An island of adventure with a range of things to do.
Koh Yao Yai is a natural paradise of lush jungle, quaint fishing villages and sandy golden beach. Lay back and admire its beauty or delve into adventures both on land and at sea with the multitude of Koh Yao Yai things to do.
The family pool is an oasis of fun for all ages. Little ones are safe in the shallow toddler pool, while older kids can spend all day sliding and splashing with water toys galore.
A wonderland of jumping pits, bike paths, climbing walls and slides, our kids’ club is one of the largest in Thailand. Little ones are kept entertained with activities throughout the day, including sports, arts and crafts. Babysitting is available upon request.
Teens are given their own space to relax and socialise. There are also organised sports, outdoor excursions along the beach, and movie nights to join.
Our gym is state of the art, with Technogym machines, weight stations and free weights. Yoga classes are held in the studio, which can also be booked for private sessions.
Perfect your asanas with a private session with our resident yogi. Join in group classes on a hilltop overlooking the sea or down on the beach. With classes at sunrise and sunset, you’ll draw inspiration from the beauty that surrounds.
Koh Yao Yai is large, yet mostly undiscovered, making it ripe for exploration. Follow trails through the jungle, pedal up hills for stunning panoramas, or cycle to neighbouring villages to see the fishermen bring in their catch.
To explore the island at a faster pace, we recommend a motorcycle and sidecar. Whiz along the coast, stopping for photographs and refreshments. Picnic at the top of a hill overlooking the sea.
At low tide, we put on friendly volleyball and soccer matches. Play as a family, or invite our team members along for a game to make up the numbers.
Koh Yao Yai is tranquil, lush and surrounded by the most beautiful beach and cerulean waters. Choose your backdrop for a professional shoot with your dedicated photographer.
Learn the secrets of Thai cuisine. The session begins with a gathering of ingredients and catch of the day from nearby fishing villages. Then whip up your dish, drizzle it in exotic spices and enjoy for lunch.
To maintain the tranquillity of the island, we provide non-motorised equipment. Stand-up paddle across placid waters, glide along the mangroves in a kayak.
The nearby islands of Hong, Bamboo and James Bond make for ideal daytrips. Laze on sandy beaches, discover hidden lagoons and snorkel shallow reefs.
Indulge in the most romantic of moments as you charter a longtail boat for two and cruise into the sunset. Canapes and Champagne are served on a secluded sandbank as you revel in stillness and beauty.
Head out to sea with a local fisherman and learn how to identify the different species of the Andaman and reel them in. We also offer deep-sea fishing in fully outfitted speedboats.
Snorkelling & Diving
Koh Yao Yai features wonderful snorkelling just off the beach during the high season. We also offer daytrips to Hong Island which is renowned for its underwater life. Divers will enjoy Shark Point, Anemone Reef and the King Cruiser wreck nearby.
