Koh Phi Phi, Thailand (27 September 2018): Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort has launched a new family-focused experience aimed at teaching its young guests about Koh Phi Phi’s rich marine environment and the importance of conservation.

The new “Kids Care” initiative will allow children staying at the resort with their parents to learn all about the natural world in Hat Noppharat Thara-Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park, which surrounds Koh Phi Phi and its neighbouring islands. Up to two children under 11 years old can stay for free under this package. 

This protected area is home to an amazing diversity of marine life, including colourful corals, tropical fish and exotic species including sharks, sea turtles, rays, octopuses, seahorses and many more. To showcase these aquatic ecosystems, Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort recently launched its Marine Discovery Centre, which houses a series of informative interactive displays. It also operates a special programme to re-introduce clownfish and bamboo sharks back into the region’s waters.

Under the new Kids Care programme, children will be able to take part in complimentary educational workshops with the Marine Discovery Centre’s resident marine biologists.

“Koh Phi Phi is a pristine tropical paradise that contains a wealth of natural wonders, both above and beneath the waves. Unfortunately, the marine environment and coral reefs that so many creatures depend upon are under threat. Our Kids Care programme is designed to be both educational and entertaining, allowing young guests to have fun while learning about the crucial issue of marine preservation,” said Khun Chao Treenawong, the resort’s General Manager.

Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort has created a special family package that includes the Kids Care activities for children. Valid for two adults and two children (up to 11 years old), the package includes three nights’ accommodation, welcome drinks and fruit, daily breakfast, free Wi-Fi, and roundtrip boat transfers between the resort and Phuket. Kids will also receive one daily ice-cream from the resort’s Chaba Gift Shop!

Children will be kept engaged and entertained throughout their stay with workshops at the Marine Discovery Centre and free daily activities such as coconut painting, pool sessions, kayaking and more (subject to activity schedule).

This fun-filled family package is available from now until 19 December 2018, with prices starting from just THB 33,900 net for three nights. Terms and conditions apply. For more information, please CLICK HERE.

Nestled among 70 acres of swaying coconut palms and fragrant gardens, Phi Phi Island Village Resort has a strong environmental focus, from its architecture to guest activities. The resort was constructed using sustainable materials, including traditional “bai jak” roofs, and the recent launch of the Marine Discovery Centre has allowed it to commence educational programmes teaching guests and local schoolchildren about the importance of marine conservation.
