      Glow Elixir Resort on Koh Yao Yai island is a real delight”

      After a full month of real enjoyment in this sunny and picturesque paradise my wife and I want to share with potential vacationers our experience. It was early January when we arrived there and received a very warm welcome by the Resort’s staff and Resort Manager, Ms Kanthaboon. This was our third visit at Glow Elixir during past14 months. They remembered and knew our “pattern” of daily routines from previous visits, and took fantastic care about them at our every step, during wholesome breakfasts, candle light dinners at the beach restaurant, decorating our room, booking day trips, and many other things. We experienced unprecedented treatment throughout our stay. Their respect was equally and continuously demonstrated with all guests in the Resort, many of them returning guests like us, from Canada, Finland, Switzerland, Germany, just to mention a few. This Resort is both, adult/senior as well as children friendly paradise, accommodation and facilities wise. You do not need fancy attire while in this paradise because everything in the Resort is casual and steps from your beautifully designed villa, regardless if you are in the first or last row of beautifully designed villas. The Resort offers day trips to neighboring islands, Phi Phi, James Bond, and other attractions on Phuket Island, which is just minutes away from Koh Yao Yai. Glow Elixir does not only “glow”, Glow Elixir radiates and shines as best on Koh Yao Yai !

      Wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle”

      Beautiful sandy beach, Room with a view, Comfort and beauty in a quieter part of Thailand

      We had a wonderful stay in Glow Elixir Koh Yao Yai. We were collected from the airport and brought by private transfer directly to the hotel, which would be quite difficult to get to had we been trying to get there ourselves. On check-in we were given a welcome drink and a soft seat to rest. We were promptly shown to our villa having received a free upgrade. Our villa was beautiful with a large bed with a canopy looking out onto the ocean and beach which was only a few metres away. We had our own private mini pool in outside our villa which was in complete privacy. We also had loungers and an umbrella to relax. Food in the hotel was good, but if there was one problem it was that there was really no where else to have dinner except in the hotel as the island is quite remote. The food in the hotel was beautiful though and on our final night the chef came to ask us about our stay and recommended some places to eat at our next destination in Koh Samui. The staff in Glow Elixir are amazing! They go above and beyond the call of duty, we had forgotten a few items in our early morning departure, having contacted the hotel the did not hesitate to post them to us in our next location and didn't want any payment for it. We thought they were so kind! We took a transfer by private car/longtail boat/private car from Koh Yao Yai to Don Sak pier and it was excellent. We really enjoyed our break in Glow Elixir and would not hesitate to stay there again!

      Be prepared to extend your vacation!”

      View of the sunset, proximity to the beach, restaurant food, selection of activites

      I stayed two nights in Phi Phi and three nights on Koh Yao Yai at Elixir Resort. After the first night, I regretted going to Phi Phi at all. From the moment you check in and taste the cold, iced, lightly sweetened lemon tea welcome drink, you know you've come to a refreshing and relaxing place. The resort features yoga, cooking classes, motorbike rentals, kayaking trips, and diving/snorkeling opportunities for a small premium. They were renovating the rooms when I arrived (I was quite impressed with the lack of noise or otherwise evidence thereof... I only knew of the renovations because a staff member told me), so I was upgraded to the Deluxe Villa, which offers a view second best only to the ocean front villas. Breakfast was included with the room, offered in three sets to choose from, and was one you'll look forward to every morning. You can dine on the patio directly in front of the beach and take pictures that will make everyone enviously happy for you. Niina, the manager, went out of her way to ensure each guest received the vacation they were seeking, whether a couple, a family, or the solo adventurer, and is a wealth of information about Koh Yao Yai and Phuket. If you're looking to get away from it all and not interested in being herded along with packs of vacationing tourists, this resort and this island will suit your needs effortlessly.

      Andaman dream”

      We stayed here April 11-14, 2016. We had one beachfront pool villa and one villa without the pool. Both were lovely accommodations. The grounds were gorgeous and the meals were superb, including the free breakfast buffets. The staff were very attentive and helpful. The beach was rocky at low tide and lovely and swimmable at higher tides, and from what I hear, larger and deeper than most other resort beaches on the island. Snorkeling was OK, but not much life or color when I was there, and didn’t see the coral reefs that were reported to be there. The sunsets are awesome, with the coastline actually Glowing each night. It was great to have the Elixer Dive facility right next door for trips and rental of snorkel or diving gear, and some valuable island tips. Numerous motorbike rentals are available next to the resort, and this is a convenient and affordable way to explore the island and its wonderful vistas and private beaches, as well as getting to restaurants (a 30 min. ride to Ban Rim Nam restaurant is a must, for the best seafood on the island, and there are other great roadside restaurants a short walk up the road from GLOW). Most ameneties that one would like are also available, including massage, fitness, table tennis and billiards. When we had a problem with the AC unit in one of the rooms, we were moved to a larger poolside villa further up the hill for one night while they fixed it. This turned out to be a very quiet and picturesque area of the resort, which we were glad to experience, despite the presence of marauding monkeys, and this offset the slight inconvenience of the move. Although it is a 45 minute taxi trip (arranged by the resort) from Chong Lard Pier at the north end of the island, it turned out to be a great quiet location near the southern end of Koh Yao Yai. Overall, a perfect place to soak in the relaxed and beautiful aura of Koh Yao Yai and its restorative powers.

      Pristine beach, quite atmosphere, great food, rooms and staff”

      Koh Yao Yai and Koh Yao No are very very quiet islands. They are not attached to each other but close, and this hotel on Koh Yao Yai has beautiful grounds with mostly European tourists who all seem to value quiet. During our 5 day stay even babies and small children were very quiet compared to USA kids. Most rooms have a pool or outside jacuzzi sized pool option attached to the room. The hotel has a large clean pool just off the beach, a workout room, massage at the pool area, restaurant on the beach for all 3 meals. You can get beer and alcohol at this resort but if you want to have your own, you need to bring it before arriving on this island, island is mostly Muslim, Both men and women drive and women are not in Burka just head covers, everyone seems friendly and welcoming. Not much to do outside hotel. If you rent a scooter you will just see undeveloped nature, a few local areas, few restaurants, local night market, that's about it. But there are a few restaurants down the road from the hotel you can walk to. The hotel can also arrange for you to rent kayaks or do a snorkel, diving trip to PhiPhi or elsewhere. I prefer to spend my time in the resort. My daily routine: Breakfast on the beach, enjoy the completely clean ocean water and sand, then lunch at my room at my outside pool area, later to the the large hotel pool, then dinner at ocean front to see the sunset. Very relaxed day. The staff are all lovely, helpful people. Sunset is so pretty every night. Hotel food is very very good. Most rooms you can enjoy the sunset from your room or come down to the large beach or restaurant area to watch it. You can order drinks and food to be served inside or outside at the restaurant , at the beach, pool or your room. Rooms are very nice, feel spacious, clean, inviting. If you can afford it, book the best room at the top, huge pool area and pretty private, but all rooms are nice. Hotel manager (her name is Gay) is just lovely, welcoming and very helpful. All of the

      Very Quiet Island”

      Koh Yao Yai is a very quiet unspoilt island. With it being a Muslim island there are very few places where you can get alcohol (except the resorts). If you want a place to just chill out and just enjoy the nature of the island then this is the place for you. The GLOW Elixir resort was a perfect place to relax. The resort is maybe a little dated but the bungalows were well appointed and clean. The outside shower made a nice addition to the whole experience. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was good. There was a reasonable (but not massive) choice of food. There was a nice pool (with a poll bar) which is only metres away from the hotels private beach. If you want to go and eat somewhere else there is a choice of 4 or 5 different restaurants only 200 metres away (non of them serve alcohol though). It is worth renting a motorbike for a few days to explore the island and its lovely beaches.

      Great Hotel, Great Staff”

      The rooms and the view!

      Elixir is an excellent hotel in an amazing location! Koh Yao Yai is the best island I have been to in Thailand, so untouched by tourism (there is only 6 resorts on the entire island). We stayed in the standard room which was beautiful but there are more expensive rooms which are incredible! We met the general manager, Nina, who was great! She was very accommodating and would go around each evening talking to all of the guests. The food at the restaurant was delicious, with excellent service. I would recommend hiring a motorbike and driving around the island, its fantastic! I am desperate to go back to Kho Yao Yai and stay at Elixir again!!!!

      Lovely Resort”

      Elixir Resort Koh Yao is located absolute beachfront. Our pool villa overlooked the sea to Phuket Island, which was very nice. The staff at Elixir are really friendly, kind and helpful. It was great to find a 4 star hotel on a relatively undeveloped island so close to Phuket, and the meals at the hotel were very nice. The hotel is surrounded by native vegetation and it was really interesting to see wild monkeys playing on the beach.
      As the ferries (longtail boats and speedboats) arrive at the northern part of this quite large island and the resort is located in the southern part of the island, it would be helpful if transfer options were outlined on the booking form. We were fortunate that a taxi happened to be at the pier when we arrived from Phuket. Decking around the pool area needs replacement/varnish in parts.

      Elixir Resort Koh Yao is a really nice place to stay. It was great to find a resort with most amenities on a relatively undeveloped island, but so close to Phuket. We observed many species of wildlife near the resort, which was really interesting, but none of these animals came anywhere near people to be of any concern whatsoever to guests who prefer wildlife to remain at a distance. The monkeys were really cute to watch, but were very timid and ran back into the bush if anyone approached them. It is really quite inexpensive to travel from Phuket to Koh Yao Yai by longtail boat (1 hour from Bang Rong Pier) or speedboat (30 minutes) and there are many ferries available each day. If you want to visit a tropical island which is relatively untouched by inappropriate commercialisation and retains much of it's native vegetation, then this is a great island and resort to spend time in. It is very quiet compared to Phuket, but there are still plenty of interesting things to see and do.

      Peaceful, good food, nicest beach on island

      Stayed at the glow elixer for four nights. The rooms were very clean and the outdoor shower was refreshing after the hot sunny days on the beach. The food (both western and Thai) were quite good. Price was reasonable as well. Breakfast didn't have the greatest selection but was alright. Rented a scooter and toured the entire island, checked out all the beaches and glow elixirs was definitely the best. Its a bit rocky but all the beaches on the koh yao's are. If you are looking for white sand beaches DO NOT STAY HERE!! The koh yao's are meant for those who want to get away from the crowds and truly experience some peace and quiet. There is a dive shop on the resort as well. We found the prices to be a bit high but there aren't many people with you if you go ( 6 at max I believe) so if you don't like the crowded tour boats it might be a good idea to go out with elixir divers. All in all a great hotel If you're looking for some quiet time.

      Relaxing Getaway. Very Quite”

      the bed, the room and the tub.

      When we arrived it was pouring rain. Our driver dropped us off and we were greeted with a yummy hot lemongrass tea and some cool towels. The check in was easy and we waited in the lodge for a bit unit the rain slowed down. The hotel staff walked us up to our private bungalow which was amazing. We entered to a tranquil and beautiful bungalow. The room came with two huge cozy bathrobes, slippers, an amazing canopy bed. The bathroom was to die for. The outdoor shower was brilliant and outside on our deck was a sunken in jacuzzi. The private deck had two lounge chairs which unfortunately we didn't get to use as we picked the rainiest weekend to visit. Regardless, it was such a relaxing weekend away. My husband and I are teachers in Phuket so the long weekend was much needed. It was low season so it seemed as if it was only us and a few other couples staying there. The island of Koh Yao yai is very small. If your looking for a place where you can walk off the resort and check out local spots, then this isn't the place for you. Check out the neighboring island dog ooh yao noi. But if your looking for a peace quite getaway then this is it. The views are amazing and the bed was so comfortable. It was hard to leave. The food was great. Its pricey like all resorts are but their portions were huge and totally worth the money.

      Relaxing group trip”

      Private beach very calm waters and lovely white sand, resort is peaceful and the rooms are clean and comfortable

      We spent a week at Glow with a group of friends. We luckily arrived during high tides so the transport from airport to resort was very convenient as we got dropped off at their private beach directly and everything took under an hour. We were quickly checked in and escorted to our rooms which we found very comfortable and clean. We stayed in room 131 which is next to the pool and 30 seconds from the beach and has the loveliest view at sunsets. The resort faces west which means it gets a lot of sun throughout the day and amazing sunsets every night over Phuket. The beach is a private white sand beach, very calm waters and quiet. We spent most afternoons relaxing by the pool and beach, which has plenty of shade if that's something you seek. The staff, especially Banana, was very helpful when booking day trips for us and scooters when we wanted to explore Yao Yai and Yao Noi. Elixir diving and recreational centre is also on site, which is convenient if you want to explore other islands. Our only complaint about the resort is that the food on site is overpriced and mediocre and bland compared to other restaurants on the island. We didn't try any of their western dishes; we stuck with Thai food which they never made spicy or sour enough to our liking. Their breakfast is basic with simple selection of eggs, fruits, juices, bread and thai stirfry of some sort. If you want iced coffee, ask for a cup of ice and make your own as this is free and just as good. We had breakfast at the resort but most nights found dinner in the surrounding village. There is one decent restaurant w/in walking distance, others you'll need to scoot to. Something to keep in mind, the majority of people on the island are Muslims hence pork and bacon are hard to come by. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay at the resort and island. We were looking for a low key and relaxing holiday with a nice beach and got exactly that. If Glow improves their food, they would definitely get a higher rating.

      Wonderful quiet spot”

      Great staff thanks to Gino and Scott, gorgeous quiet private location

      located on a very quiet part of koh yao yai, this hotel is for those seeking quiet as there is literally no other adjacent resorts or town to speak of nearby. you have wonderful western facing sunset views over phuket and a more or less private beach. the rooms are fine, we stayed in a superior villa right next to the pool area and it was fine. you won't get 6 star service from most of the local staff, but gino the gm and scott the chief chef are incredibly friendly, helpful and service oriented to making your stay relaxing and enjoyable. the island is predominantly muslim so there is no beer or liquor for sale outside the hotel and there is very little of a town to speak of, so most all your meals are eaten at the hotel (thank goodness scott is there and customizing the menu). if you are expecting extremely new accomodations and a glitzy stay, this is probably not the spot, but it does feel incredibly comfortable and authentic. it's down a dirt road but has great ais mobile phone connection (don't think other carriers worked), somewhat ok wifi in the public areas ... no internet in rooms to speak of. chill, no frills, comfy spot with very few tourists around. have to take a speedboat from phuket to get there and on windy days there can be very big waves and can get quite choppy. we had two very small kids so i would suggest trying to get on a bigger boat if it feels windy and/or sit in the middle of the speedboat cabin. we caught the last boat out and they packed it probably far above capacity. didn't feel very safe with small kids and a very windy day. fortunately it was only about 25 minute trip. otherwise was no problem. going over on speedboat was not a windy day and didn't feel too bad. rent motorcycles from the shops outside the main entrance for 250 baht a day and you can cruise around the island and/or go over to koh yai noi which we didn't get to but apparently has restaurants or other things to see.

The private beach is beautiful with light sand and clear water - it's not busy or crowded like other resorts on the island. The staff was very nice and helpful.

      For total relaxation away from the hubbub of Phuket

      If you have found Koh Yao, you are probbly looking to kick back and relax with few added facilities and services. with Glow, you have found the right place. If your budget runs to it, the deluxe pool villas provide total privacy and you could never leave the room and have a great few days. The price probably warrants a better restaurant and higher se rvice levels, but on Koh Yao Yai, you are not comparing to the facilities on Phuket or mainland, so take some of the construction flaws and just enjoy

The normal bungalows are beautiful, and comfortable, and have really cool outside showers. The other more expensive bungalows are bigger, and have their own pool outside.
