When you think of deserted, white sand islands in Thailand, the name Koh Munnork doesn’t spring to mind, but it should. Koh Munnork is the only private island beach resort in Thailand, and just three hours from Bangkok by car. Located just off the coast of Rayong near Koh Samet in the Gulf of Thailand, it’s the only private island resort in the gulf. With a stunning white sand beach, the property by Epikurean Lifestyle encompasses 18 acres, which covers a fifth of the island, with the remaining untouched. The island can be easily reached using the resort’s private boat which takes around 45 minutes from the resort pier. With just 22 Bungalows Koh Munnork is one of Thailand’s more unique destinations with pristine beaches, lush jungle and the rest of the island all to yourself – all within a few hours drive from Bangkok.
