off the coast of Phuket Island, Thailand
Thailand’s only privately owned island.
Not much more than a tiny dot in the expansive Andaman Sea, Koh Rang Noi is accessible only by water.

Astute travelers seeking attentive hospitality and plush jungle surroundings can enjoy a secluded 10-acre retreat with three villas.
Offering a nearly endless variety of private islands. Perhaps a few too many.
