Take pleasure in the myriad of activities that Koh Samui has to offer such as snorkelling, canopy adventures, elephant trekking, a tour around the Ang Thong Marine National Park or rejuvenate to an in-villa massage and spa treatment. All of the below can be arranged through the villa manager:

Ang Thong Marine National Park

Without doubt, a boat-trip to Ang Thong National Marine Park will be a highlight of your stay here, indeed in Thailand. There are 41 islets scattered like green teeth among the turquoise waters north of Samui, and most day-trips allow you to climb to the top of the largest one for breathtaking views over the whole archipelago. If you’re lucky, you may spot dolphin (Feb-April), macaques, sea otters, monitor lizards, mynah birds, swifts (whose nests are stolen to make birds nest soup) and other exotic birds like the white-rumped shama.  A respectable second-best to Ang Thong is a day's snorkelling in the corals off Koh Mad Sum island, 4km southwest of Samui. You can usually find a (shared) taxi-boat from Baan Bangkao or Baan Thongkrut piers.

Boat charter

A 32ft twin engine day cruiser with captain is available exclusively at Devatara for approximately 20 000 BHT (£400 at time of print) for the day or 10 000 BHT (£200 at time of print) for half a day. Guests are therefore able to enjoy private excursions to outlying islands including the famous moon festival on Koh Phangan.

Kite Surfing

There could not be a better place to experience one of the fastest growing extreme sports in the world and one of the easiest to learn. The nearby kite surfing school offers board hire and courses of all levels. 


Sailing is popular in Samui being led by the success of the Ko Samui Regatta which is held in early June and the continued popularity of the day cruises and sunset cruises aboard the 52 foot sailing catamaran Kia Ora. Please note there is currently no marina on the island so charter options are limited.


Scuba Diving

The Gulf of Thailand offers a huge variety of dive sites suitable for all levels of diver. So whether you want to blow your very first bubbles underwater or you're an experienced diver looking for something more challenging, there are plenty of options to choose from.

There are also a huge variety of diving schools on the island so if you are a first time diver there are plenty of high quality courses you can attend.


The surrounding areas of Koh Samui are well known to be one of Asia's best diving sites. Snorkellers can accompany their diving companions on scuba dive trips, take a tour organised for snorkellers, a trip arranged by local fishermen to one of the many surrounding islands or just snorkel from the beaches and rock formations dotted around the island.


Water Skiing & Jet Skiing

Water skiing & Jet skiing is available on many of the larger beaches.
