Located between a quiet east-coast beach and a mangrove-lined canal with good kayaking opportunities at high tide, The Blue Sky has exclusively air-con rooms that set the bar for luxury on Ko Phayam.

The original concrete villas at this Maldives-inspired resort are built on stilts above a patch of mangroves; you can park a kayak out front and go exploring at high tide. These feature vaulted ceiling, lots of space and long daybeds set beside floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the mangroves. High-end beds and bathrooms with basin sinks and rain showerheads join extras like TV, fridge and safe. Wood footbridges with no handrails access these rooms, which are not really suitable for families with small children.

Newer dark-wood villas are similarly comfy, boasting spacious rooftop lofts with daybeds shaded by thatch roofs. These are cheaper and arguably better than the mangrove rooms since you get sea views from the lofts. They’re situated next to the road and closer to the restaurant and medium-size swimming pool, so you don’t get as much privacy.

Set just south of a rocky outcrop and across a narrow concrete bridge, the location is great for kayaking and the beach here isn’t bad. While the setting is quiet, the village is an easy walk north from here.

Blue Sky is run by a group of mainlanders who own resorts under the same brand just north of Ranong town, on Ko Kho Khao and in Hua Hin. Phayam’s Blue Sky is popular with Thai tourists and some might find the atmosphere—with uniformed security guards and a neatly presented beachfront restaurant—too “clean cut” for this island. But for those who like to be pampered, it’s the swankiest spot on Phayam.
