Great staff, peaceful location, great rooms
If you are looking for a place to stay away from all the crowd, elixir is to the place for you. The resort is located in a remote village far from Phuket town. The location is calm and relaxing. There isn't nothing much to do in the island except for resort organized activities, and they do have some interesting activities. There were very few people in the beach, which was clean. Only drawback is you have to depend on the hotel for transfers which is quite expensive. Food was great too. Will recommend this resort for honeymoon couples.

Quiet location, probably best beach on the island
Nice environment, clean, nice beach
Good for rest, nice beach, quiet place. Staff could hardly understend english, but its not novelty in Thailand. There are some good possibility for entertainment, badminton, beach ball etc, but the equipments worn out and they are not capable to replace them even after ! Asked them for several times The beach is cleaned every day, still there are many broken bottles, glass is all around, very dangerous! If I was running this hotel, I would have get these bottles collected immediately. Still the place is ok for a week to stay

Pleasant trip but unaccommodating staff
Scooter rentals to explore this wonderful untouched island, access to scuba snorkeling kayaking & speed boat trips, Very comfy bed, massages & super friendly locals
Overall this was a good place to just get away from it all :)

Peaceful and relaxing excape
Quiet, great food, big private pools
Our stay was great! The perfect way to end our 5 week trip through some counties in SE Asia. The resort is hidden away off a main road. This was the most quiet and peaceful place! It felt like we were the only ones there. Could hear the birds and other nice sounds from longtail boats going by the private beach. It is a bit more run down then the pictures on the website but we were happy with it! The Deluxe private pool villas were the most private with great views!

Wonderful quiet spot
Great staff thanks to Gino and Scott, gorgeous quiet private location
located on a very quiet part of koh yao yai, this hotel is for those seeking quiet as there is literally no other adjacent resorts or town to speak of nearby. you have wonderful western facing sunset views over phuket and a more or less private beach. the rooms are fine, we stayed in a superior villa right next to the pool area and it was fine. you won't get 6 star service from most of the local staff, but gino the gm and scott the chief chef are incredibly friendly, helpful and service oriented to making your stay relaxing and enjoyable. the island is predominantly muslim so there is no beer or liquor for sale outside the hotel and there is very little of a town to speak of, so most all your meals are eaten at the hotel (thank goodness scott is there and customizing the menu). if you are expecting extremely new accomodations and a glitzy stay, this is probably not the spot, but it does feel incredibly comfortable and authentic. it's down a dirt road but has great ais mobile phone connection (don't think other carriers worked), somewhat ok wifi in the public areas ... no internet in rooms to speak of. chill, no frills, comfy spot with very few tourists around. have to take a speedboat from phuket to get there and on windy days there can be very big waves and can get quite choppy. we had two very small kids so i would suggest trying to get on a bigger boat if it feels windy and/or sit in the middle of the speedboat cabin. we caught the last boat out and they packed it probably far above capacity. didn't feel very safe with small kids and a very windy day. fortunately it was only about 25 minute trip. otherwise was no problem. going over on speedboat was not a windy day and didn't feel too bad. rent motorcycles from the shops outside the main entrance for 250 baht a day and you can cruise around the island and/or go over to koh yai noi which we didn't get to but apparently has restaurants or other things to see.

Lovely hotel and great relaxation with nature
Beautiful nature sorrounding and quiet place
i stayed there for 4 days and it was absolutely great! the beach is so amazingly beautiful . the place is very quiet not like partying place like phuket or patong... very good for people who looking for peaceful holiday with great nature .... i recommend for travellers with kids... the daily thai body massage near the pool was so nice every morning to start your day fresh or at the evening to relax staffs are friendly... but hotel foods are so so.... anyway it was one of the great relaxing place ive ever been....
