We had an absolutely perfect weekend stay at Koh Yao Yai Village. Everything was great: scenic location, beautiful sea view villa, 2 infinity pools, delicious food, wide range of trips, efficient transfer service & friendly staff. We would highly recommend this resort to anyone visiting Koh Yao Yai.

The area surrounding the rooms are not well maintained. Grass were overgrown and looks really wild. If the management would invest more in maintaining the resort I believe it would be beautiful. Good thing was that the room is spacious and so is the restroom. However the shower area is always dirty with bugs dying Everyday in the shower area.... More

What a brilliant hotel! 35 minute speedboat ride from a little pier 25 minutes from Phuket airport, then a quick transfer to the hotel. This is as close to traditional Thailand I'd imagine one could get when staying in a luxury 5 star hotel. The bungalows are set in the natural jungle and lying on our mosquito-netted daybed on our...

This hotel is exactly what we were looking for. Truly, simple luxury. Bungalows in nature, clean, plenty of space, outdoor shower, and, the best spot for the sunrise (photo 1 is the view from our room, not to even say bed!). The products smell so good too. We even bought the shower gel... Haha tourists ;-) Pool is super cool.... More
