Nangyuan Island

Submitted by zackbeseda on March 2, 2013 7 Comments

If you’re looking for a island vacation a little off the beaten path then Nangyuan Island off the coast of Thailand is definitely worth checking out.  This hidden oasis is just minutes from Koh Tao, another of Thailand’s islands.  But Nangyuan is designed specifically to cater to travelers seeking a tranquil and relaxing getaway that can’t be found just anywhere.  Whether you’re seeking a place to unwind or if you want to dive into the crystal clear ocean waters for an exciting new underwater experience, this secret Thailand resort is the perfect choice.

When you’re on Nangyuan Island (or Koh Nangyuan as it’s known to natives), there are no busy streets, bustling crowds or heavy traffic to deal with.  Just sandy beaches, warm winds and ocean as far as you can see.  If you’ll be diving during your stay, there are accommodations discounts for divers as well as diving tours and classes for all skill levels.  All classes are guided by multilingual experts to help you brush up your diving skills or to pick out the best spots for more seasoned divers to see some underwater wildlife like fish, coral and sharks!

And as for those accommodations, this island resort offers enough options to fit just about any traveling situation or budget.  From the 2 person Beach Villa with an ocean-side porch and double king-sized bed to the Grand Family Room which is able to easily house 7 guests, every room on Nangyuan Island is fully outfitted with all the comforts and amenities you’d expect from a high end resort.  There are even different rooms depending on what view you’d like to see from your window.  If that ocean beach view isn’t your cup of tea, then you can choose from several room types with a splendid view of the sea and mountains deeper into the island.  Of course, the island is so close to the larger of Thailand’s islands, Nangyuan makes a wonderful and easy day trip as well.

Now, for something truly unique, guests can travel between islands on the world’s very first intra-island zip-line!  Spots fill up fast but the zip-line is a definitely must-see when visiting Nangyuan.  Another island mainstay that can’t be skipped is the resort’s restaurant, especially since it’s the only one on the island.  The Nangyuan restaurant offers selections of Thai and Western cuisine so there are both familiar dishes and more traditional options to choose from.

Even if you’ve been to Thailand before, a stay at Nangyuan Island for diving in exquisite waters, checking out some spectacular views and hopping on that zip-line for a rush of adrenaline just can’t be duplicated.  The island’s only restaurant can be a bit pricey so you can also consider staying on another island and coming down to Nangyuan for a day.  But no matter how you experience this Thailand island resort, you’ll have plenty of great stories and memories to share when you get back home.  For now, hop onto lowfares and discover your own great deals for travel to and from Thailand!
