What To Know

  • Yao Noi is a sleepy island – those looking for more action should stay on Phuket
  • Better for couples; there’s no kids club, and families might feel out of place
  • The hotel is located on a hill, so getting to and from your room does involve some trekking (buggy service is available)
  • This is indoor-outdoor living, so make sure to bring bug spray (an all-natural version is available in rooms)
  • From May 1st - Sep 30th, enjoy free sunset cocktails, daily ice cream, morning yoga, and massage specials

2th visit

we (2 adults, child 7 and child 12) visited the hotel before new year. That means december 2018.

It was our second visit to the hotel. The first was 10 years ago.

I wanted to go back as I remember the hotel as fantastic.

Well maybe I forgot that the room I had the first time had the most amazing view and the room we got now was above the boath access, kids club and thaiboxing area. So the questness from the first visit was absolutely not the same.

The resort is 'setteled' the vegitation is great as it is getting old.. but that also means that the place itself really need some maintainance. As I understand the ownership has changed since our first visit and that apparently mean that they want o make money and not keep the hotel in its original very envirometal shape. The wooded floors and other wood area as been covered with someting that looses the original feeling.

First time we visited there was no main pool. The 'President suite' has since been take into use so that pool is the main pool.. the area around the pool is not mantained well.
And the main pool service is quite slow.
The beach was closed all through our stay because of Jellyfish.
As last time it has the worst mini barn in the world ;o)

When that is said I really like the food at the hotel and we had the best butler called NamNam.. If I could take him home with me to my private househould I would have done so.

The SPA is fantastic!!!

We visited a local marine area.. fisherman.. that was a fantastic good experience and the lady responsible for that was just fantastic.
I do like the hotel but it was not as I remembered.

Between shocking and disgraceful

Have honestly never experienced anything close to the service (or lack thereof) at this (5* ?!?) hotel. We were staying in Ao Nang and went to Koh Yao Noi on a reconassaince excursion to find nice prospective hotels to stay in. Had heard good things about Six Senses so decided to drop in to the hotel to check it out in person as often doctored pictures and/or reviews online are not to be trusted. When we arrived at the hotel (check point) we were treated like persona non grata. We asked if we could come into the hotel, perhaps for a cocktail and or lunch. This request was met by a lot of apprehension and anxiety by the hotel clipboard militia. After many phone calls to the front desk and minutes waiting, we were told the hotel was too busy to entertain us for a tour. We clarified we were more than happy just to have a look on our own devices. This required more stuttering by the unprofessional and unaimiable staff. Again after much deliberation, this request was deamed too much for the hotel. It was suggested perhaps we should come back another day. Have never been treated like such a paperless refugee in all my vast travelling experience. I would recommend you avoid this hotel at all costs. You will have more fun and better service at the worst Holiday Inn.

Stunning Gem of a Resort

We enjoyed a night away from the children at this beautiful resort. It is simply stunning - the location is so picturesque on the hills looking out to sea. The staff are wonderful and so helpful and friendly. From the host on the transfer service - Kun Nut to Kun Ma our villa host who took great care of us. We ate lunch at the Hilltop restaurant which was delicious and had a fantastic Thai meal at the all day dining restaurant. The best for me was breakfast - we collected our own eggs from the hens and ducks and they cooked them for us in a variety of ways.

What a fantastic resort! We wish we could have stayed longer!
