Insider's View

Waking up in my pool villa to the breathtaking views onto Phang Nga Bay was truly amazing and something I will treasure for the rest of my life.

You have to try their delicious home-made ice-creams - there are over 20 different flavors. It was the tastiest ice-cream I have ever had!

My bed at Yao Noi was the most comfortable I have ever slept in, and of course waking up to the incredible views of Phang Nga bay through the floor to ceiling windows was an incredible start to my day!

Take a longtail boat out and explore the waters of Phang Nga Bay and the surrounding islands.

Wake up for sunrise and go for a swim at The Hilltop Reserve to enjoy the best views in the whole resort

Keep your curtains open at night so you can watch the changing light of the sky at sea overnight.

Book their Yogi Dorelal for a private session of yoga on your Villa Sala and in an hour he will change your life.

Breakfast - organic Six Senses Yao Noi bircher muesli, black sesame milk and coconut sugar - mix all these together to start the day!

I would recommend taking a bike out to explore the island. The roads are quite steep but the downhills are satisfying.

Make sure you cycle round Yao Noi island for a piece of local Thai life, passing by fisherman's villages, local markets, and witnessing the everyday lifestyles

Your room is supplied with a basket which you can use to visit the organic farm to collect eggs from the free range chickens, which enjoy listening to jazz music!

Six senses Yao Noi has a true focus on farm to table. So much so you can collect eggs from the chickens raised on the property to breakfast the next morning

The area is famed for its natural beauty, especially its limestone island mountains in the sea which provide idyllic views from the resort and some great excursions for those wanting to explore the area by land or by sea.

The natural vegetation and tropical landscaping provides privacy between the 56 villas which have been designed with a modern, elegant architectural style and are very spacious, each with their own private infinity edge pool with large sundeck, open-air bathrooms and personal villa team trained to anticipate every whim. The Ocean Villas allow glorious views over the bay and the Garden Villas are set in a lush tropical forest. The larger Retreat Villa and the Hilltop Reserve are exclusively positioned for the most incredible views.

The design of Six Senses Yao Noi is in line with the Six Senses ethos of using natural materials and innovation to create luxurious accommodation and attention to detail. All of the resort's dining and entertainment activities take place at The Main House, giving the resort a plantation style feel. There is a choice of restaurants and bars as well as a well stocked wine cellar. Italian cuisine is served at the Dining Room which has a glass floor with river flowing beneath it and at The Living Room, Thai cuisine can be enjoyed as well as offerings from the grill, tandoori and pizza ovens. The cooking school can teach you some of these fabulous dishes so that you can take your culinary memories home with you.

The Six Senses Spa has been sympathetically designed in the style of a Thai longhouse with several separate treatment salas and a gym. Here the skilled therapists can a whole range of holistic pampering treatments made from entirely natural products. Yoga, Qi gong and personal fitness training are also available.

The waters in this area are pristine, and excursions can be arranged to nearby islands for exploration, snorkeling or diving. Complimentary bikes are available for guests to cycle to local villages and picnic spots and this is such an undeveloped island, it is definitely worth the journey.

The Six Senses was amazing! Feel like I only want to stay at Six Senses from now on! Loved the rooms, and think everyone should upgrade to the Beachfront Villas as we loved being able to just walk right out onto the beach. Plus, the views were the most incredible. We have stayed in some really amazing hotels and hotel rooms, but my husband and I both agreed that this was likely the best hotel we've ever stayed at. Just fabulous

We did a movie night on the beach - playing James Bond Goldeneye. We were served a 3-course dinner on the beach for the movie and had themed martinis - so cute and fun! We also did a tuk tuk tour around the island and went to see the fishing villages and fisheries, the paddy fields, and the main town/village. The guide was great and the tour was actually very interesting and fun to get outside the hotel for a bit. 

Our GEM was incredible and really helpful. Nothing we could fault! We were worried about the super early morning transfer to catch our flight, but actually because of the time, we had the boat transfer at sunrise and it was the most beautiful scenery we could imagine. So actually loved the early morning transfer and would recommend it!  

Overall it was our favorite hotel and nothing that we could fault. Loved it!

Home to some of the most awe inspiring views of the karst island studded ocean in all of Thailand, the Six Senses Yao Noi is truly paradise on earth.  One can hardly tear themselves away from the impossibly gorgeous views from their bespoke villas, but an abundance of opportunities for fun and relaxation await those who do!  With opportunities for world class dining and massage, small, private and luxurious beaches, and ample surrounding islands to explore, one can't run out of plans unless they want to.  Extensive children's activities and a beachside club means there's fun to be had for the whole family.  With the expected eye towards sustainability and community enrichment that is a hallmark of the brand, the Six Senses Yao Noi shines as an ultimate dream destination.

How do you put Paradise into words? Whisked off their private boat having skimmed past emerald green islands I was led to my Villa by Pop my private Butler. Panoramic Pool Villa became Palace as I was ushered into the most exquisite villa with a pool and Sala overlooking a bay of islands so dramatic and beautiful that I thought I was on the set of James Bond. Views in every direction were amazing, the infinity pool merged with the horizon and between the beautifully decorated teak villa and the surrounding flowers and foliage, I knew I had died and gone to Heaven. And that was before the massage in this Six Senses Spa, before the dinner prepared with delicacies from their organic gardens, before the cocktails at The Hilltop which has views you can only dream of and before the hour spent on my private deck with their Yoga Guru - Dorelal Singh - then I knew I had left Earth forever......Six Senses Yao Noi is perfection.

Six Senses Yao Noi wont disappoint, from the moment you step on their speedboat at the pier to watching sunrise from the Hilltop Retreat to enjoying their refreshing home-made ice cream you will remember every moment. If your budget permits, stay here as it really is a special experience and you will find it hard to fault. You will never tire of the views of the limestone rocks and islands jutting out of the ocean, the delicious breakfasts with an array of juices and pastries, the wonderfully rustic villas and of course the seamless service.

Everything at Six Senses Yao Noi is so beautifully laid out and every little detail is carefully planned giving an experience which is truly magical. From arriving on the dock by speedboat and being met by a buggy with our names already written on little chalk boards attached to having homemade ice-cream on tap throughout the day you feel completely pampered in a very laid back understated way. It really is the attention to the tiniest of details that sets the hotel apart and of course the views over the limestone pillars floating in the sea beyond are just incredible. The only downside is that you ever has to leave!

From the moment I stepped onto the speed boat to get to the island, I knew my time here was going to be very special. The staff are on hand from the word go to make your stay relaxed and stress free and it is undoubtedly one of my absolutely favorite resorts. Its location on the unspoiled island of Yao Noi is breath-taking, boasting panoramic views of the limestone islands of Phang Nga Bay. It is very difficult to drag yourself away from the unbelievable views from the main pool. I was always first in line to get on that sunbed! To unwind on arrival you can enjoy some serious pampering at the spa village, set in the lush hillside forest. The food does definitely not disappoint, with a well-respected team of chefs producing some superb dishes. This is definitely top of my list of places to return to.

Evi-Elli La Valle (Staff)

What I love about Yao Noi is that you are only 45mins from Phuket by speedboat, yet the tiny island feels so exclusive and remote. This is the ideal place to relax in peaceful surroundings and most guests barely leave their pool villas. This is not surprising as the villas are vast, so private with lots of little areas where you can while away your days reading a good book or simply admiring the stunning views. With no main pool on the island and only a small beach, Six Senses Yao Noi is not for everyone but for those looking for a really special pool villa vacation, this is the perfect place.
