Phuket like you’ve never seen it before: Koh Hidden Trips reinvents your adventure.

Have you ever dreamed of an escape to Phuket that is much more than a trip, a personalized experience tailor-made to reveal the island’s most closely guarded secrets and connect you to its true essence?

Koh Hidden Trips is more than a tour and diving company. It is a promise of authentic travel, an invitation to discover Thailand through the eyes of those who deeply cherish it

Our story

Three enthusiasts, a destiny meeting: the story of Koh Hidden Trips is that of a friendship forged by a common love for travel, gastronomy and culture. Yoann and Manue, after exploring the world and developing a particular affection for Thailand through several stays, finally found their haven of peace in Phuket. It was here that they met Bernard, an expat living on the island for 20 years, whose knowledge of Thailand is as deep as his passion for sharing it.

Bernard, with his years of experience as a guide, was able to reveal to Yoann and Manue the most authentic aspects of Phuket and its surroundings, far from the beaten track. Inspired by their friendship and their shared discoveries, Yoann and Manue decided to permanently settle down in Phuket in 2023, and together, they chose to transform their passion into a vocation.

Koh Hidden Trips was born from this union of minds: a shared desire to reveal Thailand’s hidden treasures to those looking to stray from the traditional tourist trails. The name ‘Koh’, meaning ‘island’ in Thai, reflects our commitment to providing unique and intimate island experiences, escapes that go beyond the ordinary and touch the heart of what Thailand has to offer.

Our philosophy

The Koh Hidden Trips philosophy is based on three essential pillars that define every adventure we design and share with you. Here are the principles that guide our vision and our actions

Authenticity above all
We firmly believe that travel should be an open door to authenticity. For Koh Hidden Trips, this means going beyond conventional tourist attractions to explore the true soul of Phuket and Thailand. Our itineraries are designed to immerse you in the local culture, allowing you to experience and feel Thailand like a local.

Respect for nature and communities
Thailand is our home, and we are committed to preserving it for future generations. This results in a respectful and sustainable approach to each excursion, minimizing our environmental impact and supporting local communities. We carefully choose our partners to ensure they share our values of conservation and social responsibility.

Personalization and Exclusivity
Your journey should be a reflection of your desires and dreams. That’s why we offer complete customization of your adventure, tailoring every aspect according to your preferences. Whether you are looking for a tranquil desert island escape, a dip in the crystal clear waters of the Andaman Sea, or an unforgettable culinary exploration, we ensure your experience is unique and exclusive.

It is with these principles that Koh Hidden Trips was founded, inspired by our last stopover in Phuket, where we, Yoann, Manue and Bernard, united our passions to give birth to a shared vision. Together we decided to launch our excursion and scuba diving company, named after our desire to offer off-the-beaten-path experiences – ‘Koh’, meaning ‘island’ in Thai, is the symbol of our commitment to revealing the hidden gems of this magnificent land.
