The outside bathroom was interesting,hot shower too,though a light would have been useful. Swimming pool was beautiful,food good,staff helpful and the beach area had plenty of shade from the... More

In between our landing in Phuket and PADI stint in Koh Tao my friend and I booked in for one night at Thiw son. It's charm was irresistible and we stretched to 2 nights, the max our time budget would allow. The wooden cabins are in lovely condition and I really enjoyed the open air shower, with reliable hot water,... More

We love Ko Yao Yai - it is so untouristic and so nice! It is true that the beach of the resort might not be perfect but they have a very nice infinity pool, a superbe view and the island is extremly interesting to explore. So get on your motorbikes instead of hanging around the whole day! They also organise... More

Thiw Son is a family owned beach resort, which we fell in love with, when we one day passed on our scooter and stayed here for five night because we couldn't get ourselves to leave. The beach is lovely and there is a swimming pool which my husband craved. The people at Thiw Son are so lovely and they made... More

We only spent 4 nights at the peaceful and spacious Thiw son beach resort. The restaurant staff was extremely welcoming and always cheerful! Our bungalow (superior sea view) was almost too spacious (separate bedroom and living room) - it comes even with a big fridge and a water kettle! The resort has its own swimming pool (ca. 17 x 7...

Firstly, ignore other reviews complaints about the sea being miles out. We stayed here for 5 nights and saw the sea at both low and high tide. The furthest I had to walk to the sea was about 15 metres. How anyone can complain about that is beyond me. We didn't use the pool but it looked pretty decent and... More

I have two thoughts about this place, so let me start with a little disclaimer: We thought we were booking a hotel on Koh Phi Phi, but it was actually this place on Koh Yao Yai (don't ask - alcohol was involved). So, for my good review. This was a super-peaceful little getaway island. We stayed in a beach hut... More

The resort (and the other resorts close by) are excellent for a few days of relaxing. There is nothing really to do, except hire a motorbike and explore the island. Tha nature on Koh Yao Yai is beautiful, and still not exploited much by turism or urbanisation. The absence of a proper beach is a minus (due to tidal water... More

Stayed for 3 nights after a hectic few days in Patong. Just what we needed, total peace and tranquility, beautiful views, lovely little restaurant open all day from breakfast until 8.30pm serving great food. (If you want a change of scenery for food, head next door to the Better View Hotel). The staff are lovely and did their best with... More

Overall this was an excellent resort. The view from the beach is unbelievably spectacular. The resort is on a very quiet island, making it very relaxing and far from the usual tourist crowds of Phuket. The food at the resort's restaurant is excellent. Everything is fresh and it was some of the best Thai food I had on my entire... More
