A dream!
Comfortable, luxury, really quiet resort.
It's brand new so everything looks very nice.

There are only 5 bungalows but there were planning to build another 5 bungalows.
We've stayed at the tropical and sea view cottage and it looks just like the pictures they present on there website.
The cleaning was really good and the staff was really helpful.
You get fresh water bottles every day.
On every window you have mosquitoscreens.
There is a sofa bed in the room were even an adult could sleep on.

We found the tropical bungalow more practical and more beautiful then the seaview room. The seaview room is typical for wedding couples.
The only difference between the cottages is that the seaview has an outdoor shower.

The pool is split up with undeap area and bubble baths.

The food was really good, the best dishes we have eaten on our vacation!
And it wasn't expensive, a singha for 65 bath and dishes between 150-200 bath.
For breakfast you could choose between a lot of stuff but no thai dishes. There were pancakes, cereals, toast, eggs,...

The resort is next to the Thiwson Resort.
You don't have anything else in the neighborhood.

If you want to relax and do nothing, this is the place to go!
I never go back to the same place but if I can in the future, I definitely will come back!

We've stayed for 1 week with a 4 year old and it was perfect, our most relaxing place on our trip.

Had a amazing 3 days 2 nights at the hotel. The hotel manager Onn was waiting for us at the pier. It takes 15 mins from the pier to the hotel. The locals doesn't speak English well so I'll recommend to arrange for hotel to pick you up instead of flagging a taxi when you arrive. Taxis on the island has no marking to being with!

Upon arrival, the hotel sign is well decorated and the reception is also the restaurant. Checking in was a breeze and they don't require a credit card like other hotels do.

Rooms are either small bungalow with or without a Jacuzzi. My room has a Jacuzzi that fits for two adults. Room is spacious and choice of mattress and pillows are AMAZING.

Each room has a OPEN air shower and hot shower is available. The swimming pool is of a medium size and it is located right in front of the rooms with panaromic sea view. There is jacuzzi on the pool as well.

There is also free WiFi throughout the hotel and LCD TV with 200++ channels in the room.

There are not many restaurants on the island so food is limited to those catered by the hotels. Prices are on par with prices along Patong beach from 100 Baht onward per dish. Beer is available at 60 Baht per bottle.

Adventurous travelers can rent a bike for 350 Baht per day or 200 Baht for half a day. The island is about 25km from north to south.

There are a whole LOT of mosquitoes and bugs on the island. The hotel provides insect repellent in the room. Remember to apply them generously before going out in the evening.

Other charges not related to the room will be 200 Baht per pax for a speed boat trip from Bang Rong Pier and 200 Baht for 2 pax transfer from pier to the hotel and vice versa.

Room Tip: Room 101 has a better sea view compared to Room 102 as there is a huge tree blocking it.

Located on Yao Yai island (30 min on a speed boat from Phuket), this small hotel (5 bungalows) enjoys a really nice view on the sea and opposite island rocks. The hotel is new, since all installations look nice and confortable. The beach is however two steps below and water unfortunately not that transparent and hot.
Service is good but sometines slow.
Having dinner under the trees is nice, but pay the attention to the mosquitos !
Recommended for young couples looking for its calm and intimacy (nothing to do in the neighborhood)

Room Tip: Take the sea view bungalow the closest to the beach, enjoying the view !

We stayed in this hotel 2 days and 1 night and we liked every single thing about it. The place is brand new and so super clean. Bungalows are comfortable, spacious, beautiful with AMAZING bathroom and shower, the bungalow terrace was so cozy that we could spend a lifetime chilling there. Beach is not sandy but perfectly ok for sun bathing and swimming. The sea had some massives tides, was very interesting to observe. Hotel manager, cleaning guys and chef were all very welcoming, sweet and helpful. Food was delicious, breakfast very generous. We truly felt that we were taken care of. There are only 5 bungalows in the hotel, when we were there only 3 were occupied by couples. Thus the whole ambiance was very calm and peaceful. There's not much to do on the island and in the hotel, but if you want some relax, escape and unity with nature, the Better view bungalows is the right choice. I would go back there with greatest pleasure.

We spent four nights at the Betterview on Koh Yao Yai, before traveling across to Koh Yao Noi. Betterview is great value, "On" the Manager is great and will organise anything that you require, the staff can't do enough for you. The bungalows are lovely Thai style. Great bed and pillows. The resort only opened in December so everything is pristine. We picked Betterview after driving around the island looking at a few options because of the lovely lush gardens, good price and also the fact it was new. We hired a motor bike for the whole time which we did through the hotel at a very reasonable price. Dining options on the island are fairly limited we actually ate in every night. One night we ordered a whole fish and crabs they were so yummy especially after we explained we would like the crab cleaned... Breakfast is fairly bland but this may also be because the hotel is quite new. Rooms cleaned to a high standard everyday. Pool area is beautifully maintained. If you want a spa, activity centre etc this isn't the place for you but if you want a lovely bungalow on a remote island it is.

Room Tip: We had bungalow 105 closest to the driveway, Panorama bungalow closest to the beach and slightly lar...

Teetering on the edge of luxury, although not quite there...yet, Better View is the truthful name given to this pretty Thai hideaway. Having only five residences means the resort is tranquil, quiet and private. The bungalows are gorgeous rattan and wood on the outside and chic, air-conditioned elegance inside. A jacuzzi bath and stylish decor feature in the spacious bathroom. The pristinely maintained infinity pool, with a large shallow area suitable for young children, adds a focal point to the well-maintained gardens. Beware sea-swimmers and beach-combers – the shell-covered rocks beyond the sea wall are sharp underfoot. On the menu are some classic Thai dishes, with modifications for vegetarians if you ask. Breakfast is less competent with the set menu revealing a move towards the Western, with still a few miles to go. Coffee snobs will be disappointed with Nescafe in their coffee pots. This can be excused, however, when you meet the wonderfully moustachioed chef, who (I'm convinced) even has the Gallic shrug...
