Ko Phra Thong is over 20,000 acres, and less than 5% of the island has seen any development. Since 2001, the island has been part of the Mu Ko Ra – Ko Phra Thong National Park. The biodiversity on the island is impressive and includes turtles, dugongs, dolphins, and 137 species of birds including the last significant population of Lesser Adjutant Stork in Thailand.
In addition to its fine beaches, Ko Phra Thong has vast mangrove swamps and wide, open stretches of savannah teeming with wildlife. Birdlife is incredibly rich with over a hundred species having been sighted on the island.
Beach & Bay
The lodge offers both a beach that stretches as far as the eye can see and calm protected bay with shallow clear water.
Small deserted tropical islands with rocks and rainforest are dotted in the waters just outside the lodge.
Literally, just outside the lodge, you will find a real savannah - more like Kenya than Thailand. This is a great place to enjoy a glass of wine on the hood of a jeep to the warm glow of sundown.
At the end of the bay, you find a system of small mangrove streams that takes the mind to an Amazon adventure.
Walking the sandy path of the lodge is like a meditative journey in the vibrant jungle of lush plantations, hornbill birds and wild hibiscus flowers.
In addition to the vast natural diversity, Koh Phra Thong offers vibrant wildlife from deers, dolphins, monkeys and a rich birdlife with 137 including the iconic hornbill bird and the rare adjutant crane.
