ASIA. KOH SAMUI, THAILAND.
For those seeking sporting endeavours in a secluded setting, Belmond Napasai on the Thai island of Koh Samui might be just the location. Nestled between beach and jungle on the north coast, the resort’s stand-alone villas stretching up the hillside all come with a sea view. Guests can spy the Ang Thong National Marine Park in the distance, an excellent diving destination within easy reach of this family-friendly hotel. The resort can provide equipment and its PADI-certified instructors run introductory sessions in the pool. Other sporting activities on offer include traditional Thai boxing, tennis, yoga and kayaking. One of two on-site dining options, Beach restaurant’s cosy setting – with paper lanterns glowing in the trees as the sun sets – offers a more relaxing end to a day of activities.
