This is our second visit to Paradise Koh Yao. If you want a holiday where you can just relax at the beach or pool, eat great food and generally slow down for a while this is your place. The staff are very friendly and the place is immaculately tidy and clean all the time. The rooms are all generally a similar configuration, with the differences being their location either being closer to the beach or up on the hill which means a bit of a walk but spectacular views. You would be happy with either. It just depends if you want extras like pools and spas. The power sockets are type B in the rooms however the TV is a Type A socket, so plan for that as well for streaming devices. The activities hut staff are very helpful and offer a range of snorkelling, diving and other excursions. the James Bond Island tour is worthwhile and the island hopping tour is a great way to do some snorkelling and see some great islands. They cater a great lunch, the chicken fried rice is fantastic. The food at the restaurant is a range of Thai and western food. The prices are middle of the range.We had breakfast from the buffet, shared something for lunch and then had a good evening meal. For 6 days with food, the Island hopping tour and a massage and a few drinks, we spent about $800AU. My wife had to get some medicine during our stay the village has a chemist that can provide anything you would need. We have made this our go to unwind destination now and will definitely be back again. Read less

This was our second stay at Paradise Koh Yao. Both times it was the sea front villa we stayed in - very cozy, with a beach just 10 steps away, yet very private.

This was our second stay at Paradise Koh Yao. Both times it was the sea front villa we stayed in - very cozy, with a beach just 10 steps away, yet very private. It was my birthday this time, and the resort staff welcomed and treated us with so much attention - as they always do. Amazing how it always feels so quiet and peaceful at Paradise comparing even to Phuket. Truly the place speaks for its name! We loved everything: the food, the activities, the atmosphere, and most importantly, the staff - fantastic people! We’ll be back! Read less

We stayed in this resot (2 couples) for 3 nights. Resort is on the bigger islan Koh Yao Noi but is totally isolated from other parts of island - so it means you have your own space, not so many people, privacy, private beaches... if you want to go somewhere else to the island there is the closest village 7km away (and jungle everywhere, but… Read more
We stayed in this resot (2 couples) for 3 nights. Resort is on the bigger islan Koh Yao Noi but is totally isolated from other parts of island - so it means you have your own space, not so many people, privacy, private beaches... if you want to go somewhere else to the island there is the closest village 7km away (and jungle everywhere, but perfectly nice). On the other hand because of this isolation, there is no public shop where you could buy water/food/etc. cheaper than in resort shop. Resort is really expensive when it comes to wellness, suncream, alcohol, but also a food (everywhere you must pay 10% + 7% taxes more). Even when you want to book ferry back to Phuket/Krabi it is really expensive around 2800thb/person. So we found a local woman and we made a deal and she took us there an also back (app 400thb/person) - dont worry on your way from Phuket/Krabi there is a looot of local people who will offer their services :) In general staying in this resort was perfect! People where really nice and they were trying to help you with everything. Rooms were perfectly clean an the view from the room was incredible!!!! Manager in restaurant made for us special meal based on our request so really big THANK YOU! We have only really bad experience - !!!! Someone stole our money from the room but staff or resort did not find any offender!!!! I would expect some favor from hotel, maybe free dinner or something but nothing. This was little bit unpleasant. So please PUT ALL YOUR MONEY TO SAFE!!!!!! But deffinitely GO TO THIS RESORT😍I would come back. And try thai mix starters in restaurant :)) Read less

Needed to get away from the crowds in Thailand so my wife and I booked a couple nights here. It is literally one of the most beautiful secluded beaches you can hope for. With the pool being right on the beach and two great restaurant you could not ask for more. Aside from amazing hotel and breathtaking beach/views, the staff was the best part. Krating is so thoughtful and generous and helped us out with so many things. He would search things for us and then walk to our spot on the beach and relay what he found out. Tina at the front desk was also really amazing and very VERY accommodating, thank you so much! Couldn’t have asked for a better staff, from the housekeepers, to bell staff, to cooks, wait staff, etc. highly recommend this secluded gem. Read less
