Six Senses Hideaway Yao Noi

Phang Nga Bay is famed for its natural beauty and its formation of limestones jutting out of the shallow water - small island mountains in the sea. They impress with their sheer size, the changing colours and the ubiqitous caves, some are right on the doorstep of Evason Hideaway at Yao Noi.

Phangnga Bay covers an area of 400 square kilometres and was declared Ao Phang Nga National Park in 1981. While most of the park is covered by the Andaman Sea, mangrove forests grow around the margins and 42 large and small islands dot the milky green waters.

Evason Hideaway & Six Senses Spa at Yao Noi focusses on the reality of the destination with attention to details and commitment to the environment. Accommodations present an uncompromised standard of luxury and provide generous personal space with elegantly designed modern architecture.

Evason Koh Yao Noi adopted local construction techniques, using natural, environmentally friendly materials. Roofs are thatched by sugar palm leaves, while external and interior walls are wood paneled.

Evason Hideaway Ko Yao Noi villas have open-style bathrooms that create an atmosphere of space and light boasting magnificent views of the bay and the surrounding forest. Each villa has its own infinity-edge pool with sundeck, creating the illusion of infinity between pool and the waters of Phang Nga Bay. This gives a real feeling of seclusion.

At Evason Hideaway and Spa on Koh Yao Noi, each villa is attended by a butler, anticipating every whim. This service is designed to create a new and unique concept for in-house guests.

The Evason Hideaway Yao Noi will reflect the warmth and welcome of a home on a plantation estate. The Main House accommodates all dinning and entertaining alternatives.

The Living Room and Terrace offers tempting buffets at breakfast and dinner and showcases an open cold-kitchen and patisserie, into which guests are invited to wander in and help themselves. Being close to the beach and constructed from traditional material with a timber flooring, this all-day dining choice offers alfresco or undercover seating.

Evason Ko Yaonoi's Dining Room features contemporary Mediterranean cuisine. The dining area is on the lower level, with private dining pavilions set up in the mangroves around, while the chef's table with the cooking station is on the top level. A natural water meanders through this area.
