Hidden from plain site, in the archipelago of Thailand’s Ko Yao – which is part of the beautiful Phang Nya Bay, sits the Six Senses Yao Noi property. The resort, though it might seem simple from the outside with its organic houses, packs in a whole lot of luxury for guests to really enjoy the island and its surrounding natural beauty. The resort villas and suites cater to the number of guests per booking. Each of the houses are far apart and secluded enough to give guests their privacy; and come fully equipped with essentials, should guest chose never to leave their cozy comfortable rooms. Thai food is in excess at their dining outlets though other cuisines are available too. The Six Senses Yao Noi, though focused on high-end luxury services, is a staunch practitioner of sustainable, eco-friendly living and also believes in giving back to society. The Resort also lends its property out for the perfect destination beach wedding.
The prime suite on the Six Sense grounds would have to be The Beachfront Pool Villa Suite. This luxurious living space comes with its own garden and infinity pool, beyond which is a private stretch of the beach only for guests of this suite. The duplex villa suite has a deck on the upper floor with the perfect sunbathing spot and is connected to a master bedroom en-suite open bathroom and shower; while the lower level has an air-conditioned sitting room en-suite another bathroom. The interiors are minimalist and simple with wooden walls and accompanying furniture with Thai cultural influences adorning the rooms. The room has a special wine fridge and a private bar that could be stocked with personal requests.
