Dear Guests, Thank you for a great review. Short review but much said! Before the high season last year we installed a direct line, fiber optic internet with an individual "dome" in each villa. Just recently we upgraded the speed to 10Mb. Internet is as important as water in the shower these days. Welcome back and "zank" you for all... More

Really stunning bungalow: lovely, spacious interior, right next to a wonderful pool and across the road from the beach :) Great food (& fruit juices & cocktails) from Hook next door - which they'll bring right to the pool for you... Totally worth the money - we had such a fun stay. Not much to actually do on the island... More

Dear Guests! Thank you for a great review and photo contributions. To be called a "highlight" makes the team all warm. Its great to read and really boost moral. As you describe, Koh Yao Noi is very different from the places of mass tourism. I would definitely say that "to do nothing" is one of the top 3 on the... More

I'll start by saying, this place is Heaven on Earth. We could not have imagined how amazing our holiday would be. Ko Yao Noi is a beautiful island that has (thankfully) yet to be discovered by the masses. And Villaguna is perfectly situated on a gorgeous beach facing the Phang Nga bay and its picturesque islands. We stayed in a... More

We were on a honeymoon with a multi destination stop with Andaman Adventures. This was our second stop and by far one of the best ones out of all of them. We had our very own villa which was very spacious. The team running the resort are very international and you can see it in the attention to detail. The... More

This was a quick stop-in and I wasn't overly impressed for the price. I paid for an ocean view and you can see it, barely, from the back of the pods at the pool. We arrived a bit late so the room was not turned on with A/C, and the A/C unit unfortunately never really kicked into gear and there... More

Dear guests. You arrived 21.30 in the night without any previous information about this. During email correspondence we noted all your wishes regarding flower arrangements and other, we did our best and did what you requested. We also put you in the villa with perfect pool view and ocean view, even if you only booked 1 night. No, Villaguna is... More

We stayed for 4 nights in Villa Baya - we wished we could have stayed longer! Koh Yao Noi is a beautiful laid back Island and Villaguna is perfectly placed for fantastic views of the bay.

Returned from a 1 night stay in a pool villa - this place is absolutely perfect! The food is incredible and the staff even more so.
