Hello, we spent 6 nights there with my husband and these were 7 so relaxing days! The island Koh Yao Yai is not so touristic, so there are not so many hotels and tourists. Glow Elixir is on the south of Koh Yao Yai on the West part. This is very good position because you can see the beautiful Sunset...

This is a great hotel for relaxing and lying on the Beach. The hotel area is clean and the staff helpful and smiling. A nice Beach but be aware that it's only usable when there is high tide. The pool area is nice but not huge if the hotel is full, which it wasnt when we were there. There are...

We extended our stay from the original 3 nights planned to 6 as we absolutely loved this resort. Bungalows were immaculate. Beach was beautiful, private and very child friendly, swimming at high tide and beachcombing at low tide. Nice pool and good food. Staff was very friendly en extremely helpful. Special thanks to May for being our friend and showing...

We stayed here six nights in January 2014 in one of the beach front villas. The island is calm and still authentic with only a few tourists. It is the optimal location for those, who want to relax in peace and do not feel the need to go out of the resort much. The resort is beautiful and not too...

We were a couple - stayed for four nights. Booked via discount on Expedia. We had a lovely stay. Enjoyed the clean and well maintained bungalows with outdoor shower. Restaurant and breakfast were great. Staff was friendly (May/Mei was especially fantastic!). The only con was the beach - it was rocky with washed glass from the tide (from Phuket). The...

This resort is laid back and provides total relaxation in a beautiful setting. The food is fantastic (and cheap by Australian standards at least) the service impeccable, the rooms are clean and the massages relaxing and a bargin. However, don't make the mistake we did by flying into Krabi and transferring from there....unless you want to go to Krabi first...

We wanted to go 'off the beaten track' and maaan we found it when we went to Koh Yao Yai. This resort was quiet and romantic, where we just spent a whole lazy week chilling out on our private deck. It was so quiet, and there wasn't loads to do within the resort - but that was just what we...

I can't remember when was the last time I came back so relaxed form a weekend. Glow provides everything one needs to recharge and refresh. The setting is stunning - a lush tropical garden right by the sea, next to a lovely strip of white sand beach. The sunset viewed from the beach or from the bungalow terrace already make...

It's known to the locals more as just "ELiXIR", not 'Glow'. An hour flight from Bangkok to Phuket, then another 25 minutes to Phuket's Bang Rong Pier. There's probably an hourly boat trip (200 baht per person on a speed boat) from Bang Rong to Klong Hia pier of Koh Yai Yai's. The last one would be at 5.30pm. Quite...

This is an unpretentious, quaint little resort. It's tucked away with it's own beach - can trek the rocks with locals for starfish, hermit crabs, and other creatures during low tide, or practically step from the resort into the turquoise waters at high tide. 3 days is all you need to unwind, soak up some sun, and recuperate. We did...
