There is a secret waiting for you A refuge…an oasis…a sanctuary Tucked away from the World that you know Built from nature’s bounty, by those who call it Home Where the only sounds you’ll hear are the music of the jungle and sea And the only fear you’ll have Is missing a single moment of it Step back in time, away from your World to the hidden one that was made for You. THE HIDEOUT Away from the World. The Hideout is an off-grid eco resort. Drop your baggage, exhale, and get to know the real YOU again! Our long-held dream has been to create a tropical sanctuary for all, where days will pass in bliss and balance – whether they’re spent surrendering to a hammock on a breezy deck, basking in the sun at poolside, or embarking on thrilling excursions on land and sea. And this all happens in an atmosphere of affordable luxury – comfortable accommodation, gourmet dining, and undisturbed natural beauty– fused with Koh Yao‘s pristine jungle environment and its wonderfully warm people.

Beautiful, amazing view. But do not go there. Super expensive for what you get, at night it was 36 degrees celsius inside the mosquito net (which was full of holes!!!). No fans, fine if you've built the accommodation in a way that takes account for tropical weather. But they had

Dear Jacquelyn H., Thank you for staying in The Hideout and thank you for taking the time to write this review. I take great pride in what we have achieved with The Hideout, so I'm hopeful that this response can offer some clarity on the issues with your stay with us. Firstly (and most practical) is regarding the heatwave during your visit. While the lion's share of our guests have enjoyed and embraced the unfettered immersion in nature at The Hideout (as well as unlimited spring water we supply to ALL Hideout guests, no matter the season), we understand that not everyone shares the same perspective. We would have been happy to help you find an alternate property with air conditioning and/or protection from the elements. Though you booked your room via a third party travel site (a non-refundable rate), we would still honour our refund policy once your room was booked by another guest — this was highly likely, as our calendar confirms we were completely booked at the time, but with potential guests asking about availability. Meanwhile, I must admit we have no intentions of adding 'fans' (solar powered or otherwise) to our rooms and common areas, as we believe this would disrupt the purely natural experience our guests have come to treasure at the resort. For potential future guests reading this -- and with respect to the traditional temperatures in the region in late spring -- we hope you will factor in climate and listed amenities before booking. Secondly: as your review states, there are more standard accommodation options on the islands for a more traditional travel experience. That said, we are proud to be the only sustainable 'boutique' location on either Yao Noi or Yao Yai that was built by overwhelmingly local craftsmen and women, staffed by the same, featuring materials indigenous to the island itself, while also serving an acclaimed and authentic southern Thai menu sourced almost solely from local ingredients through our Koh Yao farming partners. This is something that other accommodations here (no matter how 'eco conscious') cannot rightly claim, for most food, staff, and raw materials are imported daily from the mainland at these locations. And finally, I am truly sorry that I could not be there personally to address these challenges during your stay. It's true that our German intern Tine (and we are very proud of her achievements and abilities) was our representative for 'guest experience' in managers absence (as our local hosts are still building confidence with their English language skills, unlike traditional hotel hires from the mainland). That said, I must say that you are mistaken with your statement re: 'colonial' dynamics — in fact, The Hideout mandate and culture is to consider our Thai hosts as mentors, peers, and equals in every way. WE are guests in THEIR home, and will always be grateful for their generosity, hospitality, and friendship. Please feel free to send an email to anita@hideoutkoyao.com if you would like to discuss with me personally as we are striving to give our treasured guests an ultimate guest experience. Thank you again for sharing your thoughts. Anita Ritter

We spent a week at the hide out in February this year. From the moment we found the website we were drawn to its charm and beauty. As we arrived we were greeted with smiles from the staff team and some locals who were holding a ceremony to celebrate the hide outs anniversary.
