Koh Yao Holidays

For the ultimate relaxing beach escape and a step back in time to authentic Thailand, the Koh Yao islands are blissful paradise at it's best.

Located in the middle of Phan Nga Bay and rich in unspoilt natural beauty it's the perfect place 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, which is the ideal area for a romantic picnic. 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 about 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.
