We booked Kohyao for the longest time of our holiday. We so glad we did. It was really an unspoilt Island paradise. If you looking for a party don't come here, this is a place to relax and unwind. We had our own private bungalow which was excellent. The staff were great and was also nice to see a fellow...

We spent a lovely 6 nights at Koyao Island Resort as a family. The transfer from Krabi to the island was well orgainised & quick (via the public longtail boat).

Koyao Island Resort, our new found paradise! My family and I had a wonderful stay and look forward to our return. The snorkelling around Chicken Island with our ever so entertaining guide, Pong, was superb, and the 1260 epic stair climb up to Tiger Temple in Krabi with Donnie stand out as great memorable moments. The gorgeously decorated rustic beach...

As many of you, we booked this hotel after reading the great reviews on TripAdvisor but we were very disappointed. So many things to say about this resort.

Thank you for your feedback Miette75. We absolutely agree that the location of Koyao Island Resort is second to none with the most breathtaking scenery overlooking phang-nga bay.

We were in awe of the stunning location- absolute beachfront with stunning views. It was just perfect for our group of two families. So much space for the children to roam in a safe place with only 21 villas. Being there in low season meant the resort was not full and we often had the pools to ourselves not to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our villas are built in the original Andaman Sea - gypsy style which is optimal for comfort and for the environment. We have used unique local resources with a traditional background while still maintaining, if not surpassing, all modern standards. The mangrove palm leaf roofs of our villas breathe and do not store heat, and air conditioners are definitely not needed.All villas have an undisturbed, spectacular sea view of the famous Phang Nga Bay and can be opened up to the stars at night - and in the morning the rising sun shines onto the beds. ... more   less
