9 Hornbills

Koh Yao Noi |

High above a private beach on idyllic Koh Yao Noi island, overlooking the bay beyond, the eco-friendly adult-only 9 Hornbills is a blissful retreat.

Each luxury, safari-style tent is surrounded by greenery creating a truly secluded space. The canvas opens completely at the front, revealing wooden verandahs where you can sit and gaze towards the ocean horizon. Beyond the verandahs are private pools for enjoying a cooling dip, and loungers for luxuriating in the sun.

Inside, the decor is simple and restful. Swathes of cream fabric create a nest-like ambiance, hanging over rustic double beds, cosy sofas and freestanding bathtubs which are perfect for enjoying a long soak with picture-perfect views.

Freshly caught seafood is combined with locally-sourced ingredients to create delicious Thai food at the main restaurant, or you can enjoy a meal in private at your tent. Treat yourself to a floating breakfast as you soak in the pool, book a romantic starlit barbeque for two, and grab light bites and cocktails at the laid-back bars.

A complimentary buggy will take you to and from the resort’s private beach, and to their sister resort, Koyao Island, where you can take advantage of the spa and wellness facilities. Hike bikes, take kayaks and paddleboards out into the bay, and enjoy the resort’s peaceful surroundings. For an extra special experience, take a boat trip to a tiny islet in the bay and dine on the deserted beach as the sun sets.

We Say
A safari-style island retreat for adults only, with a focus on serenity and spectacular views.
