A great place for relaxing and experiencing the real Thailand close to the bustling Phuket. The Elixir has a nice range of comfortable, spacious villas, some with private pools. The rooms are furnished in old Thai style that gives them a cozy, warm feeling.
All villas have a bathroom and an outdoor shower, which, I think, is a really fun idea. The private beach is very beautiful with it's white sand and turquoise water, and the view of Phuket island and the smaller islands on the background.
There are also some swings on the beach and some hammocks. I was there every day relaxing with a book.
The restaurant offers a wide variety of delicious thai and western foods and the staff is friendly and polite.
I heard from the staff that starting from November, the Elixir will offer their guests different physical activities like yoga lessons, aerobic, zumba etc, free of charge.
From Elixir it is possible to book an island tour around Koh Yao Yai and see the real Thailand and the beautiful nature of the island. Some of the interesting sights I saw were the rubber tree forests, the rubber factory, rice fields, all the herbs and plants and of course the local living in general. You can also rent a scooter and explore the island by yourself.
If you are looking for nature and real untouched Thailand, Koh Yao Yai & Elixir is one of the best choise there is.
