We decided to go to Kao Yao Noi from Ao Nang and caught the speedboat for the transfer to the island. We loved the bungalows. Very rustic and set on the hillside. You will only love them if you are ready for basic accommodation. Some bungalows have hot showers and a fridge but we stayed in No. 4 with cold shower. This bungalow had a huge terrace with 2 hammocks. Great for chilling in the afternoon. The bungalows are right on a sandy beach and the sea is good for swimming.
Previous reviews don't speak highly of the food but we cannot fault the food we had. The restaurant was busy every evening with guests and those from other accommodation. The island has plenty to do kayak, mountain bike, visit the market and the town, swim or just sunbathe. It all depends what you're looking for. It's a great island to chill, meet the friendly locals and get a taste of a Thai island.More
