Just came back from 3 nights at Koh Yao Yai Village as part of our family holiday with 2 teenage girls, and we rated this place as one of our new favourite places to stay. We booked the Family villa ( Family 01) and were very pleasantly surprised. The room had two spacious bedrooms (large king in one, and twin beds in the other) with flat screen TV in each bedroom. Indoor and outdoor showers off master bedroom - we loved the outdoor one looking up at the tree tops. We found the king bed a bit hard, but that was fixed by asking for a soft overlay. Large lounge area with plasma TV, spacious exterior deck overlooking the other villas was a great spot to spend the late afternoon. Little bit of a hike up the hill from the reception, pools and restaurant, but did not find this as too much of a negative. The two pool areas are simply wonderful, main one with horizon pool and pool bar offered spectacular views across the beach (at low tide) and nearby islands. The 2nd pool area was also lovely (another horizon pool overlooking rice paddies and beach) and did not seem as popular with guests, but we loved it and had lunch there a couple of times. We enjoyed the food, however the service was a little slow. The day trip we did to Hong Islands was arranged through the resort and was a great day of swimming, snorkelling etc around spectacular scenery.
All in all a wonderful experience and thoroughly recommended.
