Welcome to Camp Ngey! Ngey! - a Neverland for those searching for a break from the noise of the modern world.

Tuka

The camp is built from the remains of an old resort mixed with the Tao signature bamboo structures. We used reclaimed materials and remnants of old furniture to build a playful mix of private and sociable spaces. Wake up every morning in your own open sided bamboo ‘Tuka’ hut catching the ocean breeze and jump out and run down to the crystal clear waters for a morning dip.

    Who is this trip for?

    The Tao Experience is a social experience for like-minded travelers. We don’t mean people who think the same things, but think the same way. We welcome adventurous travelers looking to disconnect from the noise of the modern world, reconnect with nature, and be inspired by new perspectives.

    Each experience group has a wide mix of ages, nationalities, and backgrounds to make for an interesting, diverse, and vibrant atmosphere on-board and in the basecamps.

    The minimum age for joiners of this experience is 14. There is no upper age limit.

    All guests should be comfortable in the water as swimming is a big part of the experience. However, our crew are happy to help travelers worried about their physical capabilities.

    What time of year is good to visit?
