Idyllic beachfront resort, which features its own Marine Discovery Centre, unveils a range of excursions to tropical islands and dive spots all across the acrhipelago
Koh Phi Phi, Thailand (16 January, 2019): Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort, the upscale oasis on southern Thailand’s Phi Phi Island, is inviting guests to explore the Andaman Sea with a series of eco-sensitive excursions to remote beaches, idyllic islets and dramatic dive spots all across this exotic archipelago.
With its tropical climate, dramatic geology and diverse marine life, Thailand’s Andaman Sea is a breath-taking environment that houses many of Asia’s most iconic coastal attractions. These include Maya Bay, the turquoise lagoon at Koh Phi Phi Leh which was made famous by the Leonardo diCaprio movie, The Beach.
Maya Bay was closed last year to preserve its pristine environment - a conscientious move that brought the important issues of responsible tourism and conservation in Thailand to global attention. Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort, which operates a dedicated Marine Discovery Centre, welcomed this decision and is now inviting visitors to discover more remote parts of this spectacular seascape, away from the tourist crowds.
Under the resort’s “Island Explorations”, guests can embark on private boat trips to the most exquisite parts of the Andaman archipelago, including island jewels like Koh Pai, Koh Yung, Koh Poda, Koh Kai and Koh Mor. Pristine beaches and coral reefs await, with plenty of opportunities for barefoot relaxation, snorkelling excursions and beachfront picnics. Kayaking trips also allow guests to access remote coves, and couples can enjoy a “Romantic Rendezvous” that concludes with chilled Champagne at sunset.
The “Diving Programs” meanwhile, enable guests to explore the Andaman’s vibrant underwater world with professional instructors from Phi Phi Island Dive Village, the resort’s PADI-certified dive centre. Sharks, rays, eels, turtles and a spectacular array of colourful fish await beneath the glistening ocean waves.
Led by a resident marine biologist, the Marine Discovery Centre is at the heart of Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort’s on-going efforts to preserve the Andaman Sea. With indoor and outdoor exhibition areas, displays of the area’s sea life, a video room and a mini aquarium, this innovative and interactive facility provides a fascinating window into the undersea world.
Guests can now learn all about the Andaman Sea at the Marine Discovery Centre before heading out on their own journey of discovery, safe in the knowledge that their trip will have a limited impact on the marine environment.
Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort has also created a series of special accommodation packages that allow families, couples and local residents to discover the wonders of the Andaman Sea. CLICK HERE to learn more!
Whether you want to dive or snorkel in crystal clear waters, unwind with a picnic on powder-soft sandy beaches, or simply soak up the spectacular seascapes with your loved one, Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort’s eco-sensitive marine excursions will create memories that last a lifetime, while leaving no lasting trace on the environment.
