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
- Eco friendly
- Free WiFi

How to Get There
My husband just spent the last 4 days of our 11 day honeymoon at this perfect resort. There is not one detail left in thought of. From the minute we stepped off the airplane to the moment we departed. We booked an ocean pool villa and requested a quiet villa with the best view since this was our honeymoon. We were given villa #54 - with an amazing view and at the end of a road very far away from other villas. The view was breathtaking and there was a welcome bottle of champagne left for us since we were in our honeymoon. Our GEM - View - was so lovely. She was always there to help yet we always felt left to our own privacy. The self sustainability the resort maintains is impressive. We visited the farm and even got to see the baby goat that was just 6 days old. We took a private tour of the surrounding islands and our guide found a private beach for our picnic lunch. We booked an in room couples massage and breakfast one morning and it was truly the most relaxing experience. Again - the attention to detail was perfection. I love how attentive the staff is yet at the same time how interactive they are with the guests. I loved getting to know everyone that worked there and it was very apparent how happy they were. Never once did we feel that we were an inconvenience to anyone. The views were breathtaking. We felt we were living in a postcard. The villa was so beautiful it was hard to want to even leave the room. I’ve read reviews from other travelers - yes the food/drinks/hotel is expensive but never once did I feel that it wasn’t worth it. The overall experience warranted every penny. Our only regret is that we only stayed here 3 nights. If we could go back and replan our trip we would have stayed here much longer. When we left I was in tears because the stay and experience had been so beautiful. As the boat pulled away from the dock our GEM and 2 other hotel staff Stood waving goodbye to us until we were out of sight. It could not have been a more perfect ending to our honeymoon. Thank you Six Senses Yao Noi, our GEM View and all of the staff. We will be back!
Dear All at Six Senses Yao Noi,
My husband and I wanted to thank you and all the Six Senses big team for making our stay such a pleasurable one. We arrived in need of a vacation and needing to disconnect from our every day life and left feeling ready to conquer the world.
There is an inspiring inner peace, willingness to help and positivity that is shared by all the staff at Six Senses that makes it such an inviting place. We have loved the personality of the Thai people and enjoyed finding out that they have sense of humour akin to ours. We really enjoyed our villa with its breathtaking view, we also loved the food, trying new dishes and all the marvellous waiting staff. The sense of timing and punctuality and good communication between all working at the resort was nothing short of impressive, all done making everything seem simple and no trouble at all.
We enjoyed learning about the typical ingredients used in Thai food and with the help of our cookery class, we made our first Thai curry last night with ingredients we brought home. Now I have discovered kaffir lime leaves and Kaffir limes, I don’t think I can live without them in my life anymore!
A special thanks to our G.E.M. TabTim who how holds a place in our hearts. TabTim is so caring and genuine and she worked very hard at making sure we enjoyed our stay in every possible way. If there was problem to deal with she brought the person straight to us who would help deal with it, taking away any stress from us. We would also like to give a special thanks to Dr. Aneesh, the Ayurvedic doctor who has taught us both some important skills to take home.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts from Kuhn Margot and Kuhn Russell - villa 40 from 16th to 25th November :-)
We stayed for 6 days in early Nov 2018 for our honeymoon and absolutely loved everything about this place. I won't spend time commenting on the cost or the beautiful views because you can get both of those easily enough from the resort website. Instead, I'd like to comment about the amazing people and variety of activities available here.
The staff are extremely helpful, always happy and have an inner peace that we haven't experienced anywhere else. The best thing that you can take from this place is to carry some of that peace back to your everyday life. We found this true of the people in the restaurants, the spa, and the activities.
Special mention to our GEM, Gwen, who made this such a special week for us. Gwen went out of her way to anticipate our needs but also spent time talking with us about Thai culture, geography, religion, food, language, etc. There were days we wish she could have the day off so we could hang out with her. Through Gwen, we felt like we got to know a little about the wonderful country that we were visiting. Thank you Gwen!
We also very much enjoyed meeting and talking with Plā, who managed the Hilltop Reserve. Of course, she went above and beyond at every opportunity but we most enjoyed talking with her and getting to know her for the brief time we had together.
Six Senses also does a great job of offering activities with 3rd parties who match their values. We loved our afternoon on the longboat with Pad and our tour of the island on tuk tuk with Yan.
This is a special place with beautiful scenery, great good and best of all- truly lovely people.
Most stunning infinity pool I have ever seen. Very expensive hotel but the rooms are beyond impressive. Food was presented beautifully but taste was average. Cool movie theatre by beach. Beautiful property with stunning restaurants and bars.
A really beautiful place but it's kind of sleepy. The kind of place where you need to get a golf cart to bring you down to the main area from the luxury villas. If you're looking for a little culture or a place that as something lively, then perhaps look elsewhere.
