This place is acutally on Koh Yao Noi and it's very beautiful.
It's owned by a Thai family and they do everything to make you feel comfortable. It's an easy 10 minute walk from the Pier (coming from Krabi), people come from all over the island for their food (yummy!!), bungalows are very clean and nicely decorated. Suntisook has everything you can ask for and I would highly recommend staying at this place.

We weren't expecting to stay as long as we did. We arrived on a rainy, gloomy evening and could barely see where we were. We were able to choose from a few of the bungalows and though they were all very nice, we chose the one that suited us best in the back corner, with a view of what we knew to be ocean beyond the dark haze. We had dinner, which was good and well priced, and called it a night.

We awoke to the most beautiful sunrise. Phang Nga bay is just off the coast, and watching the colors bounce off the limestone and low tide proves for a spectacular sight. We ended up running out to watch it almost every morning. It really is on the best part of the island. It is quiet enough that you don't have to worry about hoards of people, and there's enough nearby to grab a bite when you want. But then there's always Suntisook's kitchen, which is a very good option indeed.

As for the Bungalows, ours was said to have a double bed, but I'd call it a queen. It was a bit hard, but in comparison to the rest of our beds in Thailand, fairly comfortable. (I think Thais like a really firm mattress) The room was clean and was cleaned every day and water replenished in the mini fridge even if we hadn't finished the two from the day before. The bathroom had two showers, one hot water and one 'natural rain'. This worked out nicely because my husband always needs a bit of warmth to his water, no matter the outdoor temperature, and i prefer a cool shower in the middle of a hot day. And to be completely honest, the rain shower wasn't that cool. (but the AC was) There was a flatscreen TV and DVD player, and they have an interesting assortment of DVDs to borrow. Suntisook has a 'fleet' of motor scooters to rent and we also borrowed the kayak for a day to brave the Phang Nga Bay to see the limestone karst formations. Well worth it, but very tiring, and watch out for sunburns.

The family who runs Suntisook are very nice, and extremely accommodating. They always greet you with a smile, even if you show up for breakfast earlier than they offer it (we didn't realize the time). I highly recommend Suntisook to anyone who wants to find their lazy Thai paradise.

Room tip: Go the extra mile and choose one with AC, it's well worth it. Also, be sure your front porch has a view of the ocean, I'm not sure if all of them do. But, if sunlight wakes you up and you like to sleep in, maybe try to avoid seeing the ocean, so you don't get a view of the sunrise to wake you up.

We stayed at Suntisook for about two weeks in the low season and enjoyed every minute. Chewy runs the place and she does a great job. She is an excellent cook and offers a variety of local dishes that we loved – prawn, chicken, fish – everything we tried was tasty. We actually preferred to stay and eat in the resort after trying some other restaurants on the island, because it was so good. Chowy’s good hospitality made us very comfortable and cozy. The hats are lovely designed and comfortable, some of them had just being renewed. The hats are not too close to one another and surrounded by beautiful garden with variety of plants, orchids and butterflies. The view from each hat is stunning, especially at dawn and sunset. The resort faces a beautiful shore line which changes dramatically over the day because of high and low tide. We spent a day or two without leaving the resort just exploring the near surroundings. There is an option to rent a car for a day and use it for travelling in the island. We highly recommend doing so because the island is beautiful and there are many places to explore. There is a television in each room and a library of books and movies that can be borrowed. We had a relaxing and comfortable vacation in the resort, and we highly recommend it.

Room tip: some rooms have been renovated lately, ask for those.

We spent 3 nights in a comfortable bungalow in front of the bay. If you're looking for some quite location and a stunning view this is the place. The family running that resort is really kind and nice. Beds are good and have a moskito net. We took a room with fan which was enough as it wasn't so hot at night. Rooms are cleaned everyday.

We stayed here for 3 nights last week (March 2012) after booking through a local thai agent(advice-book direct as they didnt know we were coming)
A small family run resort where nothing is too much trouble. The food here is really good(try the pancakes for breakfast!!)
The rooms are cleaned every day and we even managed without aircon at 1200bht per night.
Chewi even aranged for her husband to get out of bed early to take us to catch the 630am speedboat and waved us off with the rest of the family.Thankyou!!
Mopeds are available to help you get round the island which I would recomend.
Yao noi is a small island with really friendly people. A few more restaurants than its sister island yao yai but still retaining its thai character. Take the time to speak to the locals, you'll be surprised how friendly they are and how good their english is(though they wont admit it).Even if they dont speak english you can easily manage to communicate.
We would definately return, and my only hope is that yao yai and yao noi retain its character and dont succum to the power of commercialism!
