Thailand’s dreamy Island Escape resort opens on Coconut Island

Thailand’s secluded tropical island of Koh Maphrao – located just off the shore from tourist hotspot Phuket – has opened a five-star luxury resort by the name of Island Escape.

Surrounded by a dreamy landscape of breathtaking ocean views, cascading waterfalls, three private beaches and verdant gardens; Island Escape by Burasari, is truly about enjoying an escape from everyday routines.

What makes it so appealing is that Koh Maphrao  (also known as Coconut Island) exists as a relatively untouched, genuine charm. In fact, Island Escape is one of only two resorts on the entire island. And while it’s only a five-minute boat ride from Phuket, it has a completely unique feel as there are only approximately 1000 residents living on the island.

“Island Escape by Burasari is designed for spontaneous romance and happiness,” says Simon Douthett, general manager. The intention was to combine luxury with a ‘feel at home’ concept.

Peacefully secluded and surrounded by nature, Island Escape is ideal for both families and couples and anyone looking to explore off-the-beaten-track destinations. Couples can indulge in the adults-only cascading lagoon, while children and extended family can enjoy the resorts abundant repertoire of pools and beaches, lush gardens, spa and wellness programs and adventure excursions. 

 It features 15 private-pool villas opulently designed and sustainably made using natural materials and authentic elements. It even has its own market garden system to provide a sustainable and organic dining experience. Thai, international cuisines and ocean-fresh seafood will also be available.

Combining tranquillity with luxurious accommodation, Island Escape by Burasari provides the ultimate island escape.

Those who book before 31 March 2020 in a private pool villa for a minimum of 2 nights will receive a bottle of prosecco and an in-villa dinner during your stay.
