We loved the week we spent here, were made really welcome and would happily have stayed longer. Both the island and the resort are extremely friendly, relaxed and small enough to feel intimate but not claustrophobic and we feel very fortunate to have found both. The setting of Koh Yao Island resort is beautiful with majestic palms, sandy beach, dotted with coral and shells and muted limestone silhouettes jutting dramatically out of the Andaman sea. The beachfront rooms and grounds are stylish and well cared for. The resort (which catered for all our needs but didn’t feel ‘resorty’) rents mo-peds enabling us to zip around the island where so many people smile and seem glad to share their space with strangers. On enjoyable boat trips, we snorkelled and did 2 person kayaking through caves into concealed lagoons. We enjoyed cocktails at the bar, easy chat with our hosts and other guests, the whole experience feeling natural, classy and never too buttoned up. All the staff were friendly and service-minded. The very hospitable owner Jean-Michel was there, mixing with everyone and clearly regarded with affection by his staff. We definitely hope to return.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our villas are built in the original Andaman Sea - gypsy style which is optimal for comfort and for the environment. We have used unique local resources with a traditional background while still maintaining, if not surpassing, all modern standards. The mangrove palm leaf roofs of our villas breathe and do not store heat, and air conditioners are definitely not needed.All villas have an undisturbed, spectacular sea view of the famous Phang Nga Bay and can be opened up to the stars at night - and in the morning the rising sun shines onto the beds. ... more less
