Villa Ya Chai is a honey-coloured, timber carved vision of comfort and style; like a treehouse in the sky, it offers a dazzling get-away, where the ocean breezes sift into living spaces and the pool blends into the sky-line.

Brimming with grandeur, style and authentic Thai flavour, this chic retreat has a crafted effect, the regal tone of the carved teak offers a majestic note, while traditional elements of a Thai pavilion home lend a nod to local style. Hand-crafted, yet sedate, this finessed abode boasts billowing four-poster beds, crisp quality linen and all contemporary comforts in place for a seamless experience.

This four-bedroom home offers striking proportions and is the jewel in this resort’s crown. Each bedroom (3 doubles and one twin) has an en-suite bathroom, while its stand-alone position enables both tranquillity and easy access to the resort amenities.

Quirky “upside-down” layout set across 3 sumptuous storeys offers a refreshing and airy feel, with the entrance to this dazzling on the top floor - which also boasts private terraces from both top floor bedrooms, complete with an outdoor bathtub for the master bedroom. Imagine slipping into the bath at the end of a busy day sight-seeing, while the sun softens over the ocean.

The middle floor offers a natural interplay between indoor and outdoor living, with a private infinity pool overlooking the sparkling ocean, framed by a terrace with indulgent loungers, day-beds and a gazebo, setting the scene for lively group meals in the ocean breezes. Sinking into the bubbling jacuzzi, with a cool drink on hand, overlooking the panoramic views will be about as good as it gets!

Villa Ya Chai is finished with impeccable attention to detail; all the little extras that make a home special are in place, fluffy bathrobe and slippers, luxury toiletries, welcome fruit basket and coffee machine. For an indulgent break, in a sublime spot, on a lesser trodden slice of Thai paradise, look no further - Villa Ya Chai is where traditional meets luxury.

Villa Ya Chai is in an unparalleled spot, overlooking the ocean in Ko Yao Yai island.  This island is a hidden gem in the Andaman Sea, halfway between Phuket and Krabi. It's known for its sandy shores, dense and luscious mangroves forests, rubber plantations and fishing villages.

For a taste of “real” Thailand, this idyllic island is perched only 50 minutes from Phuket International Airport by car and speed boat. The journey there makes it all worth it: sublime natural beauty that makes is ultra tourist worthy, yet it remains an undiscovered gem.

Stepping away from the bustling crowds, Ko Yao Yai island is known for its immaculate beaches, rubber and coconut plantations, its rich waters offering stunning coral and excellent diving conditions, local village culture and relaxed pace of life.

Friendly and relaxed, visitors can get around with a tuk-tuk or a scooter, simply stop off at hidden beaches, while snorkelling, sea kayaking and diving are all available, as well as jungle trekking through dense and unspoilt nature.

Some may call it Thailand’s last unspoilt island, it is a refreshing change from the glitzy sights and neon lights of commercial Thailand. Awash with rubber farms, (with tapping buckets hanging from trunks and square sheets of rubber drying on the ground), water buffalo, cockerels, farmers and fishermen huts, while this sleepy island is rich with local life.

Village life and local Muslim culture is a very visible part of the local culture; five times a day, the call to prayer rings out in melodic tones, while visitors may be lucky enough to chance upon a secret beach. The more popular Laem Had and Ao Muong are ideal for sunset strolls, while the lesser-known ones are populated by local children and fishermen hauling in their catch of the day.
