Villaguna very nice resort i like there so much because when i wake up in the morning i can walk to the beach just 1 minute and owner very friendly. it's make me happy for weekend trip with my sisters. if anybody like a private and natureral beach i would like to recommend Villaguna at Koh Yao Noi. I will go there again for next trip.However, I like people i like location i like beach and i like resort at Koh Yao Noi.

How to say about this place?? First step when I arrived to Villaguna at Koh Yao Noi make me miss someone who should come with me because it such a beautiful place and so relaxing. I really enjoin my stay with 2 friends and we did many activities. First of all would like to thank you to Owner who provide an excellent service and make our stay more fun!! on the sailing. Me and my friend went to the restaurant just next to resort they made a good Thai food and people in this island are so beautiful smile we ride the motor around the island to see they life style. You will see many things that never can find in Phuket.
The swimming pool is super! I enjoin too much. Not thing to do at night but we spend time in our room watch the movie and go sleep on the comfortable mattress.
I would like to come back to Villagana again next time and have a good time here trust me.

It was a great trip to visit Villaguna, actually it was my first time to visit Koh Yao Noi and villaguna is highly recommend to have great relax, quite and surrounding with local life style. Thanks Raymond to take a good care of us. One of the most interesting activity was sailing along the deep blue ocean. Its suit for honeymoon couple or family who want to escape from town like phuket every cities. I had a chance to view the top type villa which is suit for family trip as well as party group.The most favorite is a very nice and large swimming pool which you can dive ( 3 meters dept) It was just fantastic and I will visit your place again Raymond & wife.

Thanks & regards,
Fern

We have been traveling for nearly 3 months and happened to come across some information on the very small island of Koh Yao Noi. We booked 4 nights at Villaguna and from the moment we got off the ferry from Phuket to Yao Noi, we thanked ourselves for this decision over and over again! The island is very small and remains quite undeveloped (even more so during low season). The water is indescribably crystal clear with picturesque limestone cliffs emerging from the water. It is everything you imagine for Thai paradise and more!!

Upon arriving at Villaguna, we were greeted by one of the wonderful owners, Nadine, who could not have been more welcoming, friendly, and helpful! Her and her husband are such amazingly kind people who consistently made sure our stay was enjoyable. The villas are absolutely immaculate. They are the best quality construction we've seen in Asia, maintaining an Asian feel while having all the best Western amenities. The Deluxe Beach Suite is ridiculously large with a sitting area in the living room; kitchen area equipped with a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, full set of dishware, utensils, refrigerator, wine glasses, and kitchen table; very large and comfortable bed in the spacious bedroom; separate AC units in both the living room & bedroom; and beautiful bathroom with newly designed outdoor rain showers... they look EXACTLY as they do in the professional pictures. The pool is beautiful and big and every single time we walked out of our villa and saw the beautiful view, we lost our breath! We couldn't bear to leave after 4 days so we ended up extending our stay. Even after 7 days, we were genuinely sad to leave.

The previous review complained of power outages and maintenance problems. We experienced similar issues. The weather was stormy for our first two days which led to spotty power outages and the internet connection was inconsistent, especially in the mornings but in our opinion, these things come par with being on a secluded island in paradise. We actually welcomed our "un-wired" status while taking in the beauty.

One of our days was spent with a fisherman named Alex who took us to several small islands off the coast of Koh Yao Noi snorkeling, swimming, and even brought us lunch, made by his wife, to eat on a secluded beach. It was the perfect day and Villaguna helped us organize the whole thing. I'd definitely recommend doing a day trip with Alex.

We also rented a motorbike to get around and see all this little island had to offer. The locals are all so friendly and greet you which warm, welcoming smiles.

Koh Yao Noi is definitely a must when visiting Thailand & Villaguna is the perfect place to stay while in paradise! We're recommending it to all our friends and family and can't wait to get back again!! After about 50 different hotels, this was our favorite!! Thank you, Villaguna, for providing us with the Thai island experience we were longing for!!

We managed to find a vacancy at this beautiful looking resort, at our 3rd attempt - previously it was fully booked. It's a brand new resort, with impressive villas, in a lovely spot, on a lovely island. Although huge amounts of money have been spent on decor and fittings, not enough attention has been paid to maintenance and customer satisfaction. Despite the well-meaning assurances of the French owners and French management we spent 2 nights of our 3 without any hot water, due to an electrical problem. We woke, on the second morning to find that the power and, therefore, the AC had been off since midnight and wasn't restored until after 10am. Unlike other resorts, they have omitted to install a generator for just such an event - all too frequent on these isolated islands. Large numbers of local employees roam the grounds, but the walkways and access paths are overgrown and waterlogged, when it rains. The inclusive breakfast isn't worth getting up for and we saw that entire families retreated to the little cafe 100 metres down the road. It's selling at a vastly reduced 3500+ Baht per night compared to the advertised rate of 7000+, but needs to improve its performance if it wants to attract enough customers to make it pay.

Room Tip: Some rooms front onto the road. Nice for view of beach and sea, but noisy with motorbikes and taxi-b...

I went to Villaguna residence one week because friends highly recommended me to stay there if I was in thailand.
The reception and accommodation were great and beautiful place (mostly the biiiiiig pool).
I rent a bike and a scooter at the hotel (really cheap) and I go around the island that is still untouched by tourism.
The breakfasts on the beach are very good, espresso and always fresh fruits !
The Villaguna restaurant (bar and lounge ! ) is cheap and this is one of the best I've tasted on this beautiful island !
Next to Phuket's airport , just ask at reception for the speed boat and taxi..

** Ty for this unforgettable trip Villaguna **

Room Tip: All rooms are just front of the pool and 50 yards from beach
