ICYMI: Father’s Day is almost here! June 16th is right around the corner, and it’s time to pull out all the stops for your main man. Forget the usual tie and cufflink sets, engraved pens, and those “Best Dad Ever” mugs gathering dust in the cupboard. No… seriously. 

This year, let’s shake things up and give Daddy Cool the celebration he truly deserves.

Whatever kind of dad you’ve got, we’re willing to bet there’s nothing he’ll love more than time spent together, doing exactly what he loves best. And in our books, there’s no better way to make that happen than with the gift of travel! Whether he’s into adventure, relaxation, or the finer things in life, we know just where you should head for this Father’s Day: 

For the Adventurous Dad:

Get ready to unleash your inner adventurer in Koh Samui!

Renowned as one of Samui’s most famous fishing villages, Bophut offers a tranquil and laid-back setting while keeping you close to all the action around Bophut Beach. We recommend heading on a Jungle Safari tour or to the nearby Koh Samui shooting range for an extra dose of excitement. Some of our favourite properties in the area have to be the Dhevatara Residence Estate and Villa Mullion Cove.
