We stayed for 6 nights and we really enjoyed it. Friendly staff, good service, tasty meals breakfast, lunch and dinner. Lovely pool area to relax as the beach is quite low at low tide. The villas are nice and spacious and all situated around the pool. We went on a scooter tour around the island which was really lovely. You... More

Dear Guest! Thank you for a great review. There are many interesting points in your review to guide future guests, what to do while here...I agree with them all. Koh Yao Noi is a bit how Thailand "used to be" and gives you a surprisingly low key experience...only 30 min from Phuket. Its a good point and a main reason... More

Stayed for two weeks in a nice beach-front Bungalow, although it was not quite as beach-front as expected, we had to pass over the main road for the beach. The road was not very busy, but anyway. We had breakfast and most of our meals at the residence restaurant, the Hook. Service and food at the restaurant was good, and... More

Dear Guest! Thank you very much for your comments and guidance for future guests. Its really nice to read that our breakfast concept is working...thanks.

Stayed here only one night as a small trip from our Khao Lak holiday. Everything worked fine. Easy access from Phuket. 200bht from Bang Rong pier and speed boat takes only 30min. Songthaew pick-up truck costs 100bht per person and the ride takes about 15min to get here. No need to write the same praises as the others. We stayed... More

Dear Guest! Thank you for a positive review. Our average stay with us is 5-6 nights so we hope you can spend a few more days on your next visit. We do cut the vegetation around the private villas from time to time...but then get complaints about privacy as you say. I guess we need to figure out a middle... More

This well-located resort is tastefully designed, perfectly managed, and staffed by some of the nicest folks we have come across. We were glad we concluded our longish Asia vacation by resting for 5 days in this beautiful place. AIRPORT PICK UP AND TRANSPORTATION - We had a late afternoon flight from Chiang Mai to Phuket.
