Our villa although clean and well maintained, was anything but private with a seemingly endless parade of sun bathers pulling up pool lounge chairs to camp right in front of our private pool for the day. When we...

Koh Yao Yai is the getaway of Phuket. Not a lot of people know about it and it is not really on the schedule of tourists and backpackers - not yet. That's a good thing in my opinion. I visited the GLOW Elixir on Koh Yao Yai in May and I had a really relaxing stay. We got picked up...
