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
- Free WiFi

How to Get There
The Six Senses Yao Noi is a spectacular property nestled into a remote cliff side of Yao Noi island - reached by speedboat via Six Senses, 30 minutes off the coast of Phuket. The property is a eco-dream with treehouse style villas and sprawling views overlooking the peaceful sea. Off in the distance you can see the limestone caps of nearby island that look like statues strewn across the emerald sea. The views are remarkable!
The service is outstanding and their personalized touch is second to none. Their barefoot luxury experience in Thailand makes them a category of their own. Each villa is appointed with a guest experience maker to ensure you have the most welcomes stay. They assist with everything from top to bottom during your time and make the experience truly wonderful. Our GEM was Tokyo from Northern Thailand and he was the most kind hearted, funny and helpful young man. We were so delighted is his presence.
The resort is quite intimate with only a limited number of villas. There are 2 beaches on the resort, 2 restaurants and 1 large amenity pool on the hilltop overlooking the view (there are also large plunge pools in each of the villas)
Six Senses practises the utmost sustainability and gives back to the local community of Yao Noi. It is nice to support a hotel chain that has the best intentions in their heart when it comes to their impact on the local and global environments. Their sustainable practices make Six Senses resorts in a league of their own.
There are many daily activities to keep you busy throughout your stay and tours you can easily do off the resort as well. I highly recommend the local tuk tuk tour where you can spend a morning getting to know the island and get the flavour of life in Yao Noi. The island is a small community of very friendly locals. It is also very safe.
My husband and I also visited the nearby islands by long tail boat and it was an incredibly memory experience for us both.
One last note is about their spa. Their spa is wonderful and they offer a tailored wellness journey for the duration of your stay. You can return from vacation with an even healthier mind and body than when you arrived :)
The Six Senses Yao Noi was an unforgettable experience and made for the most memorable stay in Thailand. I can’t wait to go back one day!
This place is worth it! It’s definitely as I say for the most HAVE TO EXPERIENCE PLACES, bucketlist material! The people are fantastic the rooms are beautiful and the breakfast is worth it! Just the view is well worth the stay!
We had a wonderful experience at the six senses. The staff are wonderful (ploy was our personalised butler) she was so lovely, warm and welcoming. We did a beautiful yoga class one morning which was lovely. The breakfast was probably the best I've been to... like 10/10. The accommodation was next level, so beautiful. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, it's obviously expensive but you really do feel like you get your value for money.
We stayed here as a family of three (two adults and our five year old son) for four nights in a hideaway pool villa in mid April. Having stayed at the Six Senses Laamu previously we had high expectations and were not disappointed.
Our GEM, Oui looked after us for the duration of our stay and was excellent, always available to help or organise if required.
Our hideaway villa was set in the jungle and whilst not benefiting from the stunning views of the Ocean facing villas it was spacious indoors and out, modern in a rustic sense, private, perfect for relaxation and provided an opportunity to spot some of the local wildlife.
As many other reviews mention the views from the infinity pool and restaurant at the Hilltop are stunning.
We mainly ate at The Living Room and Hilltop restaurants and all the food was excellent with a good menu for kids. The free ice cream a delicious bonus!!
There are lots of activities to keep children entertained and the hotel organised an Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday. The kids movie at the cinema on the beach enabled my wife and I to have a quiet drink at The Den, whilst our son was entertained for 90 minutes. In summary this is a very family friendly hotel.
We booked a day trip to Phi Phi Islands, which I would highly recommend. We went out on a boat for approximately six hours during which we visited to some great snorkeling spots that were relatively quiet in addition to visiting some of the more well known lagoons that sadly were not as quiet but still a great experience.
If I had to come up with something negative, then I would say that if you're a beach lover and want to sit on a beautiful beach everyday, this might not be the place for you but the fact that the beach is not the greatest really didn't bother us.
If you want to go somewhere and relax and switch off in luxury for me this is the perfect hotel.
The weather in late February beginning of March villa was very comfortable, completed with the secluded mini pool and the stunning views of the rocks in the sea. Great service at any moment of our stay. The public beach adjacent the property was a pleasant surprise of warm water and quiet. Great choice of food at breakfast and lunch, the hilltop dinner is pleasant but the wonderful view and the superb service make the memory an enjoyable experience.
