Enshrouded amongst the lush foliage of trees on Thailand's Koh Phangan lies a secret eco-friendly resort that only a handful of travellers are aware of. Somewhere Only We Know is a clandestine hospitality concept akin to the many hidden bars that have popped up all over the word, with secrecy being its main draw point.

Travellers will find that their experience with Somewhere Only We Know kicks off with an adventure even before they step foot into the hotel itself. There are neither signs nor roads leading to this five-star resort, which is only accessible via a five-minute hike through a verdant jungle or a boat ride.

With only three villas available, and each accommodating only two guests, the resort only caters to a maximum number of six guests during 100% occupancy.

The villas are spread out on a 10,000sqm stretch of golden sand, and utilises eco-technologies such as natural air conditioning and zero emission septic systems as part of its eco-friendly initiatives.

Other unique features include a slide from the bedroom directly to the beach, a 16m tall observation net, a fireman’s pole linking the floors, outdoor rainshower, and many Instagrammable features scattered throughout.

Guests are able to explore the three private beaches on the resort at their own leisure, get an exclusive experience curated for them, or choose from the resort’s 80 over experiences and excursions, including tailor-made wellness and spiritual programmes. Amenities include a private restaurant and spa reserved only for resort guests.

Despite its hidden location, the resort is conveniently located minutes away from civilisation where guests can find a range of F&B, nightlife and shopping options. 

Somewhere Only We Know is reopening on 15 July 2022.
