Best Places to Stay in Phi Phi

With many white beaches contrasting with emerald waters choosing your accommodation base right is important as some areas are vibrant, some relaxed and others secluded requiring boat transfer to attractions like shops and restaurants. With this in mind we offer a brief description of the best places to stay in Phi Phi Island and list the top resorts you may book with confidence.

Tonsai Bay is where the biggest concentration of cheap hotels, a rocking nightlife scene and many restaurants, curio shops and vendors are located along narrow alleys. It is the busiest area and always buzzing with young travelers and backpackers offering mainly 3 star accommodation and cheap rooms. If you like it busy and cosmopolitan, Tonsai will serve you well.

The best area for budget travelers wanting tranquility is Long Beach featuring the whitest sand on the island and is only 5 minutes by boat from the action in Tonsai. Walking from Tonsai across the width of the island which takes 5 minutes is chilled-out Loh Dalam Bay flanked by limestone cliffs on both sides. It is conveniently near entertainment, yet shielded from noise.

But if you really want to experience the island's full idyllic glory in an unsurpassed location and enjoy exclusivity the best beach to stay is Laem Tong on the north-east shore where places like Zeavola and just south of that Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort offers barefoot luxury like nowhere else. It is 20 minutes by boat from Tonsai and utterly romantic with a high degree of privacy.
