Distance between Holiday Inn Phi Phi Island & Phi Phi Island Village Beach ResortThe geography and transport are the key to this question. The Loh Bagao and Laem Tong beaches are unconnected by roads so there are no cars (although there is a flat jeep track between the 2 beaches which is about a 35 minute walk)). Its all about the speedboats or longtail boats times between Holiday Inn Phi Phi Island Laem Tong Beach and Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort. These resorts are about 3 km apart.
Both these Koh Phi Phi resorts are good as they say in their websites and on reviewing websites like TripAdvisor and booking.com. In fact they are in the top 4 resorts on an island with over 100 different accommodations, resorts down to dormatory.
Distance from the main village to Loh Bagao and Laem Tong BeachesIt takes about 20 minutes from the main village and pier for a longtail boat to PP Island Village and about 25 minutes to PP Holiday Inn at Laem Tong beach. Speedboat difference is about 2-3 minutes so there isn't really a massive difference between the 2 beaches.
