Thailand

Paradise KohYao | Koh Yao Noi Island

Hotel highlights: Great for romancing! We can’t decide between the plunge pool hillside room or the open air Jacuzzi room. Thankfully all rooms are equipped with outdoor bathrooms!

Destination highlights: The hotel is one with nature, located on its own private bay. While it’s secluded it’s also accessible, reachable from Phuket by speed boat (45 minutes). Shops are limited in the small village though the local’s friendly service makes up for that. Plus the endless array of excursions organised by the hotel will give you an intimate experience of all corners of the island!

The name of the game is relaxing, and the personal touches, such as the complimentary afternoon tea by the lagoon-like main pool, the scrumptious American breakfast pancakes which the kids go wild for, and the friendliness of the professional staff, allow guests to not only relax but enjoy every moment here.

Destination highlights: Embedded in paddy fields, far away from the crowds of Bali, the private retreat is just what the doctor ordered for a digital detox and for time well spent with your loved ones.
