While most of our guests come to BABA Ecolodge to unwind and enjoy ultimate natural escapism, there are plenty of possibilities to fill your day with exciting adventures and activities. Our experiences range from adventurous exploring to relaxing and recreational, but all in collaboration with nature.
Thailand’s Surin Islands remain one of the undiscovered gems of South East Asia. The granite islands are covered in tropical evergreen forest, fringed by white sandy beaches and mangrove. There are many beautiful coral reefs, making the Surin Islands a paradise for snorkelling.
Behind the resort, the mangrove extends far into the heart of the island. Here you can glide through the wild with the resort’s sea kayaks and experience monkey families and tropical birds doing their dailies.
Watch the sun go down while enjoying a glass of chilled rose served on the helmet of an old military jeep. The resort itself consists of lush virgin jungle, so you will be surprised when you find that the place is surrounded by authentic savannah scenery like in Africa.
Yoga classes are twice daily at 8am and 4.30pm. Hatha-based creative and often dynamic Vinyasa flow is offered for the morning yoga class. Afternoon classes include aspects of meditation and Pranayama (breathing techniques), and gentle yoga. Everyone is welcome as adjustments can be made to ensure enjoyment for all skill levels.
The island is known for having an amazing bird life and is the enthusiast’s paradise with a sea of different species.
If you fancy a morning fishing, a local fishermen will pick you up at the bay in his long tail to take you to one of his favourite spots. You will be accompanied by our guide. The trip involves a 40mn long tail ride to the reef. Once there, it is traditional line fishing on the side of the boat, baited with calamari, and a dip in the
sea if it gets too hot.
The trip to Ko Ra, across the bay from BABA Ecolodge, involves a 15-minute speed boat ride. The trek starts by ascending up into Koh Ra’s permanent rainforest, then crosses the island in the shade of the rainforest canopy. The trek includes a stop over picnic at a secluded beach, where you can relax and cool off in the Andaman
