The Paradise KhoYao Resort could not have been named better. Indeed it is situated in Kho Yao Noi in the Phang Nga bay between Krabi and Phuket and it truly is a piece of heaven on earth!
Your experience as a guest of this hotel begins as soon as you have disembarked from your plane at the airport of Phuket. Here, a smiling guy is waiting for you. He is your driver and will conduct you to the harbor in a luxury car. Once arrived at the Bang Rong Pier you have to wait a few minutes before getting on your private boat. There is a restaurant where you can enjoy the panoramic view on the ocean while savoring a piece of homemade cake.
After having refreshed yourself it is finally time to board on your motorboat “direction paradise captain”! It takes approximately an hour to go to the hotel so have a sit, relax and open your eyes. The landscapes I saw on the way are probably the most beautiful I had the chance to admire in my entire life. In the middle of nowhere, you are surrounded by crystal clear water, tiny island with high cliffs of limestone and tropical forests.
Soon, a parcel of land becomes bigger and bigger as you approach it. The feeling I had arriving to the resort is unforgettable, I was wondering if I was dreaming. The location, in the heart of a superb palm grove overlooking the sea will delight you with exoticism, tranquility and peace.
Employees welcome you with cocktails and explain you everything about your stay and all the activities they offer you. Nature lovers will enjoy boat trips to admire the marine environment and the magnificent islands of the region such as the famous island nicknamed James Bond Island. The more adventurous will be invited to rent bike or motorcycles to visit the great rice fields as well as the markets of Kho Yao Noi.
Then, driving a golf car you will explore all the complex. The hotel have a wonderful infinity pool and a Jacuzzi with a view on the beach and the sea. You will notice that you have four restaurants: the SeaFood Terrace where you will take the breakfast toes in the sand, the Beach Club bar facing the pool, the Al Fresco for a delicious cuisine melting Asian and Western food and the Sundowners bar to enjoy the sunset.
The rooms, studios and villas hide in the vegetation have a chic and romantic decoration mainly composed of wood painted in blue and white. I stayed in the Jacuzzi Studio, which I strongly recommend. It is one of the highest bungalows thus you have a breathtaking view on the jungle and the sea. It is equipped with a canopy bed, an open air bathroom where there is the Jacuzzi and a private terrace with loungers and a swing.
Romanticism, Zenitude and Peacefulness are the main characteristics of this place. From taking classes of yoga during the sunset to having diner on a private table on the beach in front of the infinite ocean everything is thought to make your stay magical.
