Looking for a great family escape?
Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort, an idyllic beachfront escape off Thailand’s Andaman Sea coast, has introduced new family packages.
It has upgraded its facilities and has a series of programs designed to suit those seeking a luxurious getaway and also families looking for relaxing fun in the sun while also helping to support the resort’s ongoing environmental conservation efforts.
Following an impressive AU$46.1 million renovation, Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort has 14 new spacious Beachfront Junior Suites and 12 Hillside Pool Villas, enveloped in tropical rainforest and featuring sweeping views of Loh Ba Gao Bay.
The 79sqm suites are situated on an 800-metre-long private white sand beach and boast spacious balconies looking over the Andaman ocean. Meanwhile, the 110sqm villas offer complete privacy, each coming with its own plunge pools.
Guests staying in the suites and villas also have access to a range of exclusive benefits including a dedicated host for the duration of their stay who serves breakfast on the balcony and provides priority check-in at the resort’s Ocean Lounge. A one-time complimentary mini-bar, complimentary High Tea from 3.00 – 5.00pm each day, and specially prepared whirlpool baths every evening add to the luxury appeal.
While adults unwind amidst 70 acres of tropical splendor, younger guests can take part in the resort’s engaging and educational kids program known as the Phi Phi Family Playground. Child-friendly leisure activities for Little Islanders aged 3 – 10 years old include Little Swimmers and Junior Cooking classes, Recycled Life creative crafts and a Creative Coconuts activity that follows the humble coconut’s journey from tree to table.
Children aged 10 – 16 years old can take the Young Survivor course to learn traditional island survival tricks, or journey explore tidal forests by joining the Mangrove Explorer excursion before working off some energy at the Seaside Boot Camp. The resort also features a Coral Reef Nursery to help take care of the environment around the resort’s house reef and will soon launch a dedicated Marine Discovery Centre.
Eco Friendly Practices
In addition to encouraging young guests to care for the environment, the resort is also committed to implementing eco-friendly practices throughout the property. One such initiative is the use of a reverse osmosis system that provides 20,000 litres of clean water per hour by processing rain water that has been collected and stored during the rainy season.
