Koh Yao Noi, Thailand

Six Senses Yao Noi

Outstanding private villas for unabashed luxury

An idyllic tropical experience

With 56 private villas sprawled along the jungle-clad Koh Yao Noi coastline, the Six Senses Yao Noi offers an idyllic experience in a tropical island setting, enclosed by spectacular seascape scenes. By taking a sustainable approach to hospitality, this resort implements an Environmental and Social Sustainability Policy, focusing on protecting the environment, energy efficiency, water and waste management, noise control and air quality.

Choose from ocean, beachfront or hideaway villas; you can be perched on the cliffs with sweeping panoramas, hunkered down in the treeline just steps away from the white-sand beach, or secluded in the lush confines of tropical forest.

The dining experiences at this resort reflect its eco-conscious outlook, with menus designed around a farm-to-table initiative, ingredients homegrown, and many products made on-site or sourced from local suppliers to eliminate plastic packaging and the carbon footprint of deliveries. Guests can pick from three atmospheric restaurants, spread across the island, serving Western, Asian and international dishes, as well as two bars.

Relaxation is key to your stay here at Yao Noi, and each of the teak, traditional-style villas comes equipped with its own private infinity pool and terrace, perfect for soaking up the sun and al-fresco dining. Each villa is serviced by a personal butler, meaning you’ll never have to lift a finger – unless you want to. In that case, there’s a large range of activities available, including Thai kickboxing, rock climbing, water sports and a variety of cycling trails. The resort also caters well for children and promises an array of entertainment options to keep them happy throughout the holiday.

Positive Impact

This eco-friendly resort works to protect hornbills as their numbers have sadly dwindled in recent years. Six Senses Yao Noi’s vegetation bears fruit, which is a staple of their diet and also installs artificial nests similar to their natural habitat. This is necessary as natural tree cavities occur in old trees, which are vulnerable, and the process is slow and not always optimum for breeding. The resort’s partnership with the Thailand Hornbill Project ensures that they’re doing everything they can to help the most iconic wildlife on the island.

As the only private sector company accepted into this Royal Project, this resort serves as a link between the government and the local community in developing the personnel and plant genetic resources for the maintenance of plant varieties, and also for the development of the country’s agriculture, forestry and economy. The resort works with RSPG to increase the progressive conscience and knowledge of natural resources conservation, especially among younger generations.

Together with Imagine Thailand, Six Senses Yao Noi has provided a clean drinking water system for Baan Bang Doung and the Special Children Centre in Phang Nga.

Baan Bang Doung is a government school about 80 kilometres outside of Phang Nga city with 73 students and seven teaching and administrative staff. The Special Children’s Centre has 32 staff members (12 teachers, 16 staff and four support staff) and 208 students. By donating to the English Education Programme, they support teachers in five local schools and organise events to expose children to culture and sustainability. The resort also supports experiential learning through Trash Hero, which motivates children to complete a series of challenges to clean and reduce waste in their everyday lives. And by collaborating with hospital authorities and donating medical equipment, they can also do their bit to make a difference.

One of the latest projects that this resort has undertaken is an immunisation programme, which is aimed at protecting the population and making the island safe from disease.

Places to combine Six Senses Yao Noi with

Le Norma Restaurant, Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok, Thailand


Mandarin Oriental Bangkok
Providing extraordinary service and overlooking the Chao Phraya river, the Mandarin Oriental is undeniably one of the city’s premier hotels. If you’re interested in history, a stay here is a must: it’s the longest established hotel in Thailand and became one of the Mandarin Oriental group’s flagship properties due to its distinguished history. Walk into the hotel’s magnificent lobby, and you’ll be greeted by a spectacular flower display, for which the hotel is famous throughout Bangkok. Choose between a variety of rooms from entry-level luxury in the Superior Rooms to the considerably more spacious State Rooms and Authors’ Suites. Each room is designed in a colonial style with white slatted doors, dark wooden features and light pastel shades. You’ll benefit from a butler assigned to your room during your stay. The hotel also has eight restaurants; take your pick between traditional Thai, seafood, fine French cuisine and many more options. Drink tea in the opulent Authors’ Lounge or enjoy some jazz and cocktails in the Bamboo Bar if you’re looking to unwind after a long flight. In a prime location overlooking the Chao Phraya river, the Mandarin Oriental is close to some of Bangkok’s most popular attractions. Cruise along the ‘Venice of the East’ and take a long boat out onto the city canals, threading your way towards some of the city’s cultural highlights, including the Grand Palace, various temples and the famous Floating Market.
