Most guests are happy to stay at the hotel and enjoy the calm and sunshine. For your full comfort we provide complimentary beach towels, sun loungers and umbrellas for protection against the sun. The resort also has a small number of sea canoes that can be hired out at a small charge. Snorkelling is popular as the waters are shallow at high tide.
Thai Cooking Lessons
Thai food is famous for being tasty and delicious, so it’s no surprise that so many people are interested to learn how to make some simple Thai dishes to take home and impress their family and friends with. We can arrange for a top Thai chef to teach you a few traditional and delectable dishes, and you don’t even have to leave the resort. Our classes are intimate and hands-on, the chef will explain each ingredient, give a demonstration and help you prepare your own dish and then you may sit down and taste your creations.
Massage & Spa
A holiday at The Tri Trang Beach Resort is all about being able to switch off from the stresses of everyday life, so why not book a traditional Thai massage on the beach? Or enjoy a spa and scrub and leave feeling refreshed, relaxed and revitalized.
Choose from a traditional Thai body or foot massage or enter our spa for 60 minutes or more of pampering and beauty treatments.
Thailand is the perfect place to learn to scuba dive and thousands arrive in the country every week to learn the basics and even get qualified.

Ask at the tour desk for more information on tours and activities. They are pleased to help and give you more information depending on what you would like to do.
Phuket is an interesting place to explore and Phuket Town itself can be a pleasant surprise. The town is small enough to walk around and the mix of Sino-Portuguese and Chinese architecture will delight you. Explore an array of coffee shops, art galleries, Chinese shrines, Thai local eating-places and funky shops. Phuket Town offers much more than you would imagine with some first-rate restaurants, cocktail bars and local places of interest.
If you only visit one temple on your visit to Phuket then make sure it is Wat Chalong, as it’s one of the most beautiful and most important Buddhist temples of the 29 on the island. Wat Chalong has been welcoming visitors for more than a century and is the place locals come to give thanks and pray. It covers a large area and will give you a taste of the spiritual side of Phuket.
Poh Than Jao Wat houses the main Buddhist statues in Wat Chalong, look out for the statue of Ta Khee-lek, grandpa Khee-lek, a legendary local who apparently won the lottery after a session with the Poh Than Jao Wat statue.
Phang Nga Bay
Take a boat trip to the tranquil Phang Nga Bay for spectacular scenery and to get away from the bustle of island life. You can opt to go by speedboat or aboard a traditional Chinese Junk for a real adventure. The skilled crew will look after the sailing whilst you get the opportunity to recline on deck and enjoy the fresh sea air. Tours may involve a visit to a Sea Gypsy village hovering over the water on stilts, a visit to the huge limestone formation emerging from the ocean known as James Bond Island, sea canoeing and a sunset dinner aboard the ship.
Learn about the mahouts who take care of the elephants, and have the chance to actually ride on the back of one of these beautiful animals whilst enjoying stunning views of the mountains and highlands.
