                Friendly and understanding crew. Activity manager meet up with the boat at pick up with a smile on her face and a professional and friendly approach. Unlike the professional approach, management at the resort didn't live up to it's promisses. Rooms are not as spacious as they look in the pictures and the hus got some bad and noisy AC in the rooms. The pool area isn't what it should be in a resort where swimming in the sea are rare hence tide. The pool bar hasn't been running for ages. Breakfast was great in my opinion but restaurant was really over priced even if they serve nice food. On the other hand we got a recommendations from the dive center to dine at EMM's a 2k walk from the resort. One of few restaurants that serves beer. GLOW has a fine idea and excellent stuff but might have to update one or two things before having a recommendation without reservation.

                Best location, beautiful bungalows”
                Glow resort has thought of everything a traveler may need to enjoy a beautiful stay on Koh Yao Yai island. From the clean, comfortable, private and beautifully decorated bungalows to the well kept grounds and easy island transfers. The private beach is beautiful with light sand and clear water - it's not busy or crowded like other resorts on the island. The staff was very nice and helpful. The resort is in walking distance to great restaurants and cheap scooter rentals. It almost felt like a luxurious camp for us, walking with flashlights to rent movies in the main lodge at night! We hope to return soon.

                The most incredible stay ”
                This place was expensive, but worth it! We arrived to a cold drink and cool flannel, before being whisked to our room. The air con was great and the standards in the room were high. It was lovely having an outdoor shower, particularly at night when you can see the stars! The pool's a good size and temperature, although it could do with being spot cleaned in the mornings-a lot of flies lose their way over night and end up there! The beach is sensational-so picturesque! There are plenty of loungers and enough space. The good and drinks are a little expensive, but being a small and undeveloped island, things are shipped in so you expect to pay a premium. The staff are very attentive and even called us the night before our departure to see if they could help us organise onward transport. All in all, we left to go to Ao Nang, and wished we'd never left! I'd go back to Glow in a heartbeat! Thanks for a great stay!

                We had ind of the pool Villas (115) for six nights. It was airy and beautiful. The pool is big enough for the kids to swim and have fun, and the beach is right in front. Putting kids to sleep and having your dinner delivered to the villa's porch is highly recommended.

                Abysmal . Rude manager. Poor restaurant. Tired resort. The pictures must be very old!”
                Words can't describe how disappointed I was with this hotel. We expected, and paid for, a luxury resort. What we got was a very tired resort, in need of comprehensive refurbishment, with inattentive / unmotivated staff, very poor food in the restaurant (which gave one of us brutal food poisoning), glass on the (very rocky!) beach, and dirty rooms. We had power cuts for 4 hours as the resort doesn't have a back up generator - quite remarkable when the electricity goes down every time it rains hard... The manager was rude when we complained. Wouldn't refund the meal that gave my partner food poisoning and laughed in my face when I suggested they remove the service charge. There'a a lot of great hotels in Thailand, and this isn't one of them. If you want to go to Yao Yai, stay at Santhiya which is incredible, or stay at Paradise on Yao Noi - don't waste your cash on this place, the description and dated pictures misrepresent it!

                Glow Elixir Resort on Koh Yao Yai island is a real delight”
                After a full month of real enjoyment in this sunny and picturesque paradise my wife and I want to share with potential vacationers our experience. It was early January when we arrived there and received a very warm welcome by the Resort’s staff and Resort Manager, Ms Kanthaboon. This was our third visit at Glow Elixir during past14 months. They remembered and knew our “pattern” of daily routines from previous visits, and took fantastic care about them at our every step, during wholesome breakfasts, candle light dinners at the beach restaurant, decorating our room, booking day trips, and many other things. We experienced unprecedented treatment throughout our stay. Their respect was equally and continuously demonstrated with all guests in the Resort, many of them returning guests like us, from Canada, Finland, Switzerland, Germany, just to mention a few. This Resort is both, adult/senior as well as children friendly paradise, accommodation and facilities wise. You do not need fancy attire while in this paradise because everything in the Resort is casual and steps from your beautifully designed villa, regardless if you are in the first or last row of beautifully designed villas. The Resort offers day trips to neighboring islands, Phi Phi, James Bond, and other attractions on Phuket Island, which is just minutes away from Koh Yao Yai. Glow Elixir does not only “glow”, Glow Elixir radiates and shines as best on Koh Yao Yai !

                Pristine beach, quite atmosphere, great food, rooms and staff”
                Koh Yao Yai and Koh Yao No are very very quiet islands. They are not attached to each other but close, and this hotel on Koh Yao Yai has beautiful grounds with mostly European tourists who all seem to value quiet. During our 5 day stay even babies and small children were very quiet compared to USA kids. Most rooms have a pool or outside jacuzzi sized pool option attached to the room. The hotel has a large clean pool just off the beach, a workout room, massage at the pool area, restaurant on the beach for all 3 meals. You can get beer and alcohol at this resort but if you want to have your own, you need to bring it before arriving on this island, island is mostly Muslim, Both men and women drive and women are not in Burka just head covers, everyone seems friendly and welcoming. Not much to do outside hotel. If you rent a scooter you will just see undeveloped nature, a few local areas, few restaurants, local night market, that's about it. But there are a few restaurants down the road from the hotel you can walk to. The hotel can also arrange for you to rent kayaks or do a snorkel, diving trip to PhiPhi or elsewhere. I prefer to spend my time in the resort. My daily routine: Breakfast on the beach, enjoy the completely clean ocean water and sand, then lunch at my room at my outside pool area, later to the the large hotel pool, then dinner at ocean front to see the sunset. Very relaxed day. The staff are all lovely, helpful people. Sunset is so pretty every night. Hotel food is very very good. Most rooms you can enjoy the sunset from your room or come down to the large beach or restaurant area to watch it. You can order drinks and food to be served inside or outside at the restaurant , at the beach, pool or your room. Rooms are very nice, feel spacious, clean, inviting. If you can afford it, book the best room at the top, huge pool area and pretty private, but all rooms are nice. Hotel manager (her name is Gay) is just lovely, welcoming and very helpful. All of the
