About Pawapi

From the moment you step off the longtail boat, dip your toes in the waters of the Andaman Sea and approach Pawapi from its white-sand beach, you know that this will be a getaway like no other. Pawapi is your chance to escape: unwind, and detach from everyday life.


Pawapi was designed as an intimate resort with only 23 rooms. Keeping it small, means we can focus on personalized service and attention to detail. Located on the tiny island of Koh Mook in Southern Thailand, your stay at Pawapi will be an experience you’ll never forget – relaxed, peaceful, far from the madding crowd.


Pawapi is proud to be a part of the Koh Mook society, the home of fishing communities for over 100 years, long before tourists arrived. It is the local people and their boating traditions that give the island its genuine and authentic character.


Heading out of Pawapi, a handful of roads (more like paved tracks) lead to Koh Mook’s other white-sand beaches shaded by picture-perfect coconut trees. As you venture inland through rubber groves and patches of jungle, flowers, birds, and butterflies abound, small huts perch on stilts above the tide. Wander around the village and see women sun-drying fish, preparing chilies, hand-washing clothes and collecting coconuts while the men are out fishing, buildinglong-tail boats, or harvesting sap from local rubber trees.
