Our Pleasure Island Getaway program is the perfect mix of tropical island holiday and breezy resort nightlife. Home base is Patong Beach, Phuket's most popular seaside community. There is plenty to do and enjoy here. Your personal guide will introduce you to the large gay scene. Later, cruise the Andaman Sea to visit legendary tropical islands. You do not have to be gay to enjoy this package. Our straight guests choose us because they know they will get something better from a gay company, and we know how to sanook!
Day One: Welcome to the Rainbow Zone
We will be waiting for you when you arrive in Phuket to whisk you off to your hotel. The earlier you arrive, the more time you will have to swim, sunbathe, watch the volleyball game on the pink section of the beach, shop, or relax. For dinner, try one of the popular gay restaurants in Patong or any of the fantastic fresh seafood restaurants fronting the beach. At around eight our local guide will join you for a private nightlife tour in the heart of Patong Beach's rainbow zone.
Day Two: Your Day Off
Free morning. You came here for a day off and this is it! Sleep in, hang around the pool, do some shopping or maybe even take a cooking class. The tropical night is yours to revisit your favorite night spots or have a long, romantic walk on the starlit sand. After dinner it's Showtime! We whisk you off to Simon Cabaret for the most glamorous show in Phuket.
Day Three: Explore Koh Phi Phi & Koh Khai
Early departure for a speedboat cruise to the Phi Phi Islands and beyond. Arrive at Phi Phi Lay to explore the fantastic landscape of Maya Bay (where the movie “The Beach” was partially filmed). There is time to swim or snorkel with colorful tropical fish, and maybe look for Nemo. Enjoy sightseeing at Loh Samah Bay, Pileh Cove and view the famous Viking Cave. Hop on to Phi Phi Don to enjoy snorkeling by the Monkey Beach. After lunch at one of the island resort's restaurant proceed to Hin Klang one of the great coral reefs of Phi Phi Islands. Then proceed to the idyllic Khai Island, a tropical jewel in the Andaman Sea. Stretch out under an umbrella in the eggshell-white sand, swim in the sapphire ocean or snorkel among the coral beds. Back to Patong Beach in time for cocktail hour.
Day Four: Kiss the Sun
