Yao Yai Resort

A sunset beach favourite

What we say: 4 stars

Yao Yai Resort was once the only thing going on the fine sands of Loh Paret beach, but it now has the ultra-luxury Santhiya resort hugging up alongside it, while Blue Bay Resort, a rather overpriced destination for speedboat overnighters from Phuket, is found at the south end. With Loh Paret’s coveted sunset views and waters deep enough to swim in all day, Yao Yai Resort has long been a favourite place to stay, and there’s still plenty of room to play on the sands. It’s now upgraded all its rooms to air-con, with three room types: standard, family and grand. It was fully booked during our visit so we didn’t get a look inside, but all are equipped with fridges, satellite TV, kettles and private bathrooms. The mostly wooden thatch-roof bungalows are solidly built, and each have verandas with sea views. The large central restaurant – an odd looking concrete open pavilion shaped like a boat -- attracts a good trade with both guests and drop-ins seeking sundowner drinks, and has a fair range of Thai and Italian dishes on the menu. Though prices have edged up here, like most everywhere on Yao Yai, it still offers reasonable value in the mid-price bracket – and those priceless views.
