Six Senses Yao Noi

Phuket, Thailand

The hotel

Nestled on a small island in breathtaking Phang Nga Bay, Six Senses Yao Noi is an escape destination like no other. Built on the site of a former rubber plantation, the resort's lush landscaped gardens and mangrove forests provide a haven for local wildlife and hide a selection of beautifully rustic but thoroughly contemporary guest villas, representing an uncompromised level of luxury. The attention to detail and focus on the destination reinforces the resort's commitment to the environment. Each villa has its own infinity-edged pool with sundeck and is attended to by a personal villa team, trained to anticipate your every whim. You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to dining at Six Senses Yao Noi. The Hilltop Restaurant is an exclusive venue with extraordinary views of Phang Nga Bay, whilst the Dining Room offers fine dining and a glass floor with a meandering creek beneath. For something a little more personal, dine at the Chef's Table or allow your butler to arrange a champagne breakfast, a private picnic or an evening barbecue beneath the stars. Be sure to visit the spa, one of Asia’s finest, set in a traditional Thai longhouse and offering a wealth of treatments and yoga programs. You can also enjoy a choice of cultural excursions, bicycle tours and cooking classes. But the greatest star is the bay; perhaps one of the best spots in Thailand to sail, kayak or simply lay back and marvel at the collection of limestone sentinels rising purposefully out of the turquoise sea.

Resort upgrade my room to ocean deluxe pool. Our villa is the ocean front which easy walking to the beach area, The private pool villa with the limestone karst islands in-front very nice view, that highlight is sunrise in the morning but villa very old and need to maintenance. Lost of insect are found on the table in the restroom. The services make me feel down, Staff seem to say “I don't know" I asked our GEM about shop promotion but she don't know or I asked waiter at the restaurant about where the chicken from. How could you don't know about recommended dish? and I’m sure your staff didn’t know about product knowledge after I called to reserve the table first lady on the line confirmed us but after 2 hours someone called back to me to inform the table is first come first serve! l'm not sure this is a 5 star resort? The breakfast in the morning very delicious but main dish is long time waiting (40 minutes first order served on my table). I think this shouldn't happen that many services is overpromising in the website Read less

The SS koh Yao Noi is probably one of the best all around resorts we’ve ever stayed. From the amazing views of Phang-nga bay rocks seen from “hill top” of the resort to the wonderful room and top notched services, we were very happy with our 2 night stays here. We especially loved the breakfast buffet which although less in variety but high in quality and tastes. The hotel also offers quite a few activities such as picking fresh duck eggs from their organic farm to mangrove kayaking. Last but not least, we were so indulged with the complimentary delicious homemade ice cream! Highly recommended! Read less

Stayed a few nights and in general was pleasent . Unique villa design - Robinson Crusoe style - with taste and care for the environment . Nice details and good service . Would just recommend to improve the black out curtains as you get the sun light 6 am in the morning and cannot sleep anymore . They offered me eye mask but sorry I don't like sleeping with eye mask , I guess would be better to improve the black out curtains design. Another negative point is u can't use the pool until 10.30 and only after 5.30 as the pool area is combined with the restaurant (?) Thanks Read less

We have stayed widely at top hotels in Thailand (lucky us; I know..!😊) Like all high boutique hotels the SS hotels have a common theme; in the case of Six Senses it is exclusivity, calm and wellbeing. So if you are looking for an understated extravagance to leave you feeling healthier than you started, despite first class cooking and great cocktails look no further. Alicia Denning and her team run this haven with great care and charm for their private guests. Things like morning yoga, batik painting and getting up to watch the amazing sunrise go hand in hand with fab views from your bath (!) and a super cool bar along with master chef cooking and Six Senses own wines.

Six sense yao noi is probably having the best room design so far of all the hotels I’ve been. I stayed in beachfront pool villa. It’s spacious and practical. Every things you needed are in there and it somehow makes you feel even more comfortable than home! E.g. in-room yoga mats, aftersun pump bottle in dressing room, towel hanger for outdoor shower. But what’s great about this hotel isn’t just the room, but the butler service. We had K.Fang as our butler who is friendly, very responsive and caring. Our trip was complete under her care! Also, they have the newly renovated main pool with a nice panoramic view and neatly design interior. All-day complementary ice cream is a must to try to complete your trip. I highly recommend the banana flavor. :) Though the journey to the hotel is rough. It requires you to fly, then drive to port and boat transfer, it is truly remarkable trip. Especially with the price promotion right now, it is the hotel that must be on your list! I will surely be coming back again. (They also said second time visit you will get a different souvenir lol) Read less
