We enjoyed our stay from the very first minute. Way in advance I arranged for a private dinner to propose to my girlfriend. When we arrived it was all taken care off. The german manager took all the effort to make the best of this. Our dinner was served in our room on the veranda. The food was of very...

The island is beautiful and very quiet. We loved our pool villa on the beach. It was quiet and we could spend most of the day by our pool or in the water. The resort staff is very friendly and helpful. We rode bikes around koh yao yai one day and it was lovely.

Our expectations were exceeded by this place in just about every way possible. When looking for a place to stay in the islands of Thailand, you hear a lot of complaints about how most of it has been developed into large party resorts. Even some of the places our family members remember, like the beach on Ko Phi Phi, has...

The Resort was wonderful. Everybody was very very kind. We liked the people there a lot! On Koh Yao Yai are a lot of things to explore. The food was perfect. And there are the most beautyful sunsets. We are going again for sure!

Stayed for 3 nights in a beach front pool villa (8400thb net), resort itself is nestled away from the crowded Tourism areas of phuket as expected. Downsides: barely anything to do on koh yao yai. I did a cycling round trip around the island, thats about it besides water sport activities. However everything is charged even the use of kayak....

Very nice and relaxing resort with a nice pool and good food... The rooms are very comfortable and staff is friendly. There is not much to do around the resort but it is ideal if you want to relax for a few days.
