View at Six Senses Hideaway Yao Noi is breathtaking and even distracting. I couldn’t concentrate on my work with this gorgeous view in front of me. But this is the view you’ll see if you go to this resort and now they’re offering a summer fare for Thai residents.
We went there during our last trip to Phuket and immensely loved the place; it was just like staying at the luxurious tarzan abode with hifi, fridge, flatscreen and all, amidst a thick forest where we could go about walking or cruising on golf cart. And the fact that this resort is environmental friendly is a big plus for us. They recycle the water bottles and give us just a silky, thin duvet instead of the usual thick other hotels tend to use, so we can turn the air-con just enough. And their service was just exceptional! You are their guest and they give you a personal butler!
Koh Yao Noi is the model for many things. This small, fishing village is closely united to wade off industrial fishing. They also have homestay facilities and tour packages. But to my recommendation, we should all go there and take the opportunity of Six Senses’ summer fare and experience the local people’s food… and even some touring, if you want. Here are the local food prepared by Ja Nee, one of the villagers in the homestay network.
