You’ll observe fish and coral in the crystal clear waters just off the beach. Splash around in the warm waters and let the gentle sea relax you.

Nature’s Bike Trail of Pure Serenity
This guided bike voyage takes you off the main roads to paths less traveled on the island. You will enjoy a scenic and tranquil tour of an assortment of the island’s well-kept secrets.
Mounted on trekking bikes, you’ll cruise along secluded side roads adorned with arching rubber trees, grazing water buffalo and stunning vistas of the sea. On the journeys, you will observe local plantation workers harvesting rubber by hand, the original method for such production.
Closer to the beach, observe Islanders tinkering with what is the pride and joy for many, the longtail boat. A signature aspect of marine life in Thailand and a most romantic option for touring the myriad islands adjacent to our resort, the longtail boat is inextricably linked to island locals and their humble, noncommercial way of life.
At low tide our journey continues to a small island only 1,640 feet (500 meters) from the Yao Noi coast. That means if the tide is right we will cycle to a different island. Trek through the sand and observe wild oysters on the rocks – this unique paradise is only 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometers) from the resort.
Following an invigorating 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) ride, continue to the renowned Haad Yao Beach. Shaded and secluded, this Yao Noi must-do is only accessible by bicycle or on foot. We highly recommend sharing this journey with a guide as it is the surest way to see the untouched side of Thai island life.
Visit a Rubber Tree Plantation
The south of Thailand is renowned for its rubber production and Six Senses Yao Noi was actually built on an abandoned rubber tree plantation.
Locals still cultivate the trees by hand cutting and collecting the rubber in coconut shells tied to the trunks. Your experienced guide takes you to see how the rubber is collected, rolled into sheets then left to naturally dry along bamboo poles.
Below the Living Room lies a unique feature of Six Senses Yao Noi – the mangrove walk. Take a stroll and spot red mangrove trees, cork trees and Nipa palm trees.
Observe the mudskipper fish and keep an eye out for our resident giant monitor lizards often seen relaxing in the trees. These creatures are awe-inspiring but harmless and will scurry into hiding when disturbed.
Fish and Lobster Farm Visit
Visit a local floating fish farm by classic longtail boat and select your own fresh catch for our chefs to prepare back at the resort. You may enjoy your fresh catch cooked just the way you like it in the Living Room, Dining Room, or even as a barbecue dinner in the comfort of your own villa.
Waterski, Wakeboard and Doughnut
Looking for a boost of adrenaline after all the rest and relaxation? We have a lot of kit here suitable for both first timers and seasoned pros.
With water skis, a wakeboard or a doughnut, fun is guaranteed. Our watersports team can suit you up and run you through the basics or master more advanced techniques. We also loan out mono-skis to more adept athletes.
Our location on the leeward side of the island results in gentle winds that enable youto practice this exciting activity in relative safety. Our watersports instructors offer private lessons, whether finding your balance or honing your technique. We have a variety of sail sizes available for all skill levels and wind speeds.
Colorful Diving Days
