Koh Yao Beach Bungalows
Spacious tropical gardens
52 Moo 5, Ko Yao Noi T: (076) 454 213, (089) 592 2390, (087) 896 3815
Set just back from the beach, this low-key resort has added several more bungalows in recent years but it still retains a tropical garden setting with tall coconut trees and plenty of space to swing a hammock.
The choice of small or large wooden fan-cooled bungalows or concrete air-con bungalows with TVs and a mini-fridge will satisfy budget-to-flashpacker tastes, though none have hot water showers. WiFi is free but only available in the restaurant. We didn't find much in the way of style here, but it's peaceful, the prices are right, and it's just a quick hop across the road to the beach. Staff at the reception desk aren't particularly warm, but helpful enough, and they can help arrange tours and transport.
