This is a lovely place! First of all, the island itself- it is a very beautiful island, but the beach in the resort is probably the best on the whole island. And we had seen a lot. I am sure the beach in Koh Yao Island resort is also much better compared to the other neighbouring luxury resort- there is white sand, long beach, clear blue waters, no litter ( what you can usually see in Thailand), and you always have a feeling that you are alone.
The villas a very nice- built in a traditional way but with a modern touch. What is strange- but I found it as an advantage- that there are no walls what you can tradinionally imagine. So you can clearly hear the night sounds of the jungles. It is also so impressive when you can shower in your private bathroom outside, among flowers and trees...
The rooms are very clean, with fresh flowers on your arrival. The staff puts incense against mosquitos every day.
It is great that the resort provides snorkeling equipment and kayaks for free. You can also rent a motorbike not much expensive as you would get in the village.
I would definately recommend this place. You would get a view just like on the postcards of Thailand.
However, there are areas for improvement. The restaurant could hire more talented chef, as the food is ok, but for such place you would expect more..
And the excursions that you order from the resort are too expensive compared to what you get in the village ( and getting the same service).
Our verdict is - go there!
