Why Stay At Phi Phi Island Village
Experience your private island fantasy at this thatched-roof beachfront escape on the undiscovered Thai island that inspired The Man with the Golden Gun and The Beach.
Location is the trump card at this Thai hideaway, located on gorgeous Phi Phi Island in the Andaman Sea. Surrounded by turquoise bays and sheer limestone cliffs crowned by jungle, the island is so perfectly pristine that Hollywood couldn't resist it as a backdrop for two of Hollywood's most wanderlust-inducing films—The Man with the Golden Gun and The Beach. And the resort, set on a secluded bay on the island's northeast coast, takes full advantage of the scenery: 80 thatched-roof suites and villas are perched on stilts within a coconut grove for unobstructed views of the white-sand beach.
Don't miss a Thai massage at the hotel's Wana Spa. The best treatments are conducted in an open-air bungalow beside the sea.
In addition to four restaurants on-site, the resort offers culinary classes on topics ranging from fruit carving to traditional Thai cuisine; resort chefs will teach you how to make spicy pork salad and spicy coconut soup with green curry.
Arrive at Phuket International Airport (HKT) which is about 30 miles across the sea from the resort. Catch the transfer boat (the hotel's own catamaran) to arrive within about 90 minutes at the resort. The resort staff will be happy to set up both land and sea transfers from Phuket, Krabi or Koh Lanta.49 Moo 8, T. Aonang A. Muang, Phi Phi Island (Krabi), Thailand

Why We Love Phi Phi Island
The smartest way to reach Phi Phi is by boat from Phuket or Krabi. Guests can take the hotel's catamaran from Phuket directly to the resort or opt for the public ferry from Krabi; both journeys take about 90 minutes.
Where to Shop: Ton Sai Bay, Phi Phi island's main village—just a 20-minute water taxi ride from the hotel—is home to a handful of small shops that sell local fruit, diving gear, hammocks, and other tropical island necessities.
Where to Eat: La Grand Bleu in Ton Sai Bay is the island's best stand-alone restaurant, serving a menu that mixes classic French dishes such as magret de canard with inventive Thai dishes, including shrimp raviolis.
Dinner for two $25.
Where to Drink: The thatched-roof Hippies Bar in Ton Sai Bay does its best to re-create the swinging '60s with classic rock tunes, full-moon parties, and fire shows.
Drinks for two $8.
