The rooms are beautiful with sea view. The guest house sits on its private beach which is easily accessible. The staff are amazing - they helped us with everything, bikes, snorkeling equipment, kayak, and even fruits "to go".

We arrived at Ko Yao Yai with no plans and in a hurry to find a place for five people to crash at before it got dark. Esmeralda View was the second place we asked (the first was full), and we were welcomed very warmly right from the beginning. In Thailand terms it is a bit pricey, but nothing compared...

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...
