To cut to the chase, this place is lovely, really lovely. It's small, charming and absolutely has the best views from the infinity pool and the restaurant out toward the many islands in the bay. As a family of five we required 2 rooms which turned out to be a double bungalow (D2) with adjoining terrace, built out of wood... More

We stayed in the resort for 3 nights and checked out this morning. The place is as great and wonderful at certain aspects as horrible in others. It is very difficult to give you a clear overall opinion of the place so we will mostly describe facts and you judge them on your own. The resort itself is beautifully positioned... More

We arrived to Thiw Son Beach Resort in the middle of the day, exhausted and cooked from the sun. They welcomed us with wet cold towels and refreshing drinks. It was really nice. Our room was ok but it had no mosquito nets on the windows, and since it had no A/C it was crazy hot inside but we couldn't... More

I stayed here over a year ago. The bungalows are very nice, the staff was great, the restaurant served delicious food, the pool is new and well-placed and the island itself is very low-key. Here's a small excerpt from my travel journal about Koh Yao Yai and Thiw Son Resort that hopefully gives you a little flavor of the place:... More

Has a good price selection of different type bungalows, compared to other places in the expensive island. The third row is behind the road, but is quiet. The garden is kept luscious and clean and is well designed. Comfortable beach chair with stunning view, also from restaurant and swimming pool. Perfect room service the first couple of days, minimal thereafter.... More

We booked very last minute, seeking off-the-beaten-track accommodations, and we were not disappointed. We did have to change rooms a couple times during our 8 days there, but as I said, we booked on the day we arrived. The beach isn't great for swimming as it is murky and not too appealing. The pool is lovely and clean. Only drawback:... More

We stayed here in Dec 2014 for 7 relaxing nights with my two young children who had a fabulous time. The island is peaceful, relaxing and so far unspoilt. We have visited Thailand on many occasions but not recently and were diappointed to see how commercial other areas had become. The resort is simple, clean and well cared for. The... More

I almost don't want to write this review, as Ko Yoa Yai, as it is at the moment, is perfect, however with the development of major resorts starting around the island, I doubt this little paradise island is going to last forever. We stayed at The Thiw Son Beach Resort for 5 nights from January 3, 2015 after a week... More

We stayed here after 5 nights in Yao Noi, late December. Our room was comfortable, the food was reasonable, same as in most places. Friendly, helpful staff and free wifi. Value for money average as we got better for less later. Recommend staying here as a base and taking a scooter to explore the island and of course the deserted... More
