Very nice and relaxing resort with a nice pool and good food... The rooms are very comfortable and staff is friendly. There is not much to do around the resort but it is ideal if you want to relax for a few days.

GloW Elixir is nice medium size resort with good amenities. The staff is very friendly and though they struggle with their English their intentions are spot on. The rooms are not big, but they did meet our expectations. The beach on which this resort is located is coral beach. The entire coral reef is visible during the low tide and... More

My girlfriend and I treated ourselves to this place for some luxury at the end of our 3 week trip to Thailand. When we arrived we were offered a welcome drink which was a lovely gesture however it was very sugary and not to our taste. We had some lunch before we checked into our room which was lovely. The...

This is a typical upscale resort with nice rooms, but with below average food and no atmosphere as you would experience it in Thail familiy run resorts. Especially the food was really disappointing to us as we expect to get good authentic thai food, but unfortunately almost all Thai dishes were too much aligned to Western taste. I can get... More

Hello, we spent 6 nights there with my husband and these were 7 so relaxing days! The island Koh Yao Yai is not so touristic, so there are not so many hotels and tourists. Glow Elixir is on the south of Koh Yao Yai on the West part. This is very good position because you can see the beautiful Sunset... More

This is a great hotel for relaxing and lying on the Beach. The hotel area is clean and the staff helpful and smiling. A nice Beach but be aware that it's only usable when there is high tide. The pool area is nice but not huge if the hotel is full, which it wasnt when we were there. There are... More

Beach was beautiful, private and very child friendly, swimming at high tide and beachcombing at low tide. Nice pool and good food. Staff was very friendly en extremely helpful.

We stayed here six nights in January 2014 in one of the beach front villas. The island is calm and still authentic with only a few tourists. It is the optimal location for those, who want to relax in peace and do not feel the need to go out of the resort much. The resort is beautiful and not too... More

We were a couple - stayed for four nights. Booked via discount on Expedia. We had a lovely stay. Enjoyed the clean and well maintained bungalows with outdoor shower. Restaurant and breakfast were great. Staff was friendly (May/Mei was especially fantastic!). The only con was the beach - it was rocky with washed glass from the tide (from Phuket). The... More

This resort is laid back and provides total relaxation in a beautiful setting. The food is fantastic (and cheap by Australian standards at least) the service impeccable, the rooms are clean and the massages relaxing and a bargin. However, don't make the mistake we did by flying into Krabi and transferring from there....unless you want to go to Krabi first... More
