Cape Kudu Hotel Koh Yao Noi is a savvy option for those seeking a decent place to relax and unwind close to the beach and the beautiful blue ocean.
Circled by sapphire seas, this Phang Nga Bay island escape is for modern-day castaways.
You have two choices for arriving at Cape Kudu Hotel on Koh Yao Noi. Either channel James Bond and arrive by speedboat, or take a leisurely long-tailed boat. There’s even a luxury lounge to linger in at the pier. However you get to this tiny tropical island, when you do it’ll be rest and relaxation from beginning to end.
The infinity pool and terrace are just above the Andaman, with Phang Nga Bay views – and Long Island Bar drinks – accompanying your dip. When the ocean calls, take kayaks, snorkels and paddleboards (or a luxury yacht) out. Or, when the sun’s high in the sky, slip into the cool Reading Room where books come with complimentary refreshments and fruit. Just leave room for dinner in the Hornbill Restaurant, and its canopy of bird-filled trees and starlight.
While taking it easy is simple here, there’s a lot you can do at Cape Kudu – from the restful to the romantic. Cycle or drive around the island, meeting fishermen and Batik artisans. Join the buzz of the night market. Get hearts thumping with rock climbing or Thai Boxing. Or wind down with Thai massage and Yoga. The hotel can also arrange beach BBQs and just-for-two dinners – even showing you how to catch seafood and cook local cuisine.
- Coastal chic rooms and villas – plus one extra-special Robinson Crusoe suite
- Organic garden supplying the Hornbill Restaurant and Café Kantary
- Wide range of things to do, from Yoga and cooking classes to vintage car hire and movies by moonlight
