Koyao Bay Pavilions is set in a beautiful pristine valley with an abundant amount of wildlife surrounding us. We have many giant water monitor lizards, sea eagles, hornbills, kingfishers, and an abundance of tropical flowers and plants native to the area.
As soon as you step out of your Villa you are instantly overwhelmed by the beautifully natural surroundings!
Here we have a nice little trek through the valley of roughly 3.5 km (2.2 miles), that will take you about and hour and a half to complete. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended, as most of the trek is gravel and dirt tracks, sometimes hilly, with some parts surrounded by high grass. You will get the opportunity to spot a lot of the beautiful wildlife surrounding us. A refreshing drink can be enjoyed half way round and if you time it rite, watch the Sunset to the West because heading back along the road.
Mountain biking is a great way to see the island at your own leisurely pace. Explore Koh Yao Noi and all it’s natural beauty. Soon you will see and experience the different pace from the likes of Phuket and other neighbouring islands which makes Koh Yao Noi so special.

We work with some local drivers who take real pride in showing off what makes Koh Yao Noi so magnificent. Visit small fishing villages, rubber tree plantations, quiet beaches, local people doing batik, coconut & rubber tree plantations, also visit the local market area and enjoy a coffee or lunch in a local restaurant whilst watching the local people go by their daily lives.
Koh Yao’s rock-faces are fast becoming Thailand’s next vertical playground. In the high season, when Railay and Tonsai are inundated with thousands of climbers, the best rock-climbing destination in Thailand is now Koh Yao Noi, with over a hundred routes of varied grades, all in pristine condition and affording wonderful views from the tops of its semi-deserted crags.
The climbing on Koh Yao Noi is perfect for the more adventurous climber, though it’s not necessary to be able to climb advanced grades, there are now a good selection of beginner routes on Koh Yao Noi, which are all in pristine condition. For mid-range climbers this is currently the best destination in Thailand. The Railay/Tonsai routes in the range 6a – 6b+ are all highly polished and overcrowded in the high season, whereas on Koh Yao Noi the many new routes at these levels are in mint condition and never crowded.
