Beautiful Phi Phi Island, Thailand

Let’s Breakfree on Phi Phi Island in Krabi Thailand

The cutest name for a private island, Phi Phi Island in Thailand is just the place you’ll want to shout out, “Let’s Breakfree!”

Life on a secluded, pristine tropical island is great. You get to look out to miles of sea and a gorgeous 800-meter long beach. For the best back-to-nature experience, my vote is the Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort.

Hollywood Movies Shot on Phi Phi Island

Hollywood fell in love with Thailand Island ages ago and there are over 10 movies shot here.

“The Beach” based on a novel by English author Alex Garland was shot on Phi Phi Island.

The story of a young backpacker’s (Leonardo DiCaprio) search for a legendary, idyllic and isolated beach untouched by tourism has drawn many travelers to Thailand.

Phi Phi island when approached by boat, rise from the sea like a fortress-like a pirate movie filled with swashbuckling adventures.

The sheer cliffs that tower overhead is jaw-dropping. The sight of the beachfront against a jungle backdrop sets resets your internal clock.

When you step on the beach, you zone out. There is no schedule here. No hustle and bustle. No reason whatsoever to hurry.


Ko Phi Phi Don is the largest island in the Ko Phi Phi archipelago, Krabi Province, Thailand. This is the only island in the group with permanent inhabitants.

The Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort located here overlooks the Loh Ba Gao Bay.

The Setting

201 rooms are comprising 189 contemporary Thai style bungalows and 12 private Hillside Pool Villas spread over 70 acres of lush tropical gardens. Best of all there’s a huge custom-design lagoon-shaped pool and a long and elegant beachfront infinity pool.

Ruan Thai

Ruan Thai restaurant is modeled after a traditional Thai house in a tranquil hillside setting with lush tropical greenery. The restaurant is the perfect location to savor the exquisite taste of authentic Thai cuisine.

Culinary Director, Jérôme Chautard said that the top 3 ordered dishes are an assorted Thai appetizer platter for two, tiger prawns served in a tamarind sauce and a steamed whole sea bass with garlic, soy, lime, and chili.

The steamed fish is a classic Thai dish you have to eat by the sea!

The resorts’ all-day dining beachside eatery, Api has extensive and appetizing breakfast spreads.

The breakfast buffet highlight at Api is the bakery and pastry station with fresh-baked loaves of bread, croissants, Danish, mini cakes and the must-try chocolate croissant!

Come sunset, the chilled-out beach bar livens up a notch with live music and delectable cocktails served at Api Bar. The signature cocktail at Api Bar is made fresh with a “baitoey” a local pandan extract. The perfect sundowner, the “Cool Sensation” is made with whiskey, white chocolate, banana cream, pineapple, lemon juice, and grenadine.

Most guests enjoy a succulent surf-and-turf grill with fresh seafood and melt-in-the-mouth imported meats for a romantic dinner.

The new menu launch has a tank of live Boston lobster for diners to choose from and order. The chefs cook the fresh seafood cooked exactly as you like it! For families and sharing there are daily catch and grilled surf & turf platters to choose from.
