The largest of the five limestone islands west of Koh Lanta in Mu Koh Lanta National Marine Park, Koh Ha is truly a tropical paradise. No wonder that fishermen and sea gypsies felt so at home there in the past. The full lushness of the natural beauty is picturesque and invites you to dream. Those who prefer to jump into the water should not forget their diving goggles, because the real life of this island takes place under water.
The Koh Ha Islands have some amazing underwater caves. You can safely enter the caves through their large entrances. The best time to dive into the caves is at sunrise, when sunlight bathes the water a gorgeous emerald hue. The natural light that shines through the underwater caves creates a magical experience that is difficult to put into words. Two of the three caves are connected by a large round swim-through channel. The third cavern is the largest and is often referred to as the Cathedral.
While the islands near the coast of popular tourist destinations are easy to reach for day visitors and are therefore often overcrowded, the real fun of private yachting begins with the more distant islands. These include the islands of Koh Lanta Marine National Park, most of which can be enjoyed as exclusively and privately as your own yacht.
Instead of infrastructure and tourist accommodation, they offer incomparable beauty and breathtaking landscapes in their untouched naturalness. And of course stunning snorkeling and diving spots. And instead of selfie-shooting sunscreen bodies, you'll find real, heartfelt sea gypsies here, with their remarkable cultural appeal, unique customs and festivals long buried elsewhere.
Value Added Tax (VAT) is a tax that is levied on consumer goods and services in almost every country in the world and, similar to the US sales tax, increases the final price for consumers accordingly. The current VAT rate in Thailand is 7%.
This tax revenue is used to finance public facilities such as piers and jetties, staff and Marinne rescue services.
ATTENTION: Nobody likes to pay taxes, which is why some providers of yachts waive VAT for their customers in order to be able to act more cheaply than the legal competition. However, companies that offer services without VAT are acting illegally and thereby also putting their customers in an illegal position that can be prosecuted by the government. A business transaction without VAT is illegal by definition, which is why no insurance cover or legal claim to correct service provision can be granted in this case.
Since our yacht charters also have many corporate customers who are exempt from VAT, we show our prices net and add the VAT in the online cost estimate in order to offer all customers the highest possible cost transparency.
