Thahtay Island (Burmese: သူဌေးကျွန်း), also known as Thahtay Kyun and Son Island,[1] is a small Burmese island within the Mergui Archipelago in the Andaman Sea. The island is directly adjacent to Ranong, a city in the south of Thailand and to Kawthaung (formerly Victoria Point). The island has been given by the Burmese government on a long term concession to a Thailand-based VES Group for development as a tourism. Grand Andaman is a five star casino club golf resort now operating on the island.
