Yao Noi Island, Thailand

Nestled between Phuket and Krabi, Six Senses Yao Noi in Thailand is easily accessed from both islands. Spread over 24 acres of beautiful natural environment, revel in breathtaking views of Phang Nga’s famous limestone rock formations dotted in the distance.

The 56 luxury villas are made of locally sourced materials such as wood and bamboo, reflecting the eco-conscious approach of the resort and successfully combining an uncompromised standard of luxury with low-impact design. Each villa comes with an infinity pool, outdoor showers and private sundeck. Whether you’re in a Mountain View villa set amongst lush tropical forests, or in a Sea View villa that offers unrivalled views over Phang Nga Bay, any villa you pick allows you to bask in the beauty of nature with the utmost luxury and comfort.

Indulge yourself at the renowned spa, hidden away in the forested hillside above the resort, or choose from one of their many dining options for a gastronomic treat. If you are up for a little more adventure than sunbathing, try kayaking or sailing amongst the majestic lime stone formations, or hop on a bicycle and explore the island with its rice fields and rubber plantations.

Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Phuket into a greater Thailand and Asian holiday.

Six Senses Yao Noi Testimonials

Dear Josie,
Our trip went very well. We just loved everything at the Six Senses Yao Noi : the view, the villas, the attention to details and the outstanding level of service. The resort truly offers a excellent value for money. And it is very conveniently located from Hong Kong, we will definitely go back there in the future.

Thanks Kieran,

The trip was really nice! The view from our room at Six Senses Yao Noi is the most amazing view we’ve probably ever woken up to (softening the blow of our 2yo’s 6am wake up calls…!). The room was great, the pool area for the room was great, the main pool was great, the staff were beyond accommodating (going WAY out of their way and remembering tons of little details about us and our preferences), the little chicken farm was lots of fun and the free ice cream every day was a huge hit.



Just wanted to thank you for organising an excellent trip to Six Senses Yao Noi. We had an epic time and loved the place.

Could you make sure that you pass back to management there that the girl who looked after us, Lek, was nothing short of amazing and she went a long way in making the weekend an unforgettable one.

All the best,

Tried & Tested

For the ultimate Thai beach getaway to rejuvenate your body and soul, nothing beats the barefoot luxury of Six Senses Yao Noi, a Lightfoot favourite. Keira was so very fortunate to test out this stunning property located on Koh Yao Noi (nestled between Phuket and Krabi) and came back feeling completely fresh. What did she love the most about this gorgeous resort? Read on to find out!

What 3 things really set Six Senses Yao Noi apart from Phuket’s hundreds of other resorts?

The property isn’t actually located in Phuket, but a 45 minute boat ride to Koh Yao Noi. It is very easy to reach but has a wonderful remote feeling. I loved that the island had a very special atmosphere which was one of the reasons we enjoyed our stay so much. Secondly, the views. Simply put, they are amazing! There is a small beach at the resort, but it is not a ‘beach destination’ as such, but if relaxing in your room or by the pool and taking in wonderful views is what you are looking for, then this place is perfect. Lastly, the food was great, with wonderful settings and plenty of variety to keep you happy during your stay.

Describe your room, what was the most special thing about it?

The Villas are simply gorgeous The Villas at Six Senses Yao Noi are all similar in style and layout, and what takes the room from superb to amazing are the views. From your bathroom, your private pool, your bed, you can’t escape the fantastic scenery that unfolds before you. A nice respite for city dwellers!

Is Six Senses Yao Noi more of a family or honeymoon hotel?

Both actually! It is vast enough that even when full (which was the case when we were there) we felt like the only ones at the resort, so honeymooners will really enjoy that. That being said, the resort has a really great kids club which offers fun activities for kids such as batik painting, cooking classes. One thing that kids (old and young) will truly adore is the ice cream parlour: unlimited ice cream all day long!


Did you try any spa treatments? If so, what’s your review?

Unfortunately, I didn’t have a chance to try the spa treatments,but I did have time for a quick visit around the facility. Needless to say, I now need to go back and have the full-on Six Senses spa experience. The spa is actually within a spa village, nestled in the tropical hillside. Six Senses Yao Noi only uses naturally and ethically produced products so you can be sure that your body will feel utterly rejuvenated!

What is the dining like? Any stand-out dishes?

There a number of dining options, including a great restaurant serving organic European cuisine, where the chef will come and chat through the menu with you. However, I actually want to focus on the breakfast. Having been in luxury travel for quite a while now, my expectations are somewhat high, but Six Senses Yao Noi easily surpasses these, and I would have to rate it as one of the best hotel breakfasts I have ever had! As well as the standard egg choices (chosen and served from an a la carte menu – no jostling at the egg station required) and Western and Asian buffet options, there are 2 separate rooms, one dedicated to meat,cheeses and deli items, and the other is the hotel’s very own bakery, where they make fresh pastries, jams and bread. Not to mention home-made ice cream which the guests can help themselves to throughout the day. I had to be dragged out of these rooms, and ended up indulging perhaps more than is wise, but it was worth it!

How is a Six Senses different from say an Aman, Four Seasons or Banyan Tree?

I adore the barefoot luxury feel to Six Senses properties. The standards are extremely high, but the relaxed and intimate atmosphere and the welcoming, friendly approach of the staff is a welcome relief from more formal properties. If manicured lawns, colour coordinated flowerbeds and sleek sharp lines are your thing, then this is not for you, but those who love feeling like they are in natural surrounding (complete with the local wildlife) and with breathtaking views, then you will love this resort.

Asian resorts are always complemented for their superb staff, did the service at Six Senses Yao Noi stand out for any reason?

The staff were amazing. True Thai hospitality, combined with superb training make the staff a real genuine asset to the property. Despite the property being full, the staff knew our names and preferences and nothing was too much bother. After one request for fresh lime in my water, this then continued to happen without request for the remainder of our stay – a small but amazing detail.

What stands out in my mind when I think about Six Sense Yao Noi is that incredible view, is it as good as it looks in pictures?

It’s better!  Even the panoramic setting on my camera didn’t do it justice!
