Koh Russei (Bamboo Island)

Koh Russei is really a jewel of a beach with fine pink or ochre sand and a deep and mysterious forest. For those loving the sun falling into the sea whilst surrounded by jungle sounds, Koh Russei is the place. An island of gentleness. An island of passion. Its virgin, private and intimate characteristics make it a site for high-end development, and easily compares with the world's most exclusive sites.

The best time to visit the island is during the monsoon season. Between November and February, northerly winds pick up and can make the group more difficult to navigate.

There are currently five resorts comprised of basic wooden bungalows on Koh Russei. Four are situated on the beach where the boats come in and only one makes use of the terrific and pristine sand of the other, more private beach. The ten-minute walk between beaches is a pleasant one; they're connected by a path that traverses the island through a jungle forest filled with deafening cicadas

There are little things to do on Koh Russei as it is a paradise for relaxing journey to the nature. You can swim all day, read in a hammock in the morning, go on a fishing boat or play volleyball with the fishermen a number of shirtless sarong - wrapped anglers play during the day. There are bonfires and barbecues by night. The bar and restaurant has a full menu, offering the usual beach fare such as omelettes, French fries, curries and soups.

Toilets and cold water showers are shared. The generator runs when it's dark and goes off about 11pm.


Remember to take the following: insect repellent, mosquito coils, soap, sun block, toilet paper, any snacks you fancy, extra liquor if you have a big group, a hammock, and a bed sheet. A first aid kit might be a good idea as well.
