BANGKOK – The Phuket Sandbox is expanding! Under the new “7+7” expansion of Thailand’s popular international tourism programme, travellers from over 60 countries and territories worldwide can now enjoy outstanding two-centre escapes in southern Thailand, as they combine seven nights in Phuket with seven more in Koh Samui, Krabi or Phang Nga province.
To celebrate the launch of this innovative initiative, S Hotels and Resorts Public Company Limited, the flagship hospitality arm of Thailand’s Singha Estate PCL, has unveiled a pair of attractive packages that let overseas couples and families unwind at a combination of enchanting, inspiring and eco-sensitive beachfront resorts in southern Thailand. Whether you want to pair your stress-free stay at SAii Laguna Phuket with the pristine beauty of SAii Phi Phi Island Village or the five-star tranquillity of Santiburi Koh Samui, S Hotels & Resorts’ “1 trip 2 sensations” packages are the perfect option.
Under the “1 trip 2 sensations: Phuket+Phi Phi” package (starting from THB 47,000 net for 14 nights), beach lovers can spend seven dreamy days at SAii Laguna Phuket before taking a short, complimentary boat ride across the sparkling sea to Koh Phi Phi for a serene seven-night sojourn at SAii Phi Phi Island Village. Throughout this fantastic 14-night vacation, guests will be rewarded with daily breakfast for two, a 25% discount on F&B and laundry, and free meals for kids.
At SAii Laguna Phuket, the breath-taking beachfront resort at Bangtao Bay, overlooking the Andaman Sea, guests will also be treated to a complimentary transfer from the airport, early check-in, late check-out², and one three-course lunch or dinner for two. Children aged 12 and under stay for free³! Then at SAii Phi Phi Island Village, which is nestled on an 800-metre-long stretch of powder-soft sand, visitors will benefit from an upgrade to the next category of bungalow or villa, one couple’s dinner with a bottle of wine, access to the Marine Discovery Centre, the interactive conservation hub where guests can meet the resident marine biologist and learn about the resort’s efforts to preserve the unique undersea environment, and complimentary non-motorised water sports and activities such as kayaking, paddle-boarding and eco-sensitive mangrove tours. Upon departure, guests will be transferred back to the airport by boat and car.
Alternatively, the “1 trip 2 sensations: Phuket+Samui” package (starting from THB 55,000 net for 14 nights) combines a blissful seven-night break at SAii Laguna Phuket with an immersive island escape at Santiburi Koh Samui, the experience-driven luxury resort set in 23 acres of tropical greenery on Samui’s secluded north shore. Both resorts will offer daily breakfast every morning, free roundtrip airport transfers, early check-in and late check-out.
And that’s not all; SAii Laguna Phuket will also provide one three-course lunch or dinner for two, a 25% discount on F&B and laundry, and free meals for kids¹. Then, when travellers arrive at Santiburi Koh Samui, they will be treated to in-room fresh fruit, daily afternoon tea, one delectable dinner, a 60-minute treatment at Lèn Spa, free shuttle services to the Santiburi Samui Country Club, and unlimited use of the resort’s extensive leisure facilities, including water sports, the tennis court and fitness centre.
Both offers are valid for bookings and stays from now and until 23 December 2021, and guests can enjoy the convenience of a one-stop reservation service. Simply book with SAii Laguna Phuket and their expert team will handle everything for the entire two-week, twin-centre stay.
No matter which combination of these heavenly destinations guests choose, they can rest assured that all three resorts have received their Amazing Thailand Safety and Health Administration Plus (SHA+) certificate, which ensures that almost 100% of hotel associates have been vaccinated against COVID-19, and that the property adheres to the highest health and safety standards. SAii Laguna Phuket, SAii Phi Phi Island Village and Santiburi Koh Samui have also been awarded Tripadvisor’s Traveller’s Choice Award 2021, which reflects their reputation for creating truly outstanding experiences.
“We are delighted to invite our cherished international clientele back to Thailand. The 7+7 extension of the Phuket Sandbox provides even more opportunities for visitors to rediscover the Kingdom’s most idyllic island jewels, including Koh Phi Phi and Koh Samui.
