I just came back from Koh Yao Yai Village last week Nov 10,2013. I really love everything here. the bungalow was superb very clean and comfy. we had 3 meals a day at their restaurant. the food was great especially the beef bacon from the breakfast bar. the seafood at the Krachang restaurant was very fresh and tasty. the staffs are very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to everyone who want to have a peaceful relaxing holiday.

We highly recommend it! If you and your partner both looking for a island trip / life then you should definitely go to Koh Yao Yai Village! We stayed there for 7 days. You will never get bored there seriously, as there's an Activity Center, over 10 tours that you can reserve! We reserved 4 tours in total - Island Exploring, Sunset Cruise, Village Tour and Canal boat. Room are amazingly great! We stayed at Seaview Bungalow, what we loved most? Its outdoor rain shower for sure....a best resort for city people for relaxing....For dining part - great great great. We had breakfast, dinner at same restaurant during the trip, there are lots of choices like pizza, pasta, burger, salad and Thai food! At first, we were bit worried about the dining, because the resort is far away from Phuket City and the last ferry is 5pm...don't worry about it. We are not the only couple dining in this way - every guests who stayed there are dining in this way too :)
I know some of the guests might consider about the security, VERY SAFE we can say! There's a security station at the entrance. Excellent service, friendly staff! Please stay at Koh Yao Yai Village. You will feel like you are a VIP....enjoy!

P.S...one thing should be worried is WEATHER! It rains a lot during Nov...

Best place to stay, you can see the beautiful view of beach from swimming pool. nice bungalow, even it's quite far from beach, but it's not important. Friendly staffs, after I got bad experience from the staffs of 5 stars hotel in phuket beach before, I never believe in the standard of luxury hotel, but not for Koh Yao Yai village because of all staff here kindly to help you in everything and everyt times also. Next time, I still choose you Koh Yao Yai village.

Lovely hotel, pretty basic when compared to other resorts, but the location and local areas make up for any short comings. The rooms are big and the beach villas have private terraces to the front over looking the sea. The view of the islands is wonderful.
Go out and explore the island and eat the local food, you will not go hungry and you won't eat as well for the money anywhere else.

We were there for our honeymoon. Simply amazing in every way. The beach is not a beach where you swim. The pool is nice, the breakfast gets dull after 7 days, the dinners are so much better at the hotel next door, and the service can get annoying as they do not understand the concept of nice service at the front desk. They work a bit like robots, do what your told and follow management orders.

Other than that, the setting is amazing, great place, nice bongalows, and the beds are good. Do not get carried away by the upgrade with seaview stuff. Your much better off in the jungle bungalows. I will one day return to this place. Highly recommended :)

Room Tip: Do not get carried away with the bigger rooms unless you are with kids!

Relax! That is THE word to describe our stay at the Koh Yao Yai village! Outstanding staff, the most friendly staff we've ever met on holiday. Food in the restaurant is good. Prices are European standard ( if you want t eat "cheap" there are little restaurants near the road) If you want an active holiday, with lots of things to do, this is not your ideal destination ... this is a very small island, so perfect to relax. We loved it there ... we had a very buisy scedule the first part of our holiday when we travelled around Thailand ... so to end our holiday in this little piece of heaven was just PeRfEcT ! Transfer with the hotel = perfect Breakfast also very nice ... from 6.00 till 10.30 !!

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you very much for your great review!
Every review just confirms that we do have a fantastic team!

We are always glad to hear about your comments and suggestions. Our locations provides us with a very special tranquility, but which also means that we need to transport a lot of produce from Phuket island, as you can imagine this is involved with some costs. Thats why we are able to keep such an extensive menu in the restaurants with items not available on the island. Thank you very much for your valued suggestions as we are always looking to improve.

Warm regards
Jason

Once you arrive at this hotel,it feels like you're a VIP! Whaauw what a welcoming! Villas are spacious,and offer a lot of comfort in a quiet surrounding. I certainly recommend the villa with sea view!

Breakfast was very good, but we've just missed a slice of cheese.

Room Tip: Villa with sea view!!
