Escape to a romantic hideaway

The Six Senses Yao Noi is a rustic and cosy escape in one of world’s most beautiful locations. The resorts tropical gardens and mangrove forests provide a haven for local wildlife whilst surrounding the gorgeous and secluded villas.

Staggering scenery is just one of the amazing features of this resort. The attention to detail and uncompromising levels of service are evident throughout the property –you will savour your time spent here for years to come. Luxury at a Six Senses resort comes from the feeling of seclusion, the fabulous setting and the design of the hotel which is in keeping with the surroundings.

Each of the exquisite villas is serviced by a personal butler, meaning you can do as much or as little as you desire. If you want, there is a large range of activities available, including Thai kickboxing, rock climbing, water sports and cycling trails to explore local villages and secluded beaches.

Indulge in world class dining where menus are fresh and seasonal – much of the produce comes from the hotels own organic vegetable gardens, and we must mention the all-day complimentary ice creams.

Be sure to visit the spa, which is one of Asia’s finest. Set in a traditional Thai longhouse next to a tinkling waterfall and overlooking the gardens. Choose from an extensive menu of treatments and yoga programs – including aerial yoga.

stunning views, average food

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

This was our second time at a six senses resort (laamu maldives was the first time). Views from the hilltop pool are amazing!! Absolute magic. Also the pool itself was a dream, and it usually was pretty quiet. Hardly any kids, and the ones that were there were pretty quiet. The music was sometimes a little too present/loud, weird choice in styles we thought. The staff is supernice, like everyone. Although English was sometimes a problem which could cause for awkward situations. Like when something went wrong and we tried to explain this, they went in full panic and awkward mode almost. We thought the bar staff (the Den) was the least sincere/friendly. But most were very sweet. Like from the pickup at the airport to being taken to the marina and the boat: supersmooth and everyone so friendly. Our GEM was really there for us and very helpful. We did think that the restaurants staff could get better trainings in the details. It usually felt like there were so many people working, but all with a slight lack in experience. Not all, of course, but in general. Our main problem, same like we experienced at the other time in a different six senses, was that the food was a 7 out of 10. And at a place like this, with nightly rates like this, you’d expect this to be at least a 9. It was all just not super tasty/creative/good. Breakfast was good, with many options. But no one was on top of refills at the buffet: pans/pots were often almost empty. Also, our first 3 days, we had to have breakfast in a different place than usual cause they were renovating the actual breakfast restaurant. It was small and sometimes no options but 1 in where to sit. When the renovations were done and we could go to the normal breakfast restaurant, it was way bigger and more spacious and the buffet was so much more diverse and way more to choose from. I just think that guests should be informed about this upon booking. Even the f&b manager said (when I pointed out that we were suprised and happy to be having breakfast at this renovated place) that indeed it was waaay better and more comfortable. Anyway, the food at six senses is our main reason for not choosing this chain again. Although we do very much support their sustainability program in eating local and own grown organic products. It’s just, how all is prepared... not bad but certainly not top notch. The whole property looks beautiful though!!! Very take care of, all gardens and greens are perfect. Our hideaway pool villa was very comfortable too, we later heard we were in a recently renovated one. All was very new and clean and a nice style. Very spacious. Nice private pool and very secluded/private. We did 1 spa afternoon. Make sure you are very clear on what treatment you want, cause we had some miscommunication on what was the free consultation they offered and what was not. They are not superclear on this when during your treatment suggesting like hey we can check this and this now if you want? And then it was another 100 euros apparently. Also: ladies get your nails polished before you come here cause this was not their strong suit it appeared. Great gym facilities and we went to yoga every morning which was a great way to start the day. I miss the view and pools!

Paradise.

Greater London, United Kingdom

We stayed at Six Senses Yao Noi for 5 nights and I can honestly say I’ve never experienced such a complete and blissful holiday. From the minute we landed in Phuket, the SS team took care of our every need. The boat trip to the island was utterly memorable. Our GEM was exactly that – an absolute gem! He anticipated our every need, booking things he thought we might like, and got it right every time. The food was consistently excellent, a rarity in resorts I’ve found. Breakfasts are epic, as was a chef table experience hosted by Vikram. An exceptional evening, he was the ultimate host. Sessions with Dr Aneesh were inspiring, thought-provoking and I might go as far as to say, life-changing. Thank-you. We will come back to Yao Noi. It’s our new happy place.

Facilities

Swimming Pool

The resorts main infinity pool comes with the most stunning of views over Phang Nga Bay’s magical limestone karsts.

Spa

Set amongst the forested hillside, the Six Senses Spa promises holistic wellness through a range of therapeutic treatments designed to rejuvenate and revitalise your senses. Six Senses are renowned for their intuitive therapists who are trained to advise you on wellness techniques to take away with you back into the “real world”. Natural, ethically produced products are used – and we would recommend trying one of their signature treatments, sensory therapies or Asian therapies, including a variety of massages such as the bamboo massage.

Watersports

Being on a bijou island, brings with it many opportunities to explore the surrounding waters. World class scuba diving and snorkelling are both available, as are mangrove kayak tours, sailing and island hopping. The waters are warm and crystal clear – enjoy.

Activities

For a place that feels so secluded, there is a remarkable number of activities available to you. In addition to the fabulous water sports, you can explore the island more with the complimentary bicycles available to guests – perfect for a visit to a local village or for finding a secret picnic spot. Try a new skill such as Muay Thai Boxing, Thai Cooking or some wine tasting. Yoga, fishing trips, rock climbing and fascinating cultural excursions can all be arranged – or not, as you please.

Cinema Paradiso

Cinema Paradiso keeps all the family entertained with movies on the beach under a blanket of stars while ushers serve popcorn and drinks.

Koh Samui

Food & Drink

The Living Room

Close to the beach, this all-day dining restaurant offers alfresco and undercover seating. Start the day with the extensive and delicious breakfast buffet, tempting snacks throughout the day – and Thai specialities in the evening. There is also a deli and patisserie nearby where you are welcome to indulge in free scoops of gelato.

The Dining Room & Chefs Table

The main dining room area is on the lower floor of this central split level restaurant. Here you will find several private dining pavilions and a cute creek meandering beneath a glass floor. Upstairs is the Chefs table, where you can sit up close and watch the expertise of the chef with no more than 8 people. This is a terrific and fun way to experience a personal dinner. The resorts organic vegetable and herb gardens are close by, and the menu will reflect the huge number of products used in the dishes which are home grown or from the Phang Nga region.

The Hilltop Reserve

The Hilltop Reserve is best experienced during the day – where beautiful lunches, creative cocktails and a long and varied wine list is available to be served on the terrace next to the huge infinity pool. This is the highest dining spot in the resort, and the view is simply spectacular.

The Den

Sit back, relax and enjoy the music. The menu at The Den is varied and the cocktails creative.

The Main House

The main house is the hub of the resort and a tranquil dining choice. As you arrive you are directed across two soothing pools towards a selection of intimate seating nooks and two sunken bars.

In-villa dining

The Villas are so luxurious and welcoming – that there could be the occasion where you simply don’t want to leave it. In-villa dining and room service is available 24 hours a day, and include champagne breakfasts, private picnics and evening barbeques.
