Een bijzonder eiland van Thailand: Koh Yao. In de baai van Phang Nga, tussen Krabi en Phuket, liggen de eilanden Klein- en Groot-Koh Yao. Het kleine, noordelijke eiland (Koh Yao Noi) is omgeven door kalkstenen rotsformaties die in de loop der miljoenen jaren zijn gevormd en vandaag de dag een schitterend nationaal park vormen. Hier bevinden zich ook enkele prachtige stranden.
Myself and my husband were booked to stay this Christmas for our babymoon though for very exceptional circumstances we had to cancel. The Reservation Manager could not have been more accommodating in helping us resolve our personal situation and I subsequently cannot wait to rebook. Whilst I haven't yet visited the hotel, I felt the need to write a review to report how rare it is to find such a hidden paradise in Thailand combined with such good management.
"Fantastic Island Hideout"
There are a lot of beautiful islands in this world but this one was one of my favorites because of the fantastic staff, the wonderful hotel, and the serenity of the place. Absolutely great. My girlfriend and I spent 9 epic days here and we loved it.
"Trapped in Paradise"
Thought long and hard before writing this review, it's a long one but in short if you're after just a beach holiday in a nice resort and are happy to pay the resort prices you'll love it but... If you enjoy independent exploring, get restless staying in a resort or enjoy eating at different places in the evenings you're unlikely to enjoy it due to the isolated location. Some aspects of the resort are truly excellent. We loved the eco ethos and employing local people... but they have a monopoly being isolated (7.5km hilly bumpy dirt track or boat to get in and out) and really do take considerable advantage of it which left us both with feeling a little trapped and as the heart and soul was missing from the resort. I wouldn't return or recommend to others unless they reconsidered their price structure especially for transport or got a hard surface road to the resort (how possible this is in a national park area is questionable), which is a shame because the staff and resort are good. However if you want to just enjoy the beach holiday, stay in the resort or want to go on organised trips it would be ideal. The good: The resort is lovely and well planned, clean and comfortable although it is eco-chic not super luxury. It's clean and staff are friendly. A/C, shower and WiFi worked well (except for needing to sign in often) and the bed is comfortable. Mosquito repellent oil diffuser in the rooms, nets on the doors and beds (essential given the jungle setting - bring DEET spray with you). Beautiful jungle around and wildlife. They say they employ 95% locals which is good to see, staff are lovely. English is hit and miss with some staff but they have the basics and are learning. We liked that they employ form the local area. Food was generally good in the resturant (didn't try Italian one) if repetitive eating in the same place every night. Complementary welcome cocktails were a nice touch and movie night on the beach was lovely. Complementary message was fab (30 min, make sure you book as soon as you arrive as they prioritise treatments for those paying). We would have upgraded but it was extremely expensive to. And outside the resort you can get an hour for 400 bhat. The bad: 1. Prices taking advantage of the isolation. Think European/Oz/NZ prices - I've made a list below as couldn't find much about their prices online and hope it's helpful to others although some may be out by a few bhat either way. 2. Location is very isolated. 3. Drinking water provision in plastic bottles (not eco). 1. I'd expect and accept 25-50% more than the local prices (it's a resort after all and everything has to be transported there and it's a resort) but everything is 100% more (double) than the outside rates. As a result the resort does feel a little like a golden cage. You can get out and about it if you're prepared to pay. See prices below. I really do think they need to consider their pricing structure as feeling taken as though you're being milked for as much as they can get isn't pleasant. That said it's expensive for Thailand but comparable to Europe/Oz/NZ prices. We would have done more activities if they were more reasonably priced. My other big issue was drinking water provision, they give 4 X 500ml bottle of water to each room per day. From an eco tourism perspective, reusable BPA free bottles to refill would be better. Something I was interested to know before I came were the various costs so I've listed them below (correct in November 2017). A chicken pad thai is 240 bhat, outside the resort it is 90-150. A pizza is 350 bhat (200 outside). Soft drinks 90-150 bhat (30-90 outside) Alcohol around 350 bhat for cocktails or wine. (they do 3x happy hours where cocktails for 150 bhat each & beers are 100 bhat each) 150 bhat for a beer (100 outside). Dinner buffet (generally good food) 750 bhat. We thought these prices were a bit expensive but largely OK given the resort location and we also stocked up on some things in phuket before arriving. Transport and activity costs however were too expensive for a location where it's impossible to get in or out without a scooter, 4x4 or boat. Or a long walk. 800 bhat for a 4x4 into the village (each way) along the dirt road unless you go on the 0930-1230 daily trip for 320 bhat per person. A boat is much more. We went to the village and got scooters (350bhat/day) the dirt road is something of a challenge on scooters - the resort discourages scooter hire for safety and I can see why - if dry it was fine even for me, with no scooter experience but it wasn't easy. If wet, it is profoundly slippery - take care. The dirt road is ok at night as well if dry. Given their location I feel that they should have a cheaper shuttle or going up and down to the nearest road or village. The hotel quoted 6000 bhat for a private boat transfer from phuket. We organised our own, for half the price from the pier on phuket (just turn up and ask the boat guys). Plus a short taxi transfer from phuket airport for 350 bhat. Alternatively they do twice daily group boat transfers for 1750 bhat per person at 1000 or 1500hrs. Or there's a ferry from phuket for 200 bhat each and then an 800 bhat 4x4 journey. Massages/facials are priced at around 1000-2000 bhat - the complementary 30min one was fab. Outside the hotel you can get an hour for 400 bhat. Activities are also priced about 1-2000 bhat more than those outside the hotel. All hotel prices add 10 % service and 7% tax. It's rare for me to be quite this critical, but at Â£200+/night in Thailand it should be better set up allowing guests freedom to explore. However I can off road scooter, a skill I didn't think I would gain on this trip!!! If you're after a beach week you'll probably love it.
Well I'll start with the long drive from the pier it will set you back 800 baht if you have not already organised with the resort. Once we arrived and got settled in we quickly forgot about the drive. The resort has everything you need and name of the hotel says it all 'Paradise'. A bit far out of the way but would still recommend.
"Relaxation at its finest!"
WOW! We had the best time at Paradise and were just blown away with how beautiful the place is. Having read some of the other reviews about prices and accessibility I would agree as it is quite expensive, however this is understandable given everything must be imported and the food was just sensational (big portions and was well worth the price). Staff were so friendly and generous - we got complimentary drinks on arrival, free cocktails, free massage and free yoga vouchers which meant we could still get a taste of things without blowing the bank. We loved yoga and the instructor was very calming and nice to us given we had zero experience with yoga before - would recommend highly! Staff at dinner were so professional and accommodating, similarly, at breakfast we were offered coffees and tea made fresh by a barrister. Getting there was somewhat difficult, however staff responded very quickly to our emails and were very helpful. We decided to make our own way there to save a bit of money but you can organise a transfer through the resort too (easier probably - but more $). The car ride from the pier is very bumpy but we enjoyed seeing the rubber farms and scenery along the way so would say very worthwhile. We stayed in the plunge pool room which was just heavenly - everything was so clean and there is an obvious emphasis on saving resources and being as green as possible which we really appreciated (although plastic bottles for drinking water). If you have some spare time/want to indulge, I would say Paradise Koh Yao Noi is the place for you!
