Far from the noise and crowds of Phuket, on the mostly uninhabited island of Koh Phra Thong, is a resort offering an escape from civilisation. Comprised of 28 private residences, Golden Buddha Beach Resort is one of the few accommodation options on this isle, and the only one with exclusive access to a 12-kilometre stretch of unspoilt beach.
Traditional wooden bungalows are scattered throughout the resort grounds, connected by weaving paths that lead to the clubhouse. With a bar, lounge and dining room, it’ll be hard to tear yourself away from this central hub, but when you do yoga, snorkelling, fishing, cooking classes and massages await.
Prices start from US$150.
