Paradise @ Koh Yao
Een mooi, klein en sfeervol eersteklasse resort direct aan het strand aan de oostkust van Koh Yao Noi. Het idyllische, onbedorven plekje is slechts over water te bereiken; een prachtige boottocht in een decor van fotogenieke, steil uit het water oprijzende rotsformaties. De aankomst is al ideaal voor het echte ‘bounty gevoel’. Paradise @ Koh Yao is een intiem resort waar u zich snel thuis waant.
Over Paradise @ Koh Yao
The Paradise Koh Yao doet zijn naam eer aan. Het ligt aan een 400 meter lang privé-strand en wordt begrensd door hoog oprijzende kalkstenen rotsen en jungle; het uitzicht is werkelijk fantastisch. Voor een nadere verkenning van de omgeving kunt u meegaan met een georganiseerde (boot)excursie, jungle- of mountainbiketocht of op eigen gelegenheid het eiland en de schitterende baai verkennen. Mocht u zich liever geheel willen ontspannen dan kunt u gebruik maken van de mooie spa met zijn uitgebreid wellness aanbod, waaronder een kruidensauna en Thaise massages. De inwendige mens zal niets tekort komen; het resort heeft een visrestaurant waar u heerlijk met de voetjes in het zand uw seafood kunt bestellen. Bij de informele Sunset bar kunt u genieten van lekkere snacks, Thaise Mekong whisky, tropische cocktails en wederom een prachtig vergezicht over de baai. Bij het witte strand bevindt zich het mooie freeform-zwembad. Het resort telt in totaal 70 in Thaise stijl ingerichte kamers, grote Superior Studio’s of de nog ruimere Jacuzzi Studio’s, die allemaal beschikken over een Sala Thai (een Thais terras). Hoe paradijselijk wilt u het hebben?
Honeymooners kunnen een extra paradijselijk verblijf verwachten. Vraagt u ons naar de mogelijkheden.

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.
"Beautiful and secluded"
We stayed as a family on Paradise Koh Yao. The resort was located in beautiful and secluded surroundings. We arrived by boat, and seeing the dirt road behind the hotel, we definitely don't regret spending more on the boat transfer. The beach wasn't the white sandy bounty beach with blue water we were hoping for, but the pool somewhat made up for it, being nice spacious and clean. The rooms were the smallest we experienced in our travels, very humid and there were bugs, also we didn't have much of a view and it was difficult to get enough hot water to fill the Jacuzzi. They were nice and clean though. We were generally satisfied by the food and drinks served at the restaurant and bar, but I have to say that it was a bit too pricy. I realize that having to transfer everything to the hotel by boat and dirt road accounts for some markup, having said that, this is not the only secluded luxury resort we have visited on this trip to Thailand, and the markup has been turned up and extra notch which I don't feel can be completely justified. On the other hand, the rooms for a 4 star resort are pretty affordable, and we got a good bonus deal on extra nights. Naturally the room prices need to be low in a competitive market when people compare resorts on hotels.com and other booking sites, and this has to be somewhat offset in the prices of food and drinks, it just feels like.... cheating on the scales a little. Though the food was good, we have to say that the service, especially at the beach bar, lacked. Several days in a row we waited for allmost an hour for an order of fries, drinks were mistakenly put on our bill and a pizza was lost in translation. The staff was friendly and helpful, but their English was basic at best. After a while we had identified the good English speakers in the staff, which made things easier. We went on a snorkling trip and a trip to the local village while we were there. Other trips seemed a bit too expensive and there wasn't much else to do on the island (you could draw a drawing for 260 THB with tax and service charge included of course), but there were also free activities like ping-pong and badminton. All things considered Paradise Koh Yao is definitely worth a visit, especially for couples I can certainly see the appeal. We were a family of 5, staying 7 nights, which was definitely too much. For a family, I would recommend a shorter stay, and stock up on chips and soda in the local 7-eleven before you set off for the Resort.
"Worth a visit"
We have a deluxe spa room which was down the end of resort & not too high It was huge & lovely apartment style Being rainy season it rained a lot with a few leaks but the excessiveness & view it was something Staff are lovely but cant always understand you & not so good at communicating Our room cleaner very good only came anytime from 9am through to 4pm We had no turndown service as was after 9pm Food yes is expensive especially when include vat 7% & service fee 10% but we never had a bad meal mostly tasty Breakfast is different each day some days better than others The free excursion we were told cant see any fish so didn't go then told by some that went did see some? We did the village very worthwhile & went kayaking Stay around 4 nights is enough
"An expensive honeymoon"
If you are willing to pay through the nose, you will have a great time. Everything has a price. The local staff however are lovely and only too willing to help. If you are going to koh yao, we would recommend calling into a 7/11 beforehand to stock up on drinks and snacks. 100 baht plus tax and service charge is a bit steep. The resort and our room was nice, but failed to deliver on the advertised bottle of wine and 20% off spa treatments for honeymooners. further we were unable to fill our spa without running out of hot water. The daily housekeeping didnt occur until around 3-4pm for our room 414, way too late for our liking. Further we missed our snorkelling trip as the resort overbooked and pushed us to the following day, the next day was cancelled due to weather and we then were due to leave. A bit disappointing.
Spent nine of the most relaxed days of my life here. Absolutely perfect for laid back people who want to laze around in a beautiful setting. The grounds are lush and tropical like you're in the middle of a very well cared for jungle. At night you can hear the hornbills honking and the wildlife thriving. Our room was large and clean with a wonderful ocean view and felt incredibly private -- as in any hotel, you're surrounded by other rooms, but you'll never know it once you're inside. We had a second floor room high up on the hill and I absolutely recommend trying to get one if you visit! The staff were very friendly and helpful. I have seen some other reviews complaining that many of the staff don't speak English but personally we didn't find the language barrier to be a problem at all. Many of the staff are island locals and it's great that the resort provides employment for the local economy. Though some of the staff do not have extensive hospitality training I think that would only bother you if you're a high maintenance traveller. We visited in the rainy season and before we left loads of people told us that was a mistake, but they were wrong. Most days you only get an hour or two of heavy rain and the rest of the day is spectacular. When it does rain heavily for a long time it's a perfect excuse to curl up on your balcony with a book and listen to the thunder in the distance. The rainy season also meant that the resort wasn't as busy as it might have been otherwise. Perfect. Highly recommended! Wish I could go back there already.
"Low-Season Was The High-Point of Our Holiday"
We had a jacuzzi room on the top floor near the back of the resort. It was low-season when we travelled in Sep. 2016, so understandably quiet but this did not affect the attention the staff gave us, quality of the activities at the resort, or the quality of the food. Other guests are not the usual 'Bali crowd', and you won't be getting annoyed at anyone being overly loud, obnoxious, drunk, or aggressive here. So that was a big plus from me, as it's often not the case whenever you're travelling around Asia. Comparing the prices here and Australia, things are cheaper but only by around 15-55% depending on what you're buying at the resort. Drinks lie around $3.50-$12AUD for a beer or a cocktail respectively. Food is about 35-55% cheaper than in an equivalent restaurant in Australia e.g. main meal is around $7.50-$30+ depending on your order. Take note that the food is great here, so I'm not complaining at all. This resort is not for people who want 5-star services like those offered in capital cities and the sights and scenes that come with this. Nor is it for people looking for an authentic Thai cultural experience. It is in a secluded section of Koh Yao Noi, with not much else on the island except for the local town, the beauty of nature around you, and your thoughts. So, for those looking for a great, relaxing resort experience in tropical paradise, this will be right up your alley. If you've seen Thailand already, or are coming here before or after the rest of a trip, or even just not interested in the Thai cultural scene, then you'll be pleased as punch to relax, read a book, have a drink, and just enjoy the serenity. If you're considering going in low-season, I would jump at the chance. The resort is basically yours to roam and the weather was fine; rain maybe once every other day, usually in the early afternoon, but sunny before and after. I was worried the rain would be quite torrential, day-long, and powerful before bookingâ€”I'm glad to say they were nothing like it. We often had a nap after lunch, or just went in the pool during the (very) light rain and swam around for 10 minutes as it cleared up, so it wasn't an issue in the slightest. By the end of our stay, we had met many other guests and the staff were great, learning our names and indulging us in some banter during meals, alongside teaching us some common Thai words and phrases. The manager is incredibly friendly and we had lots of great chats with him and all the other staff. The rooms were excellent, with turndown service twice daily it seemed (morning and afternoon). The A/C worked fine and you wouldn't have known it was humid outside at all. Sleeping at night is an absolute pleasure with the A/C and a fan blowing on you. Thick sliding glass doors that blocked out all sound made it seem like we were the only living things in a mile. The food on offer here is excellent, and we never had a bad meal during our stay of 8-nights. We're vegetarian and pescetarian, so were worried about the range of food that we could eatâ€”this proved to be silly, as they had a massive vegetarian section and were more than happy to oblige changes to meals at our request. They had nice buffet breakfasts in the morning and loaded the restaurant with fresh local fruits, baked goods, jams and spreads, had an omelette station, and had plenty of different hot offerings; we always left having eaten too much because it was all so delicious. From the resort, you're able to book lots of different activities from the activities centre like snorkelling, kayaking, trips to the local village and the mainland. We did pretty much everything but the bike riding as we didn't have enough time and found it well-run, safe, and most importantly, fun! I would definitely recommend going to the local village, getting a scooter for the day and going exploring. All-in-all, we were very happy with our stay here as we've been to Thailand already and have done the usual sightsâ€”this was more of a pamper and relax trip. If you haven't seen Thailand before, you're going to get itchy feet and will end up hating the place because you'll want to be looking at all the temples and doing all the activities on the other islands.
