Ring In The Thai New Year at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui, Thailand

Thai New Year can be a pretty raucous affair. After all, how many other places are there in the world where it’s completely acceptable to throw a bucket of water at a passerby, or to shoot at a total stranger with a water pistol? But in April in Thailand, this is exactly what happens – and visitors are invited to join in the fun especially for Thai New Year at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui.

Every April sees the arrival of Thai New Year, also known as the Songkran Water Festival. Celebrated from April 13 to 15, the festival embraces goodwill, love, compassion and thankfulness, using water as the means of expression. Originally a sign of respect, the traditional water pouring has evolved into good-natured country-wide water throwing, with locals and tourists alike roaming the streets armed with containers of water, or waiting on the side of the road with a water pistol to drench friends and strangers alike – all in the name of fun.

It continues at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui, where a special Songkran Package is available so that guests can join in the festivities, too. The four-night package includes daily breakfast, one dinner for two at the Resort’s Thai restaurant KOH Thai Kitchen & Bar, a two-hour Songkran Celebration treatment for two at the Spa, and a special Songkran Survival Kit for guests staying on April 13, 14 and 15, 2015.

For those who want to head out and join the water-throwing fun, Chaweng town provides the biggest party atmosphere. But for those who want to take it easy during Thai New Year, or who have tired of the festivities,Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui provides the perfect laid-back escape.

And a word of warning to visitors to the Kingdom of Thailand at this time of year: you will get wet, so try and remain cool (a good dousing with water usually helps) and join in this good-natured fun with a smile and sense of humour.

Rates for the Songkran Package at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui start at THB 27,900 per room, per night, subject to government tax and service charge. A Songkran Package is also available from April 11 to 17, 2015 at Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai.

  • Click link in bio! ⛵️ I've just announced new dates for our Sailing in The Arctic Wilderness in Norway with @travelwithtjd for February 2019!! Join me together with @dennisstever when we sail the arctic wilderness in search of the northern lights! 
There is a reason why I keep going back to the arctic: now I have the chance to show you. The adventure and feeling in the north surpasses any other I’ve ever experienced before, I have difficulty expressing my feelings that describes the true reality of arctic silence, subzero temperatures and open waters. #TravelwithTJD
  • Hello Maldives and hello @joalimaldives 
Celebrating the official opening week of JOALI - A property that is very close to my heart with its’ core values, philosophy and management. Congratulations to the whole team for the successful opening!

  • Maybe, just maybe... a soul mate is someone who makes you feel like anything is possible... Let that sink in 💫
  • Sailing in the arctic... This is becoming my comfort zone 💫 #TravelwithTJD
  • On our first and last night in Tromsø, we woke up with this beautiful view from @radissonblutromso facing the harbor where our boat set sail from. Looking back at the memories, I still can’t believe how lucky we are to experience it all together. Some people at the hotel even said they could see the Northern Lights from here, despite the light pollution! Thank you @radissonblutromso for your incredible hospitality and for the beautiful room upgrade! Can’t wait to be back! #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • It was incredibly windy that day as we anchored on the island. Still, we managed to get to shore without falling into the freezing waters and I managed to get the drone up for a while. We kept on joking about it on the zodiac wondering what would happen if one of us falls off! I would have wanted someone to save my camera first! 😊 What will you save first? #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • I’ve always dreamed of sailing in the arctic and now, it’s been a re-occurring reality for me. To me, this is my reality, this is where I’m in my element, this is my life, with my camera in one hand... when I return right here, doing the things I love the most and where everything is far better than my dreams... everything in between is just a phase. You may or may not agree, but this is my back to reality life and I hope you see yours too 💫 #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • This is my second time right here on this spot. The first time I found this place, we were sailing in the arctic for the midnight sun and this time, in search of the Northern Lights on @travelwithtjd and both times with Dennis @dennisstever 
There is an unexplainable power that draws me to this island. Maybe because it’s uninhabited, with only a church and a graveyard... Or maybe it’s the rugged raw landscape and how comfortable I am with silence. Whatever it is, I wanted to show them what magic looks like. #TravelwithTJD
  • My beautiful reality shared with the sweetest and bravest new guests on @travelwithtjd 
On the first night, we arrived in Tromsø at @radissonblutromso and got ready to set sail in the arctic the next morning with @pukkatravels 
Emotions were running high, one of the bravest people I met on our group, strangers sailing alone together, they found the chance to do that one thing they never imagined they would, one opportunity to jump on, they took a deep breath, and felt the rush of adrenaline. . . 
Thank you @dennisstever for capturing this moment ♥️ #TravelwithTJD
  • Nothing but raw arctic wilderness and no place I’d rather be! 
Can you spot the snowmobile on the frozen lake?
  • I’m ready for the most incredible season of adventures beyond the arctic wilderness with our @travelwithtjd trips!
Are you? ♥️ PS: that’s the sun the clouds behind there!
  • Take me back to @joalimaldives ☀️ Tag the person who you want to go to Maldives with!
