Reviews Of Paradise Koh Yao Retreat Cente

Sylvie Thimoléon Guillot

It's a magical place, removed from the world, accessible only by boat. The food here is excellent, the lovely people. Everything is done to rest for away from it all.

Brenda Crickmar

Excellent resort. Very private..Food good but a bit expensive! Atmosphere? Ahhhhh SOoooo relaxing.

Christabelle Brown

Breath-taking locality, excellent service, clean, eco-friendly, well appointed rooms, super-friendly and helpful staff. Explore Phang Nga Bay and Koh Yao Noi or just laze around on a hammock with a book or a cocktail or two. This place is paradise!

Colin Thompson

Exception service beautiful location great rooms...only my first day so :) add a star later

Manee Jaikid

I really love this place. Because its really nice & quiet. People friendly & and I love them always smile... make me feel good...I think some day I'll go back there again in the future.

Samantha Wilson

Beautiful beach, mediocre food, great yoga and fantastic massages. What let's it down is there are no local restaurants, shops or spas, it's literally just the resort. Great for a first timer visiting Thailand but not authentic enough for the more experienced traveller.

Ana Santanna

True Paradise... the sidewalks that the hotel provides are too much. .. a little expensive but it's worth it... stay the whole day at the hotel doesn't have a lot to do... and don't have any little shop of nothing... hey good bring everything... but the place is magical ...

Sandra Pachouk

It looks beautiful. Well, I'd like to go and then for the first time in more than almost 20 years into such a beautiful place. Yes.

Stefan Schnatterer

Renate Schmitt

One of the best places to relax.... and the most delicious food ever. We are looking forward to see you again soon.

Stay Here 3 NIGHTS 2 room hotel from the Thailand trip. Come cheap down 50 % this review for Thais, who entered the rest because as I read the reviews are mostly foreign Love - a room clean, decorations beautiful blankets, mattress is good quality comfortable. / staff / good service at sea, beautiful. / there's a hornbill in natural face. So cute. Don't like. - food. Not many expensive (fried rice chicken dish. 250 baht including taxes and charges) tastes good enough to eat. Like making foreigners eat which most of the guest 90 % Foreign (first read Bree. The view that food yum forgot that a review of foreign. Expectations, huh, that'll go eat. Sleep. Rest) Don't like. - employees who don't have the heart fr̂xnth̒ service booked the room. 2 room, but no room for each other when booking in advance for a month. Let the bed twin. Don't provide until have to rant, so willing to make, and have asked for a room to move in together in The next day, but the new room, air not cold toilet not down before it's completed, spent almost half a day, but the resort, just make it up to by to tour ride, free market. Introducing the journey - can devil resort by a long-tail boat from tha bay trip lane is 2,000 baht per person. If you stop by and tour the island room ko sesuvium before entering resort will be 2,500 baht By the summary for 3 Stars because of the value of a room was from the tours if booked full price would be for just 2 Star.

Nami Srisawat

Brenda Tam

They named it right, this is truly paradise! Friendly staff, amazing setting and amenities! A great place to relax!

Wendy Simpson

We did the Elephant trecking and shopping! Half way through the ride! the elephants got spooked by trucks carting pipe. It was really silly for them to run it at the same time. We were that scared for us and the elephants , the elephants got cracks on the head and jabs in the forehead so loud you could hear what sounded like bone cracking, then when the elephants got a Crack or jab so hard the elephants yelled. There were 3 elephants in our group, one elephant was great, the guide got off and let the girl ride him. But the other 2 didn't really want to go a certain way, so the got cracks in the head when they wouldn't move, and the sound of them cracking the head, was like cracking a coconut. We were so scared for the elephant and us, us and one other group asked to go back, we were done, and didn't want to see any more bleeding than was really needed, the bloodwas running down his face about 10 minutes later. NEVER AGAIN.

Gay Hutchinson

The beauty of Paradise IS the fact there is no shops or restaurants. It's the perfect place to go & relax. If you want to do activities staff can help you arrange them. Staff are extremely friendly & helpful.

Lorraine Bryant

Amazing place, beautiful people and wonderful food! My husband and I stayed seven nights and it was perfect to spend our 20th wedding anniversary there, thank you for such fond memories

Ivan Lalinde Gallego

Its not Paradise! Its HEAVEN!!! This place is the best to take a real rest in the life. Everything is so nice. Landscape Rooms People Food Beaches Sunshines Yoga classes All of that is very good!!!

Wendy Ewin

Our wonderful holiday at Paradise Resort will stay with us for a very long time. Stunning beach front location, lovingly cared for by ground staff. Fantastic views from the restaurants, pool and our second storey unit. Well designed, 'shabby chic' decorated accommodation with comfortable bedding. Delicious variety of Thai & Western style meals. Friendly, generous staff, who go above and beyond, to make sure guests are well taken care of. Much to see or do, or laze around and do very little. It's up to you to how you spend your precious time in Paradise.

Rebecca Wellborn

After two weeks of scripted travel in Myanmar with a large group, coming here was the perfect was to decompress. Our suite at the top of the hill overlooks the cliffs and the sea and is comfortable and terribly romantic. The service is friendly and attentive and the restaurants are reasonably priced with creative menus. An excellent value away from the crowds of Phuket.

Clo Quinn

Literally paradise on earth.Enjoyed every second of it. The staff were amazing, warm and welcoming and they couldn't do enough for you. I'm a coeliac and they catered for me better than any other holiday I've been on. Can't wait to go back someday.

Jintra Supapan

what a real paradise!! I'm looking forward to visit there again.

Anikó Zimmermann

It's a real paradise here! Love to see the sunrise from our bed and have a bath in our own yakusi whenever we want. The early bird 'hok nòk' awakes you in the morning! very nice romantic place! don't miss it! Very good spa, lovely rooms, delicious food, thai and westernstyle, seafood...very exerted staff!

Emma Fisher

You feel like you really have landed in paradise. The most beautiful views, stunning beach, a whole range of water sports on offer and a Huge pool. When it's too hot why not try some batiking with a local artist. Staff where lovely, great cocktails and delicious food. Yoga or a massage on the beach or just lying in a hammock reading my book. The only way out of paradise is by boat or truck unless your a hard core cyclist that can take on those hills but there really isn't much reason to leave.

Anita Cusack

Do not ride the elephants they are badly treated as you will read in other reviews. This resort has no problem with elephants been stabbed in the head until they bleed profusely and cry out.

Jules Rico

Fantastic, tranquil place. Stunning location, accommodation, food and service.

Nienna Lusardi

We have just got back from our honeymoon and we had such a brilliant time, the room it self was clean and tidy and we loved all the nature and animals we could sit on our balcony and watch the hornbills in the trees and the fruit bats once it was dark. The staff go above and beyond for you we where planing on thanking all that looked after us on our stay personally but never got time :( the activities on offer are really special and made our holiday, kayaking and jungle trekking to name a few. The locals on the island are so nice and friendly as well. We can't wait to come back!!!

Laurena Donoghue

We just spent 6 nights here and it has been amazing! The staff are very friendly and welcoming and provide excellent service. It has been the most relaxing week I have ever experienced. You can do as little as you like or choose to take part in excursions / day trips. We did a self kayak trip around the islands and it was great. We also did the island hopping trip where we had the opportunity to snorkel and that was fantastic. The food, service, our room, everything has been beyond our expectations and a trip we will always look back on with fond memories. We upgraded to a deluxe plunge pool villa and we feel it was definitely worth it with views of the bay, it has been so beautiful to wake up to the view each morning. I am a vegetarian and there were many options to choose from on the menus. We will definitely be back again and recommend to our family and friends.

Maryn Armour

Fantastic. Relaxing and very enjoyable. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food is great. The room is comfortable and attractive.

Tiago Lino

Wonderful view and service. The staff is lovely and very helpful, even though their English is not the best you can see they try their best. Very peaceful place especially by the pool with soft music from the bar and all the trees surrounding you. The bedroom is not at a 5* level but it's acceptable and the Wifi can be tricky sometimes (ask for the general login because the personal one doesn't work all the time). Definitely recommend it for a couples escape.

Samantha Quinn

Quite a bit of false advertising at paradise Koh Yao. You can't make any outside calls from your room except to other parts of the resort. They advertise they have an on call doctor if you get sick. This is false as I found out the hard way and had to waste a whole day traveling back to Phuket so I could get antibiotics. The food is mediocre and not much variety. The staff speak very little English. All I can say is never again!

Trudy Clothier

Had a great relaxing holiday here. Yes I would go back again as I came away feeling very refreshed. Great staff, lovely outlook, wonderful food and large rooms. Great spot

Carla Terceiro

Amazing resort but not so good service. Amazing views,beach and rooms. Service not delivering what we bought for and they dont care pretending suddently they dont speak english...

Angela Dale

We are on our second week at Paradise, and loving every minute. We had our Anniversary here, and had a room upgrade!! Room 141 is amazing!! Definitely recommended. The staff are incredibly friendly and eager to help, even if their English is not great, after all, we are in Thailand!! The "a la carte" food is so tasty and the buffet suits most tastes, having themed nights. Some staff stand out, Marry and Faii in the restaurant, and their amazing manager Oz. Boy and Tey at the bar, Leila in the beachbar, who comes to our beach area around lunchtime to see if we want any cocktails or snacks, Elias, the trainee manager, and our lovely housekeeper!!. I cannot fault anyone. I am looking forward to the remainder of our holiday, and celebrating my #+th birthday here on the 17th ( a lady never tells her age lol!!) Enjoy the tranquility!! P.s. the spa is great too!!

Sally Blackburn

Paradise Koh Yao is actually paradise!! The island is stunning, the resort is so beautiful; green, lush, feels almost untouched! Can't not speak highly enough o how beautiful it is!!

Josie Tanson-Collins

Myself and husband came over to have a brake from our busy lifestyles, we had a ball the shopping on crabby was fun. On our last few nights there my husband hurt his back and the staff could not do anything but help they even help get some medicine. So he was fine in 24 hrs, the staff's English was great we made great friends there. So thank you all for a great time I miss it

Nicole McKenna

Heaven on earth! It's name speaks for itself. It really is Paradise. The resort is amazing and the staff become your friends. Take me back!!

Orcun H. Yaman

5 Star from me I'm in Love with this Place. lovely Place. One of the best Resorts i've ever been. Just lean back and enjoy the beauty of Nature. Perfect Place for Honeymoon, Chillout.

O Obno X Ious

What a wonderful resort, amazing staff in amazing location. The food, cocktails and service are to die for. The spa is world class bar none. I'm sure some of these people who have had a negative experience and commented here were at another location or purely discontented with their own life..... by the looks of them they were. The way I look at it is you can't afford a holiday stay at home.... It is amazing..... get in touch with reality.

Thay Sajjamanachai

We stayed there for our weekend getaway! It been a unforgettable weekend!. Everything is so peaceful and all the staffs was really nice to me. They all remember me and my room number, they all smile and there to help you. Wish to go back soon. Greeting from Bunnie and Sooojung ;)

Marc Bro Beier

Lovely stay, indeed a paradise. Only suggestions for the hotel: More rapid clean of plunge pools, not just clean for leaves - but complete empty and refill. Consider a pool or billiard table Pingpong/tabletennis table available at all time, not just specific days. Great food, great view, lovely staff. Will return. Best advice plunge pool or hilltop villa, normal pool villa does not have privacy. Ideal spot for couples. PS: choose not to inform resort, but we were on honeymoon, thanks for a lovely stay.

Deborah Hatton

Paradise Koh Yao is one of the best resorts I have been to. My partner and I stayed here for 9 nights and it was one of the best holidays we've been on. The friendly staff, delicious food and relaxing atmosphere create the perfect get away. It's so different to the hustle of Phuket and yet is still close to all the islands, so kayaking and snorkeling tours are amazing. Definitely will be back again.

Casey Roland-Reinosa Ballesteros r

Beautiful experience in a wonderful resort. We enjoyed 4 days at Paradise and indeed it truly is. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a one bedroom villa with a private pool with access to the beach for our honeymoon. It was perfect. The food was fantastic. Great authentic Thai food along with Mediterranean options as well. The breakfast buffet was also very good with a wide selection of different food each day. Also Woody the manager was very kind and arranged a romantic candlelight seafood dinner for us on the beach. We also enjoyed happy hour everyday at both of the bars. The drinks were fantastic. Some of our favorites were the Coco Loco, Mai Thai, and the mojitos. The activity center has a lot of trips available. We were given a complimentary snorkeling trip to a nearby island which was great. We also booked the Phang Nga Bay and James Bond Island kayak tour. Our guide Jeep was a genuine person. He is a great guide and told us about Thai culture and his life growing up on Koh Yao Noi island.The trip was amazing and unforgettable. We kayaked through caves and had a picnic lunch on a beautiful private beach. Back at the resort we also got a complimentary yoga sampler. I enjoyed a wonderful yoga class with Maria. We also had complimentary massages on the beach which was nice. Afterwards I decided to go to the spa for a signature massage with oils. The spa is beautiful and after the massage I felt like a new person. We also did the Thai cooking class which was a great experience. We learned to cook some authentic dishes and they give you all the recipes to bring home. 4 different dishes. Excellent chef. Above all we really enjoyed our stay at Paradise. The workers are so kind and always smiling. Very welcoming and amazing hospitality. Thank you for making the start of our honeymoon truly unforgettable. We hope to return sometime in the future.


“Fabulous Resort for Relaxation” We were return visitors to this fabulous island resort. This time we spent two weeks at Paradise Koh Yao to get away from the Australian winter. What makes the resort special are the staff and its remote island beach location under picturesque limestone cliffs.


“Yoga retreat ” First time yoga retreat and my first for the island. Day 2 and I love this place - yoga facing the sea just makes the experience really magical. Real bonus when the instructor is also great in her instructions and being able to customise the class accordingly. The only fretting part is the 1hour speedboat journey to and from Phuket for me - seems to be a test of one's determination before one reach the resort.


“I wish to be here forever! Best place is Koh Yao Paradise in Thailand.” Thanks for arranging Speed Boat Pickup and setting our Weeding anniversary so beautifully. We will remember your kind service and yes the beaches of this private Bay in Ko Yao Noi. What is most good here is the service, people and lovely nature.
