Great location with a perfect view from the room. The room is literally at the beach. If you are looking for a quite place for a rest then this hotel is perfect. Quite far from other parts of the island, however if you are not afraid of driving a motorbike then it's a perfect location.

If you need any kind of luxury, this is not your place. The bungalow have a basic equipment. But if you like the simple life, nature, friendly stuff, sunsets and breakfast on the beach with fresh fruits and omelet, free coffee - go here. You get a perfect value for the modest price..

Located directly at the beach, little noisy”

The best is definitely the location of the Resort. It’s directly at the white sand beach with nice view and ambience. Followed by the amazing friendly and helpful staff. They are just great, especially the manager! The Bungalows are okay for the price. A little bit noisy in the morning caused by the pier nearby. It’s time to renovate and maintain them a little. Especially the mattresses have to be changed. They are even for asia extremely hard and uncomfortable. Even my Filipina girlfriend complained about backpain and lack of sleep because of that. But the aircon and wifi worked perfectly. The food at the restaurant was good, the drinks (they also serve alcohol) always cold but much too expensive.

Wonderful staff and lovely beach but slightly overpriced ”

Padi and her crew are the highlight here. Wonderful locals that will really look after you. She took us out to a bar on the far side of the island too. Great times. The place is fine, but I reckon 1400 for an aircon room was a bit steep compared with the facilities on offer at other places for the same price or cheaper - eg, no fridge, cold shower, bathroom a bit mouldy - but none of that should bother you. The huts are on stilts right next to the beach. Wonderful times.

great spot”

the bungalows are in a wonderful position directly by the sandy beach (not crowded but sometimes too many jet skis). The restaurant is very good and the staff helpful but the interiors are very very simple, basically just a bed and a table so prepare to spend most of the time outside. Wi-fi and AC worked very well.

The best part is the beach ”

We stayed in a fan bungalow for 8 nights. It is cheap and you get what you pay for. It is not a comfortable set up. The bathrooms suck and the sink broke while we were there (they did switch us to a different room) but if you can learn to love the charm and the grit it entails, you’ll have a nice time. The best part is that you are on the beach. And the second best part is that the breakfast is pretty tasty (get the fried rice!) There are two docks on the beach and it’s fun to watch the boats come & go. Also the locals speed down the dock on scooters and the kids like to jump off the dock in the afternoons— fun to see that side of the island! Make sure you ask for water bc it’s complimentary. The staff are really helpful and sweet.

If you're going for budget, stay at the hostel”

If you are really set on Koh Yao Yai over Yao Noi there isn't as much variety in housing options. The hostels on the island were booked so we stayed here. It's an amazing beach front location with super friendly staff and good breakfast. But, because it's budget everything else is very poor. The bungalows are very old, the water in the toilet was constantly yellow and it didn't even have a seat, the floor didn't slope toward the drain so water just pooled in a puddle on the floor. Pretty sub par accomodations but you get for what you pay for.

Terrible attitude from staff”

The lady running reception refused to give us the room "fan bungalow with sea view" we had paid for on Agoda as she decided the price was too low, so gave us a room with front facing the back of another building. Upon complaing she said if we wanted the bungalow we had to pay more, then said she didnt have one. After insisting that we want the room we have paid for on Agoda, the lady said she will just give me the money back and I can go. If you have ever been to Koh Yao Yai you will be aware that the area is extremely isolated and this is not possible. Finally after about 30 more minutes she gave us the room we had reserved but then refused to talk or acknowledge us for the next two days, meaning that we avoided drinks and meals in the restaurant at all costs - a shame as there are not very many places around the area.

Please only book Bungalow do not go for standard rooms with fan ”

We (with my spouse) had spent two days at mid Jan 2020. Great view, day and night, foods are average, but the stay was not pleasant because of the cleanliness. It needs a lot of cleaning, especially the washrooms! Please do not go for the rooms with fan. It’s a disaster! The view is second to none, you will have access to very clear beach with a sight of pier to your left and rocks to your right. I understand it’s a budget stay, but you at least expect to get some clean towels and blankets – none of which were available. The stuffs are not that bad, but you will have to ask for everything and there is no complementary service, not even the water. They would not give you towels or make your room if you plan for more than one day. The charge for drinks were twice as much than normal. The tap water is not as clean as you would like, you will fell it on the hair and nails. There are not toiletries at the washroom. If you really plan to stay, please go for Beach Front Bungalow.

Below average but beautiful views ”

Firstly, the bungalows are located on a beautiful beach front. If you are looking for somewhere to lounge on the beach this is your spot BUT... ...you will need to rent a motorbike (300baht per day). if you are arriving to Chong lat pier, we arrived here from Krabi, it is 800baht in a taxi to get to White House,as it’s 45 minutes from this pier. There are taxis waiting to take you, but they are looking for money.. there isn’t another way of transport around the island other than motorbike and with our luggage that was not an option. The restaurants around the accommodation are basic and pricey. I suggest taking your bike and finding better food in the town. The bungalows are lower than basic. Ours had holes in the roof, floor and walls. The bathrooms cleanliness was substandard with the shower having only one temperature... freezing. The bed was hard as rock, not a great nights sleep. Perhaps spend a little more on your accommodation and have a comfier, cleaner experience.

Beachfront, free breakfast, but dirty and some unfriendly staff”

The location is good if you just want to be on the beach. However getting to and from there is really expensive as you have to pay for a taxi both ways (300 if you arrive at Laem Yai pier + 500-600 to Chong Lard pier) because all major piers are far (plus the boat transfer). Some other restaurants and amenities are within walking range but don't expect a lot. Renting a motorbike is also a struggle, because there aren't any shops to rent from nearby (only if you get lucky and ask around, like we did). Renting at the resort is much pricier than normal and is not for 24h as usual. Ladies at the resort restaurant are friendly, but the owner/boss is really unfriendly. He pretends not to understand english when he doesn't want to, ups the prices whenever possible, forgets to arrange stuff if you ask him to and is generally really rude. Our bungalow was pretty unclean.

The White House is located at a heavenly withe and beautiful beach next to the southern pier of Ko Yao Yai. Although we booked one of the smaller and simpler bungalows they offered us a more comodious and comfortable one.There are cute little palm huts where you can have a seat as well as tables at the beach and some deckchairs. Breakfast is tasty and included in the price but the other meals are relativly expensive. Wifi was available 24 hours but didn't really work in the room. Motorbikes can be rent for 300 Baht per day.

A good place to get away from everything”

The beach. The powerful AC. The other guests

My stay was fine but there weren't many food or activity options so we left after 1 night. We stayed in an AC bungalow and while the AC was great, the blanket they gave us was so thin it was useless. What's the point of having AC if you can't run it? The staff were really nice but it seemed like no one spoke English so figuring out anything was always a huge pantomime. The other guests were nice but when we wandered away from White House, we ran into them again as there was only one other restaurant nearby and one ice cream shop. I would stay there again if I was coming to Koh Yad Yai but I honestly can't imagine why I would.

So we had air condition and our own shower. The water was brown and better use with filter for cleaning the teeth. The staff is friendly. Wifi is good and available near the entrance.
