The allure of this island has always fascinated me.....after leaving an incredible weekend on Raily Bay: Krabi,we take off on a 1hr and 45min nice ferry boat ride across the Andaman Sea to Koh Phi Phi. When you first arrive to Ton Sai pier, they charge you 20baht for the maintenance of the port. We greet our bus boy whom we recognize as he is holding the resort sign and wait for others who have reservations to the place. He loads up our luggage in a cart and we all walk down a busy promenade lined with restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, everything you can think of....a great way to take in all the craziness of Koh Phi Phi.....not a sleepy little island that we all think of......it is happening here! The resort is a bit far from the pier, but that is what makes it so special because you get the bes of both worlds....the nice white sand turquiose beach and the action right within close proximity. The resort is very nice and clean, the staff were all so pleasant and accomodating no problems at all with any of them. The bungalows were just wonderful, in little stilts and just a stone away from the best part of Koh Phi Phi Don. The property here is right by Carpe Diem, playing nice grooves all day/night long, the white dand beach and the beautiful water is just breath-taking. There is a little grassy knowl that you could pack a picnic and chill in the shade with your loved one and than strip down to your swimsuit and splash in the water. It is all in front of the resort. They have the best property I think in the island. The rooms are big and comfy, with a nice A/C the decor is a little out-dated but who cares, when your going to spend most of your time outdoors anyways. The pool is wonderful and nice to lounge and sunbathe peacfully. We ate at many of the restaurants that were on the strip, our favorite place is called Nemo. Home-made cooking by mom herself, the waitress is the owner and her mother is the cook. A small little dive super inexpensive and Thai food made with love.....what more can you ask for. I was quite surprise by how develop Koh Phi Phi is. On the other side of the island is LohDaLum Bay, this is where all the backpackers go, it is a bit on the rough side but where there is more cheap eats and hotels but not a very nice beach. I prefer the Tonsai bay side of the island. Many however come here for the excursion, you can't leave this island without experiencing a long tail boat ride to Maya Bay (think the movie "The Beach") an incredible explorationg through beautiful rock formation, snorkling in clear blue water, going through deep island jungle to be greeted by the beauty of Maya Bay....Priceless! You could find things to do in all hours on this island, there are plenty of night parties, fire shows, and other activities to keep you occupied. This villa is the place to stay in Koh Phi Phi!
