How to Book

Explore Thailand’s Exotic Islands

Off the coast of picturesque Phuket, you will find a hidden gem of Koh Yao which consists of two islands: the smaller – Koh Yao Noi, and the larger – Koh Yao Yai. The former is a small tranquil paradise in the sheltered Phang Nga Bay, where we offer the possibility to extend your adventure in Thailand with some island hopping, kayaking, walking, and quality beach time. If you are dreaming about unspoiled white sandy beaches and reconnecting with nature in some of its most serene settings, then we have found the ideal place for you!

Day to Day itinerary

Day 1


Your island-based tour extension begins with the conclusion of your longer adventure, in either Chiang Mai in the north, or on the island of Phuket in the south. If in Chiang Mai, you’ll board a quick flight down to Phuket and from here we’ll take a speedboat to your island home for the next few days.

Your trip to Koh Yao Noi is no ordinary transfer, crossing Phang Nga Bay by boat is an experience in itself. Spectacular limestone karsts rise dramatically out of the waters, creating the perfect backdrop for a tropical paradise. It’s no wonder many well-known movies have been filmed in the area! 

After checking in to the tranquil Paradise Koh Yao Noi Resort the remainder of the day is yours to enjoy as you wish. Some pool time, a massage, and sunset cocktails on the beach make for some great options to kick off this part of your trip – why not all of the above!

Day 2

Meals: BL
Activity: Kayaking

Phang Nga Bay: Island Discoveries

Get ready for a day of discovery in paradise! Your day kicks off at the resort pier where a longtail boat will be waiting with kayaks aboard ready to take us to our first destintion. After cruising 20 minutes out into the bay your guide will unload the kayaks and it’s time to explore. You can enjoy the unique experience of kayaking around spectacular limestone karst islands and paddling through a short tunnel into a beautiful lagoon where monkeys are often playing on the rocky outcrops.

We’ll continue to enjoy kayaking through this picturesque setting, eventually making a stop at a secluded beach for a swim and beachfront lunch. After the delicious meal we’ll reboard the boat to return to the resort. The afternoon is free to enjoy at your leisure.  

Day 3

Meal: BL
Activity: Walking

Nature Walk & Island Time 

We have a slower-paced day lined up to enjoy the island’s floral beauty and rejuvenate your system. Koh Yao Noi is one of Thailand’s last moderately sized islands that is still mostly untouched by mass tourism. Your resort hideaway in particular is located beside national parkland on the northern tip of the island, so you are surrounded by natural beauty.

We’ll head out from the resort by foot with your guide at hand, on a gentle three-kilometer walk, taking a closer look at the Flora of the island. If you love nature then this tour has been tailored for you. Hornbills will normally be flapping around in the trees as there is a significant population of these impressive birds on the island. Your guide will also point out other natural features of the island along the way. The walk is shaded and best enjoyed at a relaxed pace so you can soak up the ambiance of your forest surroundings.

Returning to the resort you’ll have the remainder fo the afternoon to enjoy one of the nicest beaches on the island. Pick out a beachfront  hammock under the shade of a tree, and enjoy the view or a good book as you sip cocktails in between dips in the secluded bay – Welcome to paradise!

Day 4

Meal: B


Free Morning & Transfer Back to Phuket  

This is your final morning on the island so you can enjoy it as you best see fit. There’s time for another dip in the bay or infinity pool, and if you are feeling like a bit more activity kayaks are available for a water-based view of the island. A speedboat service is waiting to take you back to Phuket and it operates at several intervals throughout the day that align with departing flights. A van transfer to the airport is included once you reach Phuket, or you could choose to stay on longer if time allows.
