Prison in paradise
On paper this should be a future favourite, however the cynical way in which this company has gone about ensuring that you can’t leave for the duration of your vacation along with sky high pricing ensures we will not be returning. Front of house Staff are surly, unhelpful and clearly numb to the constant bewilderment of guests when quoted for transport or activities. I appreciate that a place like that has high costs but 9000 bht for a boat to Phuket for 3 people is a disgrace (we did it for 2500) if you decide to have your spine realigned and book their vehicle to go into “town” you will have to endure 2.5 km of very rough terrain (deliberately left this way so you cannot rent your own vehicle and escape more regularly) cost 1000 bht. We were dropped in a small area that was mostly closed well away from the other hotels on the island to be collected 2 or 7 hrs later. We were done in 20 mins (case full of Chang 50bht each rather than 500 bht at the hotel !!) it’s such a pity that they’ve chosen to make it so ridiculously expensive as it’s in a beautiful spot. The rooms are very small compared to Santhiya on yoa Yai where we had been the previous week and much more expensive. Food is good but very expensive, there is no gym and activities like kayaking are charged where they were free at Santhiya. WiFi is very good as are tv options but despite all this we will not return to stalag 2022

Gorgeous resort, very relaxing few days
Really lovely and private resort with beautiful room and open jacuzzi/shower. We had a great two night stay here and loved it - very private, good massage on the beach (only for guests), private longtail boat trip (booked through the hotel) to James Bond Island which I’d highly recommend! Lots of options on the menu and great breakfast also. Pool was lovely and had a scenic view of the beach from it. Suitable for couples, friends and young families. Only thing I’d recommend is to get the hotels speedboat rather than public boat/taxi as it’s a much more comfortable ride - also, the resort does have numerous creepy crawlies as it is so private.

Beautiful place to stay. The staff are always happy to help and book any trips you like. You are a captive audience and they massively overprice food and drinks, this is the only downfall, but a pretty big one as a drink alone is over double the price of everywhere else.

Great place to relax with amazing views and food.
Everything was excellent, great room, amazing views, delicious food and very friendly staff. Totally recommended. The only small issue we had was that we couldn't fill the spa in the room with hot water every day, but given the location and remoteness of the place it understandable. Totally recommend.

Paradise Koh Yao is stunning! We stayed in a jacuzzi studio for one night then upgraded for our final night to the treehouse - both are beautifully designed and the treehouse upgrade was more than worth it for a little treat! Not a detail is missed in the treehouses, stunning decor and a real luxurious feel! The resort overall is beautiful being situated both within the jungle edge and on the beach, best of both worlds! You really do feel emerged in nature here with absolute luxury surroundings! We had spent the last two weeks travelling Thailand so this was just what we hoped for and more! The spa is beautiful also, so tranquil. All staff so so friendly and helpful and the food was absolutely delicious! We just wish we had had more time to spend here. The only slight down side is the accessibly albeit I would argue that adds to its charm and really does mean peace and tranquillity can be achieved. It also does mean however you aren’t able to explore the rest of the island as freely. You can book onto tours, which we didn’t do as we were here to relax and had already explored from a previous resort on the island. A moped on the access road would prove tricky if you are not experienced. We loved every moment of our stay and will 100% be back!
