Our experience at Six Senses Koh Yao Noi
During my birthday in June, we stayed for 2 days in one of the incredible villas of Six Senses Yao Noi. It was an out of the ordinary experience with extremely personal service. Combined with one of the most impressive views of Thailand on Phang Nga bay and an extensive choice of delicious food, our stay was unforgettable.
A huge plus for me was the complimentary home-made ice cream. I felt like a kid in a candy shop, trying all my favorite flavours. All day long! We became lifetime fans of the Six Senses brand, but especially from the Koh Yao Noi location. Their commitment to wellness, sustainability and the fun and quirky way of doing things, makes Six Senses Yao Noi the ultimate place to spend your next extraordinary vacation or honeymoon!
Let nature be your playground! With the best hospitality, most amazing view and extraordinary luxury, your stay at Six Senses Yao Noi will be unforgettable.
