Your Host & The Team

Olivier and KietOlivier and Kiet
“Krabi is arguably one of its nicest provinces of Thailand. 12 years ago, we had this dream of a hidden place by the sea, away from the crowd but easy to tour from, a blend of authenticity and comfort. Our good fortune was to find this land nearby the fishermen village of Tha Lane. It was just perfectly located, remote without being lost, and right in the middle of some of the greatest must-see spots. At the time though, it was only jungle. We built our Passe-Temps from scratch, with the ambition to create a Thai style version of a French “maison d’hôte”. This is our home, and it is our story as well, and since we take it so much at heart, we try to welcome our guests personally, take them ourselves on excursion as much as we can, and nothing pleases us more than to see them coming back as friends.”

Welcome to Phuket

A coveted Southeast Asia treasure, Phuket is Thailand’s only island province and its most frequented destination. Here, tranquil turquoise waters, white sandy beaches, and world-renowned diving sites are interspersed with soaring limestone cliffs and lush tropical forests. Glimpse at the century old Sino-Portuguese architecture in Old Town, Phuket’s revered landmark Big Buddha, Promthep Cape, and Wat Chalong (home to the famed half buried golden Buddha) and other cultural highlights. Delightful cuisines, and numerous annual festivals including: the festival of lights Loy Kratong, the Thai New Year Songkran, and the Phuket Vegetarian Festival, all form part of the Phuket experience.
