The Thai route is teeming with rich culture and endless stretches of natural beauty. Think: limestone islands, hidden lagoons, fire dancers, thatched beachfront bars, pad thai to die for and, of course, the freshest coconut water straight from nature's larder. Life on this exotic route is pleasant and so are its people. There are 5-20 yachts in the fleet each week.
Welcome to Phuket – the Pearl of the Andaman. Thailand’s largest island and second most popular destination, famous for its vibrant markets buzzing beach bars and beautiful villas. We will set sail from Yacht Haven marina, situated only 15 minutes from Phuket International Airport.
On route to Krabi you will see Chicken Head Island, and immediately understand where it got it's bizarre name from. After a spot of snorkelling there, continue onto Krabi and prepare to be awestruck by the impossibly angular limestone cliffs protruding out of the aquarium like waters. Once the ‘pinch-me’ feeling wears off after spending the day reveling in the beauty and culture of Krabi, get ready for one of the world’s most spectacular sunsets to be seen from Railay beach.
A true barefoot beauty with an eclectic mashup of cultures in the west side beach bars… a little thing we like to call: Rasta-Thai. Sit back under a ramshackle hut, sip a Singha beer and smell the tantalizing spices from the local kitchen.
Travelling to Koh Lanta south you will come across a hidden gem – the Emerald Cave in Koh Muk, which is an absolute must-see. Once you've reached the bottom of Koh Lanta island, hop off the yacht and head to the luxury 5 star Palmai Resort and Spa for some pampering or fine dine at the restaurant if you feel like a feast.
Koh Phi Phi’s stunning looks have received more fame than co-star, Leonardo Dicaprio, in their joint appearance in hollywood film “The Beach.” Koh Phi Phi is the postcard picture of Thailand, with luminous green-blue waters, colourful long-tail boats and breathtaking limestone cliffs.
Enjoy an early start watching the sunrise and having breakfast at the beautiful Maya Bay; a circular lagoon on the west coast of Koh Phi Phi Leh. Continue the sail onto Koh Maphrao, a tiny peaceful isle located minutes from Phuket. Also known as Coconut Island, the the idyllic tropical haven is home to the most exclusive of Thailand resort properties, The Village. Here we experience an authentic candlelit dinner on the beach under a sky full of stars.
