I am a huge fan of Six Senses and based on three great experiences in the past, I arrived in Six Senses Yao Noi with high expectations after a comfortable boat ride from Phuket.
The arrival experience was very impressive with friendly staff and I was right after escorted to my villa for in-room check in. I stayed in a Ocean Deluxe Pool Villa which was very impressive and much like other Six Senses properties. Eco friendly in every single details except the private swimming pool which on the other hand was a very nice detail and a dream for many to experience. My villa also had a fantastic bed, natural products in the bathroom and very good welcome amenities.
The service level is very high. The staff are very service minded and friendly. I didn’t get a chance to experience the restaurant during my short stay so I unfortunately can’t comment on the food. The reviews are mixed and based on my other experiences with Six Senses properties, food is not the reason to stay in Six Senses properties. The eco friendly experience and high service level is the reasons and they do a really good job. Among the best hotel chains in the world from an experience point of view and Six Senses Yao Noi didn’t disappointed me in that statement.
My opinion: Great experience.
