Koh Racha Island in Phuket
Koh Racha is 30 minutes south of Phuket island way out in the beautiful Andaman sea, a truly exceptional island that has first class diving with excellent visibility. Resorts like the Ban Raya Resort And Spa start from 47 Euro and are well-reviewed. This island get-away is large enough to spend some days beach combing snorkeling and diving or perhaps trekking through the jungle covered hills. The The Racha is the elegant 5 star luxury resort on the island.
Maiton Island in Phuket
The Maiton Resort is an intriguing Island in Phuket. It lies just 20 minutes off Phuket town and is passed on your way out to Phi Phi Island. It is very small island and the 4 star resort is everything that is man-made there. However the remoteness, the diving and snorkeling and the fine dining make this resort worth discovering.
Koh Yao Noi island in Phuket
Koh Yao Noi Resorts are not famous because Koh Yao Noi is stunning to look at but because it is surrounded by the series of cliff islands of Phang Nga Bay in whatever direction you decide to go. This picture perfect scenery is the back drop for some excellent resort accommodation on a quiet under populated, rural and charming island. This island is large enough to have "flat" biking tours so you can get to explore at your own pace. Very rewarding and peaceful, this island destination is highly recommended by hotelATM.com and phi-phi.com.
