There aren't good category resort on this island,and the Koh Yao Yai Village was a great surpriese, bringing high standards but respecting the environment.
If yoy are looking for a few days in peace and tranquillity, this is the resort destination.
All villas are the same size and layout, no discriminations. attention to details are lovely, a mix of modern style with naturla material. A big patio with sofa and sun beds offer a great space for relaxation. The pool is really big with a snake shape and looks over the stunning view of the Phang Nga bay. Don't expect a swimming in the sea it depends on the tide. If you want to swimming you should go on the beach on the other side of the island, the one looking over Phuket. But anyway, the view and the pool are great enough!
They are still missing a few things, but the manager told me they are working on it, as they have just open: the mini-bar has only water, it should be filled with beer, wine, juices, drinks... as there is no other place around to buy them, specially if you would like to relax at night with a glass of wine while reading a book.
They have at the moment an out-call spa service, but they are planning to build their own massage service. After mini-bar and spa will be settled, it will be a true 4 star service resort on a wonderful island. Tip: rent a motorbike or arrange a tour by long tail boat around the island, there are beautiful spots to discover.
