Phi Phi - a paradise lost? Read what backpackers discovered once, how the tourism industry has developped the island and how the story has gone on after the Tsunami in 2004 on travelfish.org. Informations on flora and fauna you find on the site of Hat Noppharat Thara - Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park

PP Charlie Beach Resort: From 1400 Bath.


Phi Phi Palms Residence: From 1450 Bath. Rooms in a longhouse, whose structure survived the Tsunami. "Without the bungalows of pre-tsunami years, this resort has lost a little of its flavour, however it is still a good place to stay", finds travelfish.org


Phi Phi Anita Resort: From 1200 Bath.


Phi Phi Viewpoint Resort: From 1200 Bath. About ten minutes walking distance from the beach. You walk up to the roooms, but the views "compensate", as travelfish.org notes. See pictures by Staciek and Наталья


Phi Phi Arboreal Resort: From 1700 Bath.


P.P. Casita: Small bungalows, larger chalets and rooms in a hotel-complex. "The swimming pool is quite the envy of the surrounding resorts with its suave infinity edge and flashy sun loungers", notes travelfish.org.

Phitharom PP Resort: From 1900 Bath. You have to climb up some stairs to the villas, but thanks to climbing you will have good views from your romm-balconies. "Worth the money if you are looking for that cool, traditional design feel", comments travelfish.org. See Maggie O's picture of the pool.

Ciao Bella: At the beach front, beneath PP Twin Palms. Hexagonal bungalows made from teak wood. Good Thai and Italian restaurant (picture by Umberto Giovi), but: You are disturbed by "the noise wars between Apache, Ibiza and Slinky's bars", as travelfish.org describes it.


PP Twin Palm Bungalows: From 800 Bath. Basic and small bamboo bungalows close to the beach (picture by gangrenetriplets). "If you share one with a partner, you'd better like each other a hell of a lot", points travelfish.org out. There are also concrete rooms with aircon, a better choice. But a lot of music of young people around at night!



Ton Sai Beach

Tonsai Bay


Mama Beach Residence: From 1900 Bath. Good reviews on tripadvisor.com


Sand Seaview Resort:


Phi Phi Island Cabana Hotel: From 7000 Bath. Pro's according to travelfish.org: Stunning pool (see picture by crcrowle), big rooms with great seaviews and fine dining options. "On the downside, it's huge, garish, made from block cement, and the only hotel you can spot from the ocean."

Picture Kullez


Phi Phi Banyan Villa: From 1800 Bath.


Chao Koh Phi Phi Lodge: From 950 Bath.


Phi Phi Don Chukit Resort:


PP Andaman Legacy:


Phi Phi Villa Resort: From 2200 Bath.

Paradise Pearl Bungalow: See pictures by ptit-panda, Dustin Rudgers and Michael.


Paradise Resort: From 1300 Bath. Specialized in rooms for families. See pictures by trent_maynard and Tom & Evi


Long Beach Bungalows: "The fan-only rooms are fairly crappy, and the cheaper ones have squat toilets, but the bedding is clean and you should get a good night's sleep", comments travelfish.org.


P.P. Blue Sky Resort: From 1350 Bath. The sky blue colors don't fit, comments travelfish.org, but: "the interior of the bungalows are excellent and relatively new".

Phi Phi The Beach Resort: From 3300 Bath. 40 bungalows up the hill with "breathtaking views", as travelfish.org mentions.

Ao Toh Ko Bungalows: Excellent review on travelfish.org: "A collection of 32 well-designed, basic bungalows, some set back, others on the beach front." Who is looking for peace and quiet, finds it especially in the huts called "The Beach" and "The View". See picture by Karen Easterbrock, Sarah and Kristin



Rantee Beach

Picture René Ehrhardt

Rantee is a laid back beach. You cannot find bungalows with aircon here (electricity only on evenings). Because there are some bars, the nights can be noisy. But its the best beach for snorkelling. "The main highlight of Rantee is the abundance of stunning hard and soft corals which lie directly off the beach", describes travelfish.org.


Rantee Beach: "The huts are looking worn and tatty" according to travelfish.org.


Rantee Garden/Remember: Four huts on the sand are "very competitive compared to other beaches", you can read on travelfish.org.

Rantee Hut: "Simple but charming little place", says the review on travelfish.org. Nice pictures on boardtrekkingthai.com and by Joe and Tessa in Korea



Phak Nam Bay

Phi Phi Relax Beach Resort: From 900 Bath. "Grass hut, with spiders, lizards, snakes and roaches, but also with a kick-ass view", meesherson comments this picture. See also picture by ildikó



Loh Ba Kao Bay

Good for swimming. During tide longtail boats cannot reach the beach, you have to wade for around hundred metres.

Phi Phi Island Village Resort And Spa: From 4200 Bath. The speedboat of the resort leaves Phuket at 13.30 and the resort at 10.30. You can walk to Tonsai Bay (1.30 hours through jungle). A lot of excellent reviews on tripadvisor.com. "Even the standard rooms (that is to say, Superior Bungalows) are superb", adds travelfish.org.

Phi Phi Lagoon Resort
: From 1100 Bath.



Haad Laem Thong (Palm Beach)

A community of sea gypsies (Chao Leh) are living here, running food stalls and shops. This beach has enough room and is not crowded, because it's away from the centre.


Phi Phi Natural Resort: From 2350 Bath. It surrounds the primary school. The review on travelfish.org is critical: "The Natural isn't worthy of its current price tag and the resort is decaying."

Zeavola Phi Phi Resort: From 7900 Bath. "It would be hard to find a place that better combines the joys of nature with the pleasures of wealth", notes travelfish.org.

PP Erawan Palms Resort: From 2800 Bath. "Its location in the middle of the beach is a plus and the resort does offer everything you'd expect from a place in this price range, but it does suffer from its proximity to other high-end resorts", comments travelfish.org


Holiday Inn Phi Phi Island: From 3510 Bath. "This Holiday Inn has to number among the best that this chain has to offer", comments travelfish.org
