Just one hour from our beach in the safety and comfort of our luxury 38 ft boat, Lady Sarojin, the islands are renowned for their underwater beauty, marine life and coral, soft beaches and lush interiors. With reefs that begin only yards from the white sand beaches and a visibility depth of up to 30 metres, the islands offer a superb snorkelling and diving experience, where even novice swimmers can enjoy an exclusive underwater world.
Cruising the Waters of Phang Nga Bay
Cruise at leisure in Phang Nga Bay, only 40 minutes away and renowned for its dramatic limestone islands jutting vertically out of the emerald green water. Enjoy sea canoe journeys and hidden lagoons and caves exposed only at lower tides, and explore quiet beaches and areas of untouched natural beauty from our luxury boat. The bay is also home to a remarkable sea gypsy village built over the water on stilts and with a giant rock monolith guarding its rear. Phang Nga Bay's most famous limestone rock is Tapu Island, also known as James Bond Island, named for its appearance in the film 'The Man With The Golden Gun'.
