Phi Phi Island
A Sofitel Krabi Signature Tour to Phi Phi Island is a highlight of any visit to Krabi.Located just 45 minutes from Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra by the resort’s luxury speedboat service, Phi Phi Island is actually an island group that comes under the administration of Krabi Province. The two main islands are Phi Phi Don, the largest, and Phi Phi Le.
The islands came to worldwide fame when Phi Phi Le was used as a location for the film The Beach, which starred Leonardo DiCaprio.
The islands when viewed from the boat rise from the sea with sheer cliffs that tower overhead, and then give way to white beaches backed by jungle. Lazing, trekking along the green jungle paths, exploring hidden caves and snorkelling on coral reefs teaming with bright fish are the main Phi Phi activities. Our Phi Phi Island boat excursion has seven stops, at Monkey Bay, Maya Bay, Viking Cave, Bamboo Island, Ao Noi Bay, Phi Leh Lagoon, and Tonsai Bay. The excursion takes seven hours and includes a picnic lunch with canapés, snacks, seasonal fruits, soft drinks and water. Beach mats, towels and snorkelling equipment are provided. Insurance and national park fee is included in the package, and Sofitel’s skilful excursion team supervises the trip.
Railay Beach Krabi
Not far from Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra, around a rocky headland and accessible only by boat, Railay Beach Krabi presents an extraordinary world , for in just one small peninsula you will find gorgeous white sand beaches, soaring limestone cliffs, viewpoints, caves and a lagoon hidden inside the cliffs.
There are no roads at Railay Beach Krabi, only footpaths. No buses, no cars: just boats. Although it is actually connected to the mainland, the spectacular peninsula is effectively cut off from the rest of Krabi by limestone headlands and steep jungle valleys. The very picture of tropical paradise , Railay offers lazy days and adventure forays. One of the top Krabi activities is island hopping and so our five-hour Sofitel Krabi Signature Tour to Railay Beach Krabi also takes in Chicken Island, Poda Island, and Tup and Mor islands.
We provide a luxury speedboat service complete with a personal leisure butler who will see to your every need. The trip is supervised by Sofitel’s skilful excursion team and includes a picnic lunch with seasonal fruits, soft drinks and water. Beach mats, towels and snorkelling equipment are provided. Insurance and national park fee is included in the package.
Hong Island is uninhabited except for the birds, white-faced gibbons and monitor lizards that can be spotted on the main white sand beach. The island has dramatic twin bays on its east side, and two rockier beaches on its north shore. The rest of the island consists of high cliffs surrounding a large lagoon at its interior: the “chamber” to which its Thai name, “Hong”, refers.
Discover Hong Island with our excursion by luxury speedboat . Our boat captain and Leisure Butler will whisk you to the nearby island, just ten minutes from the resort, where you will enjoy the powder white sand beach and crystal clear water with pristine coral and tropical fish. Our Hong Island excursion takes about five hours and includes a picnic of your choice, soft drink, water, tea or coffee, fresh local fruit, national park fees, mask and snorkel, beach mats, towels, insurance, kayaking at Hong lagoon and the experienced service of Sofitel’s skilful excursion team.
Less well known than neighbouring Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh, Bamboo Island boasts gorgeous scenery, crystal waters and white sand beaches, and is an ideal destination for those looking to escape for just a few hours .
Bamboo Island lies about five kilometres off the northern tip of Phi Phi Don. The island is almost heart shaped, and is entirely surrounded by a strip of white sand. Its central part is covered with lush vegetation including the bamboo that gave its name to the island. On the northeastern side of the island, under the shade of the trees, a small bar serves drinks and snacks.
