Ko Yao Bay Pavilions is one of those rare places that is actually what it purports to be. It is small, and thus has a sense of intimacy that is such an important commodity when looking for something special. We stayed in the Rice Paddy Villa, which is one of the ones not on the beachfront but for our purposes... More

When hubby asked me last year how I wanted to celebrate my 50th birthday, the answer was simple. I wanted to spend it at my favourite place and show my friends why it is so special. No brainer - Koyao Bay. It would also be our tenth visit. We arrived the best way - longtail at the beach. Felt like... More

Every thing was great. The island, small and charming with so many nice small beaches, kind people everywhere... and our quiet spacious suite at Koyao Bay Pavillions was just perfect !! a view on the sea, wonderful garden all around, pretty swimming pool... The cooking is great too. Thank you Manuel and Georges and all the staff for the warm... More

This was even better the next time round - we chose to stay at the Champa Villa this time. It was fabulous - the welcome from the Management was very real, even though we did arrive on bicycles! The cool drinks given to us were refreshing and we were then taken to our Villa - beautiful, 2 bedrooms, air-conditioning and... More

Koyao Bay Pavilions is a quiet, handsome, unique place. Warmfull welcome, traditional pavilions, swimming pool shape, water heat, resort size are perfect. It's also a real pleasure to walk alone on the beach... The restaurant, with few tables and opened kitchen is the best place we ate on the island. I'm looking for something to improve this place. I can't... More

I very much enjoyed my stay at the Pavillions, the location is beautiful and the resort is tasteful and understated leaving the land and seascape centre stage. I ate at the restaurant several times also for breakfast and the food was delicious my favourite meal was deep fried barracuda with lemon grass and banana flower salad, an experience! I stayed...

Highly recommended stay. I won't go into detail on the island, but Koh Yao is a secluded and fairly undeveloped island about 30 minutes from the coast. I went for this island because I wanted somewhere totally secluded from the mess of Phuket. The Pavillions are run by an attentive staff who strived to help us with every problem, but... More

We arrived for our honeymoon stay at Koyao Bay Pavilions in a private longboat ride that ended on our virtually-private beach. A "welcome party" of three hotel employees were waiting, no shoes on, to take our luggage from the longboat. And the rest of our stay was just like that. Anything we wanted to do the whole time was readily... More

We stayed for 4 days in mid feb for my 50th - had to be dragged away. Beachside villa, huge room beautifully appointed, plus you get a huge open plan sala of the same size. The setting and views are sublime, but nevertheless a nice and discreet setting. The beach is virtually private - very few neighbours. Stunning sunrises. All... More
