Located north of Koh Samui in the southern Gulf of Thailand, Koh Phangan is Thailand’s fifth largest island.  Although the island has history dating back 1000's of years it was 1400AD when passing monks, recognizing Koh Phangan’s tranquility and spiritual significance, settled in Wat Phu Khao Noi just outside Thong Sala.   From that time on, Koh Phangan has been recognized by the Thai people as a place of beauty and spirituality.  The island has been visited by four Kings seeking to connect with its peaceful spirit.  King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) visited more than ten times between 1888 and 1909 and left his royal seal engraved on a rock at Thaan Sadet Waterfall.  

Koh Phangan has become famous for full moon parties, but the island is also becoming an internationally recognized destination for its yoga retreats and eco-tourism.  Outside of Thong Sala and Haad Rin the island’s quiet, lightly developed nature is a refreshing contrast to the frenzy of Koh Samui.  Surat Thani Province has been classified by the Tourism Authority of Thailand as an “Eco-Tourism Zone”, and Koh Phangan is conveniently located for day trips (or overnight stays) to destinations around the province.  Much of Koh Phangan’s interior is designated as National Park land, and more than 90% of the island’s tropical rainforests are virtually untouched.  With an an abundance of wildlife on land and in the sea, Koh Phangan is a nature lover’s paradise. Meditation centres, herbal massage and yoga retreats may be found close to our houses.

We support local environmental initiatives, particularly EcoThailand.org, Trash Hero and Green Cross Beach Clean.
