About Us

The beginning of The Blue Sky @ Koh Payam
  • The resort was inspired by the owners desire to escape the hustle and bustle and chaos of the capital Bangkok and its traffic congestion every day.
  • After arriving at Koh Payam, it was easy to fall in love with the beautiful and pure nature, just like Koh Samui 40 years ago.
  • The Blue Sky @ Koh Payam first opened in 1999 with just 5 villas and a restaurant.
The beginning of The Maldives of Thailand
  • The piece of land purchased by the owner has a lovely sandy beach. On the day the architect first visited the land it was flooded. The owner then realised the local villagers sold the flooded land, and the villagers did not have the money to replace the damaged dam which caused the floods.
  • This crisis was turned into an opportunity and overwater villa concept was introduced.
  • The owner had visited The Maldives 10 years before and was inspired to create the circular villas with grass roof and wooden walkways.
  • Tourists began calling the resort The Maldives of Thailand and the name has stuck ever since.
