We have a fast boat leaving the town every Wednesday and Saturday at 14:00. It takes about 1.5 hrs by speed boat from Kawthaung Steg to the resort. Coming from Myanmar, you can take a direct flight to Kawthaung Airport, which is linked to several internal airfields and serves several regional carriers.

There is a choice of the most dependable and comfortable carrier, as the shuttles depart from Kawthaung Jetty (Myoma Jetty) at 2 pm. Included in your parcel is a pick up from/to Kawthaung International Kawthaung International Park. A further possibility is the flight to Ranong International Aerodrome. From Bangkok International Airfield there are Nok Air services every day.

It is well serviced by locals, but we can also arrange to meet you at Ranong International Airport at an additional surcharge. They will be collected by one of our staff at Ranong Jetty (Saphan Pla Jetty).
