This is Thailand's best kept secret. Charming and secluded and really really well run by Massi, the hotel manager. We were in heaven and are dreaming about our next visit. No tvs, no air conditioning, running water that smells a little due to minerals, but none of it matters when you are at the golden Buddha because you are drawn...

We stayed at the Golden Buddha in April for 3 nights and my only regret is we weren't there for our entire 2 week vacation. In planning our trip I was non-committal to any one place concerned we would be stuck somewhere that didn't turn out as we expected, but had I only known. Our family of 5, kids aged...

As a Family of 10 in the age between 8 and 70 (three generations), we were very excited and a bit nervous if the GB was able to fullfill our needs and interests. ALL our worries were proved wrong!!

if you like a relaxing place and walk for miles on a quite beach without seeing anybody, this place is for you. The Resort is located at the northern end of the Ko Phra Thong island. It is pretty much isolated from the rest of the island. The guests and supplies are usually dropped by boats on the beach. The...

Visually stunning. Romantic / Family getaway Such an original and beautifully furnished resort clubhouse, set in a parkland of native trees with stunning individual luxury houses. Ours consisted of two traditional stilt houses with interconnecting balconies. Two vast unspoiled beaches. We love the walk along the beach and enjoy beach cleaning - every little bit helps! The resort also has...

This was our first visit to this amazing resort. The journey there, from the welcoming sign at the airport, to a quick efficient drive to our boat to the bay, exceeded our expectations. The arrival view was mesmerising: a wide open bay with a vast long sandy beach with a little hut for lunchtime and a yoga sala, and of...

Hello Pascale, yes you can snorkel straight of our beach as there are some interesting rocks to explore. We do organise a day trip to the Surin islands which are spectacular for snorkelling with clear waters and a great variety of fish. There are no bicycle rentals on the island as there are no roads on Ko Phra Thong. The resort itself is teeming with wild life, and we can organise jeep trips to visit the hinterland or fishing trips, or short hops over to Ko Ra which has permanent rain forest. Don't hesitate to ask if you have any more questions. Best, Valerie

Hi Chloe J,

Thanks for your question. The fastest way from Bankok is to fly to Ranong with Nok Air. From Ranong airport it will take just under 3 hours to reach the resort. We know that we are quite a bit off the beaten track, but with this comes great rewards... a 12km uninhabited beach, an experience of Thailand from 30 years ago before the tourism arrived, beautiful untouched nature, authentic Thai village life. Koh Phra Thong is more of a challenge to get to but worth it.

The average stay at Golden Buddha is 5 nights so I would suggest 4 nights is well worth the stay.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Best wishes
