I've taken a week to review Paradise Koh Yao, We had to remind ourselves not to have our expectations too high. We were welcomed well by Tina and going to our Jacuzzi Room, it was just too far to walk in the hot humidity with a recent knee op. We were told that we could call for a Golf Cart to collect and return, but knew that we would spend so much time waiting for this service as the Staff are always working very hard. We were pleased to move to a standard room and to be Honest the room felt more open and yes at times did make use of the Golf Buggy. We were also pleased to see that the Managers had stopped the Elephant Tours as we went last time, felt a real sense that we were providing the ability of abuse toward these Grand creatures. We bought a package deal and the value was excellent, but to be mindful that you will need to allow a good amount of spending money for your stay, some people chose to have a large breakfast and pass lunch so save money. Our view was to enjoy the setting of lunch of the beach front Restaurant and know that we were supporting the Local Village families with our contribution. meals were reasonably priced. Some changes that we noticed that we had filtered bottled water in our rooms in recycled glass bottles rather than the one use plastic's the Management was trying to be more ecco friendly. We were served the same water in the restaurant. But a little disappointed to see a contradiction of this with the Staff having their own meals and using sealed plastic bottled water for themselves. The pool needs some upgrading with the spa no longer working and the tattered beach Umbrella's needing to be replaced. There are pool lounges but other holiday makers need to be mindful to remove their belongings, when not using the area at all. This was quiet selfish. I think the DVD selection and quality of pirated DVD's could do with a massive upgrade, for a 4 star Hotel not a great example. The staff were very friendly. My Husband and I would personally like to express the quality of service from Tik serving in the Restaurant and Tina in reception for the high quality service they provided. We were glad to have a late check out especially with the Hot humidity and the fact we were travelling back to Melbourne Australia with a 10.30pm flight. It was a very long day and evening being delivered to the Phuket Airport and having to wait over 3 hours to just check in and then wait another several more hours to actually board, being a package deal with accommodation the night of arriving pre Island, it would be great if the travel agents could work something else at the other end of the holiday. I understand with the tides leaving the Island is difficult and all the flights out seem to be late. All in all we enjoyed our stay. We wish all the future guests a relaxing stay and thank the Paradise Koh Yao for having us a second time. P.S Take plenty of Mozzie protection especially in the wet season. Read less

Just returned from a trip to Paradise and we were so sad to leave. What an amazing beach setting, with a dreamlike island vista and a wonderful peaceful vibe . A real commitment to preserving the beautiful surrounding environment as evidenced by the abundance of nature around the hotel. Delicious food, lovely staff, unforgettable place.

This island is between Krabi and Phuket and is only reached by boat.it is in the most perfect setting with lovely scenery great beach, unusual shaped rocks out to sea and green jungle behind). The staff are all very welcoming and helpful, the accommodation is lovely with everything you may need. As expected, this is not a place with constant a activities but would highly recommend a massage in the beautiful jungle-themed spa and a yoga session on the beach should not be missed. Other guests said they loved the kayaking, the boat trips and the Thai cooking class. The restaurant has a wide and varied menu to suit all tastes, the breakfast is plentiful with a wide choice of food. The beach bar with beanbag seating and candles is the perfect place to end the day. Read less

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and loved our room with a view and a plunge pool - Very comfortable & private. The resort is remote and it's a lot of effort to get around the island - so guests are a 'captive' market, and everything is priced accordingly.

The resort is set on the edge of the jungle, and the hornbills are fascinating however if you're wanting to experience Thailand, this isn't the place to choose.. If you want to take a break and are prepared to pay 5 star prices for everything - this certainly is. Read less

Arriving by speedboat really sets the scene for this holiday - you feel kinda special & privileged. The hotel location is fantastic, with a nice beach & a warm sea just steps from your room. The fabric of the hotel needs a little TLC, but work was already starting on this when we departed 29 May. But everything worked & the feel was very tropical. Julian does the meet & greet & is a bit of a character. Bonjour mon ami, if you read this! The entire staff were friendly & nothing was any bother to them. Happy smiley people....it's very infectious! As said by many, the restaurant is on the pricey side, depending on what you eat. Some of the dishes were a bit hit & miss, but in general the food was pretty good. Have a late breakfast & save yourself the cost of lunch, it's a big breakfast! Definitely not a party island, most nights there was a singer/guitarist after dinner. It's really all about stepping out of your room onto a beach, having sand between your toes as you eat dinner, swimming & kayaking & just chilling out. We booked a local guy (Bass Tour) to take us on a 5 island tour - some great spots, great snorkelling & just spending the day with Bass & his winning smile was pretty cool. If staying a few days, I'd advise an early use of the shuttle bus to the local village to stock up on holiday gifts, cold drinks etc, We try not to re-visit places, as there's so many places in the world to see. But we'd certainly come back here & would recommend it highly. Read less
