Koh Yao Holidays

Unspoilt Shorelines

For the ultimate relaxing beach escape, and a step back in time to authentic Thailand, Koh Yao Yai is blissful paradise at its best.

Located in the middle of Phan Nga Bay and rich in unspoilt natural beauty, perfect for keen photographers, you’ll enjoy off-the-beaten-track heaven as you lounge on the sands with spectacular ocean views ahead, before exploring the island by bicycle or canoe to find deserted coves and peaceful shorelines, ideal for a romantic picnic for two. With the lively shores of Phuket just a short trip away, escape the hustle and bustle and head to this quiet, serene refuge where all you’ll be thinking of is where to snorkel next.

Why not also explore Krabi on your trip to Thailand? Marvel at dramatic limestone cliffs or head to the Klong Thom Hot Springs for a relaxing dip. Or, for a complete contrast, head to vibrant Bangkok.
