SAii Phi Phi Island Village and SAii Laguna Phuket unveil a wide range of professionally-led activities, from environmental conservation and educational programmes to kids’ arts & crafts, sports, wellness and much more…
SAii Resorts, the free-spirited lifestyle brand from S Hotels and Resorts PCL, has always strived to make a positive difference to the lives of its experience-seeking guests. Every vacation creates a gateway to personal enhancement – a chance for curious travellers to discover different cultures, explore new environments and try exciting activities. For young people, travelling can even spark a passion that lasts a lifetime.
With a choice of upper-upscale resorts in southern Thailand’s most intriguing and idyllic island destinations, SAii Resorts presents outstanding opportunities for couples and families to combine a dream vacation with educational experiences for all ages, including cultural discoveries and marine conservation, arts & crafts, wellness adventures, energizing sports and world-class wellness.
Wildlife and nature lovers can learn all about these programmes, including the SOS (“Save Our Sharks”) initiative which sees the resort work hand-in-hand with experts from the Phuket Marine Biological Center to care for bamboo sharks in southern Thailand – from incubating eggs and nurturing them at the Shark Nursery Pond, to releasing the juveniles back into their natural habitat. Active travellers can also head out and explore the enchanting marine environment with expert-led boat trips and mangrove kayaking expeditions.
Youngsters who want to be immersed even deeper in the marine world can visit the PADI-certified dive centre, which offers a “Bubblemaker” scuba diving course – an introductory session that lets little ones (eight or nine years old) learn how to breathe underwater, swim with fins and perform underwater tricks. SAii Phi Phi Island Village is an oasis of adventure; with water sports, tennis, swimming, yoga and many more energising pursuits, every guest can find a new skill or rediscover a lost love.
Rates start from THB 5,250++ per night and kids aged 0-4 years stay free-of-charge (in existing bedding including breakfast). To learn more about the activities available at SAii Phi Phi Island Village and its Marine Discovery Centre, please visit here
