Welcome to Paradise

Welcome to Paradise. A place where you can lay by the infinity pool while looking out over a calm bay. Where you can kayaking along limestone peaks and have islands to yourself. Where you can binge watch HBO because you've contracted traveler's sickness, wait...what? We'll get to that later.

We said goodbye to our beaches in Phuket and traveled to a private pier. I had my first ever, really first ever in my life, iced coffee as we waited for our boat from Paradise Lodge. We boarded an open air boat and took a forty minute transfer to Koh Yao Noi, a popular islands for local Thai visitors. Upon arrival to Paradise, we were greeted with a cool towel and even cooler welcome drink.

Our room was the gorgeous Plunge Pool Deluxe Studio which boasted incredible views of the ocean and limestone mountains. Paradise rests on the beach adjacent to a bay, which means the turquoise water you see in iconic Thailand photos is not what you're going to witness here. The water is very calm and because of the tide, the seafloor is exposed at certain times of the day. This makes it the ideal location for kayaking as you're not competing with tide and waves as you explore the surrounding islands.

Time at Paradise is ideal for sunset cocktails, lounging by the pool, reading a book in one of the many hammocks or taking in the view from the plunge pool.

And finally, the best food ever....mango sticky rice! Some will say that I ended up getting sick due to the copious amounts that I was eating; but I say...it was soo worth it :)
