Anantara Koh Samui Resort


It’s always Boxing Day in Thailand
Thai Boxing, or Muay Thai, is as synonymous with Thai identity as tongue-tamingly spicy food, knock-off LV handbags and the inappropriate use of a ping pong ball. As an art form, a science, a sport and a kick-ass martial art, there are few things that get Thai blood (and beer) flowing quicker, than watching two perfectly marbled welter-weights kicking the proverbial out of each other.


Combine honing your body into the ultimate weapon with your next sun-drenched vacation at Anantara Koh Samui Resort & Spa, which now offers Muay Thai classes under the guidance of the island’s leading trainer, Chueng Pinijnart (even his name sounds deadly), who studied at the nearby Muay Thai school at Surat Thani. Learn how to employ not only your legs and fists, but also your elbows, knees, hands and chin (like the primary school song, “Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes”) in the tropical gardens of one of the islands most luxurious resorts. Classes range from one-hour introductions right up to a full one-week Rocky-esque montage and, when you’re not attacking pads (or your fellow guests) with a human typhoon of punches and kicks, you can lie by the pool, sip cocktails laden with mini umbrellas, and soak up the sun’s gentle kiss.

Because even Chuck Norris knows how to love.
