Go elsewhere! Berutiful island, disastrous resort.
Beautiful, amazing view. But do not go there. Super expensive for what you get, at night it was 36 degrees celsius inside the mosquito net. No fans, fine if you've built the accommodation in a way that takes account for tropical weather. Instead of a relaxing last 3 days of our holiday, we did not sleep. After the first night we asked the person in charge for a solution*. She did what she could, but the owner Anita who was away would allow nothing: we asked for a refund for one of 3 nights so we could afford another place and get some sleep, but no. They even admitted it was so bad because the trees hadn't been cut back, stopping any breeze. It was not just uncomfortable but dangerously hot, only 1 litre of water provided (luckily we brought our own!), we had to get up 5 times in the night to shower to bring our body temperatures down to a manageable level, and we woke up with headaches, feeling terrible. 3 expensive, sleepless nights. So many equally beautiful resorts on the Koh Yao islands that are environmentally aware, use local & sustainable produce, are locally owned, locally staffed, with better food and service. Go to any of them! We also stayed at Koh Yao Yai Village (on the sister island): incredible, a fraction of the price. * a student from Germany who had only been there for two months left in charge while the owner was away, instead of the Thai staff who had been working there for longer; very strange colonial dynamics made this stay even more uncomfortable.
