“wonderful place for rest and relax!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

stayed at Betterview for 4 days 3 nights. Firstly, you do not need credit card for check it. Our room was clean and comfortable however we had some problems with the aircon on the first night, but everything was fixed by the 2nd day. Thumbs up for the wonderful service. A small regret would be us not being able to use the jacuzzi in the room because the water seems alittle yellowish.

Apart from that, we still had 4 wonderful and relaxing days in KYY. highly recommend to rent the scooter for the day (300 baht) to explore the island and island hop over to Koh Yao Noi which once again, you are able to rent a scooter from the pier to the market area.

Wifi was fast and the staff were really friendly! high recommended resort to stay in if you are considering Koh Yao Yai!

If you seek some quite time to relax in a genuine Thai environment, then Ko Yao Yai is your island. Not much tourists stay on this island and that's what's making it a truly great place.
When it comes up to picking a hotel, Betterview Bed & Breakfast makes your dreams come true. Friendly staff, amazing bungalows (including jacuzzi and private terrace), clean pool, good food. If you want to explore the island, hire a bike or scooter. The staff is always happy to help you in pointing out the nice places.

We loved our 4 night stay at Betterview. The bungalows are spacious, clean and beautifully designed (we stayed in the seafront facing ones). The bathroom facilities are first class and the wifi is super fast. We also found the owner to be friendly, relaxed and helpful.
The pool is spotlessly clean and there is a jacuzzi.
Koh yao Yai is a beautiful and remote island, so there is not much to do, apart from relax, which was fine with us.

The only downside we found is that the beach is really not very nice. The water is muddy and not pleasant to swim in. The beaches on the other side of the island are better, although they still don't compare to Phi Phi or even Phuket.

We were here for 3 nights. At that moment there were some serious construction activities. Originally there were 5 bungalows, now they were consctructing some new ones (almost finished).This are of course not the best conditions to relax, but as we were most of the time on tour with our motorcycle it didn't bother us that much.
The setting is nice with lovely views over the bay. Beautiful bungalows with all the comfort , even more, then you need and a few choices for breakfast.
What does a person needs more ?

Room Tip: Don't worry if you don't have a jacuzzi in your room. The pool has 2.

We stayed at Betterview for 4 nights during a trip to Thailand and would highly recommend it. Our bungalow was lovely, great bathroom with large jacuzzi bath and plenty of space. We had a fantastic view of the pool and the sea. Koh Yao Yai is a very quiet island and some people were hiring mopeds to go exploring but we decided to just relax and spent our days by the pool and in the restaurant/bar. Food was excellent and very good value. The restaurant only accepts food orders until 8pm and drinks orders until 9pm, we didn’t find this to be a problem though – if we wanted any extra drinks after the bar closed we just bought a couple before 9pm that we could drink afterwards. Breakfast was included with the room and was very good – plenty of choice. We were very lucky with the weather when we were there as we only had a small amount of rain – however when it does rain it is nice to sit on the covered veranda outside the bungalow or in the restaurant.

The staff were all lovely and everywhere was kept very clean and tidy. Betterview is very easy to get to – from Phuket airport it is approximately 30 minutes in a taxi to Bang Rong Pier and then a 30 minute boat ride (if you get the speedboat – at some times of day it is a slower boat which takes an hour). It is then only 10 minutes in a taxi to Betterview from the pier on Koh Yao Yai. I personally would not go for longer than we did as it was such a quiet island so at the end of the stay we were looking forward to a bit of variety but for a few days it was a welcome contrast to some of the more busy places. If you are looking for somewhere to completely relax and enjoy great Thai food then this is the perfect place.

Room Tip: We went for a sea view room which had a fantastic view, however the ones without a sea view were onl...

The location is great with a view of the ocean from the window and the bungalow itself was very comfortable. The restaurant also has great views and nice food. It was almost perfect except for the construction noise which meant it was difficult to relax there during the daytime.

Definitely recommend hiring a scooter to explore the island, there are not many other visitors around so you almost have the roads to yourself!

This review is about the food as did not stay here.

The chicken wantons were especially good, light and tasty.

The food, drinks where all good at a good price.

Service was speedy and prompt. There is not a lot to do or places to visit so finding anywhere is good.
