Six Senses Yao Noi is a wonderfully romantic island hideaway surrounded by lush jungle, turquoise waters and the limestone pinnacles of Phang Nga Bay. Of the 56 villas, some are nestled high in the rainforest, others with glorious sea views and some with stairs leading directly to the beach.
All have a large private terrace, private infinity-edged pool and are attended to by their own private butler.
WHY WE LIKE IT
It’s like staying in your own private tree-house. The vegetation and tropical landscaping envelop the villas providing privacy, and the thatched roofs and natural materials used create a rustic feel yet with all the detail and service to elevate this resort to the status of luxurious.
Explore the secluded beaches and local villages of the island by bicycle, sea kayak, boat or on foot. Some excellent diving and snorkelling sites can be accessed from Yao Noi or maybe a fishing or sailing trip. On land there are hiking trails and rock climbing sites and it is also possible to go elephant trekking. The hotel also offers wine tasting and cookery classes and there are regular boats running from the resort to Phuket and Krabi for those who fancy a day’s shopping or sightseeing.
