Whether you’re looking to get away from the crowded beaches and busy resorts in Phuket, or simply looking for something new and spectacular in Thailand, Ko Phra Thong has the rustic seaside huts, quiet beaches, and chilled out vibes you’re looking for . You might have to experience cold showers and limited electricity depending on your budget, but if you’re seeking solitude on a secluded island with vast stretches of undeveloped beaches, this is the place for you! 

They also offer a range of activities such as canoeing and snorkeling to complete your stay.

Only a few hours drive north from Phuket, the island of Ko Phra Thong, which translates to Golden Buddha Island, has an array of different accommodations to meet your budget and needs. We’ve put together a list of our top places to experience this hidden gem on Thailand’s west coast:

Golden Buddha

Located on an empty 12 kilometer stretch of beach, The Golden Buddha is a luxury eco-resort fit for a king and his entire court. With secluded beach cottages nestled within the coastal forest of Ko Phra Thong, you can expect the type of luxury you might find in places like Phuket or Krabi. Between the staff, service, accommodations, and food, The Golden Buddha has everything you need and want.

The Moken Eco Village

The Moken Eco Village has been touted by guests as the ideal resort for couples looking for a romantic getaway. Tucked away under the trees, but in close proximity to the beach, The Moken offers bungalows with high ceilings and large porches to relax while listening to the ocean. They also offer a range of activities such as canoeing and snorkeling to complete your stay.
