beachfront resorts in Southern Thailand that will help all guests to uncover the natural, cultural and culinary wonders of the “Land of Smiles” at this enchanting time of year.
Throughout December, couples and families at SAii Phi Phi Island Village, SAii Laguna Phuket and SAii Choengmon Koh Samui will be able to embark on highly authentic journeys that are inspired by the spirit of their destination. With signature brand concepts such as Lèn Spa, which offers a personalised path to wellbeing, Mr. Tomyam, the bright Thai-inspired restaurant, and Miss Olive Oyl, the stylish Mediterranean-style bar and grill, plus a wide range of activities that connect visitors with the local community and environment, every SAii Resort is ready to add a sense of “Thainess” to the upcoming festive season.
At SAii Phi Phi Island Village, which is nestled amid 70 acres of coconut groves with a private 800-metre-long white sandy beach, guests can experience a sustainable Christmas and New Year with plenty of opportunities to get outdoors, discover nature and protect the environment. The traditional festive decorations will be centered around an original driftwood Christmas tree, to create a wonderfully warm and rustic feel, and travellers can join the resort’s team in a series of eco-sensitive activities.
At the resort’s Marine Discovery Centre, a colourful and interactive facility which is dedicated to preserving the ocean, families can join marine biologists and learn about bamboo shark conservation and clownfish breeding programmes, help to plant mangroves, take a kayaking trip to clean-up the precious coastal ecosystems, and even enjoy snorkelling adventures to see the newly-generated coral reef. Maya Bay, the breath-taking cove that inspired the Leonardo DiCaprio movie “The Beach,” can also be visited on small-scale excursions led by local guides on Thai long-tail boats.
Naturally, SAii Phi Phi Island Village will also be staging a full calendar of “A Sparkling Escape” and festive dining experiences, including sparkling Christmas buffets enhanced with Thai classical dance performances, a dramatic fire show and a special appearance from Santa! Guests can then ring in the New Year with live music and dancing, culminating with a spectacular firework display as the clock ticks down to midnight. Find more details about the special offers here.
SAii Laguna Phuket, which is nestled between shimmering lagoons and the Andaman Sea on Phuket’s sunset coast, is inviting parents and children to embark on fun-filled adventures this December. This tropical paradise is packed with fantastic family facilities, including a water sports hub, floodlit tennis courts, spectacular swimming pools, waterslides, an archery range, mountain bike rental and more. Mafeung & Mafai’s Junior Beach Club & Camp, the resort’s colourful kids’ club, will offer a daily schedule of festive themed arts & crafts sessions, cooking classes and so much more!
Throughout the holiday season, families can end their day of discovery with a relaxing evening at SAiinema, the resort’s outdoor movie theatre. Sitting back on comfy bean bags under the stars, and snacking on popcorn and other light bites, guests can chill out together while watching their favourite Christmas movies.
And of course, all ages can immerse themselves in an amazing array of festive lunches, brunches and dinners, with authentic Thai, Western, Mediterranean, Lebanese cuisine and much more! From a Christmas Eve feast with carols and cocktails, to a luxurious evening of lobster and oysters at Mr. Tomyam Beachfront Restaurant, and a New Year’s Eve dinner and dance with fireworks over the Andaman Sea on 31st December, every guest can end the year in style!
Guests can enjoy “A Fabulous Festive Stay” at SAii Laguna Phuket with a special package that includes 15% off the room rate, daily breakfast for two people, and a 10% discount on the resort’s festive dinners, including the Festive Family Feast on 24 December and NYE Gala Dinner & Dance or NYE Famous Beach BBQ on 31 December.

SAii Koh Samui Choengmon, the elegant all-pool villa retreat, is the ultimate destination for guests who want to get away from it all and indulge in a private escape. Now, free-spirited couples can connect with each other and achieve romantic bliss with an unforgettable festive stay in a private pool villa, surrounded by swaying palms and shimmering seas.
This holiday season, guests can kayak or snorkel in the pure waters of Hanuman Bay, amid a stunning seascape of granite headlands and colourful coral reefs, unleash their artistic side and learn about Southern Thai heritage with festive themed batik painting lessons, feel the touch of wellness at Lèn Spa, or simply plunge into the seafront infinity pool. For truly exotic tropical adventures, offshore excursions will uncover the wonders of idyllic isles such as Koh Tan and Koh Madsum, which are home to diverse ecosystems, rich wildlife and even a population of friendly beach-dwelling pigs!
SAii Koh Samui Choengmon has crafted a series of uplifting celebrations especially for couples, including a cosy Christmas Eve at Miss Olive Oyl, a poolside barbecue on 28th December and a tropical New Year’s Eve dinner and party with a fire dancer show on 31st December.
