“Fabulous Honeymoon location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

My husband and I honeymooned at this Six Senses location in August of 2012 and it was a dream. From the moment we stepped off of the high-speed boat, we were greeted by a team of people who made our stay wonderful. We spent 8 nights there and loved every minute of it. Our Great Experiences Maker (GEM) was very attentive and made sure we were well taken care of. We did as much or as little as we wanted to each day. The food was really great and never felt like we were getting the same thing over and over again. We also participated in the cooking classes and purchased some excursions, which we would highly recommend.

Everything is perfect for me. They take a very good care of me and try to support all activities that I would like to do. The room is very comfortable and beautiful. Food is really good. The location is wonderful. I love it's stunning beautiful views that surrounded. I recommend this place to everyone who love nature and want the real relaxation.

Thank you for the review posted and for the beautiful photographs. All our villas are quite similar, the Hideaways face towards a plantation, mountain and do not have the Ocean view, but they come with great value. Our Ocean views have amazing views with added amenities. Our Ocean views do come with a premium but as a lot of reviewers have stated, it's worth the money spent. Of course amazing views are possible from the beach, Hilltop reserve lounge and swimming pool and the Bar.

I look forward to your return.

Best regards,

What I love about this fantastic luxury hotel is that it's as exclusive and private as you need it to be. When we wanted to be alone in the villa, we could be. When we wanted to be social, we socialized in the lounge area or went island hopping. Gorgeous.

Room Tip: Not sure what the options are, but we had a one bedroom villa and the outdoor space was huge. Plunge...

Thank you for the lovely feedback. The charm of the place is also exactly what you stated. Privacy, hideaway, getaway feel and yet loads of fun and excitement. It's up to you which window you would want to open and when..... or let the butler decide.

Best regards and look forward to your return.

This year is a very tough year for me with sickness in the family. I could not go away on oversea trip so I decided to spend extra money for just two nights at Yao Noi. And it did a perfect job to help me relax and feel good and ready to be back to real world again.
I picked "the View" room. It has no pool like other villa but it has the most stunning panorama view of the sea.
Everything at this resort is perfect from room, service and food. It's pretty expensive but I think it's worth the heavenly experience you will get.

I'm glad you could get out of your illness and the blues after visiting Yao Noi. The 'View' villa is quite a special villa. In-fact we have a wonderful package going on for it now. It's intimate, perched up on the edge of the mountain, it has an amazing views. One feels like living in a nest with the most amazing view in front.

Look forward to your return.

All those wonderful images you imagine of a luxury island resort in the Andaman Sea is what's embodied in Six Senses, Yao Noi. The experience begins when you arrive at Phuket airport - a busy mecca of travelers coming to these shores from all over the world. You are met and escorted to a van, who then whisks you away in about 45 minutes to a marina, and onwards to the hotel's launch for the hour or so boat ride to Six Senses. On arrival you are met by your personal even coordinator who checks you in, gives you an orientation, as is basically at your disposal for anything you may need (think reservations). Ours, unfortunately, left a whole lot to be desired...

The resort is well spread out over numerous acres cascading from a hill onto the ocean. The view is of the limestone formations in the distance (imagine 007 or the Beach) which are easily accessible by launch or long tail boat. Despite the generous size of these bungalows, we were required to book a 2 BR to accommodate our young daughters. Ours had a partial ocean view, pool, outdoor salas, indoor and outdoor showers, etc., and was conveniently located between the main dining area (restaurant, library, bar) and the Spa. We would have been delighted except the AC (which operates only in the bedroom areas) worked intermittently and temps hovered in the 90-100F with as much humidity. Windows open not much of an option as mosquitos where also an issue, despite the daily eco friendly fumigation. By comparison, you could have used a down duvet in the kids room (where I eventually moved to after 3 sleepless, sticky, nights). Management and engineering 3 times assure that AC was now working, only to again not. Unexpected frustration in paradise with resort fully committed.

Activities abound... several tours take you to these limestone formations where you can snorkel, swim, or just relax in your own castaway beach. You can also hang resort side by the beach - they project movies al fresco at night - or schedule a day of pampering at one of the best and most beautiful spa's in the world. Too hot for us for tennis, bicycling, or anything that did not involve jumping into the beautiful green-blu, bathtub warm, crystal clear water.

As for food, breakfast gets my vote. Aside from the "to be expected" stations, Six Senses has it's own bakery with freshly made baked goods and home made jams all contained in its own structure. They also have a self contained larder with cheeses, meats, and fruits. Best of all, they have an ice cream bar offering "free" treats from 7 to 7, so you know where the kids (ok, adults too) were heading as we stepped back from a day's excursion! Dinners are good, but can be a bit fuzzy (for us with kids, less so as couples) as the service is relax and (can be) inconsistent. For us, the best meals in beach resorts are the simpler, farm to table, variety accompanied with a nice cocktail and wine.

Except for the sleepless nights due to lack of AC, I would highly recommend Six Senses for families and couples. The setting simply cannot be beat, with wonderful opportunities to do as much or little as you want.

Room Tip: Worth renting the resort's speed boat to tour Phi Phi. Long tail boats are also great for closer...

Thank you for the feedback and information regarding your stay. I'm glad you overall thoroughly enjoyed your stay with the exception of your air-conditioning. This is indeed an exception and not an example of the comfort level of our lovely villas. I am aware of this even though it was quite some time back and of the compensation made to the family. Our team goes through intensive checks, audits and training to make sure our guests have a wonderful time. We are proud of being the highest in TA scores in Thailand and do try our best to make sure our guests smile more when they leave.
I look forward to your return.

We had a pleasant stay at the Six Senses Yao Noi.
The Hilltop Villa, I must mention, is absolutely breathtaking. It really feels like heaven on Earth and that alone is well worth the visit.
Staff was very friendly, yet it sometimes felt like not properly trained. This one time we asked to order food by the Hilltop Villa and were told it could not be done. 5 minutes later another couple got their order and the staff came back to us telling it was ok if we wanted to order.
Food as an overall was very good. We had some of the best thai food ever.
Our villa was very nice but quite frankly I now learned I am not by any means enthusiastic of an open bathroom and open closet - a lot of lizards I must say.
