At the time we stayed, we were the only guests at the resort, and both staff members (an elderly thai couple) didn't speak a word of English. We had to communicate using drawings and hand signals. However, they couldn't do enough for you, and they managed to sort us a moped rental, and boat to Krabi and always were there...

This place has around 15 very nice cabins. Half of them superior sea view half normal garden view. Both of them are very nice and worth a trial. The staff is extremely friendly. Whenwe were there Pond (she normally runs the place) was sick. Her mother did her best to support us but she doesnt really speak english so it...

Room was clean and basic, which is expected for the price. Views are amazing. However the first room's air-conditioner didn't work & was brought a fan. Managed to change to a smaller, cheaper room with working air-con but no compensation. Lady at the front, while friendly, does not speak English. Not a single word. Didn't meet Pond as other reviewers...

First of all I was all over Thailand from North to south so I know what I am talking about (even that the islands are totally again totally overpriced). I don't know who pond is (who is stated as owner of this resort in former reviews) but I've never seen her over the time I was here. The actual owner...

We actually moved here from another hotel on the island that didn't really work for us, and arrived at Esmerelda unannounced and were treated with great hospitality from the start. We looked at a few of the bungalows, all of which looked lovely, but decided to go for the top room, which was unbelievably good. The great thing about here...

Staying here is more like being the guest in the bungalow of a gracious host family. Pond is absolutely lovely and very accommodating. The food was delicious and the view can’t be beat. We had a very relaxing time, getting a message and scootering around the island. While there are a few other resorts, the island is still relatively untouched...

This is a great place to relax, certainly when having visited the busy cities. We were welcomed by Pond, the girl who basically runs the resort. The view from the dining area is spectacular. Our bungalow, B4, was realy spacious, whith a large bathroom, everything very clean. The sea view was wonderfull! Pond organised all our trips, and it was...

A really wonderful start to our 3 weeks in Thailand. A beautiful quiet island, we rented a moped most days and loved exploring and finding beautiful beaches. Such an incredible view from the place, the photos don't do it justice. We went to touristy Koh Lanta next for 3 days and longed for Koh Yai Yao. Pond is absolutely brilliant...
