24 miles from Yacht haven
The 56-pool-villa, ultra-luxury, Six Senses Hideaway Yao Noi is built around a small hill. Situated on a tiny crescent-shaped all-tide beach between Ao Muang and Long Beach it offers 5-star services for the cruising yachtsman. Anchorage is in 4-6 metres on mud outside the hotel moorings near the wooden jetty on the north point.
Koh Yao Island Resort is just past the southern headland; there’s a walkway through the mangroves behind the outcrop joining the properties. Always a welcoming spot to stop in both seasons in light conditions. Yachts can use their spa, restaurant and swimming pool, for a fee. The road behind leads to a supermarket, roadside bars and restaurants, including the popular Pirate Ship restaurant.
Anchor in 8-10 metres on the muddy bottom. The orange marker buoy indicates the minimum safe distance from the fringing reef. It’s not a mooring buoy.
