it is scarce to find place like Koyao. the hotel is located right on the sea shore. you have to walk 50 to 100 meters from your bungalow to the water. the number of rooms is less than 20 but the bungalows are located quite far one from the other. the area is very well preserved like a tropical garden....

We arrived by long tail boat directly on the beach we stayed in Villa number 5 which was lovely with outdoor sitting area, air conditioning and indoor...

I have nothing negative to say! Amazing place, rooms, peace, perfect beach, amazing staff, and what made it for me is that often at these upmarket resorts you feel like you'll be charged for everything... but here this is absolutely not the case! Complimentary massages, yoga, boat trips, cocktails and more!

Where there is love Koh Yao Noi is a lovely little island, only lightly touched by tourism and the outside world, and pure in the many ways we love Thai People and Thai culture, and the Koyao Island Resort is particularly well-suited for this environment. In fact, it is for this reason that we chose the Koyao Island Resort over...

We decided to have a mini break whilst on our 3 week trip to Phuket and picked Koh Yao Noi having visited on a day trip last year. We close Koyao as it is a small resort (only 18 rooms) and because of course it looks fabulous! We had one of the studios (above the bar) and it was simply...

Dear "JenLouEm" What a fabulous review, thank you so much! The See Breeze Studio's are certainly very unique rooms, the only rooms we have that is still open air. We will soon air condition them with a new air conditioning system that will only cool the air around the bed so no need to close the room up. Interesting that...

My wife and I stayed at the Koyao Island Resort for 3 nights in the middle of our Asian anniversary trip and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The resort is in a stunning location on a private beach with incredible views of the limestone islands from nearly everywhere you were. Our room was an open air private villa...

Stayed more than a week and were glad to leave. Paid a lot of money but the value we received for it was average. The villa we stayed in needs definitely a renovation. Had a water damage with a lot of wet clothes as a result. An apology from the management - keep on dreaming. Management cocktail with no management....

Dear "dave_marietta" Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is very sad and rather shocking for us to read your review, we only wished you would have asked for a manager to explain your dissatisfaction. The villa you stayed in was renovated 1 year ago. I would have to assume that your roof leaked and your...

We were staying 3 nights in the resort. Since all villas were booked out we chose the Seabreeze premium room (just 1 of that in the resort). The room was extremely spacious, very cozy decorated and constructed and gave the feeling of sleeping next to the see due to its 360 degree openness. Still the room provided enough private feeling....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our villas are built in the original Andaman Sea - gypsy style which is optimal for comfort and for the environment. We have used unique local resources with a traditional background while still maintaining, if not surpassing, all modern standards. The mangrove palm leaf roofs of our villas breathe and do not store heat, and air conditioners are definitely not needed.All villas have an undisturbed, spectacular sea view of the famous Phang Nga Bay and can be opened up to the stars at night - and in the morning the rising sun shines onto the beds. ... more   less
