There is no extra frills, but this is a nice hotel for the island. Everyone was very nice, and the island is very quiet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"fine billige bungalows"
hyggelig lille ø, uden for mange turiskter, meget lokalt og en god oplevelse. hotellet er ikke noget specielt, det ligger midt mellem byen og de andre resorts men tæt på virkelig fin Strand og har en ok pool. mulighed for at leje scooter på hotel, hvilket er et must for at komme rundt! meget simple værelse og på ingen måde luksus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hôtel pas mal situé sur la côte est de Ko Yao Noi (prononcer Noye) chambre propre dans l'ensemble malgré quelques crottes de bestioles trouvées à l'arrivée sur le lit personnel serviable, l'île est assez grande mine de rien, et il vous faudra trouver un moyen de transport (l'hôtel propose des scooters à tarif très raisonnable) petite panne électrique […] d'une heure en cours de séjour (3J) (ce qui signifie plus de clim et plus d'eau . . .) restau de l'hôtel correct pour le soir le matin vous êtes réveillés par le chant des oiseaux . . . on aime ou on aime pas mais c'est mieux que des klaxons ! au regard des tarifs pratiqués sur l'ile : hôtel satisfaisant Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel fort fréquenté par des chinois, propre, avec petite piscine, proche de la plage.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"bon hotel... sauf la salle de bain"
Bon rapport qualité-prix pour un hôtel au bord d'une petite plage déserte et très agréable. L'hôtel n'est pas tout neuf (même si bien entrenu), les salles de bain sans cabines ni bacs de douches ne sont pas des plus pratiques. Le personnel est agréables. A noter: les transports su l'île de Koh Yao Noi sont rares et rudimentaires. Prévoir de retirer […] suffisamment d'argent, les deux distributeurs de l'ile sont assez éloignés de l'hôtel.

"Not the best hotel on island"
The room was ok, quite basic. Room was clean, but the bathroom smelled like sewage. I expected more for this price. There is a swimming pool, but it is quite small. There are better hotels on this island with this price. Staff spoke very little english. Hotel was full of Chinese, whom were behaving rude.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Prisvärt vid stranden"
Ett enkelt hus, men bekväm säng och bra AC. Det ska bara finnas wifi i allmäna utrymmen men vårt hus låg så nära så vi hade täckning där med. Nära till strand och några restauranger. Lätt att hyra moped från hotellet när vi ville kolla runt ön. Gratis transfer till båten på hemresan!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wir würden nächste mal ein anderes Hotel nehmen"
Kein richtiger Strand vorhanden. Man geht über eine Treppe ins Wasser. Bei Ebbe ist etwas Strand vorhanden.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hostel to relax!"

"Pienen saaren rauhassa"
Hotelli on ehdottomasti hyvä paikka rauhalliseen rentoutumiseen. Hotellissa oli ystävällinen henkilökunta ja palvelu sujuvaa. Koh Yao Noi on kaunis, pienehkö saari, josta löytyy hyviä paikallisia ravintoloita ja paljon tilaa auringonottoon ja uimiseen meressä. Saarella ei ole yökerhoja tms. joten iltaisinkin se on hyvin rauhallinen ja hiljainen pai […] kka. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Too expensive - good location though"
02/09/14 peerapatp Bangkok, Thailand
It was too expensive compare to what we've got. Room are like 1-2 stars bungalows only. Breakfast is minimal american breakfast set which you can get all over Thailand. The most problematic issue for us was smell from bathroom drain. It was nearly intolerable and I believe it's because there is no P-trap in the bathroom drain to prevent the smell. The only good thing about this place is location. It's located at the Pa Sai beach which is the largest beach/tourist area. And you can just walk across the road to the beach from your hotel.
"Decent place but lacks character"
11/06/13 Stephen D Portland, Oregon, United States
I stayed here for three nights. Our bungalows were clean and spacious but visually a bit sterile due to all the built in concrete shelves and counters. I agree with another reviewer that it looks a bit like a roadside american motel the way the huts are lined up. The staff was very helpful with renting scooters and arranging free rides to the ferry docks, but not with laundry services. An average but big breakfast was included.
I'm surprised at the good reviews for this place -- perhaps we had a different experience because we arrived at the start of the down season. The bungalows are in a great location with spectacular views (not from the bungalows themselves), but they have the appearance of an American motel as they are all lined up. In the dark, I did not realize that they were in fact separate structures. We got one of the deluxe bungalows, and while basic and not at all charming, it would have been fine except that there were roaches (big ones and babies), mouse droppings over all the surfaces in the room, and as others have mentioned, the room was not very clean. One thing I love about many places in Asia is that the linens are crisp and clean, but the linens at Chukit felt and smelled as though they had not been washed. When I pulled back the covers, a little bug ran across the sheets. We would not have stayed except that we had arrived late, and I should stresd that we are not squeamish people. There are much better, more charming bungalows on the island for the same price or cheaper, and most are real bungalows. But, on the positive side, the AC was excellent.
"Basic place at perfect location"
05/03/13 Nele W Ghent, Belgium
It's a basic place to stay. If you don't expect luxury than it's a good place for you. The cleaning could be better but it was ok. You get every day fresh water bottles. They don't have beach towels but when we arrived we asked some extra towels and they didn't make a problem of it. The staff is really helpful. There are only 2 sockets and there's a gap under the door but we never were bitten by mosquito's. We've stayed at the deluxe room with an extra bed for a 4 year old and I found the price of 2500 bath a bit overpriced for what it is. But, I had looked for other places to stay at the island and if you want a swimming pool than it was the best place I could find that was not to expensive. We hired a scooter (300 bath for 24 hours) and found this area the best on the island to stay at so we were happy with our resort choice. There are a lot of restaurants and beach restaurants on walking distance with good prices (even open during low season). At the beach restaurants you pay 60 bath for a Chang and 30 bath for a big bottle of water. We didn't ate at the resort but the prices were like the other restaurants, 100-200 bath per dish and 120 bath for a big singha. As others already said, breakfast is totaly not interesting. We've paid 80 bath per person from the pier to the resort and when we left the staff gave us a ride back.
"really good value"
03/24/13 Mette W Copenhagen, Denmark
The rooms are nice and the cleaning is perfect and efficient. The Beds are good. Breakfast is not really interesting. There is a small pool which was a hit with our children, in spite of the small size. The beach is much more beautiful if you go north. But the hotels up there are so much more expensive. If you are in Koh Yao Noi for a resort experience, maybe it is not the best but if you are on the island to go around, I believe that Chukit is the best value, when travelling with kids.
"Great service, basic rooms, good value for money!"
Stayed here for one night (Mar 12). Really nice people! Basically, I forgot my back pack in the speed boat that dropped us in Ko Yao Noi from Ao Nang. That bag had my passport! So you can imagine my stress! But the manger here was so nice that he called the boat company, made sure my bag was safe and went to the pier and picked it up on the boat's way back. He did this for free. Given that this place is quite cheap compared to other places on the island, don't expect many frills but the rooms are well equipped with all amenities including AC. Overall, good value for money.
"Nice place on wonderful, quiet island"
02/26/13 Doug K Washington, District of Columbia, United States
The bungalows here aren't fancy, but ours was comfy, clean, the beds/sheets were the most comfortable we had in Thailand, and the management is super nice. Your opinion will likely depend on your reference point. We were coming from Phi Phi, where we paid twice as much for a worse bungalow. There are cheaper places on the island for sure, but they didn't look nearly as nice. It's true that Koh Yao Noi does not have Phi Phi's beaches, but we thought the island more than made up for this in several ways: amazing views of the karst scenery in Pha Nga Bay; access to Pha Nga Bay on tours that, because of your proximity, let you beat the crowds coming there from Phuket (but start early! We started at 8am); the lack of crowds on the island; the friendliness of the people; the ability to rent a moto and drive all around the island, which is very pretty.
"Nice staff, ok bungalows, good location"
02/25/13 moelle Denmark
The staff was extremely helpfull and kind in this medium class bungalow place. Rent a moped and discover the island. And hire a longtail for seeing the surroundings. Unfortunately the food at Chukit was more than boring. Luckily there are plenty of good restaurants at the island, so you don't have to eat at the hotel. The island itself is located in a very interesting area.
"Overpriced, Dirt Beach"
02/22/13 Luke S Hitchin, England, United Kingdom
The island We read some reviews of koa yao and thought it sounded worthy of a visit. If you don't like beaches then this is the place for you. A very chilled out island with not a lot to do but relax. If you type in "kao yao" beach into google you see beaches which you won't be able to access. These are on the north of the island and on a private resort. The beach outside the hotel is dirty, muddy and the sea is very uninviting and murky. There is also a lot of litter floating in the water as well as leaves. The best thing to do is go exploring on a moped. There is an amazing road which follows the west coast up to the north which offers some amazing views of the bay and a peaceful shoreline at the end of the road. The hotel Our first impressions for a hotel we paid £45 a night for were not good. Being valentines day I decided to treat my girlfriend and I to a deluxe room instead of a standard. If this was the deluxe I dread to think what the standard was like. The thing that annoyed me most was the quality of room for the price. This was the same price we paid for an amazing 4 star hotel along phuket's mai khoa beach, and the differences were very clear. Everything in the room seemed to be roughly moulded from chunks of concrete which made the room look very odd. The television didn't work and the minibar was just a battered old fridge. The broshure also stated there was a room safe which was not to be found in a broken wardrobe. The bathroom was situated at the back of the room with no window or ventilation so the whole place smelt, with the bad lighting illuminating a very unwelcoming shower. Because the beach was covered in litter we thought the pool may be our saving grace but it was tiny. Considering the hotel has well over 30 rooms a pool the size of one you'd expect in someone's garden was unacceptable. Other reviews have mentioned how friendly the staff were and this was very true. The man at reception was more than happy to help and tell us about the island, but this happy outlook on life is probably due to him laughing all the way to the bank after we pay our room bill. Overall the room was totally unacceptable for the price we paid, we even had to check we hadn't made a mistake by asking another couple how much they paid. We definately wouldn't stay here again.
"Good stay, right price."
02/19/13 MrWaters Petaluma, California
Not much mid line accommodation here in Koh Tao Noi., so this place fits a niche. Room was clean, Thai style bath. Separate bungalow with porch is nice. The electricity was variable so the lights flickered a bit and the a/c strained during the day. Good food and tours available nearby. Recommend if within your budget.
