Away from the tourist crowds, Koh Phra Thong is a barely inhabited and gloriously unspoilt remote island. Backing onto a pristine nature reserve, and fringed by coconut plantations, Golden Buddha Beach Resort comprises 28 privately owned traditional wooden homes, which are sprinkled along the shoreline with a sheltered bay, and a beautiful and deserted 12 kilometre beach.

Your Hosts & The Team
“So many peaceful places in Thailand and elsewhere have become too overrun by tourists. Not here. Our mission is to preserve what has become a rarity—an unspoilt island far away from it all with privately owned houses by the sea, where time seems to have stopped.”
Welcome to 普吉岛
This resort practices sustainable tourism by minimizing waste and its environmental impact. It recycles all their glass, cardboard, paper, and cans, and only offers draft beer and non-bottled water. The resort has no freezers, and all food is delivered fresh daily from the market or purchased directly from local fishermen and farmers. In addition to its organic gardens, the resort has a nursery where they grow fresh herbs and vegetables. Food waste is collected to feed pigs and chickens, to produce compost for the
gardens, and branches and leaves are used to create mulch.
90% of Golden Buddha Beach Resort’s staff comes from the island. Every employee is paid fair wages and receives good benefits. Additionally, the resort is very active within the local community, and is also currently working with the island’s authorities to set up micro loans for farmers to produce organic eggs and chickens.
“Facing the Indian Ocean and set along a remote 12 kilometre beach, this very secretly hidden eco-retreat situated on a remote island in the Andaman offers the opportunity to enjoy nature and the sea in a simple, authentic setting. Check the Ceramic Workshop.”
Kim, the discoverer.
