They have a great pool with an amazing view of the sea. The beach has hardly anyone on it which makes it a lovely experience. It is not the nicest beach, though, and not very suitable for swimming as you need to go far out.
The hotel is a bit quaint and it does not allow you to flush toilet paper down. We stayed in a deluxe bungalow all the way on the edge. The negatives are that it is right next a rubber plantation and you get woken up by vehicles driving past in the morning, the bed and sheets are somehow a bit musty and the room doesn't seem to get aired very often. Another strange thing is that they only have lipton yellow label as hot tea. There are few options for dining out, there is a small local place outside the resort which other reviewers mention but otherwise you are stuck in the hotel where the food is passable.
However it's very quiet and great for relaxing, reading some books you never got around to.
The spa is wonderful and the massages professional.

Room Tip: try to get a room that's not too far out, otherwise you'll spend a good deal walking to the...

Went with a group of friends for 2 nights,fantastic ,peaceful,beautiful piece of paradise a short hop from Phuket. Rooms are large and well appointed,private and calming.The natural beauty of this resort is what makes it stand out,would really recommend this to anyone who wants to find a piece of paradise....only issue would be the food,needs to be improved a bit

Room Tip: If budget no problem,then definitely a sea front room,still very well priced

At present 29-11 we are staying in this resort and from the very moment we arrived 26-11, there is major construction on the beach, renovations of bungalows, building activities, a new Spa, inside dining room. It is impossible to enjoy our seaview bungalow because of this horribele, loud noise and the wonderful diesel fumes. The beach, infinity pool, everything is a no go zone !!!
We would have loved to read about this on tripadvisor, so we could have cancelled in time, but no other guest had mentioned it before. Funny because it is major construction and not something that is done in a couple of days

Room Tip: 704 and 705 right at the beach; 706 looks into the mangrove and has hardly seaview, but might be int...

Just returned a week ago (luckily just missing some stormy weather affecting the south!). Our fourth visit, with improvements seen each time on what was already a wonderfully idyllic place to spend a holiday. The beach has now been transformed, by shifting some sand and building a wall, into a place suitable for lying down as well as walking along (turn right and you can walk for miles along a deserted shoreline). The location is well-nigh perfect, rising up a hillside covered in mature vegetation, with large amounts of space between bungalows, all of which leads to a completely natural, unregimented appearance and absolute privacy for all. The bungalows themselves blend in beautifully with their surroundings, and are a well-chosen combination of the traditional and the modern; full of character, but also extremely well fitted-out. I am not particularly fond of swimming pools, but the infinity pool, with its interesting shape following the contour line and its wonderful view across to the islands, has won me over completely. On a previous stay, we had a terrific day out on one of their island-hopping longtail boat trips - this time we joined an adventure trip to the south of the island to see (and pick up!) giant starfish - great fun for all. We were fortunate this time in being around for 'Loy Kratong', a Thai festival for which a superb evening's entertainment, with excellent buffet, had been arranged
If you like Patong, with its burgers and nightlife, this is not the place for you. If you want to visit a thoroughly unspoilt place, full of character, yet with every comfort, friendly staff, and complete peace, you will love this resort. A good mixture of nationalities, mainly professionals, with a great atmosphere - easy to make friends, particularly when you have shared an activity or trip (starfish gathering is a fine icebreaker). A perfect honeymoon location, I would imagine, moreover.
This is my first Trip Advisor review - about time, as I always read reviews myself before booking!

We highly recommend it! If you and your partner both looking for a island trip / life then you should definitely go to Koh Yao Yai Village! We stayed there for 7 days. You will never get bored there seriously, as there's an Activity Center, over 10 tours that you can reserve! We reserved 4 tours in total - Island Exploring, Sunset Cruise, Village Tour and Canal boat. Room are amazingly great! We stayed at Seaview Bungalow, what we loved most? Its outdoor rain shower for sure....a best resort for city people for relaxing....For dining part - great great great. We had breakfast, dinner at same restaurant during the trip, there are lots of choices like pizza, pasta, burger, salad and Thai food! At first, we were bit worried about the dining, because the resort is far away from Phuket City and the last ferry is 5pm...don't worry about it. We are not the only couple dining in this way - every guests who stayed there are dining in this way too :)
I know some of the guests might consider about the security, VERY SAFE we can say! There's a security station at the entrance. Excellent service, friendly staff! Please stay at Koh Yao Yai Village. You will feel like you are a VIP....enjoy!

P.S...one thing should be worried is WEATHER! It rains a lot during Nov...

Best place to stay, you can see the beautiful view of beach from swimming pool. nice bungalow, even it's quite far from beach, but it's not important. Friendly staffs, after I got bad experience from the staffs of 5 stars hotel in phuket beach before, I never believe in the standard of luxury hotel, but not for Koh Yao Yai village because of all staff here kindly to help you in everything and everyt times also. Next time, I still choose you Koh Yao Yai village.
