Reviewed 2 May 2010

I always stay at this lovely resort - it has everything you could ask for at a good price.Yanui Resort is a small hotel with surroundings that are very lush with beautiful trees and plants. The rooms are much bigger than most hotel rooms - more like an apartment - with A/C, cable TV, small kitchenette, fridge, most rooms have nice balconies, swimming pool and daily cleaners. Every room and the lovely restaurant has wireless internet access (no extra charge for this) which is very important to me.

The staff is friendly, competent and helpful. The restaurant has excellent Thai and European food (great steaks!) and there is a big screen TV in the restaurant which you can have turned off if you wish. The seafront at Rawai is only five minutes by motorbike. Nai Harn Beach is 10 minutes away by motorbike - one of the prettiest beaches I have ever seen. Patong is 30 minutes away by motorbike and there are plenty of restaurants and shops within 10 minutes of the resort.

They rent motorbikes and cars at a fair price. Pick up from the airport is also available. The Swiss manager is very helpful and his English is excellent. I come back here again and again for its quiet atmosphere and that home-away-from-home feeling.

This is a small resort with a nice pool in lush surroundings. The people who run the place are extremely helpful and nice. It has a small restaurant with a laid back welcoming feel and a good menu. The rooms are more like apartments and have good facilities for the price. I think most have balconies. It's not right in the main part of Rawai and not on the beach - but its only a few minutes by taxi - or better yet, scooter. I would definately recommend Ya Nui Resort for a quiet, great value stay in Rawai.

Having read the reviews there is a little confusion. There are 3 Ya Nui Paradise Beach resorts 1,2 and 3. I stay at the second one on the beach road. Number 1 is close by and 3 is in the mountains near Chalong. They were all built by the same chap.

As always Ya Nui 2 was peaceful and relaxing, clean and well equipped - they do all seem to be slightly different, so what you see in the photos that I've posted may not be what you get - but they all seem nice.

Car hire available and although not vital, a car is nice for part of the holiday. Apartments are in easy reach of amenities and there are a few more restaurants within walking distance than there used to be.

It is important to realise that there are two Ya nui resorts. From the photos it would appear that these reviews are of Ya Nui # 2 which is situated on the beach road. However the (original?) Ya nui resort is located on the backroad running parallel to the beach road. The #2 resort is an aprtment complex and doesn't offer breakfast whereas the YaNui#1 has a range of studios and apartments, has a bar\restaurant and includes a great breakfast in the room price.
The apartments are large and spacious, around a decent swimming pool and about 15 minutes walk to the beach. Ya Nui is a beautiful, peacful spot with just a couple of shops and restaurants at the crossroads. The seafront at Rawai is about half an hours walk or five minutes by motorcycle. Here there are plenty of restauarnats and bars but it still has a pretty layed back. genuine fell. nothing like Karon or Patong.
The manager is swiss, speaks good english and is very helpful. they have both cars and motorcycles to hire.

It was wonderful, lovely complex only minutes from the small beach of Ya~nui and the fishing port of Rawai.

The apartments are big with all mod cons and daily cleaners, large pool and so very quiet...a very relaxing place to stay. Rawai has plenty of eateries but the main resorts are only a short drive not that I wanted to leave the area.

Will return this year with family for christmas holidays.

Great new apartment complex 5 minutes from Rawai, 5 mins Ya Nui which is a great spot for snokelling . Quiet, but not remote, Rawai and nearby Nai Harn has excellent fish restuarants. Taxis , tours and boat trips to Phi Phi, Racha and Coral islands available from Rawai Beach.
The studios (with big bed not sofa bed) and 1 bedroom apartments are well equiped with Tv, DVD,aircon and a kitchenette, patio or balcony, great pool with jacuzzi. Quiet location, but close to local shops, internet and restuarants.
Daily maid and thai massage on site. Scooters and Car rental.
Great prices £100 per week high season for a studio
The office is British / German run
