The quite negative reviews on TA almost led us to believe we made a mistake having booked two nights at Koh Nang Yuan. Not so. The place is absolutely awesome. Yes, it is rather expensive. Yes, the huts are quite basic. But unlike many other reviewers, we actually found the food and the service reasonable. And we never got bothered... More

Rooms are very basic and are very very pricey however the peace and relaxing atmosphere makes you forget all the exceptionally high room rates. It is a private island and visitors are allowed only from 10am - 5pm. So during that period everyday, island is jam packed. After and before those hours it is a dream place. Actually Nangyuan is...

Don't be fooled by the other reviews. I was there on off-season period and it was great. Obviously during the day it gets packed with tourists visiting the island, but trust me, end of day and mornings are priceless! The rooms are not cheap and don't be fooled by the "resort" in it. This is not a resort, it's an... More

We are a family with two small kids living on Koh Tao for 3 months. I have visited Koh Tao numerous times over the last 20 years and thought i would share with them one of the most picturesque beaches i have ever seen. Knowing this is a private resort and having travelled extensively throughout my life, i went into... More

We had a wonderful end to our two week long honeymoon in Thailand! Nangyuan island was incredible, the service great and the memories unforgettable! Eventhough it was busy at day, the late afternoons and early mornings were immaculate! Thank you for a great experience!

What a shame to spoil this beautiful place by letting hundreds of paying day tourist in for diving (what a joke, the water in the bay is no more than 8 feet deep) and snorkeling. We paid a lot of money for a hut and on internet it looked like paradise but in real life it's an invasion of mainly... More

The little island resort turned out to be transformed in to busy, money making machine. Years ago it was the beautiful, unknown, of the track island resort. Now in these days the big catamaran ferries off load daily masses of day tourist. It became a bustling, overcrowded beach island. Gone are the days of a peaceful, relaxing, family style run... More

My husband and I were so excited to stay here at the end of our 3 week honeymoon around Thailand and looking forward to luxury but were very disappointed. As we had paid a lot of money- for the view and beach bungalow- I thought the service would be good and we would be looked after I thought wrong. The... More

I came here 4 times between 2004 and 2007. After a 7 year hiatus, I brought my fiancee, hoping to show her this "special place" that had drawn me back again and again. Sadly, after this visit, I may have to say: never again. Nangyuan has descended into a very bad place: it is completely overrun with day visitors, the... More

Staff at the restaurant is rude and not helpful at all. It's the only place to eat on the island. At around 10 in the morning the first (mostly Chinese) tourists arrive on the island. The place is really flooded with tourists coming for a snorkling day trip. No where to sit, no where to swim. Hundreds of people board... More
