Stayed here 5 nights. Very very good. No a/c - however the fan was enough. The first night was very hot - however first nights in Thailand always are!

Stayed in room 9 - the cottage numbers get bigger the further from the road. No road noise at all and I'd say only the first one or two would get it.

Super hard bed - however the norm for Thailand. Good mosquito nets.

Cheap at 700 baht a night or was it 900 - no more than that. Much cheaper for longer stays.

The food here is very good, cheap and downright yummy!! Not so everywhere and had heard that so ate most of our meals here. Very friendly staff too. Took way too long to order one night and the staff made a joke and put the pen and paper down and said when you're ready write it down. So I did - in thai ! and they marked it like a test. So funny. Took byo spirits one night - no problems. Looked perplexed when I asked for a sheet to sleep under ... and gave me another light blanket (which came on the bed - bottom sheet - light top banket !!) If I stayed here again I'd bring a sarong to sleep under or a sheet - just a personal preference and very thai not to...!

One night we had a semi-private fire show - to three couples! It was fantastic. Other traveler's were very nice on this island too. No extremes of people really. Considerate travelers.

You get woken up by the call to prayer in the morning and also with the roosters. Very nice tho when in holiday mode.

Many people hire scooters. Would be very safe to do so as there is one ring road around the island. I'm not a scooter rider and not about to start in Thailand. Would be handy to get to 'town' for something different.

Some things due to lack of competition are a little bit more expensive - like massages - 400baht an hour - however very good. Internet the same - but that is not what you're there for!!!

The beach is tidal.. We had morning swims and afternoon walks further around the corner, stopping off for drinks at the bars that were either pubs or coffee places.

On different days we went to 'fancier' resorts for their facilities. A cocktail or lunch bought us time at these places.

"Niramaya" has a great pool and was very empty so they were happy to have us there. I don't even think we needed to buy a drink - however we did.

"Evason Six Senses Spa" was an experience!! We went to the entrance and asked if we could eat lunch there. After a couple of walkie talkie back and forth checking us in, a buggy arrived and took as past all their organic gardens etc and when staff passed on the way they all wai'd us - even whilst driving buggies - too funny. LUNCH - so so yummy! As bizarre as it sounds - even the water. Reverse osmosis and then re-mineralised (bottomless for $3.50AU). We didn't have much to eat - however a chicken papaya salad, seafood spring rolls and khao soi noodles with beef (very tender) was worth it. The ambiance and view = to die for!!

The stroll back was lovely and passed a nice coffee shop on the way - lovely locals and proper ground coffee. Take your sunscreen for this!

No cold coconuts however once a shop that had hot ones realised I wanted them cold - they put 2 in the fridge for the next day - its that kind of place.

We also had a 'show' put on by the coconut monkey guy for Pasai's coconuts. They surrounded the property however those closer were kept bare by the monkey! Cool to watch - on a lead - twisting them and then throwing them down...not near us !

We did a day trip to the other islands and our longtail driver didn't speak english however he was great and picked us up off the beach infront of the cottages and made sure we kept away from the speedboats from Krabi and Phuket. Just what we wanted.

Anyway - lots of people stayed at this place and all were considerate to others. Thai's and travelers international. It's also frequented by Paddle Asia's guests which is how we got onto the place. See my review re this as we started our trip here with a day tour of the island. If you do stay on this island - a mountain bike trip on your first full day would be the best way to get a look at the place you're staying at! Khun Run - a guide and local to the Island was our most awesome host for that event.

You get a clean enough basic cottage - front porch with seating for two, a comfortable bed/mattress with mosquito net, a nice fan, and a very basic bathroom with a cool water shower.

Bring your own reading light if you want to read.

Food at the restaurant is OK but a coffee is 50 baht! That's too much.

No wifi but if you are here you probably want to disconnect anyway.

After the first day day at Bangkok we directly went to Koh Yao Noi. At the harbor in Pukhet a guy we met suggest us that nice cottages. When we arrive there we met the owner of this cottages. We learned he is managing this place with his girl and wife. İn a while we realy became as friends with the owner of this cottage. Bungalows were very nice. There were not A/C, or t.v but you really don't need it. There were two places at the front , the first one at the left was working as a lobby :) and a cafe for social activities.There was also a computer wich u can use internet if u need. The wife was cooking every foods at the menu , they were really delicious and she was making good fresh drinks for us. And the other place which is at the right side was both a place for dinner and then after a stage for musical activities. The daugther of the family is a thai dancer also and if u are lucy she is performing sometimes.One night also they arrange a seefood night for us with an fantastic price, and it was the night that i ate the best ocean seefoods :) We understand that the owner of the place likes playing music as a hobby and in the nights he is playing with other local musician friends and also there are some handmaden enstruments by him for u to join them and it s creating a good ambiance. Also the view and the beach were really really fantastic. I was hoping to find a quiet place , and thinking an hommack onto the sea with a nice white sanded beach with cocconut trees laying onto the sea at Thailand. And i found it at the second day at Koh yao. Also the owner is arranging long boats for u to have a trip to other wonderful islands, laguns, and beaches around Koh Yao. And also the our scooters has rented by him and we didn't strive with the little things like this. I stayed for a month at Thailand but the Koh Yao was an unforgettable memory for me with thanks to Pasai Cottage owner Family.

We stayed here for 2 nights with our tour group. The rooms are bungalow style. There is no A/C, hot water, or TV. Amazingly the room stayed cool with the fan provided. There are mosquito nets over the beds. At night you can hear the sounds of night birds and critters lurking in the dark. We were surprised one night by a large gecko (at least 12 inches long) in our room. Across the street is the beach. The island is very underdeveloped so if you're looking for the night scene or bars this isn't the place for you. This is also a muslim area so appropriate dress is required. There are also no ATMS so pull out cash before you leave the mainland. We took an island tour to see the fisherman villages and rubber plantation. There are pay internet sites in the "downtown" area. There is also a restaurant at the hotel. The food is good and there is a big assortment to choose from. Prices are decent and everything was good. The hotel staff were friendly and accommodating.
Just keep an open mind and remember that you're on a small island!
