The Honeymoon Tour: Eight days of Island Hopping in the Gulf of Thailand, catered to your fantasy.
Come and enjoy this romantic sailing adventure with your sweetheart on our 52ft yacht that sails by the name of Independence. She is skippered by the Italian Captain Luca who has over 25 years of experience on the sea. Alongside Luca is the lovely hostess, Nok, who has been hosting in the yachting industry for 10 years. Independence is Little Italy in the Thai gulf; you can expect excellency in service, quality and luxury, with an exciting twist of adventure.
Hiring a private sailing yacht charter is the most romantic way to travel. In the age of jet planes and bullet trains, sailing is a chance to slow down. As sailors, we travel for the sake of the journey; the ocean, the stars, the sun and the time we spend with our loved ones. Some couples might choose a hotel with a breakfast buffet for their honey moon; you may choose to celebrate yours on the open sea onboard a private yacht.
Onboard the Independence your decadent honeymoon dream will become reality. You’ll have your own private restaurant on the sea, sleep in the spacious stateroom, and sip champagne for breakfast. You’ll have entire islands to yourselves and on our luxury yachts, you’ll get there in style.
As this is your dream honeymoon, you can choose to bring along any resource you like. Take a massage therapist, bring a private photographer, or a diving teacher if you want to get active. In the paradise of the Koh Samui archipelagos, savour your ultimate romantic honeymoon and all the indulgences you desire. Our crew will arrange everything, and you and your love can relax and enjoy the ride.
Day 1: Pick up in Koh Samui at 10.00 and set sail at 11.00 to Koh Pha Ngan.
Elephant Wedding Ceremony: this will give you an opportunity to have a 30 minute photo shoot with the elephants on the beach. We will provide you with a wedding dress.
Your luxury honeymoon begins here with our welcome drink and canapé buffet. We set sail for Koh Phangan after you check in and we go over our safety briefing.
Koh Phangan is an island located seven nautical miles north of Koh Samui. This island is known for its magical atmosphere and incredible landscape and views. We will be mooring on the sea at Gypsies’ beach for lunch and later carry on for Haad Than Sadet beach for the fresh waterfall excursion. Before sunset we will be mooring again, this time in one of the more tranquil bays called Ao Thong Nai Pan.

This bay is the nicest on the East Coast, and lesser known, providing an intimate and romantic experience as the sun sinks beneath the water. After sunset there is a very charming beach bar called Flip Flop Pharmacy where you can enjoy your first mouthwatering appetizer before your dinner reservation at the famous Thai BBQ restaurant. After dinner Sabay Bar waits for you; here you will experience an incredible fire show on the beach.

So you do not have to worry, the crew has everything under control and safety is the primary concern. There might even be a Whale Shark waiting for a meet and greet if we are lucky enough! April and May are the best times to spot these wonderful gentle giants. We sail to the May Beach Club for drinks and DJ music on the beach before dinner. For dinner we have a booking for you at the best Italian Restaurant in Samui, Rossini.

This is Paradise like you can only imagine in your wildest dreams. Breakfast will be served when you join us on deck. Today we have a long sailing day so why not try to steer and navigate the boat yourself? Feel the breeze in your hair and the rush of adrenaline you get when steering a yacht on the open seas. This part of our journey will be the ultimate relaxation. Deserted islands are waiting to be discovered; apart form a tiny fishing community we will hardly see any people as we have designed our tour in a way that we avoid the crowds. First stop at Ko Nai Phut for cave discovery in a small dinghy and for lunch stop on a secluded island for a beach picnic. In the late afternoon we will go on the magnificent Emerald Green Sea lake, a stunning contrast with the Archipelago. Dinner tonight will be at a Thai restaurant at the base of a gorgeous view point.
