After looking at some of the ho-hum choices in the under-1,000 baht range, stumbling upon the Activities Resort restored our hope for finding a decent budget-priced place to stay on Ko Yao Yai.

Photo of Koh Yao Yai Activities Resort
These sturdily-built wooden bungalows are set on a shady hillside just back from the road leading to Bole Bay. A short walk west along a footpath takes you to a lonely beach, while 10 minutes by foot to the east leads to an inlet lined with a thick tangle of mangrove trees and a small jetty with colourful fishing boats. Khun Virote, the friendly English-speaking owner, runs a tour operation on site that specialises in kayak trips through the mangroves. Some cool design flourishes include wooden wall panelling and vaulted ceilings. Bedding on the double beds and towels are included, and the air-con rooms have satellite TV. Every bungalow has a wardrobe, desk, private tiled bathroom with hot-water showers. Wi-Fi is also included, but we didn’t test it out. If you choose not to eat at the attached restaurant, a few food shops and a fruit market are in the nearby village and Glow Elixir resort is just up the road if you’re in need of a splurgey meal – otherwise you’ll need to hire transport to check out the local sights. Among the limited budget offerings on Yao Yai, Activities Resort is far and away the best value. Recommended.
