    Six Senses Koh Yao Noi Thailand with the Thai Girlfriend

    We just arrived at Six Senses Yao Noi and will be here for a short time but we'll try to visit as much of the island as we can while here.

    An afternoon view from our room (Ocean Panorama Pool Villa) and the room itself.










    After flying into Phuket we were driven to the Ao Po Grand Marina where they put us on a boat to Koh Yao Noi. The ride over to Six Senses,....












    A short video of the room,........

    Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

    Six senses hotels are gorgeous. I used to have some dealings with the Evason in Pranburi (one of theirs), never was lucky enough to stay there too.

    Looks lovely

    Really is a great place. Friends of ours, a Thai couple, worked there as Chief of Maintenance and Nurse. A year or so ago I took my boat across there and my wife and I had lunch with them. They took us up to the very top villa which has 2 bedrooms, separated by large living and dining areas, complete with library, and 2 personal Butlers. A mind boggling 400,000 baht a night! Apparently the Crown Prince uses it quite regularly, as well as other celebrities.

    Fantastic view across the sea towards Krabi, with those islands being my favourite part to visit in Phang Nga Bay when I'm out in my boat.

    it's a nice hotel, but as everything in Thailand, it's completely overpriced and offer little value for what's available in other part of the world in that price range.

    500 EURO for a chic bungalow on an average beach ? their Vietnam deal is even worse, completely overpriced, better off on a 100 THB hut on a beach for such an average "exotic" place.

    for that kind of price, think Maldives with better and more stylish accommodation, and probably better food.

    In Thailand, on an average beach ? absolutely ridiculous, but great for idiotic Thai though

    It's ok to try once in while but i agree some of the best places are the simplest that's what made Thailand great

    First I want to thank everyone who stopped by and posted a positive comment (and showed me some appreciation) about the resort/thread.

    Past couple of days we've been exploring the property here at Six Senses and today we went to visit Koh Hong (and area) which is about a half hours ride (by longtail) from the dock here at the resort.

    Mangrove trail


    neighboring resort beach


    view point


    Six Sense beach area (one of two)


    walkway and grounds




    Koh Hong area (Than Bok Khorani National Park)










    the ride


    Nemo and friends

    Today we toured the island in a half day. We visited all the piers (with Tha Khao Pier being the nicest and that Krabi visitors use), most of the fishing villages, the sunset view point, the 7-11 (there's also a Fresh Market convenience store on the island), the pharmacy, police station, post office, the hospital, the market downtown, saw some nice roadwork, water buffalo's in rice fields, many nice beaches, and some quaint resorts along the way.
