Basubu says

Thailand might be a tourist hot spot, but there are still a few hidden gems here. Only accessible by boat, the quaint island of Koh Yao Noi is a true sanctuary for the spirit. Here, yogis can settle into asanas with uninterrupted views of the turquoise waters and reconnect in the sprawling tropical forests. Consider yourself a cook? Experience a traditional Thai cooking class with a local chef and fire up some seriously bold flavours. The island snorkelling trips and soothing massage treatments are also a top highlight.

Program

Day 1
Fly into Phuket. Amy Walker will meet you at the airport and transport you to the island of Koh Yao Noi. 

Accessible only by boat, the small rustic island getaway of Koh Yao Noi, the “Little Long Island”, is located roughly an hour boat ride away from the popular tourist destinations of Phuket and Krabi. The smaller of the two Koh Yao islands, this is one of the last remaining local islands in the region to remain largely unspoiled by mass tourism. With a large portion of the island dedicated to national parkland, Koh Yao Noi is a perfect retreat for those looking to escape the crowds of Phuket and Krabi.

Check in to your TreeHouse Villa: A tropical island set in awe-inspiring Phang Nga Bay. Natural vegetation and lush landscaping. At the treehouse villa, you will have total privacy between each elevated villa with your own pool. 

Day 2
Start your day with a morning yoga session on the beach at 7:30 a.m. Breakfast at your leisure as we are sure you will be tired from your long journey. At 1 p.m., you will be joining a Thai cooking class followed by free time to enjoy the surrounding area. Dinner will be at the resort at 7 p.m.

Day 3
As usual, you will start your day with a morning yoga session on the beach at 7:30 a.m. At 9 a.m.m you will enjoy a private island tour of Koh Yao Noi. Then, have lunch out in town as a group.

In the evening, you will have time to relax at your TreeHouse Villa. The lower floor is open-aired and features a plunge pool that reaches into the jungle itself. It comes complete with a private dining facility, personal bar with a selection of complimentary items, a double swing, day beds, and high ceilings all decorated in a European ‘shabby chic’ style using up-cycled and recycled materials and a colour palette inspired by the jungle and sea. 

In the air-conditioned upper floor, the grand king-sized bed faces a balcony that sits above the trees giving the feeling of floating over the leafy canopy and providing views over the sea to the Jurassic massifs of the bay. 

Dinner at the resort at 7 p.m.

Day 4
This morning too, enjoy a rejuvenating yoga session on the beach at 7:30 a.m. At 9 a.m., you will take part in a private Phang Nga Bay Island Tour. Visit the most beautiful islands around Koh Yao Noi and Krabi during this unforgettable day trip on a long-tail boat, or the resort’s own catamaran. Enjoy a day of sightseeing, swimming, and snorkeling in the wonderful Phang Nga bay with its impressive limestone rocks and hongs.

The trip starts with the ’hong’ inside Koh Hong, which is surrounded by limestone cliffs and affords you the opportunity to snorkel with tropical fish. A picnic lunch is served at ‘Paradise beach’, on a small, idyllic, hidden bay of Lading island. The final stop is the beautiful island Koh Phak Bia with its white sandy cape.

Dinner at the resort at 7 p.m.

Your guide will lead you on a final snorkelling adventure at a coral garden on your way back.

Set sail for the site immortalized by the peerless Roger Moore in “The Man with the Golden Gun” and channel your inner secret agent. Not a movie buff? Let us show you prehistoric cave paintings, the floating fishing village of Koh Panyi (complete with a floating football pitch), and a sampling of the many interesting grottos and lagoons comprising Panak Island.
