The Island Hideout – Koh Yao Noi, Thailand
The Island Hideout is a place to unwind and literally disconnect from the world. The ethos here is to really switch off and for this reason the lodges are without modern conveniences like electricity, TV or WiFi – yet sometimes you have to unplug to connect.
The resort boasts a small collection of eco-lodges, traditionally built in the Thai style utilising local materials and natural palm leaf roofs. They are luxuriously finished and all have sweeping views across the lush jungle and Phang Nga Bay beyond. Each lodge has a king-sized bed with drapes, an open-air bathroom nestled in the treetops, complete with cool-water tub and rain-shower, vanity sinks and WC, a host of complimentary organic handmade toiletries and cushioned sun loungers looking out over the panoramic views.
Outside the lodges you’ll find an irresistible infinity pool with views over the jungle. But the place won’t only nourish your soul. Nearby is an idyllic farm-to-table restaurant that serves delicious traditionally cooked Thai cuisine by candlelight and features the freshest seafood and produce from the region, traditional spices, sauces and fresh-baked bread. You’ll just want to feast on the entire menu.
