Stayed here three nights in February. There are only around ten bungalows and only a few of these were occupied, meaning it was very silent and calm. We had a bungalow with a sea view and were very content with it. On the terrace you can lie down in chairs and enjoy the view and silence. I would rather had... More

An authentic island, with authentic thailandese people.. Pond the owner is a wonderfull woman, her mother wonderfully cooks fresh seafood that you can choose directly from the village seamen shop.. The bungalows are modern and cosy, the view is wow.. Perfect!

If you're looking for a secluded hotel with a beautiful view where you can relax, this is it. Your host is Pond, who will take so good care of you, the food is divine and the rooms are beautiful with a nice bed. There is no pool, however the beach is at the bottom of the resort's hill. Our stay... More

We spent a week at Esmeralda View and this was truly the most relaxing week ever. The bungalows (superior with seaview) are comfy and clean with a great view. Pond is a wonderful hostess who does not speak the best English but does everything to help or explain or show things. The food is simply amazing, fresh and very thai.... More

We arrived at the pier in Koh Yao Yai by longtail boat as dusk fell and the approach was magical. A taxi to Esmeralda View was easy to find and although late, we were welcomed by Pond, the proprietor and shown to our sea view bungalows on stilts looking straight out over Phang Nga Bay. Rooms were clean and beautifully... More

We didn't make a reservation here but got the last villa when we arrived. The staff is super friendly, all cottages have great sea views. We rented a motor cycle to tour through Koh Yao Yai and Koh Yao Noi. It's located pretty convenient to see both.

We had the great pleasure of staying at this perfect place during our 3 week vacation throughout Northern and Southern Thailand. Already calling Miss Pond to ask about vacancies was very delightful. Even through the phone you feel the welcoming warmth and happy spirit we were about to experince a few hours later upon our arrival. Pond runs this treasure... More

We loved staying here! These wooden bungalows are on stilts built into the hillside and the ones at the front have fantastic views. We left the curtains open (no-one can see in) so that we could lie in bed and see the sunrise each morning. The room had everything we needed, including a fridge, huge comfy bed (with mosquito net),... More

We wanted to stay somewhere away from the crowds and party atmosphere of Phuket for at least a night. We flew in and went straight to the pier (be careful, the taxi company assumed we were going to Phi Phi and took us to the wrong pier). We arrived in time for a long boat over to Koh Yao Yai... More
