Phang Nga Bay

Phang Nga Bay is famed for its natural beauty, especially its characteristic karst topography - small island mountains in the sea. The monolithic limestone islands are truly a magnificent view right on the doorstep of Six Senses Yao Noi

This formation of limes stones, some looking like they have just been dropped out of the sky, impress with their sheer size, incredible colours and impressive caves. Phang Nga Bay is shallow and filled with tidal sediments. The bay itself is composed of large and small tidal channels. Mangrove forests grow around the whole area of Phang Nga Bay, differing in species depending on elevation and relative tidal range. 

Phang Nga Bay covers an area of 400 square kilometres and was in 1974 designated as a forest park, Sri Phang Nga Forest Park. The Royal Forest Department then began to survey the area and realized its heritage. In 1981 it received national park status, Ao Phang Nga National Park. Over 80 % of the park is covered by the Andaman Sea, with 42 large and small islands.

My favourite thing is to go where I've never been.
Diane Arbus

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
