Want to know a secret? Six Senses Hideaway Yao Noi in Thailand is hot on the heels of its much-acclaimed neighbour, Six Senses Soneva Kiri… the difference is, not as many people know about Yao Noi. An hour's speedboat journey from Phuket, the island is blissfully quiet and feel like a truly exclusive and exciting jungle retreat – perfect for lovers who enjoy getting back to nature.
It has some of the most gasp-inducing villas views we’ve seen, with a panorama of limestone islands dotted across Phang Nga Bay. There are tuk-tuk buggies to take you from your villa to the beach and the super chic bar / restaurants, or up to the Hilltop Reserve at the crown of this jungle-clad hill – a superb spot to relax and enjoy a meal or drinks. It has an incredible swimming pool with one of the coolest slides ever and its own astronomy tower with a very serious telescope for stargazing.
During the day we suggest hopping on a bike and cycling around the island (which is relatively flat once you leave the resort itself) to visit some sweet local villages. Back at the resort you can sooth your limbs at the Six Senses Spa, nestled into the lush tropical forested hillside and styled after a traditional Asian long-house. Come evening there is an open-air cinema down on the beach for you to snuggle down in a beanbag with a cocktail in hand and feet in the sand.
In short, Six Senses Yao Noi promises a truly blissful break. Call us for more details: +44 (0) 20 7289 6100 or email email@example.com
