Pariya Haad Yuan is the first boutique resort located on Haad Yuan/Yuan Beach, snowy-white stretch of sand accessed via a 20-minute speedboat ride from Koh Samui. Framed by the lush jungle-clad mountains to the rear of the resort and with a clear, cobalt-blue sea on its doorstep, Pariya Haad Yuan is the place to experience tropical island life in perfect comfort. It is just 10 minutes by boat from the resort to Haad Rin/Rin Beach, the center of the island’s nightlife and the world famous location of Full Moon Party.
In Haad Yuan, there is no main electricity. The electricity used in the resort is from generators. As an integral part of our group policy is to save energy and environment to assist Koh Phangan maintain its pristine beauty, Pariya Haad Yuan will turn off an electricity from 13.00-16.00 hrs.
Phangan island is one of the idyllic islands which lies to the north of Koh Samui in the gulf of Thailand. The distance from Koh Samui’s nearest part is 12 kilometers. Koh Phangan is the largest island in the small archipelago composed of 6 islands -- Phangan, Tao, Tae Nok, Tae Nai, Ma and Nang Yuan. However, Koh Phangan has not reached the developmental stage of Koh Samui yet. It is more rustic and laid back. This makes Koh Phangan appeal to many tourists.
Koh Phangan is about two-thirds the size of Koh Samui with a mix of sandy coves and rugged forested interior. Two-thirds of Koh Phangan is taken up by a long mountain ridge which is covered with a dense tropical rain forest and still relatively unexplored. On one side of Koh Phangan, the mountains drop steeply into the sea while on the other side has picturesque bays with snowy white sandy beach. Koh Phangan is also very famous for its Full Moon Party, for which people and DJs come from over the world every month. Several tables are set upon Haad Rin and thousand of lamps are lit. You will find all kinds of music here.
