Access to BABA Ecolodge is from either Ranong or Phuket. Ranong is the closest airport with several Nok Air flights a day from Don Mueang Airport and even more frequent flights with a variety of carriers between both Bangkok airports and Phuket.

 

Travel time from Phuket is a little longer, 2.5 hours to Kuraburi pier before joining a 90-minute boat ride to Ko Phra Thong and the lodge.

The BABA staff will arrange transportation from either Phuket Airport or Ranong Airport at the time of booking. If you plan on making your own way to Kuraburi Pier you need to ensure you arrive there before 4 pm when the last boat leaves. Air travel to either Ranong or Phuket should be planned accordingly.

 

Thailand is best described as tropical for most of the year, but there are many variations in weather patterns across the country. On Ko Phra Thong the climate is determined by two seasons – the wet and the dry. Currently BABA Ecolodge is opened to guests only during the dry season.

 

dry season | october to april

The dry season is characterised by light to moderate northeasterly winds. November is the coldest month of the year, with typical temperature during the day of 28–30ºC, and night temperature 5–7ºC lower.

Temperature gradually rises from November until May, with very little rainfall experienced during this period. In January, you can expect temperatures of 30-32ºC with nights cool enough to sleep under a light blanket, whilst by April temperatures can climb up to 35ºC and over, accompanied by occasional downpours, usually late in the afternoon.

 

wet season | may to september:

The monsoon season on the Andaman coast is characterised more by high seas and strong breezes, than by the amount of rainfall. Generally the monsoon starts in May and lasts through until October, by which time the seas have returned to normal.

Rainfall during this period usually consists of one heavy downpour in the afternoon, followed by very clear skies. It is also possible that it rains much of the day for two or three days at a stretch, but this is more common in June and September. During the monsoon, islands in Burmese waters one hundred kilometers away from Golden Buddha can sometimes be visible from the beach, and at these times we enjoy particularly exquisite sunsets. Spectacular thunderstorms during the night also provide beautiful lightening shows over the Andaman sea.

 

BABA is opening on December 1st.
