Eye Lash Extentions

Long, luscious, natural - looking Eyelash Extentions that last up to two months.

While there are products on the market offering a temporary effect such as elongating mascara and false eyelashes, the individual eyelash extension concept stays unique in its promise to hold up to 2 months when properly applied.

Eyelash extensions are an exciting new product and technique for thicker, longer and naturally abundant looking eyelashes. Eyelashes are made thicker and longer through professional application of an individual eyelash directly attached to the natural eyelash with a specially formulated bonding agent.

The eyelashes come in different lengths and curls to accentuate the natural beauty and colour of one's eye and lashes. The delicate thickness of our product does not weigh down the natural eyelash, this prevents it from falling off before its time.

Unlike mascara Luscious Lashes eyelash extensions don't clump, run in water, smear or cause allergies. You can swim, shower, spa, etc all without worrying about losing your fabulous look.

The procedure takes between 1 1/2 to 2 hours to apply a full set.

FIlls are necessary, just like acrylic nails, on a two or three week basis depending on your eyelash life cycle.

Costs for fills are as follows:

30 min: R125

45 min: R175

60 min: R250

Similian Islands

Koh Similan Island is by far the most beautiful group of dive sites in Thailand and one of the best areas for diving in the entire world. Many people comment that the most fantastic thing about the Similan Islands is that we have two radically different types of environments all rolled together into one destination. Nowhere else in the world will a diver find such diverse topography in such a small area.

The Similan Islands, located about one hundred kilometers northwest of Phuket, are composed of nine granite islands covered in tropical jungle, washed by a clear blue tropical ocean and blessed with some of the world's finest beaches. Similan comes from Malay fisherman who named it "The Nine Islands". There is limited accommodation available on the island.

The East Coast with its powdery beaches features hard coral gardens which slope dramatically from the surface down to approximately 30-40 meters, where sand takes over as the water depth increases. On this side, the most popular activity is drift diving along healthy coral gardens while watching the reef inhabitants go about their business. On several sites, large coral bommies rise from the bottom and are covered with soft corals, sea fans, and an enormous amount of critters and unusual fish. Here the diving is easy and navigation simple, allowing each buddy pair to explore at his or her own pace.

The West Coast, just a short boat ride away, can offer faster paced, more exhilarating diving as currents swirl around the huge granite boulders-some larger than the largest of houses. These smooth, rounded boulders make dramatic formations, holes, and overhangs ("swim-throughs") underwater where divers can enjoy swimming with the current through the openings. The drama of just looking up through the clear water at these huge rocks is satisfaction enough for some divers, as there are very few places like this on earth. Growing on these boulders are some of the most colorful soft corals imaginable, in many places so thick that the rock is no longer visible. In the larger passages or channels between the boulders, the fans grow to a size sometimes three meters across, and are often so tightly bunched together that it makes it impossible to swim through the passages. Most of the dive sites on the West Coast are best seen with a guide, since navigation can be tricky.

If you enjoy watching and photographing small fish, the Similans are hard to beat for the sheer numbers and varieties of tropicals especially lionfish and anemone fish. We often get an occasional whale shark, while large cow tail rays are fairly common. And, of course the most famous aquatic resident of Thailand the leopard shark makes his appearance on a regular basis. We'll also see white tip and black tip sharks once in awhile, and a few times over the years we've seen schools of pseudo orcas or false killer whales.

High season in the Similan Island is from October until May, but diving is possible all year-round. The water tends to be clearest in the summer and in the fall, but then again, the visibility is almost always good in the Similans, averaging approximately 18-25 meters and at times exceeding 40 meters!

Surin Islands

Koh Surin National Park is a paradise of fine white sandy beaches, thick jungle, crystal-clear waters, and the most extensive coral reef in Thailand. It is also home of the Moken Sea Gypsies. The park is the ideal place to go for people wanting to connect with nature in its most beautiful and pristine form, escaping traditional touristy beaches with their bars, noise, and crowds.  

The advantage of Koh Surin is that you don’t need to SCUBA dive to discover some of Thailand’s most extensive marine diversity. The shallow reefs are perfect for snorkeling and are bursting with vibrant fish and colorful corals, even for those who aren’t confident in the water. If you’re lucky, you may even see turtles and whales in the area.

Mu Koh Surin National Park is 60 kilometers from the coast of Phang Nga province bordering the burmese border and is made up of 5 islands: Ko Surin Nuea, Ko Surin Tai, Ko Ri, Ko Khai, and Ko Klang, each with its own intoxicating quality.

Don't hesitate to contact us should you wish to book your trip to the Surin Islands.

Phi Phi Islands

Phi Phi Island is located between the large Island of Phuket and the Andaman Sea, and is a part of Krabi Province. There are two main islands, Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Ley and 4 smaller islands which overflow with fine sandy white beaches that give way to soaring limestone cliffs to form spectacular scenery. Add crystal clear water, a refreshing lack of roads, plus a laid-back lifestyle, it’s easy to see why Phi Phi is one of southern Thailand’s most popular destinations.  

Phi Phi Don has two separate mountain ranges which are connected by a narrow strip of land in the middle.  It's also the main island for accommodation ranging from simple beach side bungalows to luxury up-market resorts.  The twin bays of Tonsai Bay in the south and Lo Dalam Bay in the north offer fantastic diving and snorkeling.  Not far from Lo Dalam Bay is Monkey Beach, a small sandy beach only accessible by boat.

While Tonsai Bay and Loh Dalum Bay might be the most popular beaches they are by no means the best beaches.  It's definitely worth exploring the other beaches such as Loh Lana Bay on the west coast and Laem Tong at the northern most point of the island as well as all the beaches along the east coast.  One of the best ways to see the whole of the island, is to take a walk to the Pee Pee Viewpoint, from here the views overlooking the twin bays of Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Ley are simply unforgetable.

Bamboo Island, just north east of Phi Phi Don is a small idyllic island with more glorious beaches with more reefs for snorkeling.

Phi Phi Ley is the second largest island, completely devoid of human inhabitants and is where the movie "The Beach" was filmed starring Leonardo Dicaprio (Maya Bay).  Maya Bay, an absolutely gorgeous bay is sheltered by 100-metre high cliffs on three sides. Inside the bay there are several beaches, most are small and some only exist at low tide. The main one around 200 metres long with silky soft white sand, vibrant coral and exotic fish is an exceptional sight.

Explore the nearby Viking Cave or just relax at Samah or Pileh Bay and take in the breathtaking views. 

Let us help you make the right choice by tailoring your excursion to Phi Phi. Contact us with your requirements and we will ensure you have a memorable experience.

Koh Tachai

Koh Tachai Island is a small uninhabited island roughly halfway between the Similians and Surin islands.  At 165 kilometers north of Phuket and 65 kilometers north of Khao Lak most boat tours that come here are live aboard tours travelling from and to the Surin Islands and Samilians.  It is however possible to reach this area with a 2 hour speedboad from Khao Lak.  The main feature of diving and snorkelling here is its excellent wildlife.  The top of the reef has excellent specimens of hard coral while the deeper depths boasts many boulders, sea mounts and sea fans.  The region is particularly popular for spotting white tip reef sharks, nurse sharks, manta rays and the king of all marine animals, the whale shark.

If scuba diving is your thing you will love it here.  If you just want to snorkel you can do that too.

Racha Yai, about 1½ hours South of Phuket is a beautiful tropical island with plenty of hard coral reefs, colourful shallow water coral gardens, and a great opportunity for some enjoyable and easy drift diving. There are several excellent dive sites suitable for the beginner and for snorkeling, with depths from 2 - 20m, making this island a favourite destination for everyone.

Racha Noi, another 45 minutes South of Koh Racha Yai, offers some truly spectacular dive sites with giant underwater boulders, great visibility and scenery almost like the Similan Islands. Currents here can be strong, and the dives are recommended for advanced divers only. There is deep water around the island, so you often see large pelagic visitors such as barracudas, eagle rays, marbled stingrays and there is a chance of encounters with manta rays.
