Koh Yao Noi Is Now Home to a Spectacular Artist Retreat

[SPONSORED CONTENT] Camp Cape Kudu, at the Cape Kudu Hotel, is a stunning escape from everyday life.

Published on Sep 2, 2019

It’s no coincidence that many of the greatest artists throughout history have sought inspiration in creative sanctuaries and distant lands. Henry David Thorough had his Walden; Pablo Picasso’s art flourished under the Meditteranean sun of the Côte d'Azur; F. Scott Fitzgerald and a whole lost generation found their oeuvre in the bohemian streets of Paris. Now, some of today’s most influential visionaries are finding their muse at Camp Cape Kudu, an artist retreat unlike any other.

This extraordinary experience takes place at the five-star Cape Kudu Hotel, a stunning oasis located on the unspoiled southern Thai island of Koh Yao Noi. While more popular islands like Koh Samui and Phuket have suffered some of the ill effects of overtourism, this idyllic place has remained blissfully under the radar. As a result, coconut palm trees still cover much of the terrain and the sugar-sand beaches are just as lovely as they have been for generations. It’s the perfect place for creatives of all sorts to contemplate, discover, and return to society with a renewed sense of passion. 

For the pilot edition of Camp Cape Kudu, a diverse array of movers and shakers including Chudaree “Tam” Debhakam, a former winner of Thailand’s edition of Top Chef, and Mriz Sidah, a prominent artist living in Singapore, sailed ashore for four days and three nights of sublime pampering. During their stay, guests basked in the warmth of the sun, which glittered on the turquoise waters of Phang Nga Bay and the resort’s superb infinity pool. They also took time to rejuvenate at Cape Spa, a luxurious haven of holistic healing, and indulge in sumptuous cuisine at Cape Kudu's Hornbill Restaurant.

Ultimately, Cape Kudu Hotel is a place where every guest can design their dream itinerary. This is a place to restore the soul and to connect with your artistic side.
