Guests at Phulay Bay, A Ritz Carlton Reserve, can combine an three-night resort stay with a three-night private yacht charter in the Andaman Sea.
After spending three nights in a Lek Bunnang-designed Royal Beach Villa at the resort, which also has six restaurants and an ESPA Spa, guests will transfer by private helicopter to Ao Por Marina in Phuket.
There, they will board a private yacht to explore Thailand’s nine Similan Islands for three nights. Bespoke expeditions can include swimming, snorkeling, or private island picnics. The resort’s executive chef will also be on board to prepare customized meals at sea.
Called the Similan Island Escape, the service will be available October 1, 2013 through April 30, 2014. Rates for the six-night trip start at $25,000.
