Reviewed 29 January 2014

This was supposed to be the highlight of our trip. The scenery is amazing, and Koh Yao Noi is nice downshift from the chaos of some other places in Thailand. But something bad seems to be happening at the Koyao Island Resort. We experienced some astoundingly warm hospitality while in Thailand, and here it seemed nobody really cared. One of...

Koyao Island Resort was the perfect blend of luxury and rustic for my family and me; we found ourselves completely relaxed as the boat dropped us off on their beach. The staff was very friendly, attentive, and recommended some great activities, and it never felt like they were selling anything extra, which is such a nice break from hotels that...

We recently enjoyed a 3-daystay at Koyao Island resort and should have stayed longer and by-passed overcrowded Phuket altogether. The rooms provide all the essentials while having a rustic charm. Our room was spacious and airy, the bed and bedding very comfortable. Reasonbly fast free wifi, no cumbersome log-in needed. Our only suggestion would be to provide slightly bigger room...

We had two nights here in December. The rooms are amazing and a great location right on the beach and next door to the Six Senses. The food and drinks are over priced, breakfast great, but the complementary trips for guests give this place 5* rating

We loved the week we spent here, were made really welcome and would happily have stayed longer.

We stayed at the Koyao over our honeymoon. We were looking for a place that would offer a chance to relax on the beach while also appreciating the native culture - we couldn't have found a better spot. The Resort itself is tucked away on a small island that still holds the flavor of a fishing village. The resort feels...

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
