Outrigger Phi Phi Island Resort and SpaLike1

This paradise, picture perfect hotel is located in Loh Ba Gao Bay on the northeast coast of Koh Phi Phi Island. Our trip was an extremely long one, but everything was well worth it once we arrived at the hotel and relaxed in the breathtaking infinity pool next to the beach that can really drown any sorrow you may have in the past and the swim bar is perfect for sunsets drinks. The buffet breakfast is so rich with different variety of food, fruits and drinks. The in-dining restaurants are also delicious, try the Ruan Thai Restaurant which specializes in Thai food! The resort has the best beach, clearest water, most serene views and the rooms are exactly what you pay for along with the amenities. Whichever room you take, expect it to be clean and worth the money. The hotel is a bit pricey, but you can never go wrong with it’s location and resort facilities and the cleanliness of the rooms is impeccable. It is very close to perfection staying here. It is a very picture postcard perfect hotel and location. Koh Phi Phi is paradise on earth.

How to get there: To arrive to Outrigger Phi Phi Island Resort and Spa, you will need to travel from either Phuket or Krabi or Koh Lanta (by Ferry 1 Nov – 30 Apr). They can provide for all land transfers upon arrival and departure from Krabi International Airport or any Hotel in the Krabi area to the pier.  Total approximate time frame for land & sea transfer is 2h and a half by public ferry. {In a nut shell you can travel from Phuket to Krabi, then Krabi take a boat or ferry to to Koh Phi Phi Island resort and Spa, or directly from Phuket.}

We paid for the boat transportation to the resort which included pickup from our hotel in Phuket and transfer on a private boat. It was a little pricey at $70 US each way, but worth it. Sometimes in Thailand, you would need to pay extra for a bit more comfort. The boat ride was definitely worth it.

Cons: The only problem with this hotel is that you have to pay for Wi Fi and Internet. One would expect free internet at a resort like this where you are paying top prices. It was not cheap either (about £1 for 15 minutes).

Activities: The activities you need to do are endless… go to Ton Sai Bay, walking up to the viewpoint is a must and worth every step! Also in the little village behind the resort, where you can chose from the wide variety of activities. Go snorkeling, see the turtles and to Maya Bay first thing in the morning, before it gets too crowded and enjoy a bit the beach. Swim in the wonderful lagoon, visit Monkey Bay and Bamboo island (really worth the visit, transparent water, beautiful). Visit Tonsai one night. It was 1700 BAHT for 4 hours, but you can share the boat with other people if you want (and share the price of the boat). Visit Bamboo Island and Mosquito Island and booked a private speed boat to take you to Krabi to see various islands and beaches. These trips were breathtaking, we booked all the trips outside the resort, it was less expensive. Look for Knock Out bar to book these trips – ask for Chet!

We would definitely go back!! Thailand is ALWAYS an option any time of the year! If you go, let us know, we will join!!

  • I’ve been in limbo with my photography and experiencing some sort of a creative block. 
The digital world can either inspire you or exhaust you from repeatedly the same quotes, topic of conversations, images, style, colors, places, food etc. 
I’ve promised myself since the very start, not to fall into a trap of measuring & using my passion for photography based on the number of likes and comments on Instagram, but instead, to shoot, post, open my heart and soul through challenging myself to be more creative through my lens and be more of myself, in between dreams and reality and most importantly, for the feeling to be real...
As creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes, Art is knowing which ones to keep... So bare with me a little until I find myself again...
  • The trips we host on @travelwithtjd on our polar journeys for the past years has been one of the most exciting experiences of my life and I’m so incredibly grateful for everything I’ve learned, experiences, felt, seen and for the people I’ve met on our trips! 
Our season starts this September with different groups traveling with @dennisstever and I to Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Finland! 
We have also released our travel dates for 2020 and with new destinations too and new experiences. I hope you can join us!! Click the link in my bio to learn more or follow @travelwithtjd for updates!
  • Lebanon in summer is all about exploring. Found this new hip beach bar on the coast of Byblos. The graffiti on the wall, the hanging hammocks in the water and the vibe, makes this place one of the cutest beach clubs I’ve seen so far. I love my beautiful home 🇱🇧
  • The last time I switched my laptop on was 5 days ago. The last time that happened was exactly a year ago. My phone is most of the time misplaced far away from me, my camera is still in my bag, my mind is switched off and I’m surrounded with love 💕and music 🎶. So happy to be back in Lebanon on my official summer break.
  • Home sweetest home ❤️
  • I love the the 3 AM version of people... Honest, vulnerable and real.
  • I have some sort of mental block this morning... which is a good thing so... Happy Thursday ☀️
  • This is a (long) thank you post... To my teachers.
Thank you for showing me my true strength... Not only physical strength, but more importantly mental strength.
Thank you for allowing me to let go... Whenever I feel I need a break from the world, your shala is the first place I run to... and when I’m away, it’s the first place I think of when I practice on my own, miles away. The sound of my breathing alone, takes me back to the exact spot where I place my mat... and I’m fully transported back to the stillness and awareness. 
Thank you for giving me a safe place to seek connection & allowing me to breathe... when I’m at my most vulnerable, you’ve made it ok for my tears to roll down my face in Savasana or during a posture, open up and just be me without any judgement. 
Thank you for offering so much of yourself to allow me to grow through my practice... Thank you for teaching me the true meaning of yoga, how to practice not only on the mat, but off the mat too... Yoga is a natural state of mind and not whether or not you can touch your toes. 
The light in me honors the light in you. Happy New moon 
Namaste

  • I’m still going through the photos I’ve taken during my trip to Menorca. Still can’t believe how beautiful the island is!
  • Last couple of days at work before heading back home 🇱🇧. What are your summer plans? Anything exciting?
  • Your memory feels like home to me.
So whenever my mind wanders, it always finds its way back to you 💫
  • Someone at work asked me the other day what my goals were... I told them to be happy. To be really really really F**** happy. What’s yours?
