We had an smooth arrival to this hotel and it is called paradise for a reason. The rooms are amazing and I love the privacy of the outdoor area and the swinging seat. I found the staff super friendly and was even taught some Thai words that I practice everyday with the staff. The staff always have a smile ready for you. I love the fact that 95% of the staff are locals. The prices are more expensive than usual but for a clean beach/resort, beautiful rooms and friendly staff... you can't put a price tag on that.
I didn't find a problem with the Mosquitos (but they don't really love me anyway). The massage was great and the yoga session was in such a beautiful environment with an awesome teacher that it was a great way to start the holiday, I could go on and on about how much I love this place.
To the manager I'd like to say thank you, I'm on the start of a 6 month Asian adventure and it's going to be hard to top this place. Please thank all your staff from me for a special holiday.

We were return visitors to this fabulous island resort. This time we spent two weeks at Paradise Koh Yao to get away from the Australian winter. What makes the resort special are the staff and its remote island beach location under picturesque limestone cliffs.
In regards to the staff they are all very friendly and willing to help, some have language difficulties but it does not take long to get the communications working. In particular we would like to thank Pascha the wonderful yoga teacher. Pascha has a passion for what she does and will tailor every lesson the meet the skills of the people in the classes. Thanks to Pascha my wife will be taking up yoga at home.
We would also like to thank all the dining room staff with special mentions for Oz, Nah, Prem and Laii. At every meal we were warmly greeted when we arrived.
The lady who did our room, Been, had a number of chats with us and we noted one morning that she rejected a sheet as it did have a small mark on it from the laundry. Been scurried off and sourced a new sheet.

I returned to Paradise this year. It was just as fabulous as last year. An amazingly tranquil and beautiful place. The beach and food are lovely. I enjoyed the massage and Skin treatments at the spa. I enjoyed my Birthday for the second time at the resort.

เราก็กลับเข้ามาที่รีสอร์ทบนเกาะนี้นิยาย ในครั้งนี้เราใช้เวลาสองสัปดาห์ที่พาราไดซ์เกาะยาวจะได้รับจากฤดูหนาวที่ออสเตรเลีย สิ่งที่ทำให้พิเศษรีสอร์ทเป็นพนักงานและสถานที่ชายหาดเกาะห่างไกลของตนภายใต้หน้าผาหินปูนที่งดงาม
Rough road getting there but worth it!! Everything you'd expect from a Thai trip...Beauty, excellent food, clean rooms with great views...The yoga center on the beach is AWESOME, don't miss it. This is just a nearly perfect place...Looking forward to returning!

Just like their slogan says, this place is back to nature but in luxury, style and comfort. It feels very exclusive as it is remote and small. Facilities excellent and staff extremely helpful - especially when my husband was taken ill and we had to get him some medication, a huge thank you to the staff for helping and removing the need for a trip into the village by myself to search for medication!
Brilliant range of activities and food is good. Service at the Seafood Terrace was very slow a couple of nights we were there, sometimes waiting an hour between courses but we could have always chosen the buffet instead of a la carte and still had a brilliant meal. Also we were never in a rush so slow service wasn't a problem - more chance to enjoy the view, the food, the drink and the weather!
Really recommend for families - there were lots of children when we stayed :)
Also a big thank you to Sarah the yoga teacher, the daily yoga sessions were really something to look forward to - and what a view from the yoga sala!
A true paradise, we stayed in a room with a private splash pool, the rooms were immaculate, outside showers with a view of the beach. Everything was very clean and neat, citronella shampoo and soap in the showers and at night when you return to your room a citronella candle has been lit to keep mosquitos away. Amazing day trips, we went on a thai boat trip out to kayak underneath rocks and find that it opens onto a beautiful lagoon on the other side also the resort Packed delicious lunches for us to enjoy on a complete private island. You can aslo rent 4 wheelers and go into town during the day-not as comercial as a lot of the other towns, friendly locals and you can shop as well if you like. Spa on site for massages that makes ypu feel like part of nature.True paradise.I am still craving the unbelievable flavoursome food they served at the restaurant. Dreaming about going back there very soon, fell in love with the place.
First time yoga retreat and my first for the island. Day 2 and I love this place - yoga facing the sea just makes the experience really magical. Real bonus when the instructor is also great in her instructions and being able to customise the class accordingly. The only fretting part is the 1hour speedboat journey to and from Phuket for me - seems to be a test of one's determination before one reach the resort.
We have stayed at this Boutique hotel twice now, the location & scenery are stunning ! We love the fact that you can only access this hotel by longtail boat. It's near to James Bond island too, which is a must visit. We had an executive suite with a huge hot tub with amazing views, as were the views from our private terrace. Our accommodation was immaculately clean, housekeeping was excellent. The spa was lovely & the yoga pavilion was serene & tranquil, as part of our stays we were given free massages & yoga sessions, thank you. The beach here is superb & the pool is cool & shady. We love the trips on offer too, we visited deserted islands with idyllic beaches as free excursions & went sea kayaking through sea caves into deserted enclosed high walled lagoons. The food offered in the restaurant was of a good standard, we particularly enjoyed the seafood buffet night & the Traditional Thai dancers & Muay Thai boxing display one evening. We would definitely recommend this hotel & we will be back to stay, again & again. A big thank you to all the staff at The Paradise for looking after us so well ! Thank you. We have made some lasting friends of other travelers while staying at this hotel, over delicious cocktails during happy hour at the beach bar there. What can I say...... Just love this little piece of Paradise ! Keep up the good work !
I am extremely happy with my travel experience. I travelled alone. The resort is a beautiful relaxing place with many wellness activities and the spa services were remarkable. A very quiet restful place and plenty of activities for those who wanted to see more of other islands around.
