Craving an island-hopping break in the Gulf of Thailand? You might want to look up the latest limited-time offers by the five-star Anantara brand. Thanks to the “Beyond the Beaches” package at Anantara’s trio of luxe properties in Koh Samui and Koh Phangan, couples bedding down for three nights at any of the resorts will be treated to return airport transfers and immersive experiences depending on their chosen locale.

At Anantara Bophut Koh Samui, guests will visit a bustling wet market and smallholder farm to pick up fresh produce and the catch of the day for their dinner the same evening. On property, a 60-minute treatment for two awaits at the Bill Bensley–designed spa, and travelers will get to sip on sundowners at A.Shore, the rustic beach bar. The Beyond the Beaches special at Anantara Bophut starts from THB 38,700++ (about US$1,093), and is valid for stays from now until November 30, 2022. Bookings can be made throughout the same period.

Less than 20 minutes’ drive from Bophut, Anantara Lawana Koh Samui whisks guests into the jungle with an open jeep safari that culminates with a gourmet picnic served on a hilltop as the sun rises or sets. Also included is one five-course dinner enjoyed in a private sala amid the forest canopy at Tree Tops, and a floating breakfast for two in the privacy of your pool villa. Rates for the package starts from THB 61,500 ++ (US$1,738), but you’ll have to hurry as the booking period only lasts until August 31, with stays available through the end of November.

For those wanting to go a little off the beaten track without sacrificing creature comforts, stays in a pool suite or villa at Anantara Rasananda Koh Phangan Villas come with one diving or snorkeling “island voyage” to secluded spots where coral gardens form a playground for colorful fish, sea turtles, and other marine life. Upon returning to the resort, guests will be pampered with an hourlong spa experience in a treatment room embedded into the limestone rock. Return airport boat transfers to/from neighboring Koh Samui are included too, and the package at Anantara Rasananda starts from THB 51,000++ (US$1,441). Bookings can be made until November 30, 2022.
