This resort was amazing. It certainly lives up to its name, a slice of paradise it was. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable, Nang, Chai, Fai, Jyb and Dom to name but a few. Marc, the manager, was very good company and his knowledge of Thailand and the local area was very much welcome as this was our first visit to the East. The food was… Read more
This resort was amazing. It certainly lives up to its name, a slice of paradise it was. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable, Nang, Chai, Fai, Jyb and Dom to name but a few. Marc, the manager, was very good company and his knowledge of Thailand and the local area was very much welcome as this was our first visit to the East. The food was superb and there is an organic garden on site. The daily site of the lizards and hornbill’s light up your day. We stayed in a deluxe bungalow which had a plunge pool and an outdoor shower, which was stunning, the view was breathtaking. The excursions arranged by the hotel are exquisite with trips to secret lagoons, untouched beaches and of course James Bond Island. This holiday was absolutely out of this world. After 2 years without a holiday, this was more than anyone could of dreamed of. Thank you for our best holiday yet. Read less

Wow. From the moment we got onto the speedboat, fantastic service, fantastic friendly amazing staff, from the guys on the speedboat, the reception staff, the spa staff and restaurant staff. Our jacuzzi room was beautiful, we loved the wildlife, the hornbill birds, monkeys on the beach, lizards etc. Do not hesitate to book this place. We are mostly from the Thai menu all week, excellent quality food and service. In with our package we had a free half hour Thai massage, my advice is, when booking at the spa, upgrade to an hour massage, we had the stress massage, just amazing. It’s the attention to detail that is a plus point for this hotel, on the turn down service they light a gorgeous oil burner in your room, nice touch. Would definitely recommend. Would definitely go back. Read less

It is actually nearly ten years since I visited Paradise with my son! But the memories of a great holiday are still strong. I'm sure the fundamentals haven't changed too much. It was a truly fascinating and out of the way place where it was impossible to bring your troubles with you. In particular I recall the excellent range and standard of food and staff in the restaurant, the themed evenings and the numerous daytime activities available at nearby locations (snorkelling, elephant rides (not PC anymore?), village visits). One of the most harrowing but exciting ventures was to take a 4WD from the resort to the Koh Yao village! I think it was about 6-10 km but took over an hour due to the extremely rugged and muddy road/track between the two! Really great memories and highly recommended! Read less

This is one of the best resort in Phuket area. The resort is located in koh yao noi, it’s an 1 hour boat ride away from phuket mainland. The hotel located in the quiet part of the island far from other hotels. You need to book their in house boat shuttle to get there, it’s an additional cost but worth the price. The boat was nice and they’re taking care all of your luggage. Upon arrival they will greet you in the pier and provide you a delicious herbal welcome drink. The compound consists of 2 resort, treehouse and paradise koh yao. We’re booking the paradise and need to take a golf cart to the lobby. The resort is quite huge and the rooms are located in the hills, you can walk but they also provide you with golf cart that can pick you and drive you whenever you need it. Checking time was smooth, staff are really nice. One good thing i love about this resort is they empower local people to work in the resort. We booked the package that was included with yoga class and a boat trip to pak bia island. Even though the resort is quite isolated, you’ll have a plenty things to do. They have lists of free and paid excursions that you can do during your stay. We did yoga, played ping pong, rented kayak to explore the phanga bay. Don’t forget to catch sunrise from the beach and you’ll be greeted by flocks of hornbill birds which are the native of the island and the resort is basically their home. It’s a bit hassle to go to the nearby village but you can get dinner in the resort as well, the foods are delicious. I had so much fun and really enjoy my stay in the resort and hoping to come back again one day. Read less
