Full accommodation information

Located on its own private beach, this stunning island resort is perfect for honeymooners, a family retreat or a relaxing wellness trip.

Enveloped by the island’s lush jungle paradise and golden beaches, Anantara Koh Yao Yai Resort and Villas is the perfect place to enjoy a heavenly escape. The resort sits on a beautifully unexplored island in the middle of Phang Nga Bay, where you can relax and take in the breath taking views of the limestone islets dotting the horizon in every direction.

Fully immerse yourself in the islands rhythms and take a bike ride through the coconut plantations or to the traditional fishing villages. Take a swim or snorkel in the pristine waters, and after with a cocktail in hand, watch the sun dip beneath the waves. This is one of the most picturesque spots to catch a beautiful sunrise too.

Make sure to step away to explore other islands. Phuket is just a 35-minute boat ride away, or a 20-minute boat ride to Krabi. If you prefer to stay on land, Lam Haed Beach, one of the best beaches in Thailand is a short drive away. Local excursions to other close-by islands are available so you can easily explore the beautiful Koh Hong and Bamboo Island. 

The resort offers a variety of accommodation that will fit perfectly with your needs. Choose from spacious suites or villas with private pools. For families with children, there are family suites with bunkbeds, or go for a two-bedroom pool villa option. For those looking for more of a wellness focus, there are Wellness Pool Villas where you can practise yoga and meditation on your pool deck, work out with a personal trainer and indulge in a restorative Thai massage in the privacy of your wellness suite.
