White sandy beaches give way to a lush and hilly tropical jungle
Koh Phangan is Thailands fifth biggest island, and is accessible by ferry from Koh Samui. Long white sandy beaches give way to a lush and hilly tropical jungle interior meaning that you can be both active, and take the opportunity to really relax in your hand picked resort as well. The north of the island is where some would say the most appealing beaches lie – unspoiled white sand fringed with palms, where the water is perfect for snorkelling.
Although famous for “Full Moon Parties” Koh Phangan does offer a balance and for those that are looking for more zen than an all-night affair, the resorts here will offer that experience with their serene surroundings and relaxing scented spas.
Luxury holidays in Koh Phangan will offer you the perfect mix of rest and play. Immerse yourself in the tropical interior. Take a jeep ride through the jungle to discover the amazing and changing landscape that makes up the centre of the island. Stop at a secluded beach on the North-West coast and take a chance to snorkel in waters so clear they will take your breath away. After a day of exploring, make your way back to your resort and indulge yourself in a relaxing Thai massage after which you can enjoy an exotic cocktail whilst watching the sunset from your resort.
Sovereign has the perfect mix of villas and suites, with both garden and ocean views available, will give you the perfect base for your stay on this wonderful island, and when you couple these with the fantastic restaurants and winery that are part of the resort, you know you’ll have made the right choice.
