Stay awhile in paradise
While Phi Phi can be visited in a day trip, it's worth spending a little more and taking in a lazy few days.


We required connecting rooms for the kids, so Holiday Inn Phi Phi was perfect. Our bungalow, while simple, was on the beach and a short walk to the pool.

There is a dive centre, but book before arrival as groups can book out all dives. Our eldest did the 'learn to dive' course, diving in the pool and then supervised out at sea (though it is a shallow dive, obviously for safety).

There are organised tours or hire a long boat and make up your own.


There are a number of little restaurants up the beach if you don't want to eat in the resort, but kids eat free and there is plenty of variety, if you'd rather stay put.

The Sunset Bar requires some exercise, going up many stairs but the cliff top setting is stunning, making it worth the effort.


The ferry takes four hours from Phuket, and long boats will pick you up from the ferry to bring you in to shore. If time is a factor, then get the hotel to organise a speed boat transfer - this is approximately $500 each way, but if flights are pending, it is another option.

The benefit of staying on Phi Phi, is you can avoid the crowds - there's a sleepy, remote feel to the island, and you can hit the coves and beaches before the day trippers arrive.

It is indeed, an island paradise.
