Why you'll love this trip
  • Leave behind the vibrant, modern pizzazz of Phuket and set sail on the beautifully calm waters of the Andaman Sea – by yacht no less!
  • Slip into the beach-loving life with long walks on the finest white sands and salty swims in the inviting azure waters of Thailand’s best beaches.
  • There are few things more relaxing than sleeping out beneath the stars, rocked by the gentle pitch of a yacht. Choose to spend a night on the deck and see for yourself.
  • Feast on delicious food with no effort at all – you’ll have the added benefit of an onboard chef, whipping up Thai favourites daily.
  • Relax with the knowledge that the biggest decision of the day is whether to paddleboard, snorkel, swim with the tropical fish or kayak across shimmering seas.

Is this trip right for you?
  • As most of this trip takes place on a sailing boat, you’ll need to feel comfortable with moving about the vessel, including stairs. Your friendly crew will be able to help with the effects of sea sickness if needed.  
  • Time on the water also means time in the sun. Remember to pack sun protection, such as sunscreen and a hat, and drink plenty of water to keep hydrated. See ‘Essential Trip Information’ below for a full packing list.  


A twin-hulled catamaran, the ‘beautiful orchid’ carries up to 14 passengers in three twin/double cabins and two quad cabins with en-suite facilities.

I just finished a week trip in beautiful Cataleya. What can I say, everything was just perfect. Kop Kung Ka, guys. This was far beyond any expectations. You can tell from the minute one how passionate the crew is about their jobs and that’s what we got in return, an amazing week with like minded people sailing in amazing Thailand in our happy bubble called Cataleya. Rob, Doh, Chai and Ice are the best crew ever, they paid attention to every detail to make us happy everyday and make sure we were safe and enjoyed our trip. And that’s exactly what happened. The boat is great and they are really knowledgeable about sailing and the places we visited. The scenery was just stunning. Ice, the chef, cooked for us the best Thai food I’ve ever had so far and even made gluten free bread and pancakes for me (which meant a lot to me). Thanks so much guys for sharing this beautiful place with us. Best reward of such hard work is a great holidays week like this. Thank you all 💖

It was an amazing week on Cataleya - Rob was a great host, always making sure everybody was comfortable and safe. The crew went above and beyond to give us the best time: preparing super-delicious Thai food, having kayaks and paddle boards available (and help us get on 😉), dinghy shuttles and of course sailing and handling Cataleya, so all we had to do was relax, enjoy the view, snorkel, paddle, eat, swim, sleep - and repeat 😀 I highly recommend the trip also for (female) solo travelers since you will meet like-minded people and have a lot of fun together! Do not miss the early morning sunrise swims 😉
