As the southernmost resort on Ko Ngai, Thanya occupies a coveted expanse of sand at a quiet corner of the beach that's still within an easy walk of other resorts.

Apart from a trickle of hikers crossing the headland trail to Paradise Beach, you won't see anyone here except for the professional staff and other guests. Inspired by a mix of Thai, Balinese and Japanese influences, the detached teakwood villas are done up with heavenly beds draped in mosquito nets, stained glass features, traditional Thai art, elegant hot-water bathrooms, Japanese-style sliding doors with floor-to-ceiling glass, and wide outdoor terraces with tables. The seaview rooms also bag you private garden areas with ceramic vases out the back. Perfect for couples, all villas come with air-con, minibars and coffee/tea facilities, but no TVs. Room rates depend mainly on proximity to the beach, and a string of new villas had been added over the hillside when we last visited. Stone walkways meander past white frangipani trees and birdbaths on the way to a small swimming pool and restaurant. Rates jump by 500 baht from December 20 to January 10.
