To begin with the downside: there are surely nicer beaches with less rocks and clearer water. But then, there would probably be many more tourists. And this is one of the many upsides of this hotel: it's small, very personal, and wonderfully quiet. The staff is friendly, smiling and helpful from the first to the last minute, the bungalows are...

Perfect. Staff were great...friendly and helpful. The deluxe suite villa we had was spacious and comfortable, with 3 sets of concertina doors which could be opened out to fully enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Hire a scooter, it's the best way to explore the island, and fun too. We were there in June when the weather can be unpredictable, but we... More

For a change from a weekend trip to Phuket or Krabi etc, we decided to visit Koh Yao Noi for the first time to relax and explore the island. The V R & H KYN was an excellent choice for accommodation, starting with the pre-arranged transfer from our hotel near Phuket Airport to the Resort via speedboat, which was well... More

The beaches at Koh Yao Noi are gorgeous - the one adjoining the Villaguna property is no exception. A short ride in the longboat takes you to other pristine beaches, and the Villaguna staff will pack picnic lunches for you. The rooms are a joy - but it's the staff who make your stay memorable. They are always ready to... More
