Koyao Island Resort is the perfect spot to unwind. The cabins are very comfortable. They are open, rustic design, this means that you wake up to a spectacular view. The beach is very quite and it often feels like you are the only people there. The staff are all outstanding, we would like to particularly like to thank the office... More

Excellent resort on a quiet lovely fishing island in the Andaman Sea, stayed here for 5 nights. Beautiful and tranquil setting, very laid back and the place never felt crowded even though it was high season. Beautiful private beach (though there is another resort due to open next door in next few months which will share this beach.) poolside area... More

We absolutely loved the Island Resort and we loved the open air concept and the vision of the creator. We signed up to it when we booked. I can honestly say that this place exudes a charm and tranquillity that I think will be increasingly hard to find in Thailand. We tend to go for ‘charm’ over ‘western comforts’ but... More

Truly, a quiet gem only one hour from Phuket or Krabi. Still underdeveloped, the island has a laid back easy going charm hard to find these days - 3 people on a 600m beach for example (mind, you have to find it by exploring!). I suspect it may not stay that way for much longer so make sure to visit... More

After moving to Bangkok a month earlier we were looking for our first Thai island getaway with some friends who were visiting from Australia. After booking flights to Krabi, we started looking around for somewhere to stay. Ko Yao Noi instantly stood out, given its reputation for being untouched and non-touristy. To get there its about 1 hour from Krabi... More

On arrival at Koyao Island Resort not much can be seen from its rustic driveway leading to the entrance. But stepping through the reception area you are greeted with enormous views of Phang Na Bay.
