Island Yoga is located on a beautiful beachfront with breathtaking views of sunrise over Phang Nga bay. Due to the extreme tides, the beachfront is ideal for long strolls, sunbathing, and mediation. Swimming and snorkelling can be sought out on various other beaches on the island or on a short boat trip.
With plenty of free time during the day, you can explore remote beaches and lively markets, rice paddies and rubber plantations. This is also the time to treat yourself to a massage or take a Thai cookery course. Recreation options include swimming and snorkeling, hiking and biking, rock climbing and kayaking.
You can rent bicycles, kayaks and motor scooters at the lodge to explore the island. If you need a taxi, just speak to Ning and she’ll organize one for you!
To get to your wild and humble escape, known as Ulmar’s Nature Lodge (Island Yoga), it is easiest from Phuket. From Old Phuket town, local buses leave from the fresh market to Bang Rong Pier everyday. You can also take a tuk-tuk to the pier. Then catch the ferry to Koh Yao Noi (Manoh Pier) and enjoy a beautiful journey surrounded by turquoise blue waters. This unforgettable way of transportation will take approximately 30 minutes by speedboat or 1 hour by long tail. From there you can take a local taxi to Ulmar’s Nature Lodge. Taking an island stroll from the pier is also an option, as the Lodge is only a 10-minute walk. There will always be taxi’s waiting for you at the pier, no need to pre-arrange this.
