We stayed at the Six Senses Yao Noi just the week before our wedding dinner together with my in-laws and relatives just recently in October and were blown away by the setting of the resort.
Granted that transfer time taken from Phuket Intl Airport to Yao Noi can be a bit tiring but you will quickly find much relief upon sighting of Yao Noi and even more so when you are greeted with the sight of the hotel set amidst lush tropical fauna.
We were delighted with the sightings of Hornbills upon arriving at our Villa which, coupled with a panoramic view of the sea, is beautiful to say the least! There are activities abound suitable for families, couples and children. Movies are screened by the beach side at 9.30pm for those who love being under the full moon.
The hotel pool at the Hilltop offers the most stunning vista you can imagine,with the formations of the rocks in the distance that offers similarities to Ha Long Bay but in a much more luxurious setting.
We were disappointed with the speed and service of the staff for all the times we dined at the Six Senses. The staff, though friendly and eager, often were flustered and did not seem to fully understand our orders. The first night we had mixed orders and very long waiting times. And for a family trip with 4kids, that was not the best combination.
The second time we dined, we were again disappointed because not only was the food slow to serve, the waiting staff had taken the wrong orders and were not able to tell us what dishes when it arrived nor who were the ones who had ordered it; everyone had their dishes arriving at a different time and we weren't able to enjoy dinner as a family. In the end, both my husband and myself never had our food served despite waiting for an hour plus.
The general Manager Jordi knew about what had happened and recovered quickly by making arrangements for us to dine once again in the manner and taste that is expected and associated with Six Senses and perhaps even more. Apart from the initial disappointment during dinner, Six Senses Yao Noi is the perfect getaway for the weekend or even longer! Guests should also take the chance to travel to Krabi, Koh Samui etc from Yao Noi instead of to&fro Phuket mainland.
We have no qualms is recommending friends since we know they will definitely LOVE it!
