Dubbed ‘the gem of the eastern sea’, Koh Laoya consists of three small islands, namely Laoya Nai (Inner Laoya), Laoya Klang (Middle Laoya), Laoya Nok (Outer Laoya), the latter is linked to the former two by a wooden bridge. It lies about three kilometres west of the southeastern end of Koh Chang. Endowed with intact natural wonders like sandy white beaches, crystal-clear water and colourful corals, Koh Laoya is well-suited for those who enjoy peace and privacy in a perfectly pristine atmosphere.
Being a private island, Koh Laoya has only one resort with limited number of guests allowed per ‘round’. Laoya Resort offers only full-board packages (one-night and two-night) which include everything from boat transfer, accommodation to meals and a snorkeling trip. A wide range of activities like football, volleyball and karaoke can also be enjoyed. The island tends to fill up quickly especially during the weekends and long holidays, so it’s best to book the package in advance. The boat to Koh Laoya leaves Kromluang Chumporn Pier in Laem Ngob (mainland) at 9:00 and leaves Koh Laoya at 8:30. The journey takes approximately two hours each way.
