The Ko Phi Phi Archipelago is made up of a stunning collection of breathtaking islands. It is a place where the roaring waves and soft stands combine to give you a feeling of paradise. It is barely inhabited and lets you experience nature in its truest form.
A total of 6 islands make up this archipelago. They are scattered closely in the Andaman Sea about 48 kms east from Phuket. The archipelago has some of the most fascinating creations of nature which includes chiselled cliffs, plenty of hills, white sanded beaches, gorgeous corals and an intriguingly colourful and vibrant marine life. Inhabited only since 1950, the un-spoilt nature of the island is rather obvious from the moment you step on its shores. It has a fresh feel about it and a soothing ambience.
The people too, ardently religious, are warm and welcoming and reside only in the largest 2 islands of the archipelago which are Ko Phi Phi Don and the Koh Phi Phi Lee. Ko Phi Phi Don occupies a total of 28 kms and is known for its fantastic diving spots, its back to back curving bays and the Loh Dalam.
Ko Phi Phi Le is much smaller in size. Occupying only 6.6 kms, the island is made completely of limestone with beautiful crystal clear waters surrounding. This island has many famous and intriguing attractions which includes the Viking Cave, the serpent like Boulder Rock and the many remnants of Arab, European and Chinese sailboats which gives evidence of this island being used as a transition point for ships passing by. Another 4 smaller yet equally beautiful islands complete this rich archipelago. A treasure-trove of authentic island beauty, this is a “must visit “destination in Thailand.
A beautiful Koh Samui resort is a perfect way to compliment a spectacular holiday in this part of the world. Anantara Lawana Resort & Spa Koh Samui is that Chaweng hotel that you would definitely want to choose. Boasting impeccable luxury and a soothing beachside ambience, this hotel most perfectly reflects the feel of the archipelago with a touch of class to it.
