Splashy pool villas
If you want a peek into Yao Noi’s fancier side, you could try a night or two at one of these nine contemporary villas, some with their own pool.
Set around a large central swimming pool, each villa has air-con, big living rooms and kitchens, and either one or two bedrooms with king-sized beds. Set up with full entertainment facilities and the service level of a private villa, you’re offered a host of things to do here including yacht charter with Villaguna’s own trimaran or free use of one of their colourful little motorbike sidecars. It’s all very snazzy and modern, with the simple pleasures of the beach found just across the road. Being along the road gives Villaguna less of a "retreat" feel than other high-end places on Yao Noi, though it’s easy enough to escape once you close the doors of the villa’s sumptuous rooms. Not that this or any part of Yao Noi is hectic anyway, with its sprinkling of motorbike traffic and the odd stray goat. Staff here are incredibly welcoming – a high-touch level of service. Khun Amina, the villa manager, is a local with hospitality in her blood as she’s the namesake of Bungalow Amina run by her mother. Prices include breakfast at the attached beachfront restaurant. Big discounts in the low season months.
